Determining Your Case’s Value
Each accident has its own unique factors. If the accident was severe, the aftermath is even more stressful, traumatic, and expensive.
As a victim, you may be entitled to recover compensation for items such as:
- Pain and suffering and mental anguish
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
The value of general damages in most personal injury cases is determined by proving liability and calculating all expenses. It can be difficult for you to determine damages yourself, as you may be unfamiliar with filing a large claim. Your lawyer can help you estimate a fair settlement.
Potential Compensation Available After a Car Accident
Those who survive a serious accident are fortunate. However, surviving a car crash can be a long, winding road to recovery. Some individuals become permanently disabled.
This not only affects you, but your whole family will also feel the impact. Plus, you may never reach your career goals.
On the other hand, if your loved one has passed away from a car accident, you may be entitled to recovering damages on your deceased loved one’s behalf, which will ease your financial burden. These damages go towards hospital bills, funeral expenses, and burial. There may be other damages, as well.

Proving the Negligence of the Other Driver
Californian roadways are subject to some of the most diverse terrains and climates in the United States. Unfortunately, poor road conditions can cause accidents. Some accidents happen in part due to:
- Road conditions: Changing speed limits and roadwork
- Weather: Heavy fog, rain, or snow
- Landscape: A network of throughways and mountainous terrain
However, if your car accident occurred due to a negligent driver, a lawyer from our firm can help you establish their liability in the accident and pursue compensation. Some ways a driver can be negligent and cause a car accident are by:
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
- Driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs
- Making an improper turning with using signals
- Failing to yield to the right-of-way
When someone is responsible for your accident, you have a right to pursue an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation for your losses. Recovering fair compensation is not always easy, though. Your attorney can help by speaking to insurance companies on your behalf.
The Statute of Limitations in Your Case
Do not delay because you do not have an unlimited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit. If negotiations with insurers do not result in fair compensation, you will want to give your case a chance to go to trial.
According to the California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §335.1, you only have two years from the date of the accident to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Any lawsuit filed after that time frame may not be considered by the court, and you could lose your right to seek fair compensation.
