Car Accidents in California
When it comes to car accidents, California has a dismal record. The state sits among those with the highest annual number of fatal car accidents, and Los Angeles County, in particular, has an alarming rate of accidents that lead to injuries and fatalities. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) reports that in 2018, more than 91,000 people were injured or killed in collisions in Los Angeles County. The county also has some of the highest rates in the state of accidents involving alcohol, motorcycles, and nighttime driving.
Some of the most common car accident injuries include whiplash, which can occur when the sudden force of a vehicle collision causes the neck to snap back and forth quickly. Symptoms such as neck pain, limited range of motion, blurred vision, and headaches can set in within a few days and sometimes become a chronic condition.
Other types of serious car accident injuries, such as those that result from blunt force trauma, can lead to short-term or permanent disabilities that make it difficult for victims to return to work or even complete daily tasks.
What You Can Do After Your Accident
After you have suffered injuries in a car accident and received the appropriate medical treatment, there are some steps you can take to help you prepare to pursue financial recovery for your losses.
The first step is gathering evidence. Certain types of evidence can prove helpful in determining the negligence of another party in your accident who acted outside of the law and caused your injuries. Information that can help establish liability in your case might include:
- Videos and photos from the accident scene, particularly those of property damage and injuries
- Information about the location of the accident, including date, time, road conditions, and weather
- Information about other passengers and drivers, including insurance and license plate details, if possible
- Statements from eyewitnesses who saw the accident
Keep any of this evidence if it is already in your possession. An Inglewood car accident lawyer Jacoby & Meyers Law Offices can help you gather the rest.
It is also important to avoid providing insurance adjusters with statements that might indicate you were at fault in the accident. Furthermore, Jacoby & Meyers Law Offices recommends that you do not accept any settlement offers from insurance adjusters without fully evaluating your damages. Most settlement offers are final and accepting a low offer could leave you with out-of-pocket expenses. Allow us to communicate with the insurance company and evaluate the potential value of your case when we represent you.

Seeking Financial Recovery in Your Car Accident Case
Car accident victims may qualify for monetary awards to help them recover physically and financially from the injuries they suffered. Medical bills can add up very quickly, particularly for injuries that require emergency medical care and other types of treatment such as surgeries, testing, follow-up visits, the use of equipment, and medications. If you cannot work during your recovery, it can be even more difficult to get back on your feet financially. Jacoby & Meyers Law Offices can help you seek compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering, as well as lost wages and/or loss of future income.
Car accidents can also lead to significant vehicle damage that leaves victims either struggling to pay expensive mechanic and autobody bills or trying to purchase a new vehicle while already suffering from financial distress. Our lawyers can also help you seek financial recovery to repair or replace your car so you can get where you need to be.
