Things to Know After Getting Injured in a Car Accident
When you suffer injuries in a traffic collision, you may suddenly face expenses and questions you may not have been prepared for. Depending on the type and severity of accident-related injuries, you may be dealing with mounting medical expenses. Another concern is when you will return to work and get your life back on track. If you suffered a serious injury, you may also be worried about what your future may be like, especially if it has impacted all aspects of life for you and your family. In such situations, you may be able to seek financial recovery of injuries and losses incurred through a personal injury claim filed with the insurer representing the other driver.
Keep in mind that California has time limitations on filing a lawsuit for a car accident if a fair settlement cannot be reached with the insurance carrier. Under the California Code of Civil Procedure Section 335.1, an injured party has two years to file a lawsuit in civil court, and the clock generally starts running the date of the incident. This is why it is essential to speak with an experienced injury lawyer right away. While this may seem like ample time, the reality is that it may take months to conduct an investigation of the car accident and determine the true extent of losses and accident-related injuries. Claims adjusters may also use various defense tactics to attempt to stall out your case. For more details on the claims process and the myriad of factors involved, watch this video.
How Our Law Firm Can Help You
A motor vehicle collision may happen for a wide array of reasons, many of which are attributable to driver error.

Our legal team can conduct an independent investigation of the incident to determine the sequence of events leading up to it to properly determine fault. This is essential in the claims process as it is not uncommon for the insurance company to shift fault onto the injured party as a way of limiting their liability for the claim. We will also review images and video surveillance of the wreck, collect eyewitness statements, and work with expert witnesses who can provide options on what happened, and the extent of damages incurred. This will help us prove fault on the part of the other driver in which we will use to seek a fair financial recovery on your behalf.
