After medics with the Sacramento Metro Fire District arrived, they transported one patient to Kaiser South Sacramento Medical Center. The accident investigation is ongoing to determine the cause. 

Why Place a Claim for Injury Compensation?

There are a number of reasons you should, especially if serious injuries are involved. Most cases end up settling out of court with the insurance company. Your personal injury lawyer can negotiate the claim for you, which is usually two to three times higher than if you handle it yourself.

Why Not Just Settle With the Insurance Company Yourself?

Insurance companies commonly low-ball the amount they offer an injured person. Of course, they are in business to make money, so it benefits the company if the injured party takes a low offer, especially after the medical bills start rolling in and they are off work and missing their paycheck. However, if they settle too soon and for a low amount, they may find their bills continuing to escalate and cannot go back to the insurance company to get them paid.

What Can I Recover in Damages by Filing a Claim?

The areas listed below are what can be recovered in a personal injury claim. Your lawyer will ensure that everything is included, so you won’t be facing any further bills down the line. Recoverable compensation includes:

  • All medical expenses related to the accident can be claimed. This includes the ambulance fee, hospitalization, doctors’ bills, specialists, testing, prescriptions, rehabilitation, and even trips to and from the physician’s office later. If the injury is expected to continue into the future, that is factored in.
  • Lost wages, including bonuses and other job inclusions with a monetary value, can be recovered. If the injured party has to take a downgrade because they can no longer perform their job, that is factored in. In addition, if the injured party is permanently disabled and cannot work, compensation can be recovered until the normal age of retirement.
  • Damage to the marriage is recovered. The personal relationship between spouses as well as the loss of affection, assistance, and society can be recovered as well as the loss of consortium
  • Disfigurement and scarring can leave a person with emotional and psychological damage. Compensation for these areas is recoverable as well as the cost of the plastic surgery to improve the disfigurement if it is possible. 

Airport Traffic Accident

A traffic accident commonly occurs at area airports because of the congestion of motor vehicles, pedestrians, rideshares such as Uber, rental cars, buses, and others. Liability when someone is injured by a negligent motorist or in some other way, depends on several factors. In addition, other factors may be responsible for an accident injury, such as poor maintenance. Our legal team is experienced in handling these types of cases to determine liability and build a strong case for compensation following an airport car accident
