Why you should hire an attorney after an accident

It is a common misconception that after a car accident, letting insurance companies handle the claiming process is the correct course of action. Even worse, trying to handle everything by yourself puts a lot of pain and suffering in your mind when you otherwise should be just focusing on recovering from your injuries.

A personal injury attorney handling your case will:

1. Get the real value of your injuries: Insurance adjusters normally will try to downplay your damages and lower the value of your injuries. A car accident will not accept these lowball offers and will always fight to win for you what you really deserve

2. Offer you legal options: A personal injury lawyer handling your case will know the best course of action to take for you to win the maximum possible compensation for your injuries. Commonly, the party at fault will try to deny liability. Having an experienced attorney by your side will give you the best options to proceed be it just an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit when possible.

3. Gather all pertinent evidence: Trying to handle an accident claim on your own can be a difficult process, more so if we consider the evidence needed to hold the ones at fault responsible. A lawyer will do this for you and will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case.

4. Be mindful of deadlines: Because of the statute of limitations in California, you only have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. Your lawyer will take this into account and speed up the process accordingly for you to settle your case before this deadline.

Common Injuries in Car Accidents

Just as with every accident, so are the injuries that can be suffered as a result. When you get in a car collision, depending on its nature there are a variety of injuries one gets.

From the thousands of clients we have helped recover their health, we find that the most common injuries in car accidents are:

1. Whiplash: The most common injury after a car collision. It happens due to sudden movement of the neck because of the force of impact. It can cause symptoms from minor pain and difficulty moving to severe complications and spinal injuries due to vertebrae connecting the spinal cord from the body to the brain.

2. Bone fractures: Because of the forces involved in a car wreck, bone fractures are common injuries suffered in these incidents. They can include crushed bones, broken ribs, and extremities, skull fractures, hip displacements, back injuries, among others.

3. Head Injuries: Impact on the steering wheel, windows or dashboard can cause injuries to the head. From scrapes or cuts to concussions and skull fractures, a head injury can have severe consequences for your health.

4. Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): Intrinsically tied to head injuries, brain injuries can have severe long-term consequences for the victims and provoke severe disabilities. If you were the victim of a TBI because of an accident our brain injury lawyers can help you get the right medical treatment and help you get compensated by the parties at fault.

5. Back Injuries: Another very common injury because of the collision’s impact, back injuries might not be felt at first, but the symptoms can appear at any moment. Even though you might think you just have minor pain in the lower back, a spinal cord injury can have debilitating consequences and lead to long-term disability.

6. Internal Injuries: A serious collision can cause internal organ damage to the victim because of the forces involved. Internal bleeding is a common consequence that requires immediate medical attention.

7. Soft Tissue Damage: scrapes, cuts, muscle sprains are commonly called soft tissue damage and normally occur due to objects flying inside the car or by colliding with windows, the steering wheel, or the car’s dashboard.

Injuries can also be divided by their severity. As every individual will react differently to them, several forms of treatment might be recommended depending on the present symptoms.

Our team of medical examiners will follow up with you diligently and pursue the appropriate medical procedures depending on the evolution of your injuries, always acting with your best interest in mind for you to achieve proper recuperation.

How are minor car accident injuries usually treatment

We recommend that no matter the extent of your injuries, the pain, or lack thereof you should always get immediate medical treatment after a car accident.

Minor injuries can easily be treated with physical therapy, painkillers, chiropractic care, and the most important thing of all, rest.

Nevertheless, medical follow-ups and examinations are essential to be sure that a minor injury does not progress into a severe one. Try to follow up on your doctor’s orders as close as possible so you can recuperate from minor car accident injuries faster.

Usual treatment for major car accident injuries

Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers - Personal Injuries and Medical Treatment

Major injuries after a car accident can have severe consequences on your health and might require extensive long-term treatment. Depending on the nature and consequences of the injuries various treatments might be recommended to relieve pain and other major symptoms.

For example, because of the pain and disabilities that come from a back injury in a car collision, and all the body systems the spinal cord affects, seeing just a physical therapist or a chiropractor.

A heavy injury to the back, coupled with a TBI like in our next example will need extensive treatment from various specialists as well as need a wide variety of medical examinations to properly assess the treatment needed.

How to reduce the risk of a car accident

Safety tips to prevent accidents - Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers

Prevention is always the best way to avoid getting in a car accident. Being aware of the road and following traffic safety recommendations will put us at an advantage in places such as the busy streets of Los Angeles. 

Some key defensive driving practices that will help you prevent accidents are:

  • Pull into traffic slowly: Be aware of other drivers around you. Keep high awareness of blind spots such as the ones in the rearview mirror and behind the windshield pillars or road signs when pulling into traffic.
  • Watch out for red-light runners: Slowly count down to three before entering an intersection on a green light. Look both ways and be sure no one is traveling at high speeds through a yellow light.
  • Keep your hands on the steering wheel: Reduce car distractions such as changing radio stations or songs on your phone, eating, or taking your hands off the wheel unless necessary (such as shifting gears on a stick-shift car)
  • Watch out for kids: Children have the habit of suddenly popping out between parked cars and into roadways. If you are going through a residential neighborhood, pay special attention to kids playing on the street and drive slowly.
  • Perform regular maintenance on your car: Avoid sudden stalls or other vehicular failures by performing regular maintenance. Among the most common procedures to keep your ride in good condition are oil changes and checkups and keeping tires properly inflated.
  • Scan 12 seconds ahead: Always concentrate on areas where you will be driving in about 10 seconds. When on the highway, position yourself far enough from other vehicles that a sudden stop would let you swerve and avoid a collision.
  • Do not tailgate: Leave a 3 to 5-second cushion between you and the cars ahead of you. Tailgating might be tempting when in a hurry, but it is also a huge cause of car accidents. It is better to get a little bit late to your destination than not getting there at all, always remember that.
  • Keep your distance: Drive far enough both in front and behind other vehicles so anyone can make a sudden stop without causing a major accident.

Following these simple tips will put you a long way ahead in preventing accidents. While you don’t need to memorize the whole California vehicle code to know the ins and outs of traffic laws, learning the basics of good road behavior will substantially decrease the probability of getting in a car accident.

Liability and fault in a car accident

In a vehicular collision, every state has different laws regarding fault and liability. Normally classified as at-fault states or no-fault states, their category will determine how responsibility for the incident is determined.

In at-fault states, the fault driver or party for all the damages they cause whereas in no-fault states drivers are required by law to maintain no-fault insurance policies to cover the costs of an accident.

California is considered an at-fault state and as such liability is determined according to who caused the accident. Being at fault for a collision binds you by law to pay the resulting damages to the victim following your insurance policy limits.

In case there’s shared responsibility between multiple parties in a car accident, each party must cover a percentage of the damages depending on their grade of involvement or fault in the accident. For example:

Let’s say three 3 parties are involved in an accident at an intersection. One party ran the red light, another did an unsafe turn to the left that invaded our last party’s lane which provoked someone to get hit and caused a three-way collision.

Depending on the grade of responsibility determined for the parties at fault, each one will pay a percentage of the damages to the victim of the accident.

Negligence laws in California

Liability and Applicable Law - Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers

In-car accidents, negligent driving is mostly attributed to specific actions undertaken by the driver. But the one standard to truly meet the criteria for negligent driving is called “Duty to Care”.

This means that drivers must act to preserve the well-being of fellow motorists on the road, so they can make decisions on the fly to avoid any injury or damage to others and their property. In the US, just as with liability, states categorize themselves on the way they handle negligence according to state laws.

The main negligence law categories are:

  1. Comparative negligence: Both drivers involved in the accident can share the responsibility for the accident. States that follow this doctrine, would allocate a percentage of the blame on the parties involved and will adjust compensation accordingly. California is a comparative negligence state.
  2. Contributory negligence: In contributory negligence states, if one of the parties involved was also partially at fault, they will not be able to seek compensation for the damages incurred in the accident. Only five states in the country still hold contributory negligence laws, these are Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
