Car Accident 2

Car accidents can change your life in an instant. California was built to require a car or automobile to get around. Especially in Los Angeles, California, we use automobiles and cars to get around town to drive to work, meet our friends, go to appointments. It’s rare to find a Californian or Los Angeleno who has not either driven in or ridden in a car, bus, truck, or other type of motor vehicle. As a result of this, California roads are busy and congested with traffic and restless people in a hurry to arrive to their next destination.

According to the 2019 Global Traffic Scorecard released by Inrix Inc., Los Angeles alone has the top two worst traffic corridors in the nation. Ranked first is the Santa Ana 5 Freeway from the San Bernardino I-10 Freeway to San Gabriel River 605 Freeway. Ranked second is Hollywood 101 Freeway from Ventura 134 Freeway to Harbor I-110 Freeway. Because there are so many cars, motor vehicles, and automobiles on the road, it’s no surprise that car collisions happen all the time and cause catastrophic personal injuries.

Most people who are injured as a result of an automobile collision sustain permanent damage and injuries like, brain injuries, spine injuries, back injuries, arm injuries, orthopedic injuries, and other serious ailments that severely impact their lives. Worse, many auto accidents result in death, leaving surviving family members to suffer both emotional and financial hardships.

Filing an Insurance Claim Is Just the Beginning

If you were harmed in a car crash that was caused by someone else, the legal system allows you to recover for your injuries and damages. The law holds the party who caused the crash accountable for your harm and injuries.

The car accident is only the beginning of an extremely long and intricate process of filing an insurance claim, determining fault, and recovering for the injuries you sustained as a result of the collision. Having to defend your rights against both the insurance companies and defense counsel while you’re healing from your injury can be difficult and exhausting. A personal injury attorney can really help and ensure that you are receiving the compensation and treatment you are entitled to.

After a car accident, a personal injury attorney can help you recover and heal from one of the most life altering experiences of your life. Regardless of the extent or severity of the collision and your injuries, you should always immediately speak with a Los Angeles car accident attorney after a car accident.

After a car accident, injured victims often rely on insurance companies to help them recover from the accident.

Treat your injuries

After a car accident or auto collision, it is important that you immediately seek medical attention. Minor crashes, low speed accidents, or even low impact collisions can cause serious injuries and affect everybody differently. Do not be fooled by the severity of the collision to determine the severity of your injuries. Get treatment from your medical provider as soon as possible for a full examination of injuries. Also, you may experience pain a few days after the accident, which is normal.

Common injuries victims of motor accidents suffer from are:

Injury

Many of these injuries require specialized and long-term treatment, rehabilitation, and medication, especially if not treated promptly and properly. For example, whiplash may cause a victim to experience chronic headaches and pain after an accident, which get worse without immediate treatment.

Or, an accident victim may sustain a traumatic brain injury after hitting their head against something during the accident. Traumatic brain injuries will cause permanent brain damage and impact a victim’s future, especially without proper treatment.

Additionally, seeing a doctor immediately after a car accident is important for your claim. The longer you wait to be treated after a crash, the more likely an insurance company is to deny your claim and believe you were not actually injured, when in reality you were.

Determining who is at fault in a car accident

When an auto accident happens, liability may appear to be clear, but there are many factors at play in determining liability. To prevail on a car accident case, an injured victim must prove:

  • Duty: The injured victim needs to prove that the driver owed a duty to him or her. Drivers owe a duty of care to those around them the second they begin to operate their car. In other words, drivers must act with a reasonable amount of care and caution when operating a car in order to avoid needless injuries on the road.
  • Breach: Next, the injured victim needs to prove that the driver responsible for their harm breached their duty of reasonable care by failing to act like a reasonably prudent person under the same or similar circumstances.
  • Causation: The injured victim must next prove that the driver’s breach (or negligence) directly caused his or her injuries. Simply put, the accident victim must prove that his or her injuries and damages were caused by the negligent driver’s actions.
  • Damages: Finally, the injured victim must prove that he or she suffered monetary losses, such as medical bills or loss of income, as a result of the car accident.

 

Sometimes determining who is at fault can be a fact intensive and contested issue. After the accident, many people or entities may investigate the claim to determine fault. For example, a police officer may investigate the scene and interview parties and witnesses to determine whether any party failed to obey traffic laws or committed a crime and caused the crash. Insurance companies may examine the facts and circumstances to determine who contributed to the accident. Experts or accident reconstructionist may also evaluate the data and circumstances of the crash to determine who is at fault and responsible for the collision. A judge in court or even a jury may assess fault by looking at the evidence in formal legal proceedings such as trials or motions.

A car accident attorney can be extremely helpful and necessary in determining and proving liability in an auto accident case. 

Avoid making these common mistakes after a car accident

After you have been injured in a car accident, there are certain things that you should avoid doing to prevent sabotaging your case.

  • Do not talk to about liability with ANYONE, especially the person who caused your injury
  • Do not discuss your case with others
  • Do not post details of your case or injuries online, EVERYTHING you post on online can be found and used against you
  • Do not talk to the other party’s insurance company especially if you have retained an attorney to represent you
  • Do not self-diagnose injuries
  • Do not participate in activities too soon
  • Do not downplay your injuries
  • Do not hire an inexperienced attorney

 

Instead, you should do the following:

  • Always keep your lawyer informed about your case, your health, and your life
  • Be completely transparent and honest with your attorney, and tell your lawyer about all your past injuries and lawsuits
  • Respond to your attorney’s phone calls and update your contact information
  • Go to the doctor immediately
  • Follow your doctor’s orders and treatment plan
  • Hire an experienced personal injury attorney skilled in car accidents

 

The success of your case depends upon the steps you take after you’ve been injured in a car crash. To put yourself in the best position to recover for your injuries and damages, you should not make common mistakes that are very damaging to your claim. For example, you must get medical treatment, and follow your doctor’s treatment plan and instructions. If you don’t, you are at risk of never recovering from your injury and being denied a claim.

Additionally, you can really harm you case if you are not 100% transparent with your lawyer. You must tell your attorney about all your previous injuries and lawsuits. Do not talk to anyone except your attorney about the facts of your case, especially the opposing party. You never want anything you may say to be used against you or twisted. Talking to the other party’s insurance company can be the single most damaging mistake in a car accident case. So, just stay tight lipped and defer to your attorney.

Common causes of Car Crashes

Car accidents happen within a blink of an eye and cause so much shock and trauma. Often times, a car accident happens when a driver makes a poor decision while driving, or has bad judgement calls on the road. A driver’s bad choices are legally called negligence. Negligence is when someone fails to act with reasonable care in a given situation, and consequently causes someone to get hurt.

There are many things that can cause a car crash, link speed, road conditions, a vehicle malfunction. But most commonly, a motor vehicle accident is caused as a result of the following circumstances:

  • Distracted driving (i.e. texting, talking on the phone)

  • Speeding drivers
  • Reckless driving (i.e. weaving in and out of traffic, excessive speeds, dangerous turns, street racing, disobeying traffic signals and signs)
  • Driving and falling asleep
