How Can an Irvine Car Accident Attorney Help Me?
If you don’t know what car accident attorneys do, you might not understand the value we could add to your case. Our attorneys work hard for each client. We personalize each case to ensure it meets the client’s individual needs. Our legal team understands that you have unique circumstances in your case. We want the way we approach your case to reflect that.
We Can Investigate Your Irvine Car Accident
One of the first steps we can take is to investigate the car accident. We can gather as much evidence as possible to build your case. Examples of evidence we can collect include:
- Statements from witnesses
- Accident reports
- Video Footage
If necessary, we could go to the crash scene to see if we find more evidence relevant to your case. Our Irvine car accident attorneys know how to conduct a proper investigation and will ensure we secure the evidence needed to build your case.
We Can Communicate with the Responsible Party’s Insurance Company
Dealing with the insurance company is probably one of the last things you want to do after sustaining injuries. Fortunately, we can handle those communications for you. You could notice many benefits by having our attorneys speak to the insurance company on your behalf.
First, you can ensure that the insurance adjusters don’t take advantage of you. They might try to make you a low initial offer, but we can intercept all offers and inform you whether it’s a good idea to accept.
Another benefit of us taking over communications is that you get to relax. After suffering injuries and undergoing medical treatments, you don’t need more stress from dealing with the insurance company. Let us handle those stresses so you don’t have to.
We Can Calculate the Value of Your Losses
When you sustain injuries in a car accident, you could recover more compensation than just the costs of your medical bills and property damage. Our attorneys understand the damages you could recover. We can determine the value of your case by ensuring we seek compensation for all your losses, including non-monetary losses.
Examples of damages our firm can fight for you to recover include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income
- Lowered earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Emotional distress
Calculating the value of these damages can help us know how much compensation to fight for during negotiations.
We Can Negotiate a Fair Settlement Agreement
Once we know the estimated value of your losses by calculating your damages, we can seek that amount of compensation through negotiations. Our Irvine car accident lawyers are strong negotiators who know how to present a strong argument.
We can come to negotiations with an organized case. If the opposing counsel fights back, we aren’t afraid to stand up to them.
We Can Represent You in a Lawsuit
We may choose to file a lawsuit at any point during negotiations. We will continue negotiating on your behalf after filing a lawsuit, and most personal injury cases settle before reaching a courtroom. However, we are not afraid to take your case in front of a judge and jury if negotiations fail.
You Have a Limited Time to File an Irvine Car Accident Lawsuit
CCP § 335.1 states that you must file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party within two years. By filing a lawsuit, you can regain your power and hold the responsible party accountable. Our attorneys can work hard to help you meet deadlines, so you have the opportunity to recover compensation.
When you contact us shortly after the accident, you give us more time to build a strong case. Developing a case takes time and resources. To have the best chance at recovering compensation, we recommend contacting our law firm as soon as possible after the accident.
Common Causes of Irvine Car Accidents
Many people can avoid car accidents by driving attentively and following the laws of the road. When they don’t, car accidents can happen. One of the most common causes of car accidents is texting and driving. Many vehicle operators believe they can send a quick text without causing any problems. Unfortunately, even a quick text could require the driver to take their eyes off the road long enough to cause an accident.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that other common causes of car accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
During our investigation, we can determine what caused the accident. Then, we can identify the liable party based on the cause.
