If you or a loved one was hurt in a collision, you could recover compensation through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Although California’s roads are necessary to allow people to get to and from their destinations, that does not excuse reckless misconduct––and you have financial recovery options.
Greenberg Gross’ Sacramento car accident lawyers want to help automobile accident survivors like you get through this difficult period. During your free case review, we can explain your options, safeguard your rights, and guide you through the claims process. We strive to offer hope during this challenging period.

Our Lawyers Intend to Seek Full Compensation for Your Losses
We believe that compensation should account for each way the collision has affected your life, both now and in the future. As such, your compensable losses may comprise economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Healthcare expenses, including payment for medications, surgeries, hospitalization, and ambulance transportation
- Lost income, benefits, bonuses, and commissions
- Loss of future earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- The cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle
- Scarring and disfigurement
We can also recoup the cost of anything you spent out of pocket. Your car accident lawyer in Sacramento will do everything in their power to resolve your case, even if that means battling the other party in court.
Your Legal Team Complies With All Case-Related Deadlines
California Code of Civil Procedure § 335.1 notes that you generally have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Once that period passes, you can’t file a lawsuit––even if you otherwise have a compelling case.
Additionally, the absence of the crash site, loss of evidence, and the deterioration of witness testimonies over time can affect your case’s validity. That’s why we encourage you to connect with us as soon after your accident as possible. That way, we can file your case before the statute of limitations expires and gather time-sensitive evidence.
Our Lawyers Can Learn Fault and Liability for Your Accident
To compel compensation from the liable party, we must learn the cause of your collision. This requires our team to launch an investigation into the who, what, where, and why of your accident. Your injury lawyer serving Sacramento can find and use the following information to support your case:
- Eyewitness testimony
- Photos and videos of the accident scene
- Your imaging scan results
- The police report
- Information from an accident reconstruction specialist
- Receipts, invoices, and bills related to your damages
While your case unfolds, we encourage you to keep all written correspondence between yourself and the liable insurance company. That way, if the insurer goes back on its word later, you have written proof of what it promised.
We Can Learn the Cause of Your Accident
After concluding our investigation, we may find one or more of the following factors caused your collision:
- Distracted driving
- Poor roadway conditions
- Inclement weather
- Vehicular malfunction
- Disobeying traffic signals
- Road rage
We Advocate for People Suffering from These Collision-Related Injuries
Some potential clients call and ask us whether their injuries are serious enough to recover compensation. If you suffered injuries because of another party’s negligence, we want to hear from you. As noted, we plan to do everything possible to secure compensation for your medical bills and other related expenses.
Some injuries you may have suffered in the collision include:
- Traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions
- Broken bones
- Lacerations and blood loss
- Nerve damage
- Soft-tissue injuries, such as whiplash
- Spinal cord trauma
- Crushing injuries
The team at Greenberg Gross encourages you to seek medical attention after your collision. Don’t wait until the insurance company offers fair compensation. Visiting a healthcare provider as soon as possible is in your best interest.
