San Diego Car accident cases are by far the most common type of personal injury case in our court system today. This is not surprising: according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), every 10 seconds someone in the United States is involved in a car accident.
But unlike the every-day occurrence of these accidents, the injuries people suffer in them can vary greatly. Injuries can range from dizziness, headaches, or soft-tissue pain all the way to more severe life-altering injuries, such as paralysis.
Our firm has represented a number of car accident victims with different injuries, such as those with:
Our attorneys know the impact car accidents can have on someone’s life and those around them. Whether small or large, we take all car accident injuries seriously and do our best to get you back in the position you were in before the accident occurred.
Life can simply change at a moment’s notice.

Your car is totaled, you’re in extreme pain, and you’re worried your future – whether it is your ability to get back to work and provide for your family and loved ones, or being able to enjoy the quality of life you once had. This type of scenario happens way too often.

We will make sure those responsible for your injuries will be held fully accountable, and we will guide you through the litigation process.

In the meantime do not speak or sign any documents with the other party’s insurer. Often that insurer is not looking out for your best interests, and may want to extract information from you or have you pay pennies on the dollar to settle and release your claim.
No, it’s probably not.
As a business, insurance companies are primarily concerned with limiting their payout. This means they want to discount the harms their insureds cause to you, making your needs secondary to their financial portfolio. While the other party’s insurance company may offer you what you think is an attractive settlement offer, it’s often a fraction of what the company actually owes you.
Car accident victims and the families of those who have died in car accidents face challenging situations that are further complicated by complex California insurance laws and legal issues. Without experienced representation, insurers will keep sending low-ball offers, hoping victims will bite.
You should contact an experienced attorney who will put your needs before the insurance company’s financial interests. It is always best to discuss your situation with a skilled attorney before discussing settlement with an insurance representative. Do not settle for chump change.
It doesn’t matter. Even if you are partially at fault for the car accident, you may still recover damages for your injuries. California is a “pure comparative negligence state, which means that you can recover damages from any other at-fault party. However, the damages you receive will be reduced by the percentage that you were at fault. For example, if you were deemed to be 25% at fault for an accident, and your damages were $100,000, you would receive $75,000.
We handle insured, uninsured, and hit-and-run car accident cases often and we are very familiar with the issues that arise in them. Don’t immediately assume the blame for the accident or lose confidence that the other driver has adequate insurance or the hit-and-run driver will be found. We do these type of cases every day and we are skilled in solving problems for our clients. Let us do the same for you.
It is also important to know that drunk drivers, defective tires, dangerous road conditions, and improperly placed traffic signs contribute to thousands of car accidents in California each year. If you’re injuries stem from these dangers, please give us a call. We have brought and won millions of dollars for our clients in these cases, and we may be able to do the same for you.
