Insurance companies don’t care about fairness or compassionate care for accident victims. After a crash, the insurance company for the other driver will begin collecting evidence and trying to minimize your injuries and the value of your case.

Understanding Your Rights
When you’re injured by the negligence of another you are entitled to compensation for your medical treatment and bills. The damages that may be awarded in these cases are often substantial, extending from compensation for medical bills, the costs of future treatment, lost income and earning capacity, and property damage to the pain and suffering that the victim endured. It is critical to take legal action as soon as possible after an accident, since the California statute of limitations restricts the time period within which a victim may bring a claim.
If you are injured in a car accident, where other drivers were at fault, your attorney will need to identify all of the parties that were potentially at fault property owners that permitted dangerous conditions on the road, and manufacturers of malfunctioning automobile parts. Most car crashes result from negligence by one or more drivers.
A jury will award special (economic) and general (noneconomic) damages when liability is established in an accident case. Special damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and household services. General Damages include a persons loss of quality of life, including pain, suffering and emotional distress.
In some cases, the at fault party does not have sufficient insurance or assets to cover the injuries to our clients. You may be able to recover your full damages from your own automobile insurance policy.
