We Will Investigate Your Crash
To successfully pursue compensation through an insurance claim or car accident lawsuit, you need to know who caused the crash and why. This is why our auto accident lawyers in Fullerton immediately begin independent and in-depth investigations into their clients’ crashes. We gather the police report, photos and videos of the crash, eyewitness statements, and more to determine what happened, why, and who was at fault.
Depending on the complexity of the case and who was involved, we may need to file a lawsuit. During the litigation process, every case goes through the discovery phase. During discovery, each party can demand information from the other. This is often how we find out additional information about drivers, vehicle owners, and businesses involved in our clients’ car accidents.
Common Causes of Car Crashes in Fullerton, CA
Through an in-depth investigation, we often find the cause of a collision is:
- Impaired driving
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Reckless driving
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Failing to adhere to traffic devices
- Failing to merge properly
- Failing to change lanes properly and safely
- Following too closely
We also have uncovered accidents in which vehicle defects are to blame. In this case, we may pursue compensation from a vehicle manufacturer or retailer instead of an at-fault driver, the driver’s employer, or the vehicle owner.
Establishing Your Case and Receiving Compensation
To win compensation after a car accident, you must prove several elements:
- The other driver owed you a duty of care. All drivers are required to uphold the duty of ordinary care. They must act as a reasonably prudent person would under the same or similar circumstances.
- The driver breached the duty of care. You must prove the other driver failed to act as a reasonably prudent person would under the circumstances. In other words, the driver was careless.
- The driver’s breach of duty caused the crash. You must establish direct and proximate cause between the other driver’s carelessness and the collision.
- The accident led to your injuries. You must prove you suffered real physical injuries.
By proving these four elements, you may win an insurance settlement or a court judgment that includes compensation for your:
- Past and Future Medical Bills
- Lost Income and Employment Benefits
- Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Reduced Earning Potential
- Lower Quality of Life
- Loss of Spousal Affection and Relationship (Consortium)
We Also Handle Fatal Car Accident Claims
If your spouse, parent, or child was the victim of a fatal car accident, contact our Fullerton car accident lawyers as soon as possible. We will explain California’s wrongful death law and analyze whether you or another relative or executor can file this type of claim. If survivors are entitled to compensation, we will discuss your compensable injuries and the potential value of your claim.
