Compensation for Your Car Accident

When someone else’s negligence caused a car accident, you have a right to pursue compensation. The value of your car accident claim depends on several factors, including the type and extent of your injuries, whether you were at fault for the crash, and the at-fault driver’s insurance policy limit. Unfortunately, though, there is no reliable way to determine the value of your claim online or through a damages calculator. The best way to learn about how much compensation you may receive is by contacting a car accident lawyer. Our La Jolla car accident lawyers will work with you to pursue compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium

What If I Was At-Fault?

In some cases, victims are either partially or completely at fault for their accidents. An experienced La Jolla car accident attorney can help you determine whether you contributed to your accident in any way and, if so, how it will impact your damages recovery. You may be considered partially or completely liable for your car accident if you:

  • Broke a traffic law
  • Admitted fault
  • Provided a recorded statement that led to an admission of fault
  • Posted about the accident online
  • Were driving while distracted or impaired

If you were partially liable, you can still recover: The law will simply apply a percentage to your fault and deduct that percentage from the damages you can recover. Our attorneys are familiar with the law on shared liability and will devise the best strategy to overcome liability disputes. We will gather evidence, speak with eyewitnesses, work with experts, and strive to help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries. If it turns out that you were partially liable for the crash, we will take steps to minimize your fault percentage or even eliminate it.
