Types of California Car Accident Cases We Handle

The best car accident attorneys in California tend to be those who have successfully handled a variety of claims. Each case is unique, and it takes experience and finely tuned legal strategies to overcome the hurdles standing between accident victims and a fair settlement.

The personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers are seasoned litigators who assist clients in the following types of auto accident cases:

Do I Have Grounds for a Car Accident Claim?

If you intend to file a third-party claim against another driver or his/her insurance company, it must be shown that the other driver owed you a duty of care and breached that duty of care. All motorists on California roads have a duty to drive safely and avoid reckless behaviors that would put other people in danger. They breach this duty of care when they:

  • Drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Drive while distracted;
  • Make illegal turns;
  • Fail to keep their vehicles safe;
  • Break the speed limit; or
  • Engage in other illegal or reckless behaviors.

If your accident was caused by a negligent driver, you have the right to pursue compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages you have incurred as a result. Unfortunately, even if it seems obvious that another person is liable for your damages, you still might run into a dispute at some point during the claims process. This is where the California car accident attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can help.

We know the strategies used by insurance companies and defendants in car accident cases to reduce their liability. Insurance adjusters might try to manipulate you into making a recorded statement that can be used against you. They might offer a low settlement before you know the full extent of your injuries. They might even review your social media profiles for images that can be used to dispute the severity of your injuries.

No matter what the insurance adjuster tells you, the insurance company is not on your side when you file a claim against them. You should never speak to the insurance adjuster—and you certainly should not accept a settlement offer—without consulting an experienced car accident attorney.

The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is here to answer your questions and guide you through the claims process. We will handle correspondence with the insurance company so they cannot take advantage of you. We will perform a thorough investigation into your case, gather evidence before it becomes unavailable, speak with eyewitnesses, and aggressively represent your interests during settlement negotiations.

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

No attorney in California can guarantee a specific outcome for your case. But our legal team can evaluate your case during a free consultation and offer predictions based on relevant laws and past case outcomes.

There are numerous factors that will influence whether your claim is successful and the amount of compensation you ultimately recover. Those factors include:

  • The cost of the medical bills you have incurred;
  • The cost of any future medical treatment you will need;
  • The amount of income you lost due to your injuries;
  • Whether your injuries have affected your future earning capacity;
  • Whether you required home modifications to accommodate your injury;
  • The cost of fixing your vehicle;
  • Whether your injury caused scarring, disability, or the loss of a bodily function; and
  • Whether the driver who caused your injury acted with fraud, malice, or oppression—in which case exemplary damages (or punitive damages) may be recoverable.
