How Our Santa Monica Car Accident Lawyers Can Help
When you anticipate receiving an auto insurance settlement, you may wonder how a car accident attorney in Santa Monica can help.
To begin with, we will immediately investigate the crash. We gather as much evidence as possible, including photos and video from cellphones, dashboard cameras, and nearby surveillance or traffic cameras. We will obtain eyewitness statements and the police accident report.
If the other driver was an employee of a business, we may recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit right away. Through the discovery phase of litigation, we can gather additional evidence, including the employee’s driving record, vehicle maintenance records, and other business records.
If your car accident is more complex than usual, we may hire an expert witness, such as an accident re-constructionist. We also may hire medical, vocational, and financial experts to testify regarding your injuries, future abilities, and future expenses and income.
By analyzing all of the available evidence, we can determine why the crash occurred and who is at fault. We also will calculate the maximum value of your economic and non-economic injuries. This enables us to pursue a settlement through the insurance claim process or to prepare to take your case to trial.
We will show the at-fault party that we are not afraid to right for full and fair compensation for your injuries. We will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation possible through insurance settlement negotiations. If a settlement is unavailable, we will not hesitate to fight for your right to compensation at trial.
