Ventura Personal Injury Lawyers | Accident Attorneys
Ventura Car Accident Lawyer
Were you or a relative the victim of a serious car accident? When you are injured or your loved one is killed in a crash, we recommend calling a Ventura car accident attorney at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. After car accidents, many people try to handle the insurance claim process themselves. This puts you at a disadvantage. Insurance adjusters handle car accident claims every day. They know how to deny claims and get people to accept low ball offers.
By working with an attorney experienced in car accidents, you have a better chance of having your claim approved and of receiving fair compensation. Call us at 1-800-GO-HARRIS to talk about your eligibility to pursue compensation and the potential value of your claim. We have helped more than 5,000 clients win over $300 million in settlements and court rulings.
We offer free consultations.

Through this investigation, we will uncover not only what happened, but who was directly at fault. We also will identify who is liable for compensating you for your injuries.

Our Ventura car accident lawyers have handled cases involving catastrophic and disabling injuries. We understand crashes can have devastating consequences. Because of a permanent injury, you may not be able to return to your previous employment or hold a full-time job. You may not be able to take care of yourself, and you may need medical care for the rest of your life. We take all of this into account when calculating the value of your damages. Our goal is always to pursue the maximum compensation possible.
Car Accident Compensation
Through a personal injury lawsuit and/or insurance claim, a car accident lawyer in Ventura will demand you receive compensation for your:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
We look for all insurance coverage related to the crash. There may be a relevant insurance policy attached to the vehicle and/or the driver. If the driver was working at the time, the employing business likely has insurance. Also, if the driver was in a rental vehicle, there may be coverage through the rental car company, or the credit card used to rent the vehicle.
Obtaining Compensation After a Ventura Car Accident
To obtain compensation after a crash, you must prove the other driver was at fault. Generally, this means establishing that the other car was negligent. In other words, the other driver was careless when they should have been more careful.
The basic elements of a car accident claim are:
- The other driver owed you a duty of care. All drivers are required to act as a reasonably prudent person would under the same or similar circumstances.
- The other driver failed to uphold that duty by acting carelessly or recklessly.
- The other driver’s negligence or gross negligence caused the crash.
- You suffered compensable injuries in the crash.
Let Harris Personal Injury Lawyers Fight For You
Car accidents always seem to come out of nowhere. You are not emotionally, physically, or financially prepared to have your day ruined and to suffer the consequences of a crash for months. No one can prepare for this risk beyond carrying their own auto insurance. That is why we are here to help.

Instead of trying to do it all after an accident, we want you to focus on recovering, spending time with your family, and returning to normal or finding a new normal.
