Itemize Your Car Accident Expenses, Say Glendale Car Accident Lawyers

In general terms, the best Glendale car accident lawyers can offer guidance on what you may be entitled to should you get into a car accident in Glendale, California. If you suffer an injury and/or property damage, you have every right to seek just compensation for your losses and expenses. Unfortunately, car crashes occur all too often in any city, and Glendale has seen its share.

The Grim Statistics

Car accident statistics in 2006 by The California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) revealed that eight people died and 754 were injured in Glendale car crashes. Seven pedestrians were killed and 124 were injured in car collisions. A total of 37 bicyclists and 37 motorcyclists were injured. Drunk drivers caused two fatalities and 60 injuries. In 2007, eight car collisions ended in eight deaths.

Document Your Damages

Experienced Glendale car accident lawyers uniformly agree that if you get into a car accident, you should document all your economic damages. These would be any real dollars-and-cents expenses and costs you actually incurred as a result of the accident, and any you incurred afterward. Actual incurred losses generally include all your medical bills, pay stubs, income tax returns, and receipts for all accident-related expenses, including those paid by a health plan or insurer.

Some Examples of Oft-Forgotten Damages

Car accident victims often forget to include fees spent on services that they are incapable of performing themselves due to their car accident injury. For example, if they have to hire a gardener to perform normal gardening and landscaping maintenance at home, the bill for this service is considered an economic damage. Similarly, say Glendale car collision lawyers, if a homemaker must hire a housecleaning service to take over while they recover, the bill for this is considered an economic damage. And if a soccer mom is injured and can no longer take her children to games and practices, the bill for hiring transportation services would also be an economic damage. These examples illustrate the importance of itemizing any legitimate expense, which if left out of a written record, could mean a smaller settlement.
