Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in California. There are over six million car accidents in the U.S. a year, killing over 40,000 people, and Los Angeles is ranked the number one city in California where car accidents occur. Car accidents also account for three million injuries -- two million of which are permanent, including brain injury, decapitation, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, coma, and wrongful death.

A car accident can devastate your health, earning potential and future. And with car accidents and medical costs on the rise, it's more important than ever to seek out an effective, aggressive Los Angeles car accident lawyer to handle your accident claim -- as fast as you can. You also need to make sure you choose someone you trust and feel good about.

Steps to Take after a Car Accident

There are several steps that you would be well advised to take in the aftermath of a car accident in order to protect your legal rights. Get immediate medical attention. If you cannot move after the accident, wait until emergency personnel arrive. Some accident injuries may not be apparent right away. However, it is best to see your medical care provider to ensure that you have not been injured.

Make sure that you file a police report. This will help document the incident and at a later point help determine fault.Gather as much information as possible from the accident scene. If you are able, you should take photos of the accident scene including the position of the vehicles, license plates and injuries sustained in the crash. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties.

Do not talk to insurance companies' representatives without first consulting a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies are usually keen to diminish the value of your case or make it go away. What you tell them can and probably will be used against you.

Proving Fault and Liability

This can be a major challenge in an automobile accident even in cases where the facts may seem "obvious." A number of car accidents happen as the result of a driver's negligence, which means that the motorist was operating the automobile in a reckless or unsafe manner. Drivers are required under the law to use "reasonable care" while operating a vehicle. Examples of negligent driving include driving while impaired distracted or fatigued; violating the rules of the road such as running a red light or a stop sign; and driving over the speed limit.

In a car accident case, however, the burden of proving negligence rests on the plaintiffs. Auto accident lawyers have many ways of proving liability. They may rely on police reports, eyewitnesses, evidence gathered from the vehicle, paramedics' and doctors' reports and footage from red light cameras or surveillance cameras that monitor streets and intersections.

Plaintiffs' lawyers may also call on expert witnesses who can help judges and juries better understand the facts of the case. It is very important in all car accident cases to preserve the vehicle so it can be examined by an expert for evidence. In most auto accident cases, the vehicle is the most important piece of evidence. Destroying or repairing the vehicle prematurely may prove to be a costly mistake.

Damages inLos Angeles Car Accident Cases

Injured victims of LA car accidents can seek compensation for damages including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Hospitalization and surgeries
  • Rehabilitation such as physical and occupational therapy
  • Permanent injuries
  • Disabilities
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

Before You Do Anything Else, Read This...

Before you speak to an insurance adjuster or a LA car accident attorney, get the information you need to be able to deal effectively with the insurance company's trained representative. But remember that the insurance adjuster works for the insurance company, and his job assignment is to settle your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Do not fall into the trap of thinking that the adjuster is helping you. Be careful. The adjuster may just be setting you up, sucking information out of you that you don't need to give and having you sign release forms that allow the insurance company to get every employment, medical, school and military record in your entire life. They have no right to most of those records, but they will certainly collect them and use them to their benefit if you let them.

The best car accident attorney will provide you a free consultation, answer your questions, point out your rights and options, analyze your circumstances and advise you about what to do and whether you even need a lawyer.

But keep in mind, there is a two-year statute of limitations in most California personal injury cases. However there are car accident cases that have a 180-day claims filing requirement. When that expires, you lose your right to collect your medical expenses and your other damages.
