AUTO ACCIDENTS

"We are dedicated to holding the responsible parties accountable for their actions and making sure you get the money you are entitled to."

Any car accident lawyer will tell you California is one of the most dangerous states in the country if you are traveling by car. And California traffic is horrendous! When you are in an accident do not speak to the insurance company without talking to a lawyer first.

The insurance company is not on your side and is not going to take care of you.  The process is complicated and full of pit falls. When you contact our firm we will educate you on the process and give you all of your options.

 

Auto Accident Frequently Asked Questions
What Do California’s Liability Laws Say About Receiving Compensation?

When they receive their license, California drivers agree to exercise reasonable care any time they get behind the wheel. This means avoiding violations of the California Vehicle Code, and not putting others at risk. As a part of this agreement, drivers may be legally and financially responsible if they fail to exercise reasonable care and cause an auto accident.

California is a “fault state” when it comes to car accident liability. This means that the party responsible for causing the accident is responsible for paying financial damages. In most cases, the liable party for an accident is another driver. According to NHTSA, human error causes almost 95 percent of crashes. Vehicle-related failures or other factors that drivers cannot prevent caused only about two percent of crashes.

So after an accident, victims typically have a few options to recover compensation which we encourage them to discuss with our automobile accident lawyers after the California police department has written up a report. An automobile accident lawyer can help with:

  • Making a claim through the liable driver’s insurance policy
  • Filing a personal injury claim in court against the liable driver
  • Filing a claim under your insurance policy, depending on your coverage
What Am I Entitled to Recover After A Car Accident?

If you suffered injuries in a car accident anywhere in California and another driver was at fault, you may be able to recover compensation for a number of damages. These include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage, including replacing your vehicle
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
Why Should I Talk To An Auto Accident Lawyer After A California Car Accident?

According to the Insurance Research Counsel (IRC), victims of car accidents who have legal representation get a settlement that is 3.5 times larger on average than those who do not. Hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you helps ensure you get all the compensation that is available to you so you do not leave any on the table.

Temecula car accident lawyers at Sargent will do more than represent you during settlement negotiations or in court. They will gather the evidence necessary to prove the other driver is at fault while also verifying the extent of your injuries and calculating a fair value for the damages you suffered. In many cases, we help our clients negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company without having to go court.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

"Motorcycle accident attorney Ryan Sargent understands the laws regarding motorcycle accidents and takes pride in fighting for injured motorcycle riders."

In the city, motorcycles offer a practical way to get around, and outside of the city, they are a great way to enjoy the great outdoors. Southern California has the weather and scenic drives that make riding a motorcycle one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Unfortunately, though, accidents can and do happen – in many cases because drivers fail to see riders or respect their right to the road. If you or a family member suffered injuries in an accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

Motorcycle Accident Frequently Asked Questions
What type of damages can I recover after a motorcycle accident?

If another driver was at fault in the accident that caused your injuries, you may be entitled to receive compensation for a number of damages, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Damage to your motorcycle and other property
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Temecula motorcycle accident attorney Ryan Sargent can identify all possible damages in your case, and ensure you have the proof necessary to present them to the insurance company and in court.

How does liability work in California?

California is a fault state, meaning that the at-fault party is responsible for paying for damages caused in a crash. Often, the driver’s auto liability insurance policy covers the damages.

Under California law, there are a number of ways that victims can recover compensation from the liable parties after a motorcycle accident. Victims can:

  • Seek compensation from the liable party’s insurance company
  • File suit against the liable party
  • File an insurance claim under their own policy (depending on their coverage)

It is important to note that in some cases more than one person shares the responsibility in causing a collision. When this occurs, the compensation received from each of the liable parties correlates to the amount of fault assigned to them by the court. This is called comparative fault or comparative negligence. If you are partially at fault, your compensation will be reduced accordingly.

Once you file a personal injury suit, you will be required to prove that the accident was the fault of the other driver or drivers, and you were not at fault. Being able to prove your actions did not contribute to the crash is key in getting the maximum compensation possible. Depending on the facts of your accident, this may require an extensive investigation and aggressive advocacy from an attorney.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions
Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

People who hire a lawyer get 3.5X more money for their auto accident claim, according to a study by the Insurance Research Counsel (IRC).

Insurance companies don’t want you to hire a lawyer because they want to pay out as little as possible. When you hire a personal injury lawyer you get these benefits.

Are you a no win no fee law firm?

The majority of personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that if they take your case, they will not require payment unless they are able to get compensation for you. Then, their fee will come out of that compensation.

The Sargent Law Firm will provide a free consultation, and will charge a contingency fee, only if you receive a settlement or judgment in your favor.

How much is my case worth?

If you have been injured as a result of someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive money for your damages. The law provides that you may be able to recover money for physical injuries, medical expenses (past and future), pain and suffering, mental and emotional distress, inconvenience, loss of income, loss of earning capacity, property damage, and other losses. You also may be able to recover punitive damages as well. Most people assume that the insurance companies will pay you 3 times your medical expenses for your pain and suffering. This is not true. The insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim. This is why you may need a personal injury attorney to help identify what type of damages you are entitled to and to fight to get them. Most plaintiff’s who were injured in an auto accident and hire a personal injury lawyer will recover 3 times more money than they would have without a lawyer.

Insurance companies know if you do not have a lawyer they have a better chance of settling your case for less than what it is worth. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers look at all of the facts to determine what the value of your case is. Every case is different and needs to be individually evaluated to determine what the case is worth. If you would like to speak to a personal injury attorney about how much your case is worth feel free to contact us. We will talk to you about what your damages are and how much you may be entitled to recover free of charge and with no obligations.

Can I get medical treatment for my injuries if I don't have health insurance?

If we take on your case and you need medical treatment, but do not have health insurance, we can help you obtain treatment. Our California accident attorneys know a network of medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and many specialists that will treat you even if you don’t have health insurance. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers can help you find medical providers that will delay payment of their medical bills until your case is resolved.
