While Sacramento and surrounding areas are desirable and beautiful places to live, car accidents cause serious injury, death and property damage each year. Thankfully, cars are increasingly safer and more efficient with new technologies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the number of car accidents and injuries are decreasing as well.
HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT?
For those injured in an auto accident in Sacramento many times, it is a life-changing event and can cause lasting damage that is not only physical but emotional and financial.
Medical bills can stack up quickly. Repairing a vehicle to the condition it was before the accident is not always possible. Loss of work is not uncommon due to physical pain and therapy needed to recover medically.
Often, insurance companies seek to limit their exposure to financial liability of auto accidents. When you’re injured, financially stressed, you’re vehicle is damaged or undriveable and you’re unable to work, what do you do after the insurance company denies the claim?

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I HAVE A LAWYER WORKING ON MY CASE?
Having an independent investigation of the car accident is vital. Witnesses should be questioned, photos of the damage documented for both vehicles, and all circumstances and facts will be reviewed to determine fault. When injuries are due to the unreasonable and careless actions of another we would likely recommend a negligence action.
Determining fault is the main element in an auto accident claim. All drivers have a duty to operate a vehicle with reasonable care. If it can be shown that the other driver breached their duty of reasonable care which also resulted in the damages then this may give rise to a successful negligence claim.
