Answers To Common Questions About California Car Accidents

You may be filled with questions after your Anaheim car accident. Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions asked by other accident victims.

What should I do after a car accident in Southern California?

There are numerous important steps you should take following a car accident. They include:

  • Check on everyone involved in the crash (including yourself) to determine if emergency medical help is needed. If so, call 911.
  • Move out of the road and to a safe location.
  • Call the police if you haven’t already called 911 for ambulance services.
  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver.
  • Take pictures and videos of the car accident scene to document vehicle damage, license plates and evidence like tire marks and impact angles.
  • Avoid discussing fault with the other driver. You don’t know the facts yet and do not want to say anything that might limit your legal options later on.

Once you’ve left the accident scene, contact your insurer to report the crash. Again, avoid discussing fault or giving any official statements at this time. Then, contact an experienced Anaheim car accident attorney to discuss your legal options.

What are the most common types of car accidents in California?

The most common crash types include head-on collisions and rear-end crashes. This is the case nationwide. In California, the most common causes of car accidents include distracted driving (usually related to cellphones), drunk driving and speeding/aggressive driving. If you’ve been hit by an intoxicated driver, you should contact an Anaheim drunk driving accident lawyer.

How long do I have to make a claim after a California car accident?

The statute of limitations for a car accident claim is two years from the date of the crash. This is how much time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. This may seem like plenty of time, but it is important to discuss your case with an auto accident attorney as soon as reasonably possible to preserve evidence and witness memories.

How do you defend my interests against a distracted driver or drunk driver?

Our attorneys can demand to examine the contents of a negligent driver’s mobile phone, to detect if it was being used at the moment of your crash. We carefully inspect police reports about any role that alcohol may have played in the accident that seriously injured you or killed a loved one. It’s important to work with an experienced Anaheim drunk driving accident attorney so you can achieve the desired outcome in your case.

Why would I want a lawyer if I know I’m not at fault in my car accident?

California is a fault state when it comes to car accidents. This means that the costs of the crash should be paid by the insurance company for the at-fault driver. You will need to prove that the other driver was at fault for the crash, which is best achieved with the help of an experienced car accident lawyer in Anaheim.

You’ll also want to hire a reputable car accident law firm to maximize your compensation. Insurance companies want to resolve your accident claim as quickly and cheaply as possible. They will likely make a lowball settlement offer, or they may try to reduce your compensation by claiming that you were partially at fault for the crash. Your lawyer will not be intimidated or fooled by these tactics and will fight for the full value of your claim.

What damages can I claim after a California car accident?

Your available compensation will depend on the details of your accident. However, you may be entitled to damages (compensation) for:

  • Medical bills (present and future)
  • Lost wages from time spent unable to work
  • Vehicle damage and property loss
  • Permanent disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Although rare, punitive damages are sometimes awarded in cases where the defendant was not only negligent, but also displayed “oppression, fraud, or malice.” After examining the available evidence in your case, your accident attorney will be able to give you a clearer estimate of the available damages and the financial value of the claim.

How do you work with insurance companies after my Anaheim car crash?

No question, our lawyers are willing to go to court. We don’t litigate frivolously. We litigate with a purpose. That goal is to level the playing field for you, to even the score after a wrong done to you on a California surface street or highway, as a driver, bicyclist or pedestrian. And we don’t rest until we’ve won.
