How Can Los Angeles Auto Accident Lawyers Help With My Case?

The best car accident attorneys in Los Angeles tend to veterans who have handled many types of injury cases from top to bottom. Every car accident is novel, calling for help from a finely tuned legal negotiator and strategist. If you were seriously injured or a person you love has died from a motoring crash, your financial situation may be dicey. Being paid your fair share means facing brutal settlement talks with a hapless insurance adjuster. An experienced car accident attorney can navigate the barriers when a less trained firm may be tempted to accept the first offer to settle for less. A non-attorney survivor who accepts an amount less than a motor vehicle accident claim's true value must still pay back past due bills and fees out of their pocket.

Whether your crash was a major or minor impact accident, our trustworthy legal professionals are prepared to help make positive changes in your life.

  • Requirements and Fault. California is an at-fault state. Negligence laws require the survivor to prove the other driver must pay fair victim's fair compensation. The state rules of pure comparative negligence will reduce the victims' recovery by their partial percentage of fault. Even if the survivor caused 98% of the vehicle crash, they could collect 2% of the award. An attorney from our firm can help you stave off comparative negligence defenses.
  • General rules of the road. All drivers must be licensed, minimally insured, operate a registered vehicle, and obey all posted speed limits. During darkness or bad weather, you must drive safely for the conditions present. You must yield to oncoming vehicles because the law preempts people from disrupting the traffic's flow. Drivers must not hit the rear end of vehicles by following too closely, and sudden stops by the lead vehicle require vehicles in the rear to maintain a safer cushion of space. Drivers must stay away from handheld devices or distractions while behind the wheel. 
  • Seatbelt defense. Not wearing your safety belt during a road accident can wipe out your pain and suffering damages. All passengers 16 years of age must wear a safety belt.
  • Auto Accident Reporting Rules. After colliding, drivers must stop, render aid, and provide papers when road conditions are safe.
  • Reports To DMV must be filed in cases of death, injury, or damage worth over $750 within 10 days according to Vehicle Code Section 16000.
  • Reports To Law Enforcement. California Vehicle Code Section 20008 requires vehicle operators in accidents or their champion to make a written police report about the crash to the Highway Patrol or local precinct. Any injury or death from a crash must be reported within 24 hours of the crash.
  • Statute of limitations deadline time requires survivors to sue someone within two years from the car crash date, but exceptions may apply to shorten or lengthen this time. Car wreck survivors have three years to file a property damage lawsuit, but suing the government shortens the period. (usually 6 months).

Important State of California Auto Insurance Laws

California's insurance law system is tort-based, meaning if you cause a road accident and the insurer refuses liability on your behalf, a lawsuit can be lodged against you. If you did not buy enough insurance protection, you must pay the amounts owed. Those car drivers who caused your car accident injuries must be held legally liable to help pay for their portion of the fault.

Mandatory law requires that vehicle operators have $15,000 for an injury or death to one person, $30,000 for injury or death to more than one victim, and $5,000 to cover property damage. This is called "minimum" insurance. A company like Uber, Lyft, or FedEx must cover hired drivers by buying a higher commercial insurance policy.

In this case, you can proceed with your crash claim like any other auto injury case, filing a claim for damages with the at-fault person's insurance provider in writing. Injured victims may be able to file lawsuits instead of insurance claims, but some first-party insurance claims require binding arbitration.

  • Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage. The insurance code law requires the insurance company to present customers the option to buy or reject/waive uninsured motorist ("UM") bodily injury and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage at the time of purchase. When the at-fault driver fails to carry insurance, your UM coverage kicks in. UIM motorist coverage helps cover the difference between the driver's smaller policy and the victim's actual damages. Another smart option is Underinsured Motorist Property Damage (UMPD). UMPD helps pay for your items when a person with low coverage strikes your car.
  • When an unidentified driver flees the crash scene illegally, UM, UIM, UMPD can be tendered as our firm's Los Angeles auto accident attorney helps you argue with your insurance provider.
  • *Property Damage coverage means you are able to pay another person's property damages up to your policy limits. *Your vehicle damage won't be covered.
  • Purchasing Other Forms of Car Insurance. California state insurance laws represent a floor when it comes to buying insurance. You can amend your policy to secure medical payments coverage (Med-Pay), liability insurance, comprehensive coverage (Comp), and to add theft protection. UMPD or collision insurance may help you pay for dents, etc. A Los Angeles auto accident attorney from our firm can help negotiate a fair and reasonable victim's recovery after serious injuries from a car accident.
  • Third-Party Payment Options. When the government created a dangerous condition like a dangerous roadway, a trained car accident lawyer can tell you whether the City of Los Angeles is liable for a roadway hazard.  Or if a car parts manufacturer's faulty or recalled product was the problem, you may have grounds to seek money from third parties. Our Los Angeles car accident attorney reviews the evidence, and we'll explain what financial outlets can provide payments.
  • Special Problem: Not having basic auto insurance can prevent you from securing pain and suffering damage payments.

5 Smart Steps After A Car Los Angeles Accident

  • If you or someone was injured in a car accident, call the LAPD or 9-1-1.
  • If the at-fault-party fled the scene, you must wait for emergency services.
  • You must try to recall the license plates, vehicle description, and the identifying traits of the at-fault driver for the police. The police can investigate the crash scene and try and hunt down the at-fault driver.
  • Normal Case. In case the parties complied with the law, the next step would be filing a claim with the insurer for the defendant.
  • Hit and Run Case. If the police fail to identify the at-fault driver, having bought the right insurance gets you paid within your policy limits. Your policy will contain a best efforts provision forcing you to reach out when you are stable, etc. One of the best steps is speaking with an auto accident attorney in Los Angeles County who is well versed in contracts, torts, and civil remedies. Together, we can phone your insurer to report your car accident right away and press your insurance agent to accept the risk of the accident. We would seek "first-party," "additional" payments covering your hit and run accident damages.
