Car accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases experienced by people in the United States. On average, two million American drivers experience a permanent injury from a vehicle-related accident every year. In California alone, more than 200,000 people experience injuries related to traffic collisions. The victims of these collisions often incur damages from medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and vehicle repair bills.
These collisions often occur because one or another driver made a mistake which the law recognizes as “negligence.” Based upon this legal theory, the at-fault driver is responsible for all damages caused by their mistake. This includes paying for the other driver’s medical bills, lost earnings, physical pain and mental suffering, and repair bills for the vehicle.
While this sounds straightforward, getting the compensation you deserve often involves negotiating and proving your case to an insurance company that wants to pay as little as possible to resolve the case. This why you need an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you in these matters.
