Life after a Serious California Car Accident

Even a minor California car accident can have a huge impact on your life.  A serious accident can change everything.  Injuries or deaths are common in serious car accidents, and this devastation has long-reaching consequences for victims and families.

If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, your earning potential may have changed significantly.  You may be faced with tremendous medical bills, and you may have injuries from which you will never fully recover.  

Worst of all, you may have lost a loved one to a serious car accident.  This loss can never be repaired, and may be compounded by the fact that the victim was the breadwinner in your family, which can impact your whole family’s future.  Even if the victim was not your sole means of support, nothing can replace the loss of a family member.

While money will not solve these issues or make the hurt go away, it is only right that if someone has injured you or caused the death of a loved one that the person should make restitution to you and your family.  A personal injury lawyer has one mission–to get you the compensation to which you are entitled following a serious car accident.

In California, the law regarding personal injury allows you to file suit against the at-fault driver and his or her insurance company, as well as any other entities which may be liable in the accident.  It is often the case that multiple people or organizations can be held liable in a single accident.  A personal injury attorney can obtain this information from the accident report and make a professional determination as to how to handle your suit.

California has a statute of limitations, or a time limit in which you must file your personal injury lawsuit in order to have it heard in court.  According to the California Code of Civil Procedure, Section 335.1, you have two years from the date of the injury, in most cases, to file a personal injury suit.  The statute of limitations may be affected by many factors, however.  It is quite possible for the statute of limitations to be much shorter than two years, so it is best to talk to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

A large settlement will not ease your grief and pain or bring your loved one back.  However, obtaining justice from those who have injured you will help you to get your life back to normal in the shortest time possible.

Even a minor California car accident
can have a huge impact on your life.  A serious accident can change
everything.  Injuries or deaths are common in serious car accidents, and
this devastation has long-reaching consequences for victims and
families.

If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, your earning
potential may have changed significantly.  You may be faced with
tremendous medical bills, and you may have injuries from which you will
never fully
