What are the chances that you will be involved in a car accident? Actually, they are quite high. About one in ten people is involved in a car accident every year, and the chances are good that sometime in your life you will be either the driver or a passenger in a car that is hit by another driver or involved in a single-car accident. Auto accident lawyers in California represent people who are the victims of injuries sustained in car accidents. These professional attorneys help victims recover the money they need to pay for all types of damage and loss sustained in an auto collision.
There are three basic types of damages incurred in a car crash. First, there is the obvious property damage that is caused to the victim’s car and belongings. The costs of these damages can be quite high; sometimes a "simple" fender-bender ends up costing thousands of dollars to fix, and in some cases the car has to be "totaled," meaning that it is considered no longer driveable and must be replaced.
The second type of damage suffered by victims of auto accidents is the physical injury that is a factor in at least half of all car accidents. Physical injuries include everything from minor cuts and bruises to brain and spinal cord damage and even death. Medical bills can be astronomical given the high cost of health care, and many victims require ongoing physical or occupational therapy to regain the full use of their bodies.
Finally, there is the emotional or mental damage inherent in a car accident. While these types of injuries are not as visible as physical injury, they are nonetheless just as real and devastating. Car crash victims often suffer from depression, ongoing pain, and loss of interest in many previous activities. They may lose their jobs due to their physical disabilities, suffer from mental impairment from brain damage, or discover that relationships with family and friends are stressed beyond reasonable limits. While it is more difficult to put a monetary value on this type of suffering, California auto accident lawyers work with the victims to recover at least a reasonable amount to pay for these problems.
If you are the victim of a car accident, it pays to talk to a professional auto accident attorney immediately. Do not wait; time is limited to file a claim for damages.
