California Car Accident Litigation
The dedicated accident attorneys at the Nagelberg Bernard Law Group have more than 30 years of experience representing victims of negligence who have suffered injuries, financial and personal losses, and who are facing future related expenses.
Anyone who has been involved directly or indirectly in an auto accident knows how it affects the lives of the victims and their families. More than 34,000 U.S. residents died last year in motor vehicles crashes, and millions of people were injured.
If you are injured in a car crash, your first concern is to get immediate care for your physical and emotional needs. Auto accidents can, however, cause loss of income, impaired physical ability, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment as well as many other serious problems.
Determining who is at fault and how much your case can be worth requires in-depth understanding of the law. Contact an attorney who specializes in this area of the law as soon as possible. Remember that once you accept a financial settlement from an insurance agency, you may have no future recourse to gain more compensation.
Do not hesitate when considering to contact a lawyer. There are time limits regarding to how quickly you must file a claim, so make sure that you are prepared.
Whenever you file a claim, it is important to determine who is legally responsibility (who has liability) and how much you are entitled to receive. Determining which sources can be used to collect damages, such as insurance or individual assets, may be complicated. An attorney can help determine liability, evaluate and gather evidence to prove damages, and collect the judgment or settlement.
Liability may stem from numerous sources. Unsafe roads due to inadequate warnings or poor design could affect who is responsible for an accident. Unfortunately, many people do not realize the importance of preserving evidence, and they wait until it is too late to make a claim or until their case becomes much more difficult to prove.
