Car Accident Lawyers Santa Rosa
As one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States, automobile accidents dismantle the lives of those involved.
Those who have experienced a motor vehicle accident first hand often find themselves dismayed by how expensive, tedious, and frustrating it can be to get their lives back in order. Unforeseen injuries, vehicle repairs, medical appointments, and lost income are some of the many struggles car accident victims face. Adding insult to injury, insurance companies may deny credible accident claims or attempt to pressure victims into accepting less-than-adequate settlements during their time of need.
The law requires that negligent drivers and insurance companies fairly compensate the victims of such accidents for any harm they sustain. Having represented countless auto accident clients in Santa Rosa and throughout Sonoma County, our experienced team of personal injury attorneys are committed to achieving fair and full compensation for accident victims with a long history of success.
What a Car Accident Attorney Can Do
Assist with Accident Investigation
It is not always clear which party is at fault following an accident, evidence must be collected as proof. The level of fault or negligence has a great impact on settlement outcomes and unless negligence is proven, you may not receive any compensation at all. Physical evidence including police reports, photos, videos, and witness statements should be collected to support your case.
Filing a Claim
Filing your claim can be complex and at times quite confusing. You may not be aware of how or which party to file a claim against. Was the accident caused by another driver? Could the accident have been caused by a defective auto part? A lawyer who specializes in car accidents can help you file your claim against the correct party and do so promptly.
Proving Damages & Injury
If you suffer an injury or heavy losses in an accident, it is easy to assume the insurance company processing your claim will acknowledge this and you will be compensated. Regrettably, this is seldom the case and you will be required to prove the full extent of any losses to recover compensation.
Insurance companies are known to offer claimants far less than they are entitled, often in the hopes they can save themselves money. If a settlement offer does not cover the full amount of the damages you have experienced, a car accident attorney can vigorously negotiate an adequate settlement amount.
