Have you been involved in a Sacramento car crash?
If so, you are not alone. Many people are involved in accidents every day. In fact, in any given five-year period, twenty-five percent of drivers will be involved in a traffic accident. The unfortunate reality is that many of these accidents will result in injuries, such as:
- Neck and back injuries
- Head trauma
- Broken and crushed bones
These injuries can be severe and even cause death, oftentimes creating lifelong complications.
What an Attorney Can Do for You
Sacramento car accident victims often are unsure what to do after an accident. They frequently try to take on an insurance company by themselves. Perhaps they think all they need to do is to simply call the insurance company, and that’s it. This is not true. Unfortunately, insurance companies often take advantage of victims and do not pay full compensation for an accident.
Handling a settlement can be confusing, tiring, and frustrating. If you are injured, the added stress of trying to go through a lawsuit on your own can complicate your injuries. Some steps an experienced car accident attorney in Sacramento can accomplish for you include:
- Communicating with insurance adjusters
- Gathering and organizing evidence
- Answering legal questions
- Calling accident witnesses and getting statements
- Contacting expert witnesses
- Receiving a higher payout
For what will I receive compensation?
Perhaps you think insurance claims only pay out funds for vehicle damage and some medical expenses. You may be surprised to learn there are many things for which you can be compensated. Some expenses may be harder to get paid for than others, but the fact remains they are things for which you can be compensated. An experienced attorney will know that you can get and fight for compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Past and future wage loss
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Any other loss you incurred due to the accident
