Understanding Damages After an Accident
Every accident is unique, and various factors influence the benefits you are entitled to receive. In California accident cases, benefits encompass both economic and noneconomic damages. We are committed to helping you recover all the benefits you deserve, whether they pertain to economic losses or intangible suffering.
Economic damages encompass medical bills incurred as a result of the accident, including expenses related to rehabilitation, medical treatments, hospital stays, doctor’s visits, transportation to and from medical facilities, as well as many others.
Additionally, if your ability to work has been compromised, we can assist you in recovering lost wages. In cases where you are unable to work in the future due to the accident, we will strive to secure compensation equivalent to the wages you would have earned.
Noneconomic damages encompass intangible losses such as pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment, and loss of consortium. These non-monetary losses can take a significant toll on your quality of life, and we will work diligently to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your suffering.
If you do not have a medical care provider, we can connect you with trusted medical professionals who operate on a contingency basis. This means that you can receive the necessary medical care without incurring immediate financial burdens.
Identifying Liable Parties
Determining liability in an accident is a complex process that requires thorough investigation. Multiple parties may be responsible for the accident and the subsequent injuries. While the primary liable party might be apparent, other contributing factors can enhance the complexity of the case.
For example, in car accident cases, the other driver may be at fault due to reckless or negligent driving. However, poorly maintained roads or defects in your vehicle could cause the accident. In such instances, the governing body responsible for road maintenance or the manufacturer of the defective vehicle component may also share liability.
This is not limited to car accidents. In truck accidents, the driver may be liable, but the trucking company, the individuals responsible for loading the truck, or the mechanic who negligently maintained the vehicle might also be held accountable.
Product defect cases involve manufacturers, distributors, and other parties, while construction site accidents can implicate tool manufacturers and construction companies.
Belal Hamideh is dedicated to identifying all parties responsible for your accident. By doing so, we can pursue maximum compensation from every liable entity, ensuring that you receive the financial support you need to recover and move forward.
Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident
If you find yourself in an accident, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect your well-being and your legal rights. Following these steps can significantly impact the outcome of your case:
- Ensure Your Safety: Move to a safe location, away from any immediate danger.
- Assess Injuries: Check your injuries as well as others involved in the accident, including passengers, drivers, pedestrians etc.
- Exchange Information: If the accident involves another party, exchange contact and insurance information in a courteous manner. Avoid admitting fault or making statements that could be interpreted as an admission of liability.
- Document the Scene: If it is safe to do so, take photographs of the accident scene, including vehicles, environmental damage, injuries sustained by you and others, and any relevant details.
- Preserve Evidence: In product defect cases, retain the defective product and document your injuries. Preserving evidence is essential to building a strong case.
- Contact Authorities: Even in seemingly minor accidents, contact the appropriate authorities, such as the police, to report the incident. A police report can provide valuable support for your case.
- Seek Medical Attention: Even if you believe your injuries are minor, seek professional medical evaluation as soon as possible. Some injuries may not manifest immediately, and prompt medical attention can prevent complications.
- Notify Your Insurance Company: Inform your insurance company about the accident, providing accurate and truthful details.
- Contact an Attorney: Once you have taken these steps, reach out to our experienced team for legal assistance. We can conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your case and guide you through the necessary legal processes.
Understanding Comparative Negligence in California
In this state, the concept of comparative negligence allows individuals to seek compensation even if they share partial responsibility for the accident. Under this legal principle, your recovery is proportionate to your level of fault. For example, if you are found to be 40% at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by 40%.
Understanding your level of liability is crucial in evaluating the strength of your case. Consulting with an experienced attorney can provide you with a clear understanding of your situation. Our team can assess the circumstances of your accident and help you navigate the complexities of comparative negligence.
Act Promptly to Protect Your Rights
Time is of the essence in accident cases. In California, the statute of limitations for pursuing legal action after an accident is typically two years. However, this timeframe can vary based on the specifics of your case. It is essential to consult with an attorney promptly to ensure that you do not miss critical deadlines.
Additionally, it is important to note that while you may be considering your options, the opposing party is likely already working diligently to minimize your compensation. Insurance companies and other entities involved in the incident may employ tactics aimed at reducing your claim. By seeking legal representation promptly, you level the playing field and empower yourself to pursue a fair resolution.
