Experienced Los Angeles Car Accident Attorney
Los Angeles is famously a “city on wheels” with the stereotype that no one walks. We’ve got buses and trains, but, unlike other major cities, the automobile remains the primary way of getting around. And with some of the most congested freeways and roads in the country, Los Angeles and its surrounding cities lay claim to some of the highest rates of automobile accidents anywhere in the United States.
Odds are that the average Southern California resident will experience several car accidents in their lifetime. And when an accident involves injuries and major property damage, there will be hundreds of lawyers vying to represent you. It is important to go with one committed to providing you with the best possible client service while striving to obtain the maximum recovery for your losses. Finding an attorney who is experienced in bringing and winning car accident lawsuits for the full range of losses suffered by victims is of critical importance, and the Law Office of Tal Rubin is committed to doing just that.
What Should I Do After a Car Accident?
The first thing to do after being involved in a car accident is stop and exchange information with the other driver, including VIN numbers, insurance information, and driver’s license numbers. If an injury occurred, call for medical assistance and notify the police immediately to come investigate and write a report.
At this point you should avoid accepting any cash or other settlement offers for your injuries from the other driver or his insurer. Contact an attorney immediately, who can begin reconstructing the accident scene, working with any eyewitnesses, and negotiating potential settlements with other parties. If no adequate settlement can be reached with the other parties, then the case may proceed to trial.
What Recovery Can I Obtain in a Car Accident Lawsuit?
If you are involved in a serious car accident, you may be entitled to recover damages for all of your losses, including:
- Past and future medical costs, including rehabilitation and in-home care
- Loss of time from work due to the accident, including reduced income potential resulting from the accident
- Past and future pain and suffering costs
- Loss of consortium
- Property damage to your vehicle
Your auto and health insurers may of course front certain costs to you, but this does not prevent you from seeking damages from the parties at fault in the accident. Furthermore, the fact that the defendant has no insurance or limited insurance does not prevent you from bringing a case against that defendant, as that party will be liable for the losses you have suffered regardless of their insurance status.
