Do I have an Auto Accident Case?

In order to file a claim, it must be proven that the other driver owed you a duty of care and breached that duty of care. All motorists on California roads have a duty to drive safely and avoid reckless behaviors that would put other people in danger.

They breach this duty of care when they:

  • Drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Drive while distracted.
  • Make illegal turns.
  • Fail to keep their vehicles safe.
  • Break the speed limit; or
  • Engage in other illegal or reckless behaviors.

 

If your accident was caused by a negligent driver, you have the right to pursue compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages you have incurred as a result. Unfortunately, even if it seems obvious that another person is liable for your damages, you still might run into a dispute at some point during the claims process.

Then, there’s also the challenge of dealing with insurance companies and defendants who wish to reduce their liability. Insurance adjusters might try to manipulate you into making a recorded statement that can be used against you. They might offer a low settlement before you know the full extent of your injuries. They might even review your social media profiles for images that can be used to dispute the severity of your injuries. The insurance company will not be on your side, regardless of what the adjuster may claim. You must NEVER speak to the insurance adjuster—and you certainly should not accept a settlement offer—without consulting an experienced car accident attorney.

At Soho Law, we will handle correspondence with the insurance company so they cannot take advantage of you. We will perform a thorough investigation into your case, gather evidence before it becomes unavailable, speak with eyewitnesses, and aggressively represent your interests during settlement negotiations.

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

Unfortunately, no attorney in California can guarantee a specific outcome for your case. It is vital to know that numerous factors can influence whether your claim is successful and the amount of compensation you ultimately recover.

  • The cost of the medical bills you have incurred
  • The cost of any future medical treatment you will need
  • The amount of income you lost due to your injuries
  • Whether your injuries have affected your future earning capacity
  • Whether you required home modifications to accommodate your injury
  • The cost of fixing your vehicle
  • Whether your injury caused scarring, disability, or the loss of a bodily function.
