The aftermath of a serious car accident can be devastating for just about anyone. In addition to recovering from significant or even debilitating physical injuries, a victim may also have to try to figure out how to support herself financially, as she may no longer be able to work. Moreover, an accident also takes an emotional toll both on the victim and his family. To add to these issues, California’s legal system can be hard to understand, particularly for those who are immigrants to this country and thus may not be as familiar with the way the law works.
Making matters worse, getting compensation after a car accident will likely mean dealing with insurance companies. Doing so can prove to be difficult, especially if the company is unwilling to pay for all of the expenses and losses to which the victim is entitled. It can be easy to get lost in the large bureaucracy of an insurance company that, ultimately, has the one goal of turning a profit.
Our law office is equipped to help victims of all kinds of car accidents. We have represented clients after pedestrian or bicycle accidents as well as victims of accidents in which the other vehicle involved was a large truck or other commercial vehicle. Many of our clients have been victims of drunk or distracted drivers.
While we will try to negotiate fair compensation as efficiently as possible, sometimes it may be necessary for us to advocate for our personal injury clients at a trial. In some cases, we are also able to help our clients apply for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. No two cases are alike, though, which is why those in the Modesto, San Jose, and Stockton areas may want to consult with a legal professional to better determine their best course of action.
