Car Accident Before

Traffic accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Therefore, to avoid disadvantages and inconveniences, please carry the necessities presented by THE SANN LAW GROUP in your vehicle.

First, a checklist in case of a car accident. Second, insurance card, vehicle registration. Third, the safety kit. In addition, you must have a driver's license.

In addition, for traffic safety during normal driving, please refrain from drinking and driving, which can cause traffic accidents, or inhaling marijuana (narcotics), which is legally permitted in California.
Also, make sure to wear a seat belt while driving to ensure minimum life and safety even if you get into an accident due to an unexpected situation.

Still, quite a few people think that in the event of a car accident, they will be able to handle everything with the help of their insurance company. But the important thing for customers to know is that insurance adjusters protect the interests of the insurer by spending as little as possible. That's why car accident lawyers fight against insurance companies and represent car accident victims to get the maximum compensation they are entitled to.

That's right. This is because there are no separate attorneys' fees and no fees from the client. Instead, our traffic accident lawyers receive a fee based on the amount of compensation from the insurance company, and if there is no compensation, we do not receive a separate fee. That's why traffic accident lawyers fight fiercely with insurance companies on behalf of their clients.

In short, if you don't win your case with our car accident attorney's office, you won't have to pay a dime for your attorney's fees. On the other hand, if you receive a large reward, you will receive a commission in proportion to it.

We are also prepared to fight for compensation for non-physical injuries suffered by our clients. California law allows plaintiffs to seek compensation for physical pain and economic loss, as well as emotional, mental and psychological suffering. Our car accident attorney's office can help you obtain reasonable compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional damage, distress, heartbreak, distress and post-traumatic stress disorder after a serious car accident.

When the term "Negligence" is used in personal injury law, it refers to the plaintiff's legal principle. Most auto accident claims and other types of personal injury lawsuits are based on this legal theory. A careless person has failed to do the permitted duty of care. It is an obligation on the part of the driver to exercise the same level of caution in the same or similar circumstances. In the context of an automobile accident claim, the duty of care generally refers to the driver's responsibility to obey traffic laws, drive carefully, and prevent automobile accidents.

Proving negligence in a car accident case requires clear and convincing evidence that the driver or other defendant violated his or her duty of care. A breach of duty is a breach of the level of care required by the circumstances. Next, the victim (or the victim's attorney) must prove that the defendant's breach of duty was the proximate or primary cause of the car accident. In other words, the conflict would not have occurred had it not been for the negligence of the accused.

Evidence of negligence is required to establish elements of an auto accident claim in California. Evidence can take the form of police accident reports, photographs and video footage, signed eyewitness statements, auto accident expert testimony, crash reconstructions, medical records, cell phone records, and commercial driver employment records. A lawyer can help you gather all the evidence to prove the defendant's negligence in a car accident case.

How does mutual negligence affect my car accident insurance claim?
Relative (both parties) negligence is usually a defense that the perpetrator of a car accident can use to try to lower the amount of a settlement or judgment. The victim also claims that he was partly responsible for the accident and that the defendant should be relieved of some liability for the damages.
In cases of both negligence in a car accident case, the amount of compensation you receive from the other driver may be reduced if relative negligence applies to you. For example, if your fault is found to be 10%, your recovery award will be reduced by a corresponding percentage.
California is a state that recognizes pure comparative negligence. This means that perpetrators can be held liable for up to 99% of car accidents and receive monetary compensation for the remaining 1%. To maximize your economic recovery, it is important to work with an attorney who can oppose comparative (relative) negligence defenses.

You may be covered if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance (UM/UIM).

A hit-and-run accident refers to an accident in which the perpetrator neglects to fulfill his legal duty of care, such as taking financial responsibility for the accident. In a hit-and-run case, you may not know how to proceed with a claim because you do not know the identity of the perpetrator. California's negligent auto insurance laws do not apply when the identity of the at-fault party is unknown. Luckily, your auto insurance company can provide a solution for you.

One of the first steps you should take after a hit and run accident is to call the police. Police can investigate crash sites and pursue negligent drivers. In this case, as in other car accident cases, you can proceed with a collision claim by filing a claim with the negligent driver's insurance company. However, if the police cannot identify the driver, they will instead file a claim for monetary compensation through the car insurance company. Call your insurance agent to report the accident as soon as possible. Your agent will tell you if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance (UM/UIM) that can cover damages.

In California, it is not mandatory to have insurance for uninsured/underinsured motorists. However, if you wish to decline this coverage, you must manually opt out when purchasing the policy. If you have this insurance, your insurance company will pay for property damage repairs and medical expenses. Comprehensive and crash insurance can also pay for hit-and-run accident damages. Our LA auto accident attorneys can help you negotiate with your insurance company for fair and reasonable recovery compensation after a serious hit-and-run auto accident.

Another way to achieve financial recovery after a hit-and-run car accident is to hold someone other than the driver liable for the damages. A lawyer can tell you whether another party contributed to your accident, such as the hired driver's company, the city of LA in the case of dangerous roads, or the vehicle manufacturer in the case of a defective auto part. Contact our auto accident attorney's office today for a free consultation.

If you can claim damages, we can help you understand the type and amount you need to put in your initial demand letter against the abuser. Every car accident case is unique and the damage and loss suffered by survivors is different. Finding the right amount can increase your odds of securing a successful insurance settlement.

THE SANN LAW GROUP can review your case and calculate an appropriate amount to charge. They will then fight to get this amount or more from the insurance company or other defendants in LA County.

● Existing Medical Debt
● Future Hospital and Medical Expenses
● Temporary or Permanent Disability Accommodations
● Past and Future Wage Losses
● Vehicle Repair or Replacement
● Physical Pain and Suffering
● Misery
● Mental Anguish

If you suffered fatal injuries or a loved one died in a car accident in Los Angeles, your case may be eligible for substantial compensation. Don't try to convince your insurance company to settle for less than the actual potential value of your case. Hire our auto accident attorneys to help you fight for the financial compensation you need to move forward with comfort and confidence.

That's right. This is because there are no separate attorneys' fees and no fees from the client. Instead, our traffic accident lawyers receive a fee based on the amount of compensation from the insurance company, and if there is no compensation, we do not receive a separate fee. That's why traffic accident lawyers fight fiercely with insurance companies on behalf of their clients.
