Negligence in car accidents in Los Angeles
To file a successful claim for a car accident, you must prove the negligence of the other party. One of the most crucial and complicated factors is precisely the determination of guilt. The person responsible for the accident must pay the victims the damages caused.
The most relevant elements that will be valued in the demonstration of the defendant’s negligence are the following:
The responsible driver had the duty to drive the vehicle safely;
However, the responsible driver violated that duty;
Reckless and illegal actions of the negligent driver caused the accident.
The accident was the direct cause of the claimant’s injuries and financial losses.
Sometimes accidents happen as a result of lack of maintenance, design failures or road damage; defective signage or broken traffic lights, whose responsibility is that of a government entity. Also, the defective parts of a vehicle (tires, brakes, etc.) can generate responsibility of the manufacturing companies or distributors by defect of product.
In all these cases it’s possible to file a claim for damages against the government agency, the city, the county or the responsible company. This process begins with the presentation of a claim notice to the government agency or the product manufacturing company.
The California Statute of Limitations establishes a period of 6 months, from the date of the injuries, to file a claim or lawsuit against the government and two years against individuals or companies responsible for personal injuries. An expert personal injury lawyer will help you facilitate the claim filing process and negotiate with the third party’s insurance company.
Additionally, in states such as California, Florida, Arizona and New York that are governed by the rule of “pure comparative negligence“, the defendant’s defense attorney will try to dilute as much as possible the fault of their client and instead try to distribute the fault of the accident with the victim.
If it is concluded that the injured driver had some percentage of fault in the accident, the payment of compensation for the injuries and property damage will be made in accordance with that percentage. So having an experienced and capable lawyer with enough skill to handle these types of cases is always a good idea.
Lluis Law’s lawyers offer to the clients all their negotiating skills and extensive knowledge of the law so that you can obtain the best agreement and the maximum possible compensation. Our car accident attorneys will seek to ensure that medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and any other future medical expenses are guaranteed in the settlement.
If the insurance company does not cooperate and tries to complicate the payment process, we take your case to litigation in a California court and we will do our best to see that justice is done and you get the compensation you deserve. We have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our satisfied customers throughout our successful professional career.
