FAQ – Lancaster & Palmdale Car Accidents
How can I prove that the other driver caused my car accident?
When taking on a Palmdale or Lancaster car accident claim, our attorneys will employ different methods to help prove that the other driver caused the accident. This may require work with accident reconstruction professionals as well as qualified individuals in other fields, such as private investigation, to thoroughly evaluate the accident and determine how to prove that the other driver caused the accident.
What types of damages can I recover money for?
In a car accident claim in Lancaster or Palmdale, there are different types of damages you may be able to seek financial compensation for, including: medical expenses, future medical care, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, damage to your vehicle, any out of pocket expenses related to the accident, and lost wages. An attorney can evaluate your particular case to determine what damages you may be entitled to.
Do I need to file an insurance claim?
Reporting your car accident to your auto insurance company will be important. Failing to report an accident may actually hinder your opportunity to recover money that your policy would provide for an incident of this kind.
Can an attorney help if the other driver didn’t have insurance?
At times, we come across a case where a driver has become involved in an auto accident with a motorist who did not have insurance. In these cases, we will look to our client’s own insurance policy or may seek other sources of financial compensation from the responsible motorist.
Will my car accident case need to go to court?
Most Palmdale and Lancaster car accident claims are resolved outside of the courtroom. Most often, the insurance company of the responsible driver and the victim will come to an agreed upon settlement for medical bills and other damages related to the accident. However, in some situations your case may need to go to court.
How do I know if I need a car accident lawyer?
Whether you need a lawyer for your particular case may vary, but with proper legal counsel your chances of recovering the full financial compensation you deserve are much greater. This is particularly relevant in cases involving serious injuries, and as such we recommend that you talk to an attorney at our offices about your specific case and your legal options.
