Car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims in the country. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash, our car crash lawyers have put together the following information to help you understand your next moves.


Be Safe. Be Cautious.

The chances of you or someone you know being injured in a car collision is extremely high. Statistics show that if you are involved in an accident, it is very likely you will be injured. There are several ways you can help protect yourself. 


Follow California Laws

First, if you’re ever in a car crash in California, follow these steps to ensure your safety, both physically and legally. Second, always make sure your vehicle is properly insured. It is estimated that 25% of drivers on the road are uninsured or don’t have adequate insurance. Having your car properly insured is not only the law in California, it helps protect you and your family.

Injured in an Auto Accident?

Injuries from car accidents can vary in severity, from traumatic brain injuries to internal bleeding and mild contusions. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, we always recommend seeing a doctor. It is best to be cautious and determine the best course of action for recovery. Before any of our personal injury lawyers accept a car accident case, we always require our potential clients to seek medical attention.


Recovering From Your Injuries

Recovering from an automobile accident includes handling costs such as medical bills, lost wages, and even the loss of future income. An experienced auto accident lawyer can help you recover what you are entitled to.


What Can Our Lawyers Do For You?

Our personal injury lawyers have the resources and expertise to help you get fair and adequate compensation for your pain and suffering. The pain and stress resulting from an injury can last long after a car accident victim has healed. The law allows you to obtain compensation if you have sustained an injury because of someone else’s actions. 

Our Process

Ensure You Get The Best Medical Treatment

Our first priority is making sure you are on the best path to recovery so that you can get on with your life after your case has settled. We will focus on your case, while you focus on recovering from your injuries.

Gather Information, Records & Documentation

First, your assigned legal team will gather all the information and records related to your claim. They will use your medical records, bills and insurance policy information to help determine the damages and compensation to seek for your case. 

Investigate the Accident

After they’ve gathered all the documentation, your lawyer and legal assistants will investigate your accident and gather any relevant details that might help your case. Critical information could include security camera video, traffic camera videos, dash cam footage, and police records.

Negotiate With Insurance Companies & The Defense

Before they move to litigation, your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company and the defense to get you the compensation you deserve. In most cases, a settlement can be reached without having to step into a courtroom. If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, your team is prepared to go to trial and present your case.

Insurance Claims & Settlements

The responsible party’s insurance company may be required to cover your future medical treatments, lost wages, property damage and lost future earnings. It is necessary that you take every precaution to protect your relatives and yourself after you have been injured in an accident. 



Hiring A Car Crash Lawyer

Hiring an lawyer to protect your legal rights and explore your legal options. A number of factors are involved in determining the value of your car accident settlement. These include your age, occupation, the type of injuries you suffered, scars or disfigurement, and so forth. The Scranton Law Firm offers free consultations for your legal questions.


Car Accident Claims and Lawsuits

Personal injury lawsuits can be very hard to understand, and the process can sometimes get very complicated. Many personal injury cases call for experience, careful attention to detail, and access to numerous resources. Hiring a car injury lawyer who is well versed in car crash injury law can help you receive proper compensation for your damages. If you plan to seek compensation from the party at fault, they will most likely have a legal team on their side.


Determining Negligence

If you suffered a car accident injury due to the negligence of another individual or entity, the law allows you to recover damages for a wide range of losses. Determining whether a driver was negligent is a question of fact. Each car crash is different and requires a thorough review of the specific facts and circumstances to determine if a driver was negligent. This is something that should be analyzed by an experienced accident lawyer as early as possible. 


You Don’t Pay Us Unless We Win Your Case

The Scranton Law Firm works on a contingency fee basis. That means that we will take care of all upfront expenses like medical bills, so you can focus on your recovery. When it comes time to settle, we only make money if we win the case for you. Even then, it isn’t money out of your pocket. We are paid on a percentage of the settlement amount, so you never have to write us a check! Learn more about contingency fees here.



Frequently Asked Questions:

How Much Does A Car Accident Lawyer Cost?

In California, the most common type of personal injury lawyer fee is a contingency fee. It specifies that the lawyer’s fee is a percentage of the money a client agrees to pay when their case settles, with no money paid upfront. The word “contingent” means that if, for any reason, there is no money recovered, the lawyer will receive nothing for the time spent representing you.

What is the Statute of Limitations For A Car Accident Injury Claim?

One thing to remember is that the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is 2 years from the date of the incident, so we strongly recommend you talk to one of our California car accident lawyers as soon as possible. We offer a free consultation and evaluation of your case.
