Contributing Factors of a Motor Vehicle Accident

Car accidents are an unfortunate part of life that many of us experience, either as drivers or passengers. While many accidents are minor, some result in serious injury or fatalities. Some crashes may be due to simple driver error, and others involve negligence such as distracted driving, reckless driving, street racing, or motorists operating vehicles while under the influence.

Other contributing factors involve improper repairs of commercial vehicles or faulty road designs. While car, truck, and SUV accidents can occur in any part of Folsom, some of the more trafficked roads include Highway 50 or Folsom's major roads such as Folsom Blvd., Bidwell Street, Oak Ave, or East Natoma Street.

Folsom Car Accident FAQ

What is a personal injury claim, and how does it work? 

A personal injury claim is a civil lawsuit brought against the at-fault party who caused your injuries. In many cases, having an injury lawyer on your side is recommended. Your lawyer can discuss the accident with the insurance company. Studies show that a settlement is higher when the injured person has retained an injury attorney. Initially, a demand letter is sent to the insurance company outlining your damages and losses without filing a suit in court. Negotiations will begin if the insurance company fails to offer compensation that meets your needs. The insurer often offers a low-ball amount, knowing that the inability to work affects you and your family. If negotiations don't succeed in obtaining fair compensation, the case is taken to court. It is essential to choose a Stockton personal injury lawyer as comfortable in court as at the negotiation table.

Can I file a civil lawsuit without a lawyer? 

Yes, you can file a lawsuit on your own and without a lawyer. However, it is not recommended. Your best chance of successfully winning your case and recovering maximum compensation for your damages is to work with an experienced attorney. If you handle your own case, you will be held to the same standards and must follow the same formalities as a lawyer. The rules of discovery, admission of evidence, and civil procedure can be overwhelming. Any mistakes you make or deadlines you miss could completely unravel your case, even if you think it is an open and shut case. It is essential to have an experienced lawyer guide you through the legal process. If your case happens to go to court, your lawyer can help prepare your personal injury lawsuit.
