West Sacramento Traffic Accident FAQ

Who is responsible for my injuries in a car accident?

The at-fault driver's insurance company is usually responsible for compensating those injured by their insured's negligence. Some motorists may not have sufficient liability coverage for bodily injury, so filing a UM/UIM (uninsured/underinsured motor) claim is often tricky. An experienced car accident lawyer can help handle the claims process. UM/UIM claims may also be filed on behalf of those injured in hit-and-run accidents.

How much does a personal injury lawyer charge to handle my car accident claim?

Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee arrangement. You won't have to pay anything up front or out of pocket. The lawyer only gets paid if they successfully win your case, and the lawyer's fee is a percentage of the settlement they recover for you. This arrangement allows you to choose the best lawyer to represent you without paying substantial legal fees.
