Fatalities accounted for 3,160 of those collisions, meaning an innocent drive to work or vacation spot turned deadly for driver or passenger, or both.
No car accident ends well. With Compass Law Group, PC rigorously defends drivers involved in fender-benders, recovering compensation thanks to qualified Los Angeles car accident attorneys with experience in all facets of vehicular law.
Accounting for all collisions involving victims, California logged 433,231 incidents where either sober or intoxicated drivers hit and killed someone, hit and killed themselves and the other parties, or injured themselves and others. That’s one collision every 1.21 minutes.
Drivers can only control vehicles they operate, having little to do with actions of others. In car accident law, this establishes duty, or one’s responsibility to operate vehicles with skill in the space mandated by law. When Compass Law Group, PC are retained as your Los Angeles car accident attorneys, our focus is fault and duty.
Fault is particularly important because we’re defending clients who generally are innocent of causing accidents. Courts still, however, must clearly know who caused the collision. Duty, of course, is common sense legalese that says at-fault driver had reasonable responsibility to avoid smashing into your vehicle.
Once we’ve verified what we already know, we begin helping victims navigate the claims process with insurers who assume that they owe you nothing more than a Coke and a smile.
Nowhere in existence will you find a ‘cheat sheet’ that says, “Well, the victim has a 1995 Honda Accord and is insured with Progressive. They get ‘x’ payment.”
The claims and settlement process is much like any negotiation process.
Los Angeles car accident attorneys from Compass Law PC have been trained in insurance law, know what the insurer’s attorney wants for his client, and knows what you deserve. Therefore, we approach every settlement claim with your medical needs, presumptive time off work, loss of vehicle, pain and suffering, and what most reasonably juries could award as maximum damages. The case gets much, much more lucrative for victims who were vehicularly abused by commercial drivers.
Understand that we’re fighting in a virtual cage with attorneys, adjusters, and whomever else the at-fault party feels like involving. But when all is said and done, our attorneys will get the compensation you deserve, period. Anything less than the best gets put into the court’s hands, who tend to award much higher amounts when at-fault drivers are proven guilty.
We believe victims of car accidents shouldn’t suffer any longer than necessary. As financial costs mount, Compass Law Group, PC understands that money could be tight. We get it.
