Regardless of the type of accident, we resolve to take a tenacious approach to recovering the maximum compensation possible for your personal injury matter. Here are several ways you can assist in this process:
- Communication - Do not make statements to law enforcement or insurance representatives that could lead to interpretations of fault. Everything you communicate verbally and by written or electronic statement can ultimately be used in legal proceedings. Never admit fault, even if you believe you hold full or partial blame for the accident. Let your attorney speak on your behalf or prepare you to make statements that are in your best interests.
- Documentation - Collect as much information at the scene as possible including insurance information for all parties, contact information for witnesses, photographs of the accident scene, and any other data that will help us piece together the facts of the claim.
- Recollection - As soon as possible, write down everything you know about what happened. As time goes on, you may lose details, so it is important to capture everything while it is still fresh in your mind.
In California, the injured person has the burden of proof to show how the intentional or negligent behavior of the other party resulted in an accident. To help determine liability, we provide on-the-scene legal assistance when necessary, employing the knowledge of skilled engineers and medical professionals to gain an all-encompassing view of the matter.
Additionally, we investigate whether the involved vehicles are in good working condition and defect-free. We pursue every possible party responsible for your physical impairment or economic loss.Providing Comprehensive Vehicle Accident Case Handling
