How to Build a Strong Car Accident Claim

The fact is that no one is ever prepared for an accident. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to help yourself prepare for the process ahead.

By keeping the following tips in mind after an accident, you can help our car accident attorney build a more effective claim on your behalf:

#1: Get Medical Attention as Soon as Possible

Regardless of how minor your injuries may appear to be, it is imperative that you seek medical attention after a crash. In some cases, symptoms may not appear for days or even weeks, but prompt medical treatment can help you to prevent an injury from getting worse. Secondly, legitimate medical records of your injuries will be valuable to your accident claim.

#2: Document the Scene of the Accident

If you are able, it is highly recommended that you snap a few pictures of the scene of the accident—even if you only have a cell phone handy. You should also write down everything that you can remember about the accident before details become unclear. Finally, if any witnesses were present, you may also want to write down their contact information.

#3: Keep a Record of Accident-Related Expenses

When filing an insurance claim or pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, it is important to have a clear understanding of just how many expenses were incurred as a result of the accident. You should keep track of all accident-related expenses—including things like medical bills, rental car expenses, lost income, mileage for doctors' appointments, etc.

#4: Talk to a Modesto Car Accident Attorney

One of the most important things that you can do for yourself is to get the help of an experienced lawyer. You need someone who is compassionate, yet aggressive—someone who has dealt with this area of the law before and is ready to help you fight for just compensation. You need our firm. With more than 35 years of legal experience, we have what it takes to fight big insurance companies on your behalf. Let us help you fight for justice.

What Is The Statute of Limitations in California?

The state of California has a two-year deadline to file a car accident claim, also referred to as the statute of limitations. This means you have two years from the date of your injury or you may lose your right to compensation.

Is California a "Fault" State?

California is a "fault" state when it comes to auto insurance. What this means is when an accident happens both parties file an insurance claim. Whoever is at fault for the accident is the one responsible for paying damages.

In a "no-fault" state, an accident victim would file with their own insurance to receive compensation. Fault does not need to be determined in order to get compensation.

This is why filing claims in a fault state can be a more complex process When an insurance company is determining fault, they often put a lot of weight on the police report, if one exists. An attorney can also launch an investigation to determine fault.
