Do I Need an Attorney After Being Involved in a Car Accident?

I’m Hurt — What Do I Do After a Car Accident?

DON’T…

  • Panic: Accidents are traumatic. Take a breath, and get yourself together. You can do this.
  • Talk too freely: Instead, be discreet. You can harm your case just by saying “I'm fine.”
  • Talk to your neighbors: Insurance investigators will note any discrepancies.
  • Leave the scene: Always stick around to talk with police and gather information.

DO…

  • Collect evidence: Photos of the scene, and of you and your injuries, will be valuable later.
  • Collect information: From the other driver and from eye-witnesses.
  • Call your insurance agent: This may be even more important than seeing a doctor.
  • Get help: Hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Maximum Compensation for These & Other Injuries

  • Amputation injuries: When a part of the body, such as a limb or digit, is lost during the accident itself or as a necessary surgical operation as a result of the injury.
  • Head and brain injuries: Sudden and severe impact to the skull resulting in concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are some of the most common injuries to the head, along with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Back and spinal cord injuries: These injuries can include compression fractures of the spine, fractured vertebra, paraplegia, quadriplegia, neck injuries, cervical or lumbar herniations, disc injuries, nerve injuries, or damage, nerve compression injuries, whiplash, and more.
  • Burn injuries: Fires and vehicle explosions during and after a crash can easily result in severe, life-altering burns on a section or all over the body.
  • Broken bones: Fractured and broken bones, simple, complex, comminuted, or avulsion fractures, including broken arms or hands, legs, ankles or feet, ribs, collar bones, are a common result of car crashes and other accidents.
  • Soft tissue injuries: These injuries often involve serious damage to the internal organs and structures of the body.
  • Abrasions and lacerations: These include airbag abrasions, serious lacerations from flying windshield glass, road rash from motorcycle and bicycle accidents, and more.

If you were injured, or someone you love was killed because of another driver’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Choose a car accident attorney in Los Angeles who is experienced, aggressive, and dedicated to working hard to get fair compensation for your injuries. Choose Attorney Scott J. Corwin of Los Angeles.

What Causes Most Car Accidents?

The most common factors in auto accidents relate to attention. They happen because:

  • Drivers are exceeding the speed limit
  • Their attention is on something besides driving: using their cell phone, arguing with a passenger, looking for an address, eating a sandwich, changing stations
  • They don’t obey stop signs or red lights
  • They are driving under the influence, and your safety is not their concern

Sometimes the party at fault isn’t another driver. It can be the city or municipality that failed to keep the road safe. Or it can be the manufacturer of a part that fails at a crucial moment.

California Car Accident Statistics

The numbers for California car accidents are staggering. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that in 2019 there were over 3,600 car accident-related fatalities in California alone.

According to data reported by Berkeley, LA County experienced over 45,300 crashes throughout 2020. Of those reported crashes:

  • Nearly 2% were fatal, with a over 700 crash-related deaths
  • About 7% resulted in severe injuries, with over 3,100 victims
  • About 30% resulted in visible but less severe injuries, accounting for over 13,500 victims
  • Nearly 62% of victims complained of pain even without visible injuries following their crash (over 27,900 victims)

The primary causes of these accidents included: Speeding, failing to yield right of way, completing improper turns, and disregarding traffic signs or signals.

Questions About Fees & Insurance

What will hiring a car accident lawyer cost me?

Nothing, until we come through for you. We are only paid when there is a settlement or verdict in your favor. We are paid by the insurance company — you never write a check. Our firm offers no-charge, no-obligation case evaluation.

Will my insurance hold the negligent driver accountable?

It usually does. there are special situations — hit and runs, phantom accidents, and accidents where the party at fault has no insurance or not enough insurance — where the car accident claim is filed against your own policy.

Isn't having insurance enough?

Insurance should cover you for all injuries, but it often comes up short. The last thing insurance companies want is to pay you the full amount you need and deserve. That's why you need an experienced advocate on your side.
