How soon after an accident should one seek legal representation?

It's a good idea to seek legal representation as soon as possible after a car accident. The sooner you get in touch with our car accident injury lawyers, the more effectively we can guide you successfully through the initial stages of filing a claim. This includes collecting evidence, speaking with witnesses, and ensuring you don’t say anything which could hurt your case to the insurance companies. In California, there’s a “statute of limitations” time period for filing a car accident claim. This means you have a limited amount of time in which to take legal action. Starting the process early helps ensure your lawyer has ample time to build the strongest case on your behalf. So don’t wait – reach out to our experienced motor vehicle injury lawyers immediately after your accident to safeguard your rights and seek the full compensation you deserve.

How can our firm help if there were multiple vehicles involved in the accident?

When multiple vehicles are involved in an accident, determining liability and dealing with the claims process becomes significantly more complex. At Braff, our firm is well-versed in car accident injury law and has the necessary expertise to handle multi-vehicle accidents. Our team conducts a thorough investigation to establish all the facts of the case and identify all liable parties. This investigation may involve gathering evidence, consulting with accident reconstruction experts and reviewing police reports.
We communicate and negotiate on your behalf with the insurance companies of all parties involved. Our goal is to ensure you are fully compensated for all your injuries and damages. With our experienced attorneys by your side, you can simply focus on your recovery while we handle all the legal complexities from multi-vehicle accident cases.

What types of damages can be claimed in a car accident?

After a car accident, there are many types of damages you can claim to compensate you for the losses you’ve suffered. First, there are medical expenses, which include the costs of hospital stays, doctor’s visits, physical therapy, plus any medication and medical equipment you might need because of the accident.
Another type of damage you can claim is lost wages. If the accident caused you to miss work (or made it impossible for you to perform your job as usual), you can be compensated for the money you should have earned.
There’s also property damage, which covers the costs to repair (or replace) your vehicle, along with any other property that was damaged in the accident.
Pain and suffering is another category. This type of compensation accounts for the physical pain and emotional distress you’ve experienced due to the accident.
Lastly, in some cases, you can claim punitive damages. This isn’t about compensating you for a specific loss, but rather punishing the person responsible for the accident, if their conduct was particularly reckless or negligent.
At Braff, our personal injury law firm is here to guide you every step of the way and maximize the compensation you receive. Reach out to us now for expert assistance in handling your car accident claim.

Watch Out

It's common for the other side's insurance company to call you shortly after your accident, acting like they’re “just calling to see how you're doing”. But you should be careful, since they usually have other motives in mind. They may quickly ask you to give a recorded statement, saying it’s “to figure out who’s responsible”. What they’re really trying to do, however, is use what you say against you later, in order to question if you’re telling the truth. You should know that in California, you don't have to talk with the other person’s insurance company without a lawyer. It’s best to say “no” and then call us right away to set up a time for a free discussion about your case.

Car Accident Injury Claims Most Frequently Asked Questions

We operate on a “contingency fee” arrangement. Under this structure, the client doesn’t need to pay any fees, nor expenses, unless the lawsuit is successful. If the client doesn’t recover any compensation from their injury case, there are no lawyer fees.

The timeline for a car accident lawsuit in California varies greatly depending on the complexity of the case; the severity of your injuries; the degree of fault; and the negotiation process with insurance companies. Cases can be resolved between several months and over a year.
You will have a legal professional for life when you or your family needs us. Allow our lawyers to defend you; once we are assigned to your personal injury case, all you’re required to do is concentrate on your recovery, while we prepare the best case for you.

Yes. California operates under a “pure comparative negligence” rule, so even if you are partially at fault, you can still recover damages. However, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage you are at fault.

Proving fault often requires collecting evidence such as police reports, witness statements, photos of the accident scene and medical reports. Our experienced car accident lawyers assist in gathering and presenting this evidence to build the strongest case for you.

If contacted by the other driver’s insurance company, it’s advisable not to provide any statements (or sign any documents) without consulting our lawyers first. These companies might use your statements against you to try and reduce your claim.

In car accident cases, “accident reconstruction” experts play a crucial role in figuring out what exactly happened during the collision. These experts have special training and tools to analyze the scene, examine the vehicles, and study any other evidence such as tire marks and debris. They use this information to create a detailed synopsis of how the accident occurred. Our motor vehicle accident personal injury lawyers work closely with these experts to ensure your side of the story is strongly supported by evidence.
