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.

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.
What Our Clients Say
Where are our Car Accident Injury Law offices?
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.
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.
