It is safe to say that there is always an at-fault party when a car accident occurs. In most cases, the at-fault party is one of the drivers involved; however, vehicle collisions can also occur if a manufacturer designed or produced defective auto parts, which caused the collision to occur. Regardless of what the case may be, victims of accidents have the right to pursue maximum compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Damages We Can Pursue

At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, our aim is to obtain the best possible recovery for each and every one of our clients, and we achieve this goal through compassionate, aggressive representation. Two of the most common issues addressed in consultations with clients are damages and eligibility.

Though each case is unique, if you have been injured in an auto accident as a result of the defendant's negligent actions, then he or she can be held liable for the following damages:

  • Property damage
  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Loss of wages relating to the accident
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering

If the plaintiff has been permanently injured and is unable to work or has continuous medical needs as a result, then he or she can also receive compensation for future medical bills or loss of wages. If such an incident occurs, we will work vigorously on your behalf, along with medical specialists, economists, and rehabilitation counselors to help ensure you are justly compensated.

Compensation for Vehicle Damages/Total Loss of Vehicle

If you were involved in a car accident, it’s likely that your vehicle has sustained some degree of damage. Depending on the extent of the damage, you could be looking at costs ranging from hundreds to even thousands of dollars. Thankfully, you may be able to recoup some or all of your losses through auto insurance coverage. Essentially, you have two options: file a claim with the at-fault party’s auto insurance provider or file a claim with your own auto insurance provider.

If another person caused the accident, it makes sense to file a third-party claim with their insurance company. This is necessary if you don’t have collision coverage through your own provider, as your no-fault (or “liability”) insurance will not cover your vehicle repair costs. Filing a claim with the at-fault party’s auto insurer will also mean that you don’t need to pay your deductible and then wait for reimbursement. However, if the other person does not have auto insurance or if their coverage is not enough to fully cover the cost of vehicle repairs, you may file a claim with your own insurance provider if you have collision coverage.

In either case, an auto insurance claim can help you cover the costs of:

  • The fair market value of your vehicle if it is deemed a “total loss”
  • Vehicle repairs if the damage is repairable
  • The cost of a rental car while your vehicle is being repaired
  • The value of certain upgrades you made to your vehicle (with limitations)
  • The value of damaged property within the vehicle

Your Rights and Establishing Liability

As an accident victim, you have legal rights. At our firm, our Roseville car accident lawyers want to protect those rights. We are committed to providing our clients with personable, respectful, and compassionate counsel because we understand how trying such a situation can be. An auto accident can have a significantly detrimental impact on your life, and when it's through no fault of your own, it is only right that you be justly and fairly compensated for your suffering. Each driver has a duty and obligation to abide by a reasonable standard and ensure that his or her actions don't negatively impact another individual. If he or she fails to meet this obligation, such as in a drunk driving accident, then the negligent, reckless, or careless driver can be held liable for damages

Our attorneys at our firm have years of experience determining liability in auto accident cases. We work with experts in the field of accident investigation, accident reconstruction, biomechanical engineering, and physics to determine liability and protect your legal rights. The awarding of damages in a case is entirely dependent on liability, so this step in the process is crucial to a successful result.

How Our Car Accident Attorneys Can Help You after a Collision

Seeking compensation after a car accident is not always easy. While you may believe it is obvious the other driver was at fault for the accident, his or her insurance company may dispute your claim. Remember: auto insurance providers are businesses; their primary goal is protecting their bottom line, which they will often try to do by devaluing or denying rightful claims.

Our car accident attorneys can help you fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed. We can thoroughly investigate your accident, working with accident reconstruction experts, interviewing any available witnesses, and determining who was at fault and, therefore, liable for your damages.

After evaluating the extent of your damages—including your medical bills, lost income/wages, vehicle repair bills, rental car costs, pain and suffering, disability, and more—we can submit your claim to the liable auto insurance provider on your behalf. If the insurance provider does not accept your claim, we can then take further action by bringing a personal injury lawsuit and pursuing compensation for you at trial.

Throughout the process, our attorneys will keep you updated on the status of your case and provide the answers and information you need. We represent clients throughout Northern California on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not owe any lawyer fees unless/until we secure a favorable settlement or verdict for you.
