Auto and Car Accident Lawyer

Auto and Car Accident LawyerIn a matter of seconds, a car crash can change everything in the lives of the victims, their families, and their loved ones. Car, SUV, truck and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 8 to 34 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). A person dies every 12 to 15 minutes in an automobile collision. Traffic accidents injure more than 2.5 million people each year. Automobile accidents cause permanent disabilities such as brain damage, paralysis (paraplegia/quadriplegia), fractures, amputations, injuries to joints and limbs, scars, burns, and other injuries that can steal the independence and day-to-day functioning of the victims of such accidents. These injuries can have serious financial impact upon the victim and their families due to the medical expenses that have been incurred or will be incurred in the future and the loss of income that is associated with such injuries.

Auto accidents are commonplace on the overcrowded freeways of California. Auto insurance companies have worked hard to convince a jury pool that most cases involving automobile accident are frivolous and worth very little. The insurance industry misrepresents facts that insurance rates will go up because there are too many lawsuits. The reality is that lawsuits are filed only after the insurance company has refused to pay the victim what he deserves, or in many cases, refuses to pay anything at all. Insurance companies often blame the auto accident on the victim and try to convince the jurors that a large verdict will ultimately take money out of their own pockets. Insurance adjusters will go to great lengths to avoid paying the compensation that you deserve – even sending out private investigators to secretly videotape you in your day-to-day life, or visiting your Facebook and MySpace pages to collect information about you in an attempt to diminish or discredit your claim. It is critical to retain an experienced attorney to pursue these battles on your behalf.

As an experienced attorney, I work with experts to reconstruct the accident to show that the victim was not at fault and to place the blame where it belongs – with the defendant. Photographs and illustrations are used to illustrate how the accident occurred and how the accident caused your injuries and damages. Please contact Rocky K.
