Finding yourself involved in a motor vehicle accident can be confusing. A few steps you need to take include:
Call 911: You must make sure that people get the attention they need. Report the accident.
Seek Medical Attention: Even if injuries aren't immediately apparent, seeing a doctor is crucial.
Document Everything: Make sure to take plenty of pictures and record videos if needed.
Do Not Admit Fault: Your words can be used against you later, so do not admit fault.
Avoid Discussing the Incident on Social Media: Do not post anything on social media. It could also be used against you.
Keep Track of Medical Expenses and Losses: Keep track of any bills you incur for property damage, lost wages, or medical expenses.
Contact Your Insurance Company: Inform the insurance company about the accident without admitting fault.
Seek Legal Advice: Consult a personal injury lawyer before settling with insurance. We can help you.
Remember, these steps can make a significant difference in the strength of your claim.
Duty: First, it must be established that the defendant owed an obligation of care to you. For example, drivers have a duty of care to protect others on the road.
Breach: It must be proven that the defendant breached this duty. For example, a driver might have been drunk when he got behind the wheel.
Cause: Next, it must be shown that this breach directly caused the injury. As an example, we would need to prove that the other driver breached his duty and caused the motor vehicle accident.
Damage: Lastly, actual damage (like physical injury) must have occurred because of this breach. For example, we need to prove that the damages you have suffered stem directly from the motor vehicle accident you were involved in.
In Orange County, victims typically have two years from the date of the accident to file an official lawsuit. If this period lapses, the court may refuse to hear your case, making it essential to act promptly.
Economic Damages: Economic damages serve as a monetary representation of the direct financial burdens a victim incurs due to an injury. They encompass tangible losses that can be calculated with relative precision. Examples include bills for medical bills, costs for repairing damaged property, and the value of income lost if the victim was rendered unable to work due to the injury. To ensure accurate compensation, it's crucial for victims to meticulously document every expense and financial loss related to the injury. Let us fight on your behalf if you require extensive medical treatment.
Non-Economic Damages: Non-economic damages recognize an injured individual's intangible setbacks. Unlike economic damages, they don't correspond to receipts or specific financial transactions. Instead, they compensate for the subjective pain, trauma, and decreased quality of life that aren't easily measured in monetary terms. Determining the value of non-economic damages often involves nuanced considerations, as they encompass things like the depth of emotional trauma, the severity of physical pain, and the overall impact on the victim's day-to-day life.
Punitive Damages: Punitive damages go beyond the realm of compensation for the victim. Their primary objective is to penalize the wrongdoer for exceptionally negligent or intentionally harmful conduct. By imposing a financial penalty on the defendant, these damages serve as a potent deterrent, discouraging the defendant and others from engaging in similar behavior in the future. Punitive damages signal society's condemnation of particularly egregious misconduct, emphasizing the importance of accountability and responsibility.
