A car accident is a scary experience. After your accident, you likely have injuries to treat, which can result in significant medical expenses. If someone else caused your car accident, they should have to pay for any damages you’ve suffered. Filing a lawsuit and proving negligence against the at-fault party in your accident can provide you with the money you need to move forward.
At The Kindley Firm, APC, we’ve handled many car accident cases. A San Diego car accident lawyer from our team can make the claims process easy for you by negotiating on your behalf while you focus on your recovery. There are specific steps you must take to get the most out of your claim, and our team can properly guide you through these steps.
When filing a car accident claim in California, you must first determine whom to sue. You can do this by gathering evidence from the police, questioning witnesses, and using this information to identify who caused your accident. Once you know who caused your accident, you can prove negligence against them in court.
After successfully naming your defendant, you must then calculate your claim value. To maximize your claim, you must include all of your economic and non-economic damages.
Your economic damages are your financial losses, such as medical expenses, property damage, and lost income. Your non-economic damages are your non-financial losses, such as pain and suffering, lost life enjoyment, emotional distress, and scarring and disfigurement. The liable party in your San Diego car accident should have to pay you for all the ways the accident has affected your life.
