    Do I Need to Hire a California Car Accident Attorney?

    California Car Accident Lawyer

    If you have been in an auto accident in CA, caused by the negligent actions of another person, you must contact a car accident lawyer as soon as possible and pursue compensation for all accident-related damages. Injuries from a motor vehicle collision can result in significant financial hardships for victims and their families, especially when there are issues like inability to work, permanent disabilities, and total loss of the vehicle.

    While hiring a car accident attorney is not legally required, doing so can significantly increase your chances of securing a fair settlement.

    At MVP Accident Attorneys, the car accident lawyers on our legal team possess the skills and experience needed to thoroughly investigate the accident, establish liability, and negotiate with insurance companies to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your losses.
    At MVP Accident Attorneys, we understand the stress and challenges that follow an accident, and we are committed to working diligently on your behalf, fighting for the compensation you deserve and the justice you seek.

    How Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help?

    At MVP Accident Attorneys, our team of car accident attorneys are dedicated to guiding you through the entire legal process with personalized attention, support, and guidance every step of the way.

    Here's how we can help:

    Investigation And Evidence Gathering

    To build a strong case on your behalf, our car accident attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident.

    This includes gathering essential evidence such as:

    • Accident reports
    • Witness statements
    • Medical records
    • Employment records
    • Video surveillance footage
    • Photos of injuries and property damage
    • Any other relevant documents that can support your claim

    Valuing Your Claim

    To accurately value your claim, our car accident attorneys will carefully evaluate various factors, including:

    • Medical expenses
    • How much time you missed at work
    • Pain and suffering
    • How the accident has impacted your life
    • The severity of your injuries
    • Your prognosis
    • Whether you will be forced to change careers due to your injuries
    • Whether you will be able to return to work at all

    And other variables.
    We will also consult with experts to determine what your future medical costs will be.
    Experts we may consult with include:

    • Forensic accountants
    • Occupational therapists
    • Physical therapists
    • Economists
    • Life care planners
    • Your treating physicians

    And other experts.
    This in-depth assessment helps us establish a reasonable settlement range, ensuring we pursue maximum compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.

    Settlement Negotiations

    If you were seriously injured in an auto accident, negotiating with a claims adjuster can quickly become frustrating and overwhelming. An insurance adjuster may try to offer you a fast settlement, hoping you'll accept their offer and go away. While it may be tempting to accept the money, these fast settlements are never enough to cover the total cost of accident-related damages.

    During this challenging and stressful time, you need an experienced car accident lawyer in your corner to level the playing field.

    At MVP Accident Attorneys, our legal team will handle settlement negotiations and will work tirelessly to secure fair compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses. We're familiar with the tactics used by insurance companies to minimize payout or deny a claim and we will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the fair settlement you're owed.

    When Do I Need To File A Lawsuit?

    In the event that a fair settlement cannot be reached, our car accident attorneys are fully prepared to take your case to trial. We will provide aggressive representation in court, presenting a compelling case to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome. Our trial experience ensures that we are well-equipped to fight for your rights in the courtroom if necessary.

    What Are The Statutes Of Limitations in California?

    In California, you will have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. Failure to take legal action within this time frame may result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for all accident-related expenses. However, there are exceptions to this rule.

    If injuries are not immediately apparent, the discovery rule allows the two-year time limit to begin when the injury is discovered or should have been discovered with reasonable diligence. Additionally, special rules apply for cases involving minors and government entities.

    What If I'm Partially to Blame for the Motor Vehicle Collision?

    In California, you can still recover compensation for your accident-related losses, even if you are 99% at fault for the collision. However, your settlement or award will be reduced based on your percentage of fault.

    What Are Common Car Accident Injuries in California?

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
