Ewing Law Group

Sacramento Car Accidents Attorneys

Car accidents are some of the most common injury-causing events in California and throughout the United States. Each state has unique laws and statutes in place for handling car accidents. In most cases, the driver responsible for causing a car accident is liable for the resulting damages. However, liability is not always immediately clear, and some car accidents result in significant damages that require the careful attention of an experienced car accident attorney. If another driver recently injured you and you believe they did so because of negligence, reckless driving, inattention, or driving under the influence, contact our office. You likely have grounds for legal action against the at-fault driver. 

At the Ewing Law Group, we believe in protecting our clients’ rights, ensuring the most substantial plaintiff recovery possible in every case we handle, and providing every client with individualized, responsive attention. A car accident claim can involve complex insurance issues and even touch on criminal law, so working with the right Sacramento car accident lawyer is essential. Ensure the best possible outcome for your car accident claim with our help.

Proving Fault for a Car Accident in Sacramento

A car accident claim falls under the purview of personal injury law, meaning the root legal concept in a car accident claim is negligence. This term describes a party’s failure to exercise reasonable care in a given situation. In a car accident claim, negligence could include a moving violation, speeding, driving under the influence, or driving while distracted by a cell phone. It is also possible for multiple parties to bear fault for a car accident. 

Your car accident attorney must identify the party or parties responsible for causing your damages, provide evidence that clearly shows the full extent of your claimed damages, and prove those damages would not have occurred without the defendant’s ensuing actions.

Compensation From Car Accident Claims

A car accident can easily cause significant damages, including: 

Medical expenses. The plaintiff in a car accident lawsuit can claim compensation for the medical expenses incurred from the accident. This includes the costs of necessary future treatments like physical therapy, rehabilitation, and necessary future surgeries.

Lost income. A car accident may leave the victim unable to work for an extended time while they recover, or they may develop a permanent disability that prevents them from working in the future. A plaintiff can recover these losses with the help of a financial expert witness who can explain the lost earning potential in understandable terms to the court.

Property damages. Plaintiffs can claim vehicle repair costs if their vehicles require significant mechanical work, or they may claim the full book value of a vehicle that was damaged beyond repair in their accident.

Pain and suffering. California state law allows personal injury plaintiffs to claim compensation for physical pain, mental distress, and emotional suffering caused by a defendant’s actions. The amount the plaintiff receives depends on the severity of their combined damages and the judge’s interpretation of the facts of the case.

Typically, the first step in recovering these damages in a car accident claim is by filing an insurance claim against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance policy. California upholds fault-based rules for car accidents in the state and requires all licensed drivers to carry auto insurance at all times. However, minimum insurance coverage is not always enough to fully compensate for a victim’s losses. In those cases where the at-fault driver has little or no insurance, the Ewing Law Group can help. Dealing with an insurance carrier is rarely easy since they tend to avoid paying out on claims and minimizing claim awards as much as possible.

We are accustomed to dealing with difficult insurance claim adjusters. Having legal representation on your side will significantly expedite the handling of your claim.
