California auto accident attorneys are experienced in California auto accident laws and have access to experts, experts with the inside information and acumen to help procure the best possible outcome for your California auto accident case. These include both medical experts and accident experts. Accident experts review the accident scene and accident reports. They may also create a computer simulation of the accident to help the attorney review the accident for fault.
If you or a loved one was injured in a California accident, you should contact a California accident attorney as soon as possible. Auto accidents have a statute of limitations—once a certain time has passed, you cannot collect the compensation to which you may be otherwise entitled.
If negligence is involved in the cause of the accident (such as a DUI), you may also be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are used as a “punishment” because the negligent behavior of the person at fault caused injury or a death through his or her actions.
