Have you or a loved one been injured in a Clear Lake Keys car, trucking or motorcycle accident? If so, pursue the legal compensation that may be owed to you with the help of The Ledger Law Firm.
Led by nationally acclaimed injury attorney Emery Ledger, our law firm is committed to providing compassionate, dedicated and effective representation that helps California families repair their lives after a devastating personal injury accident.
Our national resources and knowledge of California law have been used to help personal injury victims recover millions in owed compensation via settlement and jury verdict alike. Here are a few reasons why you may wish to speak with a Ledger Law accident attorney about your Clear Lake Keys accident.
Accidents Often Require Significant Compensation for Victims to Be Made Whole
Nationally, car accidents alone lead to damages that are difficult for the mind to even fathom. Indeed, federal data estimates that nearly $1 trillion in accident costs occur each year. Nearly $600 billion of that figure is attributed to costs related to loss of life, pain and decreased quality of life.
California estimates costs stemming from only crash-related deaths lead to $4.48 billion in costs each year. Once non-fatal accident costs are included, this figure increases markedly.
These figures help highlight why it is a mistake to settle with the insurance company before speaking with a personal injury lawyer post-accident. Insurance companies are merely protecting their business interests, but a Ledger Law attorney will fully evaluate your claim to find out who the responsible parties are while determining the full value of your legal claim.
California Law Typically Places No Limits on the Compensation You Can Receive
Accident victims in the state of California can receive the compensation that is truly deserved based on the harms suffered in most cases. No limit is placed on the compensation most accident victims can receive, meaning we can help you pursue and recover all forms of compensation that apply to the facts of your legal claim.
You Can Receive Compensation Even If You Are Partly Responsible
If you are partly at fault for your accident, you can still receive compensation if another party also bears a portion of legal responsibility for the accident and your injuries. California is a comparative negligence state, meaning you can still receive compensation when you are one of multiple parties at fault.
Do not assume you cannot receive compensation until a Clear Lake Keys personal injury attorney has thoroughly investigated your claim.
Do Not Wait Until It Is Too Late to File a Claim
California’s statute of limitations gives most accident victims two years to file a legal claim against responsible parties post-accident. If a lawsuit is not filed against the responsible party within that allotted timeframe, the victim’s right to legal compensation can be lost.
