Victims of a personal injury accident will, in many cases, have their lives changed forever. The toll taken on accident victims as well as those closest to them may end careers, require years of medical care and similar costs. These losses and harms deserve justice and compensation for Corning accident victims who are injured because of a responsible party’s legal wrongdoing or negligence.
The Ledger Law Firm has earned a reputation as a nationally recognized law firm that has delivered millions in compensation to deserving victims. Our caring, yet compassionate legal representation will give your case and legal claim the attention it deserves, ensuring that responsible parties are held accountable for their actions and your injuries.
If you have been the victim of a Corning car, trucking or motorcycle accident, here are a few facts to know about personal injury and California law.
California Law Does Not Cap Damages for Most Personal Injury Victims
The best piece of advice personal injury victims can both receive and take is to not settle with the insurance company before talking to an attorney. Insurance companies attempt to limit payouts to accident victims, protecting their business interests while tempting victims to take a quick payout as costs pile up and stress increases.
However, California does not cap the amount of damages you can receive as a general rule. If you have serious injuries that require long-term care, a quick settlement will almost assuredly leave you without the funds you deserve to have in later years.
At Ledger Law, we will investigate your Corning personal injury claim to find out the full value of your claim and who the legally responsible parties are. Armed with the facts and our legal knowledge, we can then negotiate a fair settlement offer that makes sure you are treated fairly by the insurance company.
Most Auto Accidents Involve Human Fault
The typical car accident involves human error, at least partially. Indeed, Stanford Law research shows that perhaps more than 90% of car accidents partly involve human error. In legal terms, this means most car accidents will be caused by a responsible party’s negligence or legal wrongdoing.
As such, do not assume you are not entitled to compensation without speaking to a Corning personal injury lawyer at Ledger Law. This is especially important if you assume that you are at fault for the accident.
Even if your assumption is correct, you can still receive compensation for your injuries if another party is also partly to blame. Accident scenes are complex, and multiple parties are at fault in many accidents. You can still receive significant compensation in such scenarios, albeit with reduced compensation that is lessened according to your percentage of legal fault for the accident.
