Hundreds of Gardena residents become victims of car, trucking and motorcycle collisions that leave victims injured or killed each year. In Gardena’s own Los Angeles County, thousands more experience serious injuries or even death. According to research from Stanford Law School, the vast majority of these accidents — more than 90%, in fact — are at least partly caused by the errors of drivers.
Put another way, legal wrongdoing is typically the cause of an accident victim’s injuries. When a legal duty of care is owed to you and was violated in a way that caused your accident and injuries, you may be entitled to significant legal compensation.
Even if you suspect your injuries and legal claim are minor, this may not be the case. Sometimes, injuries that seem minor at first (like a headache) can eventually turn into significant traumatic brain injuries that require extensive medical care and long-term treatment. This is only one reason that it is in the best interests to talk with a Gardena personal injury lawyer who can fully investigate your case and give you the information to make an informed decision.
Settling with an insurance company without an attorney has sadly shortchanged many victims out of the compensation their legal claim is truly worth. In the worst cases, this has left victims without the money that could provide for medical treatments later in life.
The Ledger Law Firm is a nationwide law firm that utilizes its national reach and legal knowledge to make sure you receive a fair settlement offer once the case has been fully investigated.
If Negligence Caused Your Accident, We Help You Get the Compensation California Law Says You’re Owed
California law says you are a owed a basic duty of care on the road, and if someone’s negligence violates this legal duty and causes an accident that hurts you, legal compensation may be owed as well. We will investigate your case and explore who is responsible for the accident, regardless of whether the responsibility lies with a negligent driver, auto manufacturer or even a local government.
Accident negligence can be complex, which is why you need a Ledger Law attorney who will get to the truth of your accident. Never simply assume you have no legal claim, even if you think you were at fault. If your suspicions prove correct, know that California is a comparative negligence state. This means you can still receive some compensation if another party is also partially at fault. When your accident results in serious injuries, the compensation you can receive in a partial fault accident can still lead to a life-changing recovery that makes sure you have needed funds for long-term care.
However, California law generally gives victims two years to file a claim after suffering injuries in an accident. If the claim is not filed within this timeline, your right to file a claim can be lost.
