If you or a loved one has been injured in a Goleta personal injury accident, you can turn to The Ledger Law Firm for legal help in your time of need. In Goleta’s Santa Barbara County, more than 2,700 accident collisions resulted in the injury or death of a victim in 2015. Thousands of victims are injured in awful accidents each year, and the majority of those victims will deserve legal compensation.
Research from Stanford Law finds that it is reasonable to conclude more than 90% of accidents involve human error in some manner. Put another way, it is wise to speak with a Goleta personal injury attorney at Ledger Law before assuming you have no right to compensation.
Accident scenes and gathering the facts can be complicated, but a full exploration of the events that unfolded is necessary to properly determine who the legally responsible parties are. No less important is the fact that a full investigation reveals what your legal claim is truly worth. Too many accident victims settle for a low offer from the insurance company before speaking with a lawyer.
This is a huge mistake, as signing a settlement offer will prevent you from filing a lawsuit at a later time. While it is understandable that victims are tempted to settle as medical bills and stress begin to pile up, but serious injuries deserve legal compensation that can actually make the victim whole. All too often, victims end up not receiving the funds needed to be made whole because of the quick acceptance of a low settlement offer before speaking to an attorney.
Instead of taking this approach, choose to rely on The Ledger Law Firm as your legal ally. We are a national law firm led by acclaimed injury attorney Emery Ledger, who has helped accident victims like you recover millions in owed compensation.
We Pursue the Compensation California Law Says You Deserve to Receive
At Ledger Law, we investigate your case and pursue all applicable forms of compensation you are owed based on the facts. Compensation that can be pursued on your behalf include funds for:
- Medical bills
- Long-term care
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Property damage
Simply put, we will make sure that you receive a fair settlement offer from the insurance company based on these injuries, or we will fight for the successful verdict you deserve at trial.
Even if you are also partly to blame for the accident, know that you can still receive compensation when another party is also partially at fault from a legal perspective. This idea is known as comparative negligence, and California personal injury law compensates victims based on this standard. Do not assume compensation cannot be received until you have been told so by a Goleta personal injury attorney.
In many cases, even your partial fault does not prevent you from receiving deserved compensation. Contact us today for a legal consultation and discuss your Goleta injury claim with a Ledger Law personal injury attorney in Goleta.
