For the average Californian, car accidents are one of the most common ways to suffer a serious or even life-threatening injury. Still, this does not take away from the unexpected nature of a serious car, trucking or motorcycle accident.
The injuries a victim suffers will need time to heal and money to pay for those injuries, but the stress and uncertainty after an accident can leave victims feeling overwhelmed and vulnerable. Our team at The Ledger Law Firm understands this reality, as we have seen firsthand how much our clients depend on us to obtain the compensation needed to receive long-term care that takes care of California families after an accident.
Our nationwide law firm is led by nationally recognized injury lawyer Emery Ledger, and our proven track record demonstrates that we have helped injured accident victims receive millions in needed compensation. Since the vast majority of accidents on Pasadena and California roads are caused at least partially by human error, it is quite likely you may be entitled to compensation after an accident as well.
Never assume you cannot receive compensation for your injuries without talking to a member of our legal team first. We will unpack the facts of your case and let you know whether you deserve to receive compensation for your injuries.
Pasadena Car Accident Facts
Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society conducted research that shows there is good reason to believe more than 90% of motor vehicle crashes are at least partially caused by human driver mistakes.
The latest traffic data on 2015 Pasadena accidents demonstrates the truth of these findings. 1,367 Pasadena collisions led to victims being either killed or injured in 2015, and 90 of those collisions involved alcohol. Further, an additional 305 collisions involved speeding, while 71 more accidents were of the hit and run variety.
In effect, it is clear that too many accidents in Pasadena are caused by legally responsible drivers making mistakes. Perhaps you made a mistake in your own accident case, leading you to believe you are not entitled to compensation. This may not be the case at all.
California law says that you may be entitled to compensation even if you are partly responsible for the accident. So long as another party was also partially responsible, you will be entitled to receive compensation based on their contribution of legal wrongdoing to your injuries. In other words, regardless of whether you were completely innocent or even primarily responsible, you can receive compensation if another party was in the legal wrong.
California Places No Cap on Damages for Accident Victims
The Ledger Law Firm will fight for the right of victims to receive the most amount of compensation possible based on what we believe your claim is worth. Since California places no limits on the compensation you can receive as an accident victim, we will not rest until we believe you have received a fair settlement offer that reflects the value of your claim.
