A serious car accident is capable of changing one’s life permanently and unexpectedly, a principle that is as true for Rancho Mirage residents as it is for any other Californian.
The small, picturesque resort city of Rancho Mirage is an immensely desirable place to call home, but the aftermath of serious car accident injuries can change the trajectory of an otherwise ideal life in an instant.
In 2015, Rancho Mirage’s city of just over 18,000 suffered from 97 car accidents that resulted in killed or injured victims. 17 of those accidents involved alcohol, and another 26 of those collisions involved speeding.
These findings help reveal why Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society found that somewhere around 90 percent of motor vehicle crashes are at least partially caused by human error. When such accidents occur, the accident victim or surviving loved ones need to talk to a Rancho Mirage car accident attorney who holds responsible parties accountable and pursues deserved compensation for victims.
Types of Compensation a California Car Accident Victim Can Receive
So long as another party is at least partially responsible for the accident, you can receive compensation for that party’s proportional fault, even if you were also partly at fault for the accident. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be entitled to receive the following types of compensation:
- Medical Expenses
- Property Damage
- Pain and Suffering
- Lost Wages and/or Future Earnings Loss
- Loss of Companionship/Consortium
There are other forms of compensation that may be justified as well, and talking to The Ledger Law Firm will ensure you file a lawsuit that pursues all responsible parties and all damages you may be legally owed.
