Few life events are as capable of turning someone’s world upside down as a serious car, trucking or motorcycle accident. If you or a loved one has been injured or worse in a Salinas accident, know that The Ledger Law Firm is here for you.
Our national law firm is headed by nationally recognized injury lawyer Emery Ledger, who has built a reputation of helping injured clients recover millions in deserved compensation. While nothing can change the injuries you or a loved one suffered after a serious accident, you can receive the justice and compensation you deserve after another’s legal wrongdoing caused your accident.
As such, it is helpful to know that the vast majority of car accidents nationwide are at least partly caused by driver error. In fact, California’s own Stanford Law School found that at least some 90 percent of motor vehicle crashes are either completely or partly caused by human error.
California law permits you to receive compensation so long as another party was partly at fault for the accident, even if you partly contributed to the accident as well. Never assume you are not entitled to receiving compensation after a Salinas accident without speaking to a Ledger Law attorney first.
Accidents in Salinas Are Also Often Caused by Legal Wrongdoing
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s 2015 traffic data reveals that 677 collisions led to victims who were either killed or injured. Of those, more than 100 were speeding related, 55 involved hit and run behavior and 77 involved alcohol.
These findings show that Salinas is no exception to the general trend that serious accidents are often caused by a responsible party’s legal wrongdoing. Talking to a Ledger Law attorney will help you conclusively determine whether your accident entitles you to compensation based on the facts and existing California law.
Time is of the essence, however, to reach out to us after an accident. California’s statute of limitations gives you a finite amount of time after the accident to bring a legal claim. If you wait to reach out to us and the statute of limitations has expired, you may waive your right to the compensation you deserve.
Compensation We Help Salinas Accident Victims Receive
Regardless of whether you were injured as a pedestrian, bicyclist or motorist, we can help you pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and lost future earnings. Further, we can also help you recover damages for property damage, pain, suffering and loss of companionship if you lost a loved one in the accident.
California places no cap on the amount of compensation accident victims can receive, and we use this law to maximize the amount of compensation you receive via settlement offer or at trial.
Do not settle for a low offer from the insurance company without talking to our team first. We know the insurance company’s tactics that are used to keep you from receiving the compensation you truly need after a serious accident.
