If you are a San Pedro accident victim or surviving loved one, you may be entitled to legal compensation was caused by a reckless or negligent party’s actions. The Ledger Law Firm will fully investigate your claim to determine whether legal compensation is owed and precisely who is responsible for your injuries.
With our help, you will secure fair compensation for your injuries instead of the unfair offer received from an insurance company protecting its own interests. The Ledger Law Firm is led by Emery Ledger, a nationally acclaimed personal injury attorney with a reputation for building the strongest possible case for personal injury victims.
When you reach out to a San Pedro Ledger Law attorney, expect to receive reliable legal counsel that will help you properly document injuries, prove liability and get you the compensation that is owed through a fair settlement or at trial.
Understand That an Insurance Company’s First Offer Is Far From Final
Understandably, many accident victims are desperate to receive money immediately, given the need to pay for medical bills or to compensate for time away from work. However, the insurance company also knows this, and it is their business model to limit the compensation you rightly deserve.
As such, their first offer is not final. Rather, it is almost certainly intentionally low, particularly in the state of California (a state that generally does not cap the compensation injury victims can obtain). As such, reaching out to a Ledger Law attorney should be your first course of action after getting the medical treatment you need.
We will fight for your right to maximize compensation once we have determined the true value of your legal claim. Settling without an attorney’s help can leave victims without the critical funds needed to pay for long-term medical expenses years down the line. By contrast, Ledger Law will help you recover all types of damages that may apply to your San Pedro personal injury claim.
Types of Compensation You May Be Able to Receive
After a San Pedro injury, accident victims often suffer from some of the following common physical injuries:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Concussions, head and neck injuries
- Upper and lower body injuries
These types of injuries may require years of medical costs, and you may also suffer from non-physical damages that warrant compensation, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of companionship for wrongful death lawsuits
Even if you are partly to blame for the accident, California’s standard of comparative negligence means you can still receive compensation if another party is also at fault. In short, it is never in your best interests to assume the facts of your case without talking to a San Pedro personal injury lawyer.
