In 2015, nearly 1,400 collisions occurred in Sausalito’s Marin County that led to victims being either killed or injured. This is yet another sad reminder of the devastating toll motor vehicle accidents take on the lives of Californians and Sausalito residents every year.
If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, our team of Sausalito personal injury attorneys at The Ledger Law Firm is here to help. The team is guided by nationally recognized personal injury lawyer Emery Ledger, and our team has collectively earned a reputation for helping victims recover the compensation that is legally owed to them.
We are a caring law firm that focuses on getting you the results that you will need to take care of your injuries and your loved ones for the long-term. Moving forward in life after a difficult accident is never easy, but the process becomes easier when you receive justice and the money you will need to receive quality medical care.
To this end, we fight to make sure you receive the compensation that is truly deserved, not the lesser amount that the insurance company will offer.
The Ledger Law Firm Works to Maximize the Value of Your Legal Claim
Every year, estimates indicate that nearly $1 trillion in accident-related costs occur across the nation. These staggering numbers are a reminder that your legal claim and the injuries you suffered are valuable. The insurance company will likely try to convince you otherwise, in an effort to limit the financial compensation paid to deserving victims.
Reject any and all settlement offers until you have spoken to a Sausalito personal injury attorney first. At Ledger Law, we use our national resources to conduct a comprehensive investigation that determines who the legally responsible parties are, what injuries you have suffered and the legal worth of your claim based on all relevant facts.
Once we have this information, we apply existing California personal injury law to enter into negotiations with the insurance company until a fair settlement is reached that maximizes the legal compensation you deserve.
The Majority of Car Accidents Involve Human Error
Receiving legal compensation in California requires that a legally responsible party caused your accident and injuries. As it happens, the overwhelming majority of car accidents involve human error that rises to the level of negligence. Stanford Law research has found that as much as 93% of motor vehicle accidents may involve human error, at least partly.
As such, it is important to never assume that legal compensation is out of your reach. This is especially important if you think or even know that you bear some responsibility for causing the accident. As a comparative negligence state, California law allows you to receive compensation for your injuries if you bear some legal responsibility, so long as another party to the accident also caused your injuries and bears some legal responsibility.
The Ledger Law Firm will help you navigate these legal complexities and find out whether you are entitled to legal compensation after a Sausalito accident. Contact us online to speak with a personal injury lawyer about the facts of your accident today.
