Every year, billions in damage and thousands of lives are lost because of car accidents across the country. In fact, the economic estimates suggest that nearly $1 trillion in costs are incurred annually because of the harms inflicted on car accident victims, property and similar damages.
When you or a loved one has been injured in a Sebastopol or Sonoma County personal injury accident, you can count on the team at The Ledger Law Firm to provide you with the legal representation you deserve. Our team is led by Emery Ledger, a nationally recognized personal injury lawyer, and the team itself has earned a track record of helping accident victims across the country recover millions in deserved compensation.
According to the Office of Traffic Safety, more than 3,000 accident victims were killed or injured in 2015 Sonoma County accident collisions. If you or a loved one has been a victim as well, you may be entitled to legal compensation if the evidence shows someone bears legal responsibility for the accident.
Make Sure You Receive Compensation Based on a Fair Valuation of Your Legal Claim
One of the easiest mistakes to make after an accident is settling for less than your claim is worth. After an accident, families are often stressed, vulnerable and feel uncertain about the future. The idea and reality of piling medical bills and lost wages can leave families desperate to settle and receive money to pay these costs.
Insurance companies know this all too well, and they are looking to protect their own business interests by limiting the amount that is paid to accident victims. This is not to say the insurance companies are villainous, rather it is simply to recognize that they are looking out for their business, not the wellbeing of deserving accident victims. Ledger Law works to tip the balance back in the interests of injured victims and families that are counting on this money for their long-term care and well-being.
We dedicate our national resources to providing a full investigation that gathers the necessary evidence to obtain a fair settlement from the insurance company based on California law. The investigation we provide is also critical to finding out what your claim is worth and who the responsible parties are, which is one reason why you should never assume you are not entitled to compensation.
Even if you know for a fact that you helped cause the accident, this does not bar you from receiving money for your injuries. California is a comparative negligence state, meaning you can recover compensation even if you bear some responsibility, so long as at least one other party is also partially responsible as well. Our investigation will uncover the facts of your accident, often finding out that there are one or more parties that bear legal responsibility for your injuries.
Accident scenes are complex, which is why you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to make zero assumptions before relying on the counsel of a Ledger Law Sebastopol car accident attorney.
