Getting into a car accident can effectively derail your entire life. Even an accidental motor wreck has the immense potential to physically and mentally wound you, leaving you with post-traumatic stress disorder, dire physical injuries, or, in the absolute worst of cases, grief from the loss of a loved one. In many instances, this won’t even be the full extent of the challenges you’ll face. You could also be faced with the burden of lost income or benefits, astronomical property damage, and immense medical expenses.

The best move you can make after an auto accident is to find the best possible car accident lawyer. That’s where Kermani LLP’s auto accident attorneys step in. With Kermani LLP in your corner, you can make healing your priority while expert car injury attorneys handle your claim, help you fight the insurance company, and put together a winning case so you are awarded the compensation you deserve.

Common Causes and Types of Car Accidents

Driving is an inherently dangerous activity; you’re guiding a mass of speeding metal down a hard asphalt road while navigating between other vehicles doing the same as you are. Advances in technology such as rear-view cameras, lane change alerts, forward collision warnings, and automatic braking have gone a long way to make vehicles safer. Still, they’ve done little to curb driver error behind the steering wheel or neutralize dangerous road conditions. Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Mechanical failure. Whether due to failure to perform routine maintenance or manufacturer defect, a vehicle suffering a mechanical error on the road can easily be the cause of a car crash.
  • Hazardous road conditions. Storms and gale-force winds are a factor in many auto wrecks. Adverse conditions can cause vehicles to hydroplane, fall out of a driver’s control, or careen directly into another vehicle’s direction of travel. Poor road maintenance on the part of the government is also a contributing factor to traffic collisions.
  • Driving under the influence. Thirty percent or about one-third of all traffic fatalities are attributable to drivers operating their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol. Marijuana and other narcotics can also cause an automobile accident.
  • Reckless driving. Another third of all fatal crashes are attributable to speeding. Driving while drowsy is also a form of recklessness and has led to its share of accidents.
  • Distracted driving. Despite driving requiring as much focus as possible, in the modern day, it is rife with distractions. Texting while driving, watching billboards, talking with your passengers, or something as simple as changing the radio station can result in a car accident.

The conditions and behaviors described above can lead to a variety of different car accidents, such as:

  • Accidental collision when merging;
  • Low-impact wrecks;
  • Rear-end accidents;
  • T-bone or side impact crashes;
  • Accidents while attempting a left-hand turn;
  • Pile-up or multi-car wrecks;
  • Head-on crashes;
  • Accidents caused by a failure to yield;
  • Accidents involving a single-vehicle;
  • Sideswipe collisions;
  • Hit-and-run incidents;
  • Rollover accidents;
  • Collisions in an intersection.

No matter the cause or nature of the accident, Kermani LLP is a reliable firm of accident attorneys capable of providing the help you need.

What to Do Immediately Following a Car Accident

In the immediate aftermath of a traffic accident, there is a handful of important steps you should take both for the sake of your health and the viability of your case. Though your condition after an accident is largely outside of your control, you should attempt to do the following, if possible:

  1. Contact the police: Your first order of business after an auto collision should be to inform law enforcement of the accident. After they show up on the scene, request that the responding officers write a police report. Even though police reports are sometimes inaccurate, a police report could become one of your most crucial resources for proving the other party’s liability in the accident.
  2. Seek medical attention: Believe it or not, seeing a doctor is critical to more than just your health. Failure to seek medical attention after an accident could be interpreted by an insurance company as an admission that you are not injured. Going to the hospital after a wreck leaves a paper trail and builds evidence for your case. Beyond legal considerations, you should see a doctor to protect your own health. You might feel okay,  but the adrenaline in your body may prevent you from feeling the injuries you have sustained. Even a simple injury can develop into a far more complicated, costly-to-treat condition if left unaddressed. 
  3. Take pictures: Snap photographs of the scene of the crash. Make sure the pictures you take include the damage inflicted on both vehicles. Additionally, ensure you also take pictures of any injuries sustained by you and any passengers you may have. All pictures are objective evidence of the traffic accident, and the more evidence you have, the more an auto accident law firm can do.
  4. Never make apologies: You should not apologize to the other party, as this can be viewed as an admission of liability which is almost guaranteed to be used against you. After an accident, you should only speak with the other party to exchange insurance information. Beyond that, the only talking you should do is to the police and car accident law firms.

What Compensation Is Available After a Car Accident Injury?

In the event you were injured in an auto accident that was the result of another person’s recklessness or negligence, you should obtain the services of an experienced car accident injury lawyer. You should only trust a skilled automobile accident attorney to secure the maximum possible compensation for your losses.

Even a minor accident’s seemingly meager price tag can quickly spiral into a monstrous expense as lost wages and other expenses snowball while you take months or years to recover. That’s why it’s so important you seek compensation.

There are two basic varieties of compensation you may be entitled to if you were injured in  a motor accident as a result of someone else:

  1. General damages: Loss of consortium, emotional suffering, physical pain, etc.
  2. Specific damages: Repair or necessary modification to the vehicle, past and future medical expenses, lost earning potential, lost wages, etc.

Choose Kermani LLP for an auto accident firm that has known success after success since 2011.

Building Your Case: Evidence Collection and Analysis

As discussed earlier, the more evidence you have, the stronger your case. An auto accident lawyer will do the following to bolster your case:

  • Interview witnesses.
  • Obtain and review medical records.
  • Take depositions from others involved in the wreck.
  • Calculate damages, economic and otherwise.
  • Handle negotiations with the insurance company over your settlement amount.
  • Act as a liaison between you and the insurance company.

Effective Negotiation Strategies for Maximum Compensation

A successful auto injury attorney is a relentless negotiator who plays hardball with insurance companies. Kermani LLP does not accept the low estimates insurers often open negotiations with. This is because they are experienced car wreck lawyers who know what you deserve and how best to ensure you receive it.

While you could represent yourself, this is unwise since the other party and the insurance company will likely have their lawyers. You need a car accident attorney to fight for you and secure a settlement that covers your damages; the alternative could be financially devastating.

Along every step of the settlement process, Kermani LLP will take your individualized needs into account. You can rest assured that compensation will be obtained in proportion to the damages you suffered, so you won’t be out in the cold if you need additional medical care.

How can a car accident attorney help me with my case?

A car accident attorney can help you consider your legal options for compensation, make informed decisions on how to handle your case, properly value the extent of your losses, help you identify what types of evidence to collect, file the right paperwork, negotiate with the other party, and represent you if your claim goes to court.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim?

In general, you have two years from the date of your car accident to seek out a personal injury claim for compensation. There are a few exceptions to this rule, like if you were a minor at the time of the crash or your injuries were not reasonably known until later. An attorney can help you determine if the time limit for seeking a claim has expired based on your circumstances.

What types of compensation am I entitled to after a car accident?

After a car accident that was someone else’s fault, you’re entitled to compensation that is equal to the amount of financial losses you sustain as a result. This compensation should cover medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, emotional distress, and possibly more depending on your situation.

How is fault determined in a car accident case?

In a car accident claim, fault is usually determined based on who violated a traffic law, drove carelessly, or otherwise caused the accident. An initial investigation is conducted by police at the scene of the crash, but future investigations can also take place by private investigators, legal teams, or other parties.

Should I talk to the insurance company before consulting a lawyer?

It’s best to talk to an attorney before you speak with any insurance company about your accident. While you may trust your insurance provider, keep in mind that an insurance adjuster has a huge incentive to minimize your claim or even deny it entirely. You’ll want to get advised on what to say and what not to say to protect your rights. For instance, you don’t want to talk about the extent of your injuries until you know more. A simple statement like, “I’m okay” or “I’m still working” could impact a future claim.

How does a lawyer calculate the damages for my car accident case?

Your lawyer will calculate the damages associated with your car accident claim by adding up your losses. These losses may include your medical bills, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, therapy costs, and more depending on the exact circumstances of your losses.

Can I claim for emotional distress or trauma after a car accident?

Yes. Emotional distress, trauma, or pain and suffering are all considered non-economic damages that you can pursue after an accident.

What if the other driver involved in the accident was uninsured?

If the other driver was uninsured, then you might be able to seek compensation from your own insurance policy or by seeking out a personal injury claim against the responsible driver or another third party that was negligent.

How do attorney fees work in car accident cases?

Most car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee payment structure. At Kermani LLP you don’t pay anything until we win your case. At that point, you’ll give the lawyer a percentage of your settlement.
