Automobile accidents are common, especially in locations that feature a dense population. People from all over San Jose and surrounding areas come to the city for work and hundreds of thousands more live inside its boundaries. There are numerous ways that individuals can get into crashes of different types, whether with cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, and more. If you were struck by a vehicle and you were not at fault for the incident, you may be able to receive financial compensation from the responsible driver’s insurance company. However, you may not have any legal experience or know the best route to securing such a settlement. Fortunately, our team of attorneys at Kenmore Law Group can help you through your case. We will represent you and fight for your fair compensation.

Car Accidents and Crashes

Most car accidents can be directly attributed to the negligent behavior of drivers. They may not pay attention to the road or they may purposely drive recklessly. There can be head-on crashes, side swipes, T-bone collisions, rear-end accidents, and much more. In the least damaging of cases, only the cars may suffer scratches or dents while any passengers or drivers will escape unharmed. In other cases, though, injuries can be debilitating.

Some of the injuries that you could sustain from car crashes include:

  • Broken bones
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Closed head injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Sprains and fractures
  • Torn muscles
  • Knee and hip damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Severed limbs and digits
  • Coma
  • Burns and crushing injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Death

The extent of your damages will play a part in your settlement value. Further, the level of negligence will also factor in, and how the accident actually happened. Many times, accidents can be blamed on one driver simply not exerting enough care. For example, drivers usually get into accidents by:

  • Running red lights
  • Running stop signs
  • Failing to signal during turns
  • Turning without looking at their blind spots
  • Driving while tired
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or other substances
  • Ignoring right of way laws at intersections
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Vehicular defects
  • Inclement weather

If you were involved in a car accident with someone whose vehicle had an issue, you may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer of the car. However, these events are not as common as simple crashes.

You may also be involved in accidents with other vehicles. It is not uncommon for those in motorcycles to get into crashes when they are lane splitting or when they are riding in someone’s blind spot. It is much more difficult to see motorcycles than it is to see vehicles, and as a result, crashes are more likely to happen – and because of the lack of protection that motorcycles give, the results are likely to be even more debilitating.

Trucks, on the other hand, are much more visible than motorcycles. There are other problems that come with trucks, though – their size makes it hard for them to maneuver, especially to stop, and the drivers may have issues with exhaustion and visibility of other cars.

No matter what kind of crash you were involved in, we can help. We will connect you with a San Jose motorcycle accident lawyer or a truck accident attorney in San Jose to suit your needs.

Negligent Action and Personal Injury Lawsuits

In order for you to take legal action against the responsible driver for an accident, you must be able to prove that he was negligent. To do this, you must establish four points: that you were owed a duty of care, the duty of care was breached, and the breach resulted in an accident that caused physical injuries. It can be easy to prove the first point, but proving the causation between the breach and the accident may be more difficult.

Further, you will not be able to pursue a personal injury claim if you were not physically hurt. You will only be able to pursue property damage and lost wages in such instances.

It may be hard for you to handle a claim by yourself and prove these points to an insurance agent. There could be any number of reasons for this: you might have little to no legal or negotiating experience, you may be hurt and unable to dedicate time to the claim, or you may be misled by another attorney. Our attorneys in San Jose with experience in car accident cases will work around the clock to win your case for you and prove to the insurance agent that the other driver was negligent.

Gathering Evidence after a Car Accident

Many times, individuals are confused after car accidents. They may be in shock or hurt from their injuries or they may simply want to go home to get the worst part of the incident over with. It is imperative that you take these steps to ensure that you have ample evidence for your claim and that you do not potentially ruin your chances of compensation.

First, seek medical help from the paramedics or go to the hospital. You should always get treated after an accident; there may be injuries that you do not notice that could potentially hurt you in coming weeks. As long as you have medical notes and bills, you can present these documents to the insurance agency.

In addition to proof of the medical treatment, you can provide photos of your injuries. This can prove that you were injured in the manner you claimed. Your photographs should also include the damage to your car (which can supplement a mechanic’s estimate for repairs) and the scene of the accident (which will supplement your claim as to what happened).

Make sure to take down the other driver’s insurance information, name, phone, and contact details. You can present this to our firm so we can file a claim against the relevant insurance company and explain how one of their customers caused such an accident.

Police officers may have shown up, which means that you can request a copy of the police report to add to the evidence pile.

If there were passengers or bystanders at the scene, you can ask them for their testimonies and statements to back up your claim.

Finally, it is important that you reach out to an experienced lawyer in San Jose for car accident cases. You may find it difficult to gather all of this evidence together and submit it to the insurance agency, and you may likely have a hard time following up. Our lawyers will take care of everything for you.
