Protecting Rights and Interests with Pasadena Car Accident Lawyers
Personal Injury Case Overview
A key way in which an attorney can help a victim of a car accident is with an insurance claim. The reality is that pursuing an insurance claim in the 21st century is a challenging matter. Insurance companies do not willingly part with their money. Indeed, oftentimes an insurance company seems to do everything possible to put up road blocks to a person seeking appropriate compensation for injuries.
A personal injury attorney can also assist a person involved in a car accident caused by someone else in maximizing compensation. In a typical car accident case, loses sustained by the victim of someone else’s negligence include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and permanent disability.
A lawyer can help an injured person obtain compensation not only for current losses, but also for those that he or she reasonably can anticipate facing in the future. A skilled attorney is in the best position to make a compelling argument when it comes to the nature and extent of loses an injured individual can be expected to incur in the future.
Wrongful Death Case
Pasadena car accident lawyers also represent and assist clients in what legally are known as wrongful death cases. A wrongful death is a possibility when a car accident results in the death of someone involved in the collision.
A wrongful death case is a legal cause of action that can be brought by certain family members of a person killed in a car accident. Examples of family members that are entitled to bring a wrongful death case include a spouse, child, or parent of a person killed in a car accident.
Wrongful death cases can prove to be quite complex. A layperson does not have the depth of experience necessary to successful pursue this type of case. Prevailing in a wrongful death case necessitates representation by a skilled, experienced personal injury lawyer.
A key objective that Pasadena car accident lawyers help with is optimizing money paid to compensate the victim of a collision for injuries and damages. Included on the list of what a person likely seeks compensation for are medical bills. In addition, an injured person is likely in need of compensation for pain and suffering.
Other types of losses warranting compensation in a personal injury case include lost wages and emotional distress. In some cases, a person may be entitled to compensation associated with a permanent disability.
Compensation in a wrongful death case pursued by a personal injury lawyer differs a bit. Areas in which a person may seek compensation in a wrongful death case include money for lost companionship, lost income, medical expenses, and funeral bills. What is paid in compensation depends upon the facts of the case and the nature of the relationship between a family member and the deceased individual.
