San Jose Auto Injury Lawyer

Auto accidents may happen all the time, but that does not mean that most of us know what to do if we are involved in one. After evaluating the damage, collecting the other driver’s personal information and calling the insurance company, some are surprised to learn that their work has only just begun. If you have been injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence, then you will not only need to figure out the prognosis for your various injuries — and how you will pay for those mounting medical bills — but who can be held liable. Fortunately, California personal injury law allows auto accident survivors recover compensation for any wrongful harm that comes to them. If you are looking to use the rights afforded you for a personal injury, then it is in your best interest to hire an experienced San Jose auto accident lawyer who can protect and fight for you.

How Can Insurance Adjusters Complicate Personal Injury Claims?

In the wake of an accident, it is only natural to want to cooperate with the other party’s insurance company, but we advise against doing so. This is because insurance companies are, first and foremost, businesses whose primary aim is to turn a profit. This explains why many insurance companies have been known to do whatever they must to extract incriminating statements from accident survivors; for example, if an adjuster can get an accidental admission of liability on your part, then that can lead to lessened liability on their part, meaning your case will be compromised.

Since their sole job is to ensure that the company turns a profit, insurance adjusters’ tricks have no end. In order to receive maximum relief — and to ensure that someone is looking after your best interests — it is wise to allow a San Jose auto accident lawyer to handle negotiations with insurance companies on your behalf to avoid traps insurance adjusters often set for injured people.

What Are Some Common Auto Accident Injuries?

Auto accident survivors have been known to suffer a wide variety of injuries, sometimes concurrently. These injuries often include the following:

  • Traumatic brain/head injuries
  • Facial damage, including injuries that affect your vision
  • Spinal injuries, such as paralysis
  • Bone fractures and breaks
  • Limb amputation
  • General scrapes, cuts and bruises
  • Severe burns
  • Organ damage and internal bleeding 

Sadly, some individuals involved in collisions may not survive. This will likely lead surviving family members to file a wrongful death claim. If you have sustained any of the above injuries — or have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one —then you may qualify to be compensated for your losses.
