  • ¿Qué sucede si estoy involucrado en un accidente automovilístico en otro estado?

    Nadie espera verse involucrado en un accidente automovilístico grave mientras visita otro estado por trabajo o vacaciones. Lamentablemente, sucede todo el tiempo, y cuando pasa, puede hacer que presentar una demanda por lesiones personales y buscar compensación por lesiones y daños sea aún más complicado y confuso. Si resultó herido en un accidente automovilístico causado por la negligencia de otra persona o entidad mientras estaba fuera del estado, esto es lo que necesita saber para proteger su derecho a la recuperación.
    Después de un accidente fuera del estado, los pasos iniciales que tomará para proteger sus derechos son prácticamente idénticos a los que tomaría después de verse involucrado en un accidente en su estado de origen. Por ejemplo, querrás:
     
    • Informe el accidente a la policía.
    • Tome fotos de la escena del accidente, así como también de daños a la propiedad o lesiones.
    • Intercambiar información de contacto y seguro con el otro conductor
    • Averigüe si alguien fue testigo del accidente y escriba su información de contacto.
    • Busque atención médica inmediata.
    • Informe a su compañía de seguros de automóviles del accidente.
     
    Después de eso, querrá hablar con un abogado experimentado en el estado donde ocurrió el accidente. Dado que el accidente ocurrió en un estado diferente, cualquier reclamo o demanda de seguro posterior se regirá por las leyes de lesiones personales de ese estado. Un abogado con experiencia en accidentes automovilísticos puede ayudarlo a comprender sus derechos y opciones legales, evaluar la solidez de su caso, identificar posibles acusados ​​y determinar qué tipos de compensación puede perseguir. Después de regresar a California, un abogado local puede ayudarlo a encontrar un abogado altamente calificado en el estado donde ocurrió la lesión.

  • ¿Hay alguna diferencia entre un abogado de accidentes de motocicleta y un abogado de accidentes automovilísticos (o un abogado de lesiones personales)?

    En California, no hay especialidades o especialistas certificados para abogados de accidentes de motocicletas, abogados de accidentes automovilísticos o incluso para abogados de lesiones personales. Aunque todos los abogados con licencia son legalmente capaces de representar a las personas lesionadas, no todos los abogados están debidamente equipados para manejar los problemas desafiantes que surgen en un choque de motocicletas. Para asegurar la mejor recuperación de su caso de accidente de motocicleta, es muy importante que encuentre un abogado con experiencia y un historial exitoso en el manejo de "accidentes de motocicleta" como parte de su historial de casos.

    Un abogado experto en litigar un caso de motocicleta comprende los prejuicios únicos que tienen los miembros del jurado contra los motociclistas y su percepción de que los ciclistas son imprudentes, irresponsables y la causa de sus propias lesiones. Además, las lesiones a menudo son únicas o sustancialmente más graves que impactos similares entre vehículos. Además, en muchos casos de motocicletas, el motociclista no puede recordar los eventos, no sabe cómo ocurrió el impacto o está demasiado lesionado para ayudar a establecer los hechos del caso. En otros casos, la muerte del motociclista deja un vacío en la historia de lo que estaba haciendo momentos antes del impacto. Contratar al abogado adecuado, dispuesto a profundizar para encontrar todas las respuestas necesarias para un reclamo exitoso por lesiones en motocicleta o muerte, es la mejor opción que puede hacer una persona que quiera obtener una compensación adecuada por las lesiones o pérdidas sufridas en un accidente de motocicleta.
    Aquí hay algunas ideas adicionales sobre lo que diferencia a los casos de accidentes de motocicletas de otros casos de accidentes y la razon por cual un abogado de accidentes de motocicletas está mejor equipado para ayudarlo a luchar por la mejor recuperación financiera:


    • Lesiones y daños más graves. La mayoría de los choques de motocicletas no son golpes ligeros. Cuando los vehículos de pasajeros chocan con motocicletas, las lesiones resultantes son graves, catastróficas o incluso mortales.
    • Potencial de compensacion más grandes o acuerdos monetarios. Los motociclistas con lesiones devastadoras pueden ser incapaces de trabajar permanentemente y requieren atención médica o de asistencia a largo plazo o de por vida. Un abogado experimentado en accidentes de motocicletas sabe cómo comunicar el costo de tales pérdidas y puede recurrir a una red de expertos calificados para testificar en su nombre.
    • Prejuicios contra motociclistas. A pesar de las investigaciones que demuestran que los automovilistas no son responsables de la mayoría de los choques de vehículos de pasajeros de motocicletas, los motociclistas tienen una reputación de cultura popular por arrojar precaución al viento que puede afectar negativamente su lucha por daños. Un abogado especializado en accidentes de motocicletas viene preparado con los hechos y la evidencia necesarios para devolver la culpa a donde pertenece: a la parte culpable.

  • ¿Cómo pueden ayudar los datos de la caja negra de un camión en mi caso de accidente de camión?

    Después de un accidente aéreo, el registrador de caja negra del avión a menudo puede proporcionar a los investigadores pistas poderosas sobre lo que salió mal. Después de un accidente de camión grande o de 18 ruedas, la caja negra del camión puede hacer lo mismo por usted y su abogado de lesiones personales.

    Los grabadores de caja negra pueden ayudar en los accidentes de camiones comerciales

    También conocidos como módulos de control electrónico (ECM) o registradores de datos de eventos (EDR), los registradores de caja negra se han utilizado desde la década de 1990 para evitar reclamos de garantía fraudulentos y para permitir a las compañías de camiones monitorear de cerca el desempeño de los camiones y los empleados. Sin embargo, debido a que estos registradores recopilan una gama tan amplia de datos, también pueden arrojar información sobre accidentes de camiones y servir como evidencia en una demanda o demanda de seguro de lesiones personales.

    Los dispositivos de caja negra instalados en grandes camiones comerciales a menudo recopilan los siguientes tipos de información:

    • Velocidad promedio general del camión
    • mayor velocidad
    • Si el camión excedió el límite de velocidad y, de ser así, por cuánto tiempo
    • Tiempo Dedicado a Conducir a Más de 65 Millas Por Hora
    • Tiempo de Conducción
    • Aceleración y Desaceleración.
    • Eventos de Frenado Bruscos o Paradas Repentinas.
    • Velocidad y Número de Revoluciones Por Minuto (RPM) Registradas Antes de la Parada
    • Uso del Cinturón de Seguridad
    • Distancia Viajada
    • Ángulos de Dirección y Posiciones del Acelerador.
    • Despliegue de Bolsas de Aire
    • Tiempo de Inactividad
    • Ubicación GPS

    Si resultó herido en un accidente de camión causado por la negligencia de otra persona o empresa, puede tener derecho a una indemnización. Los datos recopilados de la caja negra de un camión pueden ser utilizados por su abogado para probar fallas y daños.

    Sin embargo, si espera utilizar datos de recuadro negro como evidencia en su demanda o demanda de seguro de lesiones personales, debe actuar rápidamente y consultar a un abogado. No todos los camiones tienen grabadoras de caja negra y, incluso si el camión que lo golpeó lo tiene, no hay garantía de que la información que desea estará allí cuando la necesite. Estos dispositivos solo están diseñados para registrar eventos de los últimos 30 días y, en algunos casos, los datos pueden ser destruidos deliberadamente por la compañía de camiones. Un abogado experimentado en lesiones personales de California puede ayudarlo averiguar si el camión involucrado en su accidente tenía una caja negra y, si es necesario, solicitar una orden para preservar esta evidencia importante.

  • ¿Tengo que llamar a la policía después de un accidente automovilístico menor?

    Cada vez que un conductor se pone al volante de un vehículo, corre el riesgo de verse involucrado en uno de los aproximadamente 10 millones de accidentes automovilísticos que ocurren en los Estados Unidos cada año. Aunque algunos de estos accidentes resultan en lesiones graves, daños extensos a la propiedad e incluso muertes, hay otros accidentes que la mayoría de la gente llama "dobladores de defensas"-accidentes en los que el daño a la propiedad es menor.

    Las personas que han estado involucradas en accidentes menores a menudo se preguntan si es necesario, o incluso si vale la pena, reportar el accidente a la policía. No se deje engañar por creer que todo estará bien y que la compañía de seguros se hará cargo de los daños. Casi siempre es una buena idea informar al menos un accidente automovilístico a la policía, incluso si la policía decide no venir a la escena de choque. En algunos casos, los conductores de California pueden tener la obligación legal de informar el accidente para poder presentar un reclamo a su compañía de seguros, como en una situación de escapador del lugar de accidente.

    La ley en California requiere que los conductores denuncien los accidentes a las fuerzas del orden público si hay lesiones o si se espera que el daño a la propiedad sufrido en el accidente cueste más de $1,000 para reparar. Aunque no tenga sintomas de heridas en la escena de choque, las víctimas de accidentes pueden pensar que están en buen estado. Sin embargo, los daños aparentamente menores al vehiculo pueden ser costosos de reparar, y no es inusual que solo unos golpes o abolladuras menor pueden resultar en una reparación que excedan $1,000. Además, las lesiones causadas por estos impactos que causan mucho daño visible aún pueden provocar lesiones graves que se desarrollan en los días, semanas y meses posteriores al choque de vehicle. 

     

    Informar un accidente a la policía también les da a las víctimas un documento oficial para su uso posterior. Hay algunos inconvenientes con un informe policial también. A veces, el oficial investigador hace una determinación de culpa por el accidente, y esa determinación es incorrecta. Si esto sucede, usted puede presentar un informe complementario para corregir los errores en el informe, tal como una declaración incorrecta atribuida al la persona lesionada o algún otro error. Si se prepara un informe policial de accidentes, asegúrese de obtener una copia lo mas pronto posible. Este informe puede ser útil si el accidente resulta ser más serio de lo que se pensaba originalmente, o si existe una discusion sobre la responsabilidad por el choque automovilistico. Por ejemplo, algunas lesiones por accidentes automovilísticos pueden tardar días o más en desarrollarse, lo que también subraya la importancia de buscar atención médica inmediata después de un accidente aparentemente meno. 

     

    ¿Estuvo involucrado en un accidente?

    Si estuvo involucrado en un choque automovilístico, informe el accidente a la policía, aunque parezca relativamente menor. No todas las colisiones llamarán la atención de las fuerzas del orden público, pero usted habrá hecho su parte al informar el choque. Esto puede facilitar la presentación de una reclamo o demanda de seguro de lesiones personales, si es necesario. Además, comprender todas sus opciones después de un accidente es igual de importante. Los abogados expertos del Inland Empire Law Group pueden ayudarlo. Contáctenos hoy al (888) 694-3529 o (909) 481-0100 para programar un llamada gratuita o una consulta en persona para discutir los detalles de su caso.

  • ¿Qué es un tutor ad litem en un reclamo por lesiones personales?

    La ley en California autoriza a aquellos que han resultado heridos debido a la negligencia de otros a buscar una compensación financiera por sus lesiones. Sin embargo, alguien que presente un reclamo por lesiones personales debe tener capacidad legal y la capacidad legal para comenzar el caso. Esto significa que los niños, o aquellos que se consideran legalmente incapacitados, requerirán un tutor ad litem designado para tomar decisiones por la persona incapaz y buscar compensación por sus gastos relacionados con el accidente.

     

    Nombramiento de un Tutor ad litem

    Un tutor ad litem es alguien designado por el tribunal para actuar en el mejor interés de un niño o una persona legalmente incompetente involucrada en un proceso legal. "Ad litem" es una frase latina que significa "para el pleito". Un tutor ad litem se utiliza en un reclamo por lesiones personales que involucra a niños menores de 18 años, o adultos que son mentalmente incapaces de tomar decisiones para su bienestar.

    La mayoría de los casos de lesiones personales, un tutor ad litem es un padre, abuelo u otro pariente cercano. Dado que solo se necesita un tutor ad litem, generalmente se recomienda seleccionar al pariente adulto con más tiempo disponible para dedicar trabajar con el abogado o ayudar a resolver el caso del niño menor de edad. Por ejemplo, si un niño vive con una madre que se queda en casa y un padre que debe viajar con frecuencia por negocios, el hecho de que la madre sea nombrada tutor ad litem permitiría que el caso continúe de manera oportuna. Eso no quiere decir que el padre no tenga participación en el manejo del caso, solo significa que la madre sería la persona designada para tomar las decisiones finales para el caso.

    Si no hay un pariente adecuado disponible para realizar las tareas, o si hay razones para creer que los intereses del niño entrarán en conflicto con los de los parientes disponibles, el tribunal puede designar a otra persona, como un abogado para que actúe como tutor ad litem.

     

    Preparando el Caso

    El papel o rol de un tutor ad litem varía según el tipo de reclamo por lesiones personales y la edad del niño. Sin embargo, la persona que se desempeña como tutor ad litem generalmente será responsable de:

    • Evaluar el caso con el abogado.

    • Ayudar al abogado con cualquier preparación necesaria del caso.

    • Tomar decisiones sobre los problemas de un posible acuerdo.

    • Proporcionar al niño actualizaciones apropiadas para su edad sobre el caso.

    • Cómo se invertirán los fondos del acuerdo para el menor

     

    Problemas de Convenio Para Casos que Involucran a Niños Menores de Edad

    California requiere que un juez apruebe el acuerdo de cualquier reclamo por lesiones personales con convenios mayores de$5,000 que involucre a un menor de edad. Las compañías de seguros a menudo insistirán en la aprobación de la corte, incluso si la recuperación neta del niño es inferior a $5,000 después de los honorarios de abogados, costos y gastos médicos.

    Durante el proceso de liquidación, el tutor ad litem desempeñará un rol en abordar las siguientes preocupaciones:

    • Distribuir fondos a lo largo de la vida del niño.

    • Decidir cómo invertir mejor los fondos del acuerdo del niño.

    • Determinar qué parte del acuerdo pertenece a los padres como reembolso por los gastos médicos pagados previamente del niño

    • Determinar si se debe permitir a los padres usar una parte del asentamiento del niño para hacer modificaciones en el hogar que mejorarían la calidad de vida del niño, por ejemplo como la instalación de rampas para sillas de ruedas o duchas rodantes

    Duración de Participación en el Caso

    El papel de un tutor ad litem no termina hasta que el niño cumpla 18 años. Los niños a menudo reciben acuerdos estructurados que proporcionan pagos periódicos que deberán invertirse para satisfacer las necesidades futuras o asignarse a los gastos de subsistencia actuales. Si el tutor original ad litem de un niño lesionado no está disponible o se considera que no actúa en el mejor interés del niño, el tribunal puede intervenir y nombrar un reemplazo.

     

    Necesidad de Representación Legal

    Aunque a los padres u otros miembros de la familia a menudo se les permite servir como guardianes ad litem para un niño lesionado, la ley en California exige que los niños tengan un abogado para preparar la documentación del caso y representar sus intereses durante todo el proceso de aprobación. Un tutor ad litem no puede actuar de manera pro (sin un abogado) para representar el interés del niño en un acuerdo monetario. Esto se consideraría una práctica ilegal de la ley.

  • What is a guardian ad litem in a personal injury claim?

    California law entitles those who've been injured due to the negligence of others to seek financial compensation for their injuries. However, someone filing a personal injury claim must have both legal standing and the legal capacity to begin the case. This means that children, or those who are deemed legal incapable, will require a guardian ad litem appointed to make decisions for the incapable individual and to seek compensation for their accident-related expenses.

    Appointing a Guardian Ad LitemGuardian Ad Litem for personal injury case

    A guardian ad litem is someone who is appointed by the court to act in the best interests of a child or legally incompetent person who is involved in a legal proceeding. “Ad litem” is a Latin phrase which means “for the suit.” A guardian ad litem is used in a personal injury claim involving children under the age of 18, or adults who are mentally incapable of making decisions for their well-being.

    In most personal injury cases, a guardian ad litem is a parent, grandparent, or other close relative. Since only one guardian ad litem is necessary, it's usually advised to select the adult relative with the most time available to devote to working with the attorney or to help settle the child's case. For example, if a child lives with a stay-at-home mother and a father who must frequently travel on business, having the mother appointed guardian ad litem would allow the case to proceed in a timely fashion.  That is not to say that the father would not have input in the handling of the case, it only means that the mother would the person designated to make the final decisions for the case.

    If no suitable relative is available to perform the duties, or there is reason to believe the child's interests will conflict with those of the available relatives, the court can appoint another person, such as an attorney to serve as guardian ad litem.

    Preparing the Case

    The role of a guardian ad litem varies depending upon the type of personal injury claim and the age of the child. However, the person serving as guardian ad litem will usually be responsible for:

    • Evaluating the case with the attorney 
    • Assisting the attorney with any necessary preparation of the case
    • Make decisions on the issues of a potential settlement
    • Providing age-appropriate updates about the case to the child
    • How settlement funds will be invested for the minor

    Settlement Issues for Cases Involving Minor Children

    California requires a judge to approve the settlement of any personal injury claim over $5,000 that involves a minor child. Insurance companies will often insist on court approval even if the child's net recovery is less than $5,000 after attorney fees, costs, and medical expenses.

    During the settlement process, the guardian ad litem will play a role in addressing the following concerns:

    • Distributing funds over the course of the child's life
    • Deciding how to best invest the child's settlement funds
    • Determining what portion of the settlement belongs to the parents as reimbursement for the child's previously paid medical expenses
    • Determining if the parents should be allowed to use a portion of the child's settlement to make modifications to the home that would improve the child's quality of life, such as installing wheelchair ramps or roll-in showers

    Length of Involvement in the Case

    The role of a guardian ad litem does not end until the child reaches age 18. Children often receive structured settlements providing periodic payments that will need to be invested to meet future needs or allocated towards current living expenses. If an injured child's original guardian ad litem becomes unavailable or is deemed to be not acting in the child's best interests, the court can step in and appoint a replacement.

    Necessity of Legal Representation

    Although parents or other family members are often allowed to serve as a guardian ad litem for an injured child, California law mandates that children have an attorney to prepare the case paperwork and represent their interests throughout the approval process. A guardian ad litem cannot act in pro per (without a lawyer) to represent the child’s interest in a monetary settlement. This would be considered an unlawful practice of law.

  • Do I need to call the police after a minor car accident?

    Every time a driver gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, they're at risk of being involved in one of the approximately 10 million car accidents that occur in the United States each year. While some of these accidents result in serious injuries, extensive property damage, and even fatalities, others are what most people would refer to as “fender benders” – crashes in whichDo You Know What to Do After a Minor Car Accident? property damage is minor.

    People who've been involved in minor crashes often question whether it's necessary—or even worth the hassle—to report the accident to law enforcement. Don't be fooled into believing that everything will be okay and the insurance company will take care of the damages.  It's almost always a good idea to at least report a car accident to the police, even if the police decide not to come to the scene of the collision.  In some instances, California drivers may be legally required to report the accident to be able to make a claim to their insurance company, such as in a hit and run situation.

    California law requires drivers to report accidents to law enforcement if there are any injuries or if the property damage sustained in the crash is expected to cost more than $1,000 to repair. In the absence of feeling injuries at the scene of the collision, accident victims may think they're in the clear.  However, even seemingly minor auto body damage can be expensive to repair, and it's not unusual for just a few dents and dings to result in repair bills exceeding $1,000.  Also, injuries from these impacts that cause a lot of visible damage can still result in serious injuries that develop in the days, weeks and months following the collision.

    Reporting an accident to law enforcement also gives victims an official document for use at a later time.  There are some downsides with a police report as well.  Sometimes, an investigating officer makes a determination of fault for the collision, and that determination is wrong.  If this happens, then an injury victim may want to submit a supplemental report to correct the errors in the report, such as a wrong statement attributed to the injured party or some other error.  If a police accident report is prepared, make sure you get a copy as soon as it is prepared. This report may come in handy if the accident turns out to have been more serious than originally thought, or there is a dispute as to liability for the collision.  For example, some car accident injuries can take days or longer to develop, which also underscores the importance of seeking immediate medical attention after a seemingly minor crash.

    Were You Involved in an Accident?

    If you were involved in an automobile collision, report the crash to law enforcement, even if it seems relatively minor.  Not all collisions will get the attention of law enforcement, but you will have done your part in reporting the collision.  This may make it easier to pursue a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit, if necessary. Also, understanding all your options after an accident is just as important. The skilled attorneys with the Inland Empire Law Group can help.

  • Is there a difference between a motorcycle accident lawyer and a car accident lawyer (or personal injury lawyer)?

    In California, there are no specialties or certified specialists for motorcycle accident lawyers, car accident lawyers or even for personal injury attorneys. While all licensed attorneys are legally capable of representing injured individuals, not all lawyers are properly equipped to handle the challenging issues which arise in a motorcycle collision.  To make sure you secure the best recovery from your motorcycle crash case— it is critically important you find an attorney with experience in, and a successful track record with, handling “motorcycle accidents” as part of their case history.    Motorcycle and Car Wreck on a Busy RoadA lawyer skilled in litigating a motorcycle case understands the unique prejudices held by jurors against motorcycle riders and their perception that they bikers are reckless, irresponsible and the cause of their own injuries.  Additionally, the injuries are often unique or substantially more severe than similar impacts between vehicles.  Further, in many motorcycle cases, the motorcyclist is unable to recall the events, does not know how the impact occurred or is too injured to aid in establishing the facts of the case.  In other instances, the death of the motorcyclist leaves a gapping hole in the story of what he or she was doing moments prior to impact. Hiring the right attorney, willing to dig deep to find all the necessary answers for a successful motorcycle injury or death claim is the best choice a person can make who wants to secure appropriate compensation for the injuries or losses suffered in a motorcycle accident.  

    Here are some additional thoughts about what sets motorcycle crash cases apart from other accident cases, and why a motorcycle accident attorney is best equipped to help you fight for the best financial recovery:

    • More serious injuries and damages. Most motorcycle crashes aren't light taps and fender-benders. When passenger vehicles collide with motorcycles, the resulting injuries are severe, catastrophic, or even deadly.
    • Potential for larger settlements or financial awards. Motorcyclists with devastating injuries may be permanently unable to work, and require long-term or lifelong medical or assistive care. An experienced motorcycle crash attorney knows how to communicate the cost of such losses and can draw upon a network of qualified experts to testify on your behalf.
    • Bias against motorcyclists. Despite research showing that motorists are not responsible for the majority of motorcycle-passenger vehicle crashes, motorcycle riders have a pop-culture reputation for throwing caution to the wind that can negatively affect their fight for damages. A motorcycle crash lawyer comes prepared with the facts and evidence needed to shift the blame back where it belongs—to the at-fault party.

  • What happens if I get into a car accident in another state?

    Car That Was Damaged While Vacationing in Another StateNo one expects to be involved in a serious car accident while visiting another state for work or vacation. Sadly, it happens all the time—and when it does, it can make filing a personal injury lawsuit and seeking compensation for injuries and damages even more complicated and confusing. If you were hurt in a car crash caused by another person or entity's negligence while out of state, here's what you need to know to protect your right to recovery.

    Following an out-of-state accident, the initial steps you'll take to protect your rights are practically identical to those you would take after being involved in a crash in your home state. For example, you'll want to:

    • Report the accident to the police 
    • Take photos of the accident scene, as well as any property damage or injuries
    • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver
    • Find out if anyone witnessed the crash and write down their contact information
    • Seek immediate medical attention
    • Inform your auto insurance company of the accident

    After that, you'll want to speak with an experienced attorney in the state where the crash occurred. Since the accident happened in a different state, any subsequent insurance claim or lawsuit will be governed by that state's personal injury laws. A knowledgeable car accident attorney can help you understand your rights and legal options, evaluate the strength of your case, identify potential defendants, and figure out what types of compensation you can pursue.  After you return to California, a local attorney can help you find a highly qualified attorney in the state where the injury occurred.  Contact our office to find free help for your out of state traffic collision claim.

  • How can a truck's black box data help in my truck accident case?

    Semi-Truck With a Black Box Recorder InstalledAfter an airplane accident, the plane's black box recorder can often provide investigators with powerful clues about what went wrong. After a big-rig or 18-wheeler crash, the truck's black box may be able to do the same for you and your personal injury attorney.

    Black Box Recorders Can Help in Commercial Truck Wrecks

    Also known as electronic control modules (ECMs) or event data recorders (EDRs), black box recorders have been used since the 1990s to prevent fraudulent warranty claims, and to allow trucking companies to closely monitor truck and employee performance. However, because these recorders collect such a wide range of data, they can also shed insight on truck accidents, and serve as evidence in a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit.

    Black box devices installed in large commercial truck often gather the following types of information:

    • Overall average truck speed
    • Highest speed
    • Whether the truck exceeded the speed limit and, if so, for how long
    • Time spend driving faster than 65 miles per hour
    • Driving time
    • Acceleration and deceleration speeds
    • Hard braking events or sudden stops
    • Speed and number of revolutions per minute (RPMs) recorded prior to the stop
    • Seat belt usage
    • Distance traveled
    • Steering angles and throttle positions
    • Air bag deployment
    • Idling time
    • GPS location

    If you were hurt in a truck accident caused by another person or company's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Data collected from a truck's black box can be used by your attorney to prove fault and damages.

    However, if you hope to use black box data as evidence in your personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit, you must act quickly and consult an attorney. Not all trucks have black box recorders and, even if the truck that hit you does, there's no guarantee that the information you want will be there when you need it. These devices are only designed to record events from the past 30 days and, in some cases, the data may be purposely destroyed by the trucking company. An experienced California personal injury attorney can help you find out if the truck involved in your accident had a black box and, if necessary, request an order to preserve this important evidence.

  • What do I need to do after hiring a personal injury attorney?

    Attorney Shaking Hands With a New ClientCooperate with your attorney so they have what they need to build a strong case on your behalf.

    A positive attorney-client relationship is essential to achieving the best possible outcome in your personal injury case. It makes sense: Your attorney has the knowledge, experience, and qualifications necessary to deftly navigate the civil litigation system, while you have valuable first-hand information about the accident and your injuries. After hiring an attorney, here are just a few of the things they may need or expect from you:

    • Follow your doctor's orders. Thorough, well-documented medical treatment is crucial to proving injury damages, so be sure to attend follow-up appointments and follow your doctor's treatment plan.  Make sure you inform your medical providers about all your injuries.  An undocumented injury is generally not recognized by the insurance company when negotiating a settlement.
    • Help gather and provide important evidence. This includes a written summary and chronology of events, as wells as information where you received your injury-related medical care.  If you have medical records, medical invoices and receipts, other receipts, wage statements, and photo, video, and journal evidence, those should also be provided to your attorney.
    • Meet deadlines, uphold agreements, and respect your attorney's time. Time is of the essence when seeking compensation for accident-related injuries and damages. Both you and your attorney are busy, which is why it's critical to respond to your attorney's calls and provide requested information and documentation promptly.  Calling everyday will not speed up the settlement of your case.  Make sure you understand how often you and your attorney should be discussing your case.  Generally, once a month is a good average.
    • Be open and honest with your attorney. Hiding things from your attorney can hurt your case. Tell your attorney everything, even if you think your actions may have contributed to your accident and injuries.  Just because you were partially at fault, in California, you are not prevented from making a claim for financial recovery. It's also important to keep your attorney up to date about any new developments or evidence.
    • Keep the attorney-client relationship professional. Your attorney is dedicated to helping you achieve your legal goals after a personal injury accident.  Since most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, the better your attorney does for you the better it is for the attorney.  Your attorney wants you to get the best recovery possible.
    •  Understand that from a settlement, costs, medical bills and legal fees will be paid. After receiving a personal injury settlement or financial award, it's important you understand there will be deductions from the settlement to pay for costs the attorney has advanced for you, reimbursement to medical providers or health insurance companies and the legal fees your attorney has postponed pending the outcome of the case.  Without these costs, generally, no recovery would have been possible

  • How is diminished value calculated after a car accident?

    Man Using Calculator to Figure Out the Diminished Value of His Car After an AccidentAfter an accident, you may be surprised to find that your vehicle has suddenly lost value, even though you had it fully repaired by a qualified professional. Known as diminished value, the frustrating phenomenon of having your car lose worth simply because it was involved in a collision is due to the fact that most buyers are unwilling to pay full market price for a vehicle that's been in a crash. As a result, your car may now be worth significantly less than it once was.

    However, because California is a diminished value state, if your vehicle lost value because it was damaged in an accident caused by another person or entity's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party. The three main types of diminished value are:

    • Immediate diminished value. This is the difference between the car's resale or trade-in value before the accident and after the accident-related damages have been repaired.
    • Inherent diminished value. This type of value loss occurs when a vehicle damaged in a crash is repaired to its original condition, but is still considered to have decreased in worth as a result of the accident.
    • Repair-related diminished value. Not all vehicle repairs are created equally. In cases of repair-related diminished value, the car's value drops due to the quality of its repairs. This doesn't necessarily mean that the repair work was shoddy, but may indicate the use of generic or aftermarket parts.

    The California Jury Instructions discuss the aspect of diminished value and repair of a vehicle.  One instruction reads in part as follows:

    "However, if you find that the [automobile] can be repaired, but after repairs it will be worth less than it was before the harm, the damages are (1) the difference between its value before the harm and its lesser value after the repairs have been made; plus (2) the reasonable cost of making the repairs. The total amount awarded may not exceed the [automobile]’s value before the harm occurred."

    If you've sold the vehicle, calculating the diminished value can be as simple as determining the difference between the car's value before the accident and it's lower resale price, plus the cost of the repairs. Otherwise, comparing the vehicle's previous value to a trade-in offer from a dealership—or using an online diminished value calculator—can give you an idea of what your diminished value claim may be worth.

    At the Inland Empire Law Group, our skilled personal injury attorneys have helped numerous accident victims collect fair compensation for their personal injuries, and to help them with the diminished value of their vehicle.

  • I may have contributed to my pedestrian accident. Can I still recover damages?

    Pedestrian on the Ground After a Collision With a CarIn California, there is always the possibility of making a claim, so long as the pedestrian is not the sole cause of the accident. As a pedestrian accident victim, you may find yourself severely injured, unable to work, and racking up an outrageous amount of unexpected medical debt. If a motorist was fully or partially responsible for your injuries while you were a pedestrian, you may be entitled to compensation.  Partial fault for the accident in which you were injured does not exclude all rights of recovery.

    You Are Not Automatically Barred From Compensation If You Are Partially at Fault for Your Accident

    In California, having contributed to your pedestrian accident doesn't automatically bar you from collecting compensation. This is because the state follows the legal doctrine of pure comparative negligence. Under this system, all parties are assigned a percentage of fault and then any financial awards are reduced accordingly. For example, if you were 10 percent responsible and received a $100,000 financial award, it would be reduced to $90,000 to reflect your assigned percentage of fault.

    If you think your actions may have contributed to your pedestrian accident, it's important to speak with a California accident and injury attorney as soon as possible. An experienced attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options and, if you hire them to represent you, they'll conduct a thorough investigation into your accident to determine liability and the options you have available. They may even be able to negotiate to have you assigned a lower percentage of fault, allowing you to take home more of whatever damages you may be awarded.

    Consult a Knowledgeable California Personal Injury Attorney

  • I was seriously injured in a traumatic car accident and am undergoing psychological therapy, can this be included in my recovery?

    Car accidents can be both physically and mentally devastating. Though much attention is paid to the physical injuries victims sustain in crashes, these traumatic incidents can also have a distressing impact on their mental health. According to a study conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), nearly 40 percent of motor vehicle accident Portrait of Mental Healthsurvivors develop psychological conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, persistent anxiety, and phobias, such as while driving.

    The effects a horrific accident can have on your mental health can be long-lasting and require extensive treatment—the cost of which can quickly mount. However, if the car crash that caused your mental and physical injuries was caused by another person or company's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for damages.

    A full and fair financial recovery in a car accident personal injury case should include compensation for all of your crash-related medical treatment, including psychological therapy needed to address resulting mental health disorders. In addition to the cost of your therapy sessions, your recovery may also include psychiatric appointments and mental health-related prescription medications.

    However, recovering compensation for car crash mental health issues can be challenging. Fortunately, an experienced California personal injury attorney can help by thoroughly investigating the accident in which you were injured, gathering essential evidence, and building a strong case for damages. In the process, we'll work with your doctors to ensure that your injuries—and their effects on your daily life—are thoroughly understood and comprehensively documented so that they can be conveyed to the insurance company and defense counsel for the at-fault party.

  • Do pedestrian accident victims face bias when seeking compensation?

    Pedestrian Marking on the Road With Tire TracksAccidents involving pedestrians have risen dramatically in recent years, with fatalities reaching a 28-year high in 2019, according to the Governors Highway Safety Administration (GHSA). If you were hurt in a pedestrian accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries—however, don't be surprised if you find yourself facing bias at nearly every turn. This bias can start with the police officers investigating the scene of the crash, journalists reporting the incident in the media, the at-fault driver, and the insurance adjuster assigned to handle your claim and the judge or jury assigned to decide the facts of the case.

    Why is the Pedestrian the One Many People Suspect Is Responsible for His or Her Injuries?

    In 2019, a team of researchers from Rutgers University, Arizona State University, and Texas A&M University set out to test the theory that media coverage of pedestrian accidents may be partially to blame. The resulting paper, which was published in a journal of the National Academy of Sciences' Transportation Research Board, showed that news stories subtly and inadvertently shift blame from drivers to pedestrians in two key ways: by using phrases such as “a pedestrian was hit by a car,” rather than “a driver hit a pedestrian” and describing the incidents as “accidents,” which implies that the events couldn't be avoided.

    This bias is rampant with insurance adjusters processing your claim because the more they can blame the pedestrian for the incident, the less they have to pay for the injuries.  Unfortunately, judges or jurors who hears your case are also impacted by bias to one degree or another. Utilizing a skilled personal injury attorney with experience in handling pedestrian accident cases can help you overcome some of the potential bias.  The attorney will focus on gathering important evidence, interviewing witnesses, and hiring the right experts to render opinions and testify on behalf of the injured pedestrian.  Additionally, because California follows the legal standard of comparative negligence, even if the pedestrian was partially at fault, the pedestrian may be able to still maximize his or her financial recovery even if  partially responsible.

  • Do I need a truck accident attorney, or can I handle my own claim?

    Car Involved in a Truck WreckSimply put, if you were seriously injured or sustained significant losses in a California truck crash caused by another person or company's negligence, you need the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney.  Even if you've successfully handled other car accident claims in the past, the complexity of truck accidents require the right experienced attorney.

    Ways That Truck and Car Accident Cases Differ

    Truck crash cases aren't like other auto accident claims. Here are a few of the ways these two types of cases differ:

    • Greater injuries and damages in truck crash cases lead to the potential for larger settlements and financial awards. Just because your losses are substantial doesn't mean that the liable party's insurance company or legal team will be eager to compensate you fairly. The right attorney balances out the imbalance of power so you can obtain full financial recovery.
    • Multiple liable parties may mean multiple avenues for compensation. In some cases, the commercial truck driver may not be the only one at fault. Depending on the circumstances of the claim, negligent drivers may share liability with a trucking company, truck owner, trucking repair company, or a parts manufacturer.  An attorney you does not look for the simple and quick settlement can identify liable parties, investigate all potential avenues for compensation and can fight the legal battle to secure the best outcome for you.
    • You're likely to face an aggressive corporate and insurance legal team. Insurance companies and the businesses they insure are focused on protecting their bottom lines. They are not in the business of giving away money.  To that end, they often bring in savvy and experienced attorneys to handle litigation with claimants.  Having a knowledgeable and accomplished attorney of your own helps level the playing field and sends a message to everyone involved that your case is one to take seriously.

  • Do I need a motorcycle accident attorney, or can I handle my own claim?

    If you sustained serious injuries and property damages in a California motorcycle crash caused by someone else's negligence and are incurring significant lost wages, medical expenses, and other losses as a result, you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney to ensure the maximum recovery available under the circumstances of your claim.

    Motorcycles provide no exterior protection for riders, which is why injuries motorcyclists suffer in crashes are often catastrophic. After an accident, the severity of your injuries may prevent you from taking an active role in your insurance claim or lawsuit. A knowledgeable personal injury motorcycle accident attorney can thoroughly investigate the accident, gather and preserve vital evidence, identify liable parties, interview witnesses, find all available insurance coverage and perform other essential tasks to build a strong case for damages while you focus on your physical recovery.

    Motorcycle Accident Cases Aren't Like Other Personal Injury Cases

    Motorcycle accident cases aren’t like other motor vehicle crash cases, either. When the significant injuries and damages in motorcycle accident cases lead to the potential for sizable Motorcycle Wreck With a Small Carfinancial recoveries for victims, you can expect the at-fault party's insurer and legal team to fight particularly hard to avoid paying. Without skilled representation, insurance adjusters and attorneys from the opposing side won't hesitate to push you around and trick you into accepting less than you deserve. An adept attorney can handle all communications with the responsible party's insurance company and defense attorneys, and advocate for your best interests.

    Additionally, the old stereotype of motorcyclists being reckless renegades who have no respect for rules or authority can create an implicit bias that negatively affects a victim's ability to recover fair compensation. A savvy attorney can combat this false narrative with facts and help you overcome potentially case-damaging biases.

  • I was injured in a pedestrian accident. Can I still collect damages if I was partially responsible?

    Pedestrian's Hat on a Smashed Car WindshieldYes. After being injured in a pedestrian accident, victims who fear they may be partially responsible for their injuries are often hesitant to investigate their right to compensation. If you find yourself in this position, don't make the mistake of not investigating your legal rights.

    California Follows the Legal Standard of Pure Comparative Negligence

    For personal injury cases, including incidents involving motor vehicles and pedestrians, California follows the legal standard of pure comparative negligence. Thanks to this standard, being partly at fault for your injuries doesn't automatically preclude you from seeking compensation for damages. However, depending on the specific circumstances of your case, it could potentially affect how much you're able to recover.

    For example, if you were injured by a speeding or distracted driver while jaywalking, you and the driver would likely share liability. You would each be assigned a percentage of fault, which any financial award would is adjusted to reflect the percentage of fault. If you were 30 percent at fault for jaywalking—while the driver was determined to have been 70 percent at fault for reckless or distracted driving—and you won a $100,000 financial award, that award would be reduced to $70,000 to reflect the comparative negligence.

    The potential to have your award reduced highlights the importance of having an experienced California personal injury attorney handle your pedestrian accident case. A skilled attorney can investigate your case, gather important evidence, and negotiate to ensure that you're assigned a fair percentage of fault for the accident and your injuries.

  • Our teen was hurt in an accident that wasn't her fault, but the other driver and their insurance company are trying to claim she was responsible for the crash because she's a new driver. How can we prove that the other driver is liable?

    Teen Driver After a Two-Car WreckAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), teens are more likely to be involved in a crash than drivers from any other age group—and their inexperience is often to blame. While that doesn't mean that all teenagers are bad or dangerous drivers, it does make it easier for other motorists—and their insurance companies—to claim that the teen was the one responsible for causing an accident. Fortunately, if your teen was hurt in a crash that wasn't their fault, the experienced injury recovery professionals with the Inland Empire Law Group can fight to establish the other driver's liability and recover the compensation your child needs and deserves for their injuries.

    Attorneys Can Help Determine Which Party Was Liable for an Accident

    For example, we can conduct a thorough investigation into the crash, gather valuable evidence, interview witnesses, and hire accident reconstructionists or other experts to testify on your teen's behalf. Things like great attendance and performance in school, good student auto insurance discounts, successfully completed internships, and other accomplishments can also be used to show that your teenager has good character and is a responsible person.

    After a serious accident, your teen may be entitled to compensation for a wide range of economic and non-economic damages. In addition to compensation for all accident-related medical expenses, financial recovery may include lost wages if your teen missed work because of the crash, as well as damages for physical pain and suffering, emotional anguish, scarring or disfigurement, and more.

    We Can Help Your Teen Fight for the Compensation They Deserve

    At the Inland Empire Law Group, we understand just how distressing it can be to have your child injured in an accident and then have to wonder if they'll get just compensation. Not to worry, we've helped countless clients in similar situations and may be able to help you as well.

  • How can I help my loved ones cope with a relative's wrongful death?

    An Adult Struggling With a Wrongful Death in the FamilyLosing a loved one is never easy, but when the death of someone you care about was caused by another person or entity's negligence, the loss can be particularly difficult to process. If someone in your family was a wrongful death victim, healing emotionally—and financially—can take time. Fortunately, these tips can help:

    • Make self care a priority. Grief can be overwhelming and all consuming, which is why it's so important to make time to care for yourself after the death of a loved one. Make sure to eat a healthy diet, exercise, get enough rest, and avoid abusing alcohol or drugs.
    • Give yourself room to grieve. The grieving process can involve powerful emotions such as denial, shock, guilt, pain, anger, loneliness, and acceptance. Instead of bottling up feelings, give yourself the time and space to work through them.
    • Establish a support system. If you're feeling distraught about your loss, remember that you probably aren't the only one in mourning. Reach out to other grieving family members to establish a strong emotional support system.
    • Take things one day at a time. Grieving the loss of a loved one takes time and is filled with frequent ups and downs. There will be good days and bad days. Just keep moving forward.
    • Investigate your family's right to compensation. If your loved one died due to another person or entity's negligence, your family may be entitled to compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, mental anguish, loss of association and other damages. A skilled personal injury attorney can help you determine if you have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
