I was recently contacted by an local California resident, a young lady, who wanted to know if she had an accident claim and if she needed an experienced Rancho Cucamonga personal injury lawyer for her personal injury claim. She described the circumstances of her car accident. She talked about the injuries she suffered and how she was currently feeling.  She also mentioned that there had been passengers in her car that were also injured. She told me that as she was driving her car on State Highway 18 when a delivery van struck the back side of her car blowing out the window and causing significant damage to the car.  A police report was taken and despite the other party disputing responsibility for the accident, the County of San Bernardino Sheriff in charge of the accident investigation found the other party to be at fault.

After considering the facts of this auto accident and the resulting personal injuries she and her passengers suffered, our Rancho Cucamonga personal injury lawyer analyzed whether or not she had a case. 

What Goes Into a Car Accident Evaluation?

Rancho Cucamonga personal injury lawyer for car accidentWhen we get hurt we evaluate our condition and determine whether we need medical care. If the injury is minor, such as a simple cut or a minor burn, then we would most likely apply some ointment and a band aid and it will most likely heal. There is no need for a doctor to be involved.  However, if the injury is more severe then there is a greater likelihood that the expense and need for treatment by a trained doctor increases.  Now you might treat the injury yourself and that might be alright, but it is more likely there will be greater problems because treatment was not immediately sought. 

The need for an experienced Rancho Cucamonga personal injury lawyer similarly increases with the severity of the injury.  If you get in a low impact car accident and no injuries occured, then the need for an attorney to resolve the issue is quite small.  An exchange of information and a report to an insurance company is enough to get the car fixed and to move on. 

But a freeway accident, or a significant rear-end collision, or a T-bone accident, aka side impact collision between two cars, with life-altering injuries, absolutely requires an experienced Rancho Cucamonga personal injury lawyer.  Personal injuries that require legal counsel might include whiplash, sprain/strain injuries, broken bones, cuts, road rash, spinal cord injuries, and other more serious injuries, including death. 

Did she and her family members need a Rancho Cucamonga personal injury lawyer?  Absolutely.  We helped her and her family recover a proper money settlement for the injuries they suffered.
