Get All the Required Car Accident Information

The success of your claim partially depends on your ability to convince the insurance company that the opposing party was at fault and your injuries occurred as a result. The following is a list of items and details you need to maximize payout.

 

  • Driver’s License Information: Details of the other party’s drive license including the other driver’s name, address, phone number, and license plate number. Taking a picture of the license or writing down the details are both sufficient as long as all information is documented.
  • Insurance Policy: Details of the other party’s car insurance policy.Pictures of the Scene: Take pictures of the scene after the accident. This includes taking picture of the location of the accident, pictures of the damaged cars, and any other specific pictures which help describe the accident.
  • Accident Details: Details of the accident such as how and where the accident occurred. Description of how the accident occurred such include a timeline of events such as which lanes both drivers were in, the approximate speed, and the reason for the accident.
  • Police Report: A police report is an official representation of a car accident according to the testimony of the accident victims. Documented language proving a party’s guilt will be documented in the police report. Should you be asked a question by a police officer that you ate unaware of or uncomfortable answering inform the officer you do not no.
  • Witnesses: In the event witnesses saw the accident ask them if they could verify the sequence of events. If they accept your request ask the witness for their contact information. Once you get their contact information, our team of lawyers will contact the witness and get them to sign a witness report to increase the validity of the claim.

The Importance of Timing in a Car Accident Case

Personal injury studies have shown that cases initiated earlier have a higher chance of closing in a faster period of time.

Although the legal system permits accident victims two years based on the statute of limitations, the legal system favors cases resolved in a short period of time. In personal injury cases, the statute of limitations period begins the day of the accident or the day a party of the accident dies.

Why Timing is So Important in Personal Injury Cases

The initial period after an accident is the most important. This is because during this period the insurer and adjusters become aware of the accident. Should time lapse following the accident and the initiation of the claim, many parties of the insurance company forget major details of the case and overall do not put as much effort as needed.

Furthermore, a lapse in time in the case may result in lost evidence, misplaced documents, and other potentially catastrophic events that can alter the outcome of a case.

Consult with CA Personal Injury Group as soon as possible to settle your case.

How Car Accident Damages are Determined

Car accident cases are determined on a variety of factors based on the extent of damages and injuries. The settlement amount for the car accident is based on two major factors:

  • Economic Damages
  • Non-economic Damages

Economic Damages

Damages that can be calculated with numbers and figures are referred to as economic damages. An economic damage can be clearly defined with a price tag or cost of repair. Such examples include the monetary cost of repairing the car, lost current and future wage losses, and others.

Non Economic Damages

Damages that do not have a definitive price tag are referred to as non economic damages. Common examples are the cost of pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of happiness. The majority of the money accident victims retain from an accident settlement results from non economic damages.
