Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyer

California’s beautiful and open roads draw tourists from around the country to experience the dream-like landscape, but these roads can quickly turn into someone’s worst nightmare if a driver is acting negligently. Unfortunately, the bustling Los Angeles streets are some of the most dangerous in the country, and many individuals have found themselves injured in car accidents while traversing the beautiful city. These accidents are traumatic for everyone involved, even in minor cases, and highly costly, with some crashes leaving the victims with significant financial burdens through their many expenses. All the consequences can add up to become more stressful than the accident itself, but why should you be forced to foot the bill for an accident you didn’t cause?

You’ll likely file a claim with your insurance provider to exercise your contract and collect your rightful benefits. However, there have been cases of unethical insurance companies who purposefully diminish or deny their client’s benefits for their own financial gain, essentially stealing their compensation during one of the worst moments of their lives. The organizations that behave this way care little about your situation and will capitalize on your vulnerability, but with the help of an experienced car accident lawyer, you can protect yourself from their tactics and fight for the compensation you paid into your contract to receive. 

Morgan & Morgan’s Los Angeles office is staffed with attorneys who go the extra mile for the clients who depend on them. They understand that your life can drastically change without your rightful restitution, so we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to help our clients find success in their legal challenges. Some car accidents will require the victim to sue the at-fault party, and if you have no prior experience, it’s easy to make a mistake, one that could potentially cost you thousands in compensation. Our attorneys are well versed in all aspects of car accident litigation, allowing them to help you navigate towards the best possible outcome in your case.

If you or someone close to you was injured in a car accident, we want to help you navigate through the legal process and get back to your normal life. Contact us today for more information on how to get started.

Morgan & Morgan FAQs

  • What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

    The most important thing after any accident is your health and wellbeing, so you should try and move yourself to safety if you’re able to do so. Even minor accidents can result in major injuries, and all car accident victims are recommended to seek medical attention as soon as they can. Despite its cost, medical care is necessary after an accident, as you may have sustained internal injuries that can cause you serious pain down the line. For example, some accident victims walk away from the scene with internal bleeding, which can be potentially life-threatening if left unchecked. By seeking medical treatment sooner rather than later, you’re taking a proactive step towards your health and wellbeing, one that may just save your life.

    You’ll have a good understanding of your total expenses after you’ve received medical treatment. By totaling your medical bills, repair costs, and other expenses, you’ll find the number you’ll eventually seek for recovery through either an insurance plan or a lawsuit. However, before you can start down any of those paths, you should first ensure that you’ve maintained accurate and complete records of all the previously mentioned expenses, as this will make the process much easier for you when it comes time to negotiate a settlement.

  • Do I Need an Attorney for a Car Accident?

    While it’s never required for anyone to retain an attorney, their involvement can offer some critical benefits that can help increase your chances of recovering damages. Whether you’re filing an insurance claim or beginning to file a lawsuit, there’s a sizable amount of complicated paperwork that would confuse anyone other than an attorney, not to mention the need to prove fault in a lawsuit, which is equally if not more challenging to pull off. Having an attorney by your side guarantees that all the accurate information is sent to the court on time, ensuring that everything included is correct, complete, and in your best interests. 

    An attorney can also protect you from a third party’s attempt to diminish or deny your rightful compensation. Some insurance providers will see someone without an attorney as weak, even if they aren’t, and attempt to use shady business tactics to bully them into accepting a lower settlement. They know they can get away with it because they, unfortunately, have before, and those who choose to proceed through their car accident legal process without an attorney are potentially giving these organizations an opportunity to do it again. Rather than gamble with your future, you can set yourself up for success starting from the beginning of your case by hiring an experienced attorney. 

    Unethical insurance providers, negligent drivers that refuse to settle, or a misunderstanding within your documentation can all prevent you from recovering what’s yours, but with an attorney by your side, you can navigate around these roadblocks toward your ultimate goal: rightful compensation. Fortunately for you, our Los Angeles office is staffed with some of the best in the business, and we’re only a phone call away.

  • What Can a Car Accident Lawyer Do for Me?

    Car accident attorneys exist to help you mitigate the financial burden of an unforeseen car accident. Whether you just need advice or you need help with the legal process of your accident, an attorney will have an answer for you, and they’ll be able to put you on the path towards the best possible chance of success. Our attorneys have a proven track record of reaching successful verdicts for our clients, often resulting in millions of dollars even in cases of minor accidents. Once we receive your call, our team will:

    • Investigate your case and determine your eligibility for a lawsuit: First, our attorneys will examine the circumstances surrounding your case and determine whether you’d benefit from a lawsuit or not. If it’s determined that you qualify for a lawsuit, our team will begin to establish a foundation to move forward.
    • Gather evidence and all other pertinent information: We’ll begin to collect all the evidence surrounding your case, including police reports, eyewitness testimony, photo/video of the accident itself, and more to ensure we’ve left no stone unturned. Additionally, our attorneys work closely with respected subject-matter experts from around the state, and we can enlist them on your behalf to further strengthen your case and increase our chances of success.
    • Negotiate with the at-fault party: Once we’ve gathered all the available evidence and information surrounding your case, we’ll bring our findings to the negotiation table and attempt to reach a settlement. We’ll display your damages, argue for the severity of each, and establish a dollar amount that will total as your fair and full settlement. The at-fault party can accept our terms and pay your settlement, or they’ll disagree with our findings and refuse to settle. If we find ourselves in this situation, we’ll have to move your case into the courtroom to recover what you’re entitled to.
    • Prepare for trial: It’s possible that no agreement can be reached, and the issue will have to be resolved in the courtroom. Other firms fear this possibility, as they don’t have the resources to afford an expensive trial, but our attorneys relish the opportunity. We build our cases up for the possibility of trial starting from the beginning of your case, allowing us to stay one step ahead of the opposing party and give ourselves the best odds.

    We’re here for you every step of the way. Our attorneys are backed by the resources of America’s largest personal injury firm, allowing them to help anyone who finds themselves as a victim of a car accident.

  • What Can I Expect to Recover?

    While the specific details of your recovery will depend on the circumstances surrounding your case, most car accident victims can expect to recover the damages they sustained in their accident, including:

    • Medical expenses: As medical costs rise globally, more and more accident victims are left with overwhelming financial burdens after they’ve received medical care. In fact, medical treatment is almost impossible to afford from our own pocket unless you’re independently wealthy, which has forced many families into changing their way of life to handle their burden. However, there is hope, as you can potentially recover compensation for all your medical expenses through your lawsuit. Surgeries, ambulatory services, medications, and therapies are all commonly recovered damages in car accident lawsuits, but you can also seek other medical expenses for recovery if they apply to your situation. 
    • Repair costs: Even minor accidents can result in thousands of dollars in property damage, with more severe wrecks potentially totaling your vehicle. California does allow you to seek your repair costs for recovery through your lawsuit, so you should be sure to speak with your attorney about recovering this type of damage.
    • Lost wages: Some accidents leave their victims with injuries that prevent them from working and earning a paycheck. With so many expenses looming overhead, you can afford not to work, but you could recover lost wage benefits through your lawsuit to hold you over while you recover. This is usually a percentage of your weekly income, and you should maintain accurate income records at all times to stay prepared for a situation like this.
    • Pain and suffering: The pain that you’ve experienced and the suffering you’ve endured wouldn’t have occurred if the at-fault party had acted rationally leading up to the accident. Your suffering isn’t your burden to bear, as their actions directly caused them, so your attorney can seek to recover pain and suffering damages through your lawsuit. However, this type of damage is difficult to advocate for the severity of because the majority of the damage is internal. A third party won’t be able to look across the table and understand the significance of your pain, which has resulted in some accident victims recovering lower settlements. You should make sure your attorney is proficient in recovering these damages before you’ve retained them, as this can avoid a serious headache down the line. 
    • Emotional/mental damage: In some cases, car accident victims walk away from their wreck with significant emotional and mental damage. Although they might not notice initially, their condition can quickly worsen and cause them significant suffering, which is unacceptable considering the accident wasn’t their fault. Your attorney can advocate for the severity of your emotional and mental pain, allowing you to recover the fullest extent of the compensation you’re owed.
    • Funeral damages: The loss of a loved one is something that will take time to recover from, especially if their life was lost in an accident that could have been prevented. The surviving family members are eligible to recover compensation for the funeral service, burial, and all other associated costs.

    California law allows you to sue for injuries within six months of the date of the crash. Property damage lawsuits can be filed within three years of the crash as well, but it’s better to file sooner rather than later for both of these options. Choosing to wait to file can prevent you from recovering the necessary evidence for success, making it much more difficult for you to recover what you deserve. Our attorneys are here to help you starting from the beginning of your case, and we’ll stay on top of all the statutes of limitations, so you don’t have to.

  • Can I Afford an Attorney?

    You may have heard the stigma that lawyers are costly to retain and are eventually more expensive than the accident itself. Unfortunately, this is true for some firms, but the organizations who further this prejudice often make their profits solely from their client’s legal fees. They know that they can’t consistently win trials and recover settlements for the clients who walk through their doors, so instead, they’ll worsen their financial burden with steep legal fees to make a quick profit off of them. At the end of the day, these organizations are hurting the ones they’re supposed to protect and making a bad name for the rest of us while they’re at it. 

    At Morgan & Morgan, we chose to take the path less traveled and find a contingency that benefits everyone. Rather than burden you with legal fees, we take our fee from the favorable settlement or jury award to allow anyone the ability to afford skilled representation during their time of need, regardless of their financial status. You never pay out-of-pocket costs when you team up with Morgan & Morgan, nor do you have to worry about the organization that’s supposed to protect you taking advantage of your situation. If you don’t find success in your legal challenge, we aren’t paid either, so we do whatever it takes to help our clients reach the best possible outcome in their case for both our sakes. 

  • Why Choose Morgan & Morgan?

    There are hundreds of law firms online, but how do you know which one will give you the best possible chance of success? You’ll want to do your due diligence in selecting your attorney, as hiring the wrong one can make the difference between recovering your full settlement or paying for your accident out of pocket. In fact, Morgan & Morgan was founded after John Morgan hired the wrong lawyer for his brother, Tim, embarking on a journey of legal challenges and frustration. The lawyer they chose rarely had Tim’s interests in mind and left the Morgan family feeling defeated after all was said and done, which prompted John Morgan to start our firm, where no one will ever have to endure the experience they went through. To us, you’re Tim, and you’re family for life. 

    Since our inception over three decades ago, we’ve helped thousands of clients escape from the consequences of unforeseen accidents and recover the compensation they need to get back on their feet. Our success has earned us the title of America’s largest personal injury firm, but we’ve never let our size subtract from the aspects of our firm that made us who we are today. We offer a best-of-both-worlds type approach for all our clients, the resources of a corporate giant with the relationships of a small firm, to allow our clients the ability to never settle on their law firm. Speaking of that, our attorneys are taught to never settle for less than any of our clients deserve, which often results in multi-million dollar settlements even when the odds seem bleak.

    In the most difficult moments of your life, our Los Angeles office has your back. There may be a hundred—maybe a thousand—other law firms online, but there’s only one Morgan & Morgan. Our settlements and verdicts speak for themselves, as many other firms can only dream of the results we achieve. Not only that, but our reputation of relentlessly advocating for our clients has reached insurance companies from around the nation, showing them that any client who teams up with us is not to be messed with. No organization wants to see that you’ve teamed up with Morgan & Morgan because they know they can’t offer lowball or diminished settlements. If they do, we can see them in court, and our attorneys are all well-versed at litigating in any setting, especially a courtroom.

    Car accidents can bring your way of life to a screeching halt in mere moments, leaving you to pick up the pieces on your own. Without proper compensation, you’ll be forced to pay for the consequences of your accident out of your own pocket, which is especially unfair considering the accident wasn’t your fault. Negligent drivers ruin people’s lives every day, but that doesn’t mean that you have to join that statistic. By teaming up with one of our car accident lawyers, you can protect yourself from the financial burden of your accident and set yourself up for the best possible outcome starting from day one. 

    The last thing you want to deal with after a traumatic accident is an apathetic insurance company. In some cases, car accident victims have been forced into accepting diminished settlements because they’re unable to defend themselves from an unethical insurance company’s shady business tactics. Not only does this extend their recovery, but it also forces these victims to seek alternate methods to pay off their car accident expenses, which may require a significant change in their way of life. Our attorneys understand how important it is to receive your full and fair compensation amount, which is why we’ll fight tirelessly for every cent you deserve, regardless of the size or influence of the organization on the other side of the table.

    If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, our Los Angeles office is here to help. With over 1,000+ trial-ready attorneys, a network of team members across the country, and resources that other firms can only dream of, Morgan & Morgan is uniquely capable of handling any car accident lawsuit for any victim. We have what it takes, and we’re waiting for your call.
