How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

After an accident or injury, it may seem easy enough to file a claim for damages. However, California’s laws are complicated and often confusing to those who are struggling to deal with an unanticipated injury. Insurance companies are also tough opposition. A skilled attorney can level the playing field when going up against the big guys.

If you have been injured in a Pasadena accident, get in touch to learn about your legal rights and options. When you make your free, no-commitment call we will:

  • Review the details of your accident,
  • Answer questions you may have, and
  • Explain legal options you may have to recover compensation for your injuries.

We understand that unexpected injuries can trigger stress – both financially and emotionally. To encourage injured parties to seek legal assistance, we offer our services on a contingency-fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless we recover compensation on your behalf.

Pasadena Accidents on the Rise

Pasadena’s gorgeous landscape and popular attractions also make it an accident-prone city. Each year, thousands of injuries are reported in Pasadena. Additionally, a spike in traffic-related accidents in injuries indicates that Pasadena is enjoying life in the wake of the recovering economy that tanked nearly a decade ago. As the economy continues to improve more and more vehicles are on the road. Increased traffic means an increase in accidents and injuries. Experts report an increase in crashes caused by prescription drug use and distracted driving. A study by AAA indicated that 40% of California respondents admitted to checking emails and texts while operating a motor vehicle.

Los Angeles County – home to Pasadena – also sees the highest rate of motorcycle crashes and injuries each year. In fact, Los Angeles County has more than two times as many motorcycle accidents than the next highest county. With more than 1.7 Million daily motor vehicle miles traveled in Pasadena each day, accidents are inevitable. If you or someone you know has been injured in a Pasadena:

  • Car accident,
  • Truck accident, or
  • Motorcycle accident

you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately.

Determining Liability After an Accident

In California, liability can be divided between any parties involved in an accident to the degree to which they were responsible. This is known as pure comparative negligence. It allows injured parties to recover compensation from another party even if they were partially to blame.

For example, if you were speeding and involved in an accident with another driver who was texting while driving, you would both likely found to be partially at-fault. If you are found to be 25% responsible for the accident you would only be permitted to recover 75% of your damages from the other driver.

Similarly, the other driver would be permitted to seek damages from you or your insurance company. But his or her recovery from you would be limited to 25% of his total damages.

Insurance Companies and California Accidents

In many cases, our clients end up seeking compensation from an at-fault party’s insurance company. This can be true for traffic-related cases, slip and fall cases, or premises liability cases. Insurance companies are not in the business of handing out money. When you submit a claim they will do everything in their power to pay as little to you as possible. In many cases, they may deny claims without much – or any – thought.

Your chances of recovering the full amount of compensation you require to recover from your injuries improve significantly when you enlist the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney. Attorneys are trained negotiators and understand the complicated processes involved in pursuing compensation.

The attorneys at Glotzer & Leib, LLP have battled insurance companies for decades. This experience has allowed us to understand the tricks and tactics they employ to minimize payouts to accident victims. We use our experience to help clients negotiate appropriate and meaningful settlements to help get their lives back on track.

How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Claim?

California imposes a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. This window is shorter if the at-fault party is a government entity. In those cases, an administrative claim must be filed within 60 days of the incident.

Even though you generally have two years to file a claim you should start the process as soon as possible after your accident. The at-fault party’s insurance company will begin collecting evidence and building a defense immediately.

Enlisting our personal injury lawyers shortly after an accident can help to ensure you have the time and resources to create a persuasive case. Evidence may disappear and eyewitness memories will fade with time, so it is incredibly important to document and recover these as soon as possible.

Types of Compensation Available After an Accident

If you have been involved in a Pasadena accident you may be able to recover compensation from an at-fault party for your injuries. Compensation is generally broken down into two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are those awarded for verifiable, calculable expenses you incur and may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses,
  • Rehabilitation,
  • Nursing care, and
  • Lost wages.

Non-economic damages are those awarded for injuries that are harder to assign a monetary value. These often include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.

Punitive damages are generally not available in California personal injury lawsuits. There are a few exceptions, such as when an accident is willful or malicious or results in death while executing a felony.

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
