Have you been involved in a car accident?

In the event of a traffic accident, it’s common to feel disoriented, potentially leading to inadvertent errors due to uncertainty about the appropriate course of action. These errors can sometimes have grave consequences, both legally and practically. Familiarizing oneself with what actions to avoid and what actions are imperative at the scene of an accident is crucial.

  1. Leaving the accident scene. This could be misconstrued as a hit-and-run incident.
  2. Admitting fault or offering apologies. Making apologies or admitting fault without a comprehensive understanding of the circumstances, either factually or legally, can significantly impede subsequent legal proceedings.
  3. Signing documents. Similarly, signing documents requested by the other party without a full grasp of the situation and lacking legal expertise is highly ill-advised.

Encountering a traffic accident can be daunting and overwhelming. In the immediate aftermath of such an incident, it may be challenging to discern the appropriate actions to take. Whenever feasible, seeking guidance from a trusted traffic accident attorney directly from the accident scene is advisable. Failing that, it is recommended to have readily available a set of crucial measures to protect one's rights.

  • Remain at the scene and endeavor to maintain composure.
  • Activate hazard lights to alert other motorists.
  • Safely maneuver vehicles to the roadside or a less congested area.
  • Assess injuries sustained by yourself, other drivers, and passengers.
  • If medical attention is warranted, promptly summon emergency services.
  • In cases of severe accidents resulting in injuries, fatalities, or substantial property damage, promptly notify law enforcement.
  • Utilize your mobile device to capture photographic evidence, including vehicle damage, license plates, and the accident surroundings.
  • Exchange pertinent information with the other driver, including contact details, insurance information, and vehicle registration.
  • Secure contact information from any witnesses present, refraining from divulging personal details.
  • Thoroughly document the circumstances of the accident.

Even in instances devoid of injuries, notifying law enforcement and meticulously documenting the incident is advisable. While the reporting can be postponed, immediate action is preferred to ensure the accuracy of accident scene details. Upon the arrival of law enforcement personnel, record the officer's badge number in anticipation of potential follow-up actions regarding the accident.

Following departure from the accident scene, additional measures are essential to safeguard one's rights and seek redress for any damages incurred. Ideally, these matters should be entrusted to a proficient traffic accident attorney. However, if legal representation has not been secured, consider the following steps:

  • Promptly inform your auto insurance provider of the incident.
  • Obtain copies of accident reports filed by law enforcement or other involved parties.
  • Detail injuries sustained, both physical and psychological.
  • Maintain a comprehensive record of medical treatments and providers.
  • Assess property damage; your insurance carrier may dispatch an appraiser or adjuster to facilitate this process.
  • Prior to providing a statement to the other driver or insurance adjuster, seek guidance from a personal injury attorney specializing in such matters to protect your legal rights.

A seasoned traffic accident attorney will offer legal counsel aimed at mitigating your liabilities, including advisement on providing recorded statements, negotiating with the driver's insurance company for full compensation of losses, and managing scenarios involving uninsured or underinsured motorists, as well as navigating intricate injury claim procedures.

Juggling the aftermath of a traffic accident amidst the demands of everyday life can be overwhelming. Typically, insurance companies seek guidance on claims processing and prefer swift settlements. However, exercising caution when considering early settlement offers is advisable. Insurers often aim to settle before the retention of a proficient attorney. Reach out to a local personal injury attorney today to explore avenues for maximizing potential compensation. Attorney Jimmie W. Kang specializes in traffic accidents and extends services to most areas in Southern California, including LA, San Bernardino, Riverside County, and Orange County.

LA's congested and expansive highways witness various car accidents daily. In 2022, over 4,047 deaths occurred due to car accidents in California, averaging about 11 fatalities per day. These accidents include:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Frontal collisions
  • Side collisions
  • Single-car accidents
  • Multi-vehicle accidents

Each type of accident has unique causes and potential injuries. Rear-end accidents often result in neck fractures due to drivers not paying attention. Frontal collisions, caused by vehicles drifting into oncoming traffic, can lead to delayed pain symptoms from airbag deployment. Side collisions, or T-bone accidents, typically occur at intersections or parking lots, causing significant damage to the vehicle's side. Our firm specializes in representing clients in all these accident types, ensuring they receive comprehensive legal support tailored to their specific circumstances.

Car accidents in LA can result from various factors, including careless driving, speeding, and drunk driving. Distracted driving due to mobile phone use is a significant cause despite laws prohibiting it. Speeding is a major factor in severe collision incidents. Common traffic violations leading to serious accidents include right-of-way violations, illegal maneuvers, and disregarding stop signs and traffic lights. Inclement weather and poor road conditions also contribute significantly to car accidents in LA.

Car accidents in LA can cause a range of injuries, from minor to severe, affecting victims both short-term and long-term. The combination of high speeds on highways and chaotic urban traffic exacerbates the severity and diversity of potential injuries. Common injuries include:

  • Neck injuries and whiplash: Resulting from sudden head and neck movements during an accident, leading to pain and restricted mobility.
  • Fractures: Caused by collision forces, ranging from simple fractures to complex ones requiring surgery.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): Ranging from mild concussions to severe brain injuries affecting cognitive and physical functions.
  • Burns and lacerations: Resulting from impact with sharp objects, broken glass, or the force of impact, sometimes leading to severe bleeding or cosmetic issues.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Causing temporary or permanent changes in sensation, movement, and other functions below the injury site.
  • Internal injuries: Including internal organ damage and internal bleeding, which can be life-threatening if not treated immediately.

In addition to physical injuries, car accidents can also result in wrongful death, leaving families to cope with the loss of loved ones. Legal support is crucial for navigating the aftermath of car accidents, whether dealing with recoverable injuries or the serious implications of wrongful death.

Negligence is a fundamental concept in personal injury law, referring to behavior that falls below the standard of care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in similar circumstances. This applies to actions taken or not taken, resulting in unintended harm or injury. Proving negligence is crucial for a successful car accident claim in LA.

Gross Negligence

Gross negligence involves a conscious and voluntary disregard for the need to exercise reasonable care, resulting in foreseeable serious harm. Identifying gross negligence is important as it can impact penalties and compensation types. If proven, punitive damages may be awarded in addition to compensatory damages. Understanding these concepts is essential for anyone pursuing justice in LA car accident cases. Consulting with a specialized car accident attorney is highly recommended.

Determining fault in LA car accidents involves proving fault through:

  1. Duty of Care: Legal obligation for the driver to drive safely and adhere to traffic laws.
  2. Breach of Duty: Proving the driver failed to fulfill this duty through negligence or reckless behavior.
  3. Causation: Establishing that the breach was the direct cause of the accident.
  4. Damages Due to Violation: Demonstrating injuries, property damage, or other losses resulting from the accident.

Experienced LA car accident attorneys conduct thorough investigations, reconstruct accident scenes, and gather evidence such as police reports, photographs, videos, and witness statements to prove fault.

In California car accident cases, the "duty of care" requires individuals to exercise reasonable care to avoid causing harm to others. This duty is specified in California Civil Code Section 1714(a). Courts consider various factors to determine the existence of duty of care, including foreseeability of harm and policies to prevent future harm.

Breach of duty occurs when someone fails to adhere to established standards of care. In court, breaches are proven through expert testimony, accident reconstruction, and demonstrating unreasonable actions under the circumstances. Common examples include distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, tailgating, and aggressive driving.

California follows comparative fault principles, meaning multiple parties can be held responsible for causing a car accident in LA. Compensation for damages is divided based on fault percentages. Therefore, thorough investigation and insights into car accident claims and comparative fault laws are crucial. Jimmie W. Kang, with over 20 years of experience, ensures clients receive the maximum compensation they deserve.

Car accident victims in LA are entitled to various forms of financial compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Attorneys meticulously examine evidence to establish the full extent and severity of economic losses.

Economic Damages

Economic damages include immediate and long-term medical costs, lost wages, vehicle repair or replacement costs, and out-of-pocket expenses. California does not impose a cap on economic damages, allowing victims to fully recover documented financial losses.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish, scarring, loss of enjoyment of life, and diminished quality of life. These damages are often calculated using multiplier methods or per diem methods based on the severity of pain and suffering.

Punitive Damages

In rare cases classified as malicious, punitive damages may be awarded. California permits punitive damages for intentional and callous acts where the defendant acted recklessly. The amount varies based on blameworthiness, defendant's conduct, and financial status. In wrongful death cases, punitive damages are limited unless the defendant has been convicted of a felony.

The statute of limitations for filing personal injury lawsuits, including car accident cases, in California is two years from the date of injury. For wrongful death lawsuits, it begins on the date of death. Vehicle damage claims have a three-year statute of limitations from the accident date. Failure to file within these limits typically results in case dismissal.

Legal proceedings for car accident cases consist of several stages, including settlement discussions, mediation, litigation, discovery, and trial. The duration varies based on factors such as injury severity, fault clarity, and willingness to reach agreements. Understanding this timeline helps set realistic expectations and prepare for the legal journey. Patience and skilled attorney guidance are invaluable assets.

If you're involved in a car accident in LA with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you can seek compensation through uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage if purchased. California requires auto insurance companies to offer this coverage. Even without it, you may still be eligible for compensation.

Our office provides comprehensive case handling on a contingency fee basis, ensuring accessibility for those in need of service. If you don't win, you don't pay separate attorney fees.

Mr. Kang handled my car accident case, and I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney or a better outcome. I was scared at first as it was my first auto accident and I had no knowledge in dealing with it. But he took care of everything so quickly and efficiently, making the entire process extremely easy and stress-free for me. He was very prompt and thorough in his work while making himself available to readily and thoughtfully respond, explain things in a way I can easily understand, and offer valuable advice. I learned a lot through this process and very much appreciate Mr. Kang and his team (also very helpful and knowledgeable!) for providing me a satisfying result. Anyone who has worked with Mr. Kang would agree. He is competent, reliable, caring, and most importantly, he gets things done. I trust him fully and feel very comfortable recommending him to anyone in need. You will be in good hands with Jimmie Kang.

"Got rear-ended on the freeway but the hitter had a very limited liability insurance to cover for all the damages the accident caused. David from Jimmy Kang's office went above and beyond to get compensated. I am very pleased with the hard work and dedication to their profession. I would and will recommend these hard working people to anyone who's in need of professional legal service team."

A co worker of mine recommended Jimmie after an unfortunate accident, and I am so glad he did. Jimmie took care of everything, and his employees were quick to set me up with a chiropractor. It is so nice knowing that he has your best interests in mind, you really have nothing to worry about. I have referred him to all my friends and co-workers and they have had just as amazing experiences with him as I did. If you want piece of mind, definitely give Jimmie a call.
