Car crashes can lead to all sorts of consequences for victims. You may find yourself with expenses you were not expecting or with injuries you do not know how to deal with. The presence of such debts and damages can be harrowing and troubling, and if you have the ability to correct them or receive compensation for them, you should pursue the correct course of action. Our team of expert San Marcos car accident lawyers
at the Downtown LA Law Group
will gladly work with you to ensure that you are fairly treated and completely covered for your damages. We know that victims often have not taken legal action at any point in their lives, and we are here to make the legal process as painless and easy to understand as possible.
What Are Some Causes Of Car Crashes?
A car accident can happen due to driver error or many other reasons. The different causes that can be blamed can also directly affect the legal action
you can take. For instance, if you were involved in a crash with a drunk driver
, it is in your best interest to sue the driver and his insurance company for compensation from the damages. On the other hand, if you were in a crash because of a street light that was defective and continuously showed the wrong signals
or even dislodged, the city could be held responsible, even if you were hit by another confused driver.
It is recommended that you speak with one of our San Marcos car accident attorneys
to determine what your course of action should be.

We have seen many car accident cases throughout the years and we have filed thousands of lawsuits on the behalf of clients who needed representation. Many car crashes are caused due to the following:
- Drunk driving
- Ignoring stop signs and red lights
- Ignoring right of way laws and courtesies
- Not yielding to pedestrians or oncoming traffic
- Illegal turns
- Driving while tired
- Vehicle defects (brake problems, engine trouble, improperly filled tires)
- Road defects (potholes, sharp turns without warnings, hills that block view, and more)
- Poor weather (rain, snow, fog, sleet, and more that impedes vision)
In some cases, as seen above, the responsibility can fall on another party other than the driver. A road defect must be fixed within a reasonable amount of time by the city, and if the city refuses to do so, it can be sued if there are any accidents.
There are also numerous injuries that can stem from crashes, some of which include:
- Closed head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Torn muscles
- Nerve damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Herniated and slipped discs
- Knee and hip injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Severed limbs and digits
- Crushing injuries
- Puncture wounds
- Abrasions and lacerations
You should not have pay for the expenses relating to your injuries if you were hurt in a car accident. Our team of attorneys will gladly work to bring you the maximum compensation available for your damages and will not stop until we are satisfied with the result.
What Steps Should I Take After A Car Crash?
Often, individuals who are in car crashes will get confused and shaken up
. It is not uncommon to not follow the right procedure or to make an error. Sometimes, though, errors at the scene of the accident can compromise your claim and make you unable to collect your restitution. If you follow these steps, you will have the best chance of success with your claim and you will not run into any dangers. Our attorneys in San Marcos will be glad to walk you through the steps if you need. Feel free to call us for more details.
Firstly, you should go to the hospital or to the doctor to receive ample treatment for your injuries
. You may need emergency treatment, surgery, or some other kind of help. If you do not go to the doctor at once, the insurance agent can claim that you were hurt elsewhere or that you were not as injured as you claim.
In some instances, victims may not want to go to the hospital because they do not feel injured
. This is not uncommon, as adrenaline can mask many damages, and some pains may not manifest at once and can take days to show up.
You should also make sure to document all of your injuries and the damages
that you suffered. If you were hurt, you need photographs of your injuries. You should have pictures of the damage to your car as well as the estimate from the mechanic to repair it. It will also come in handy to have pictures of the scene of the accident.
There may have been eyewitnesses who saw the event happen or passengers in other cars who saw the crash. You can request that these individuals give you statements or testimonies as to what unfolded.

Why Do I Need An Attorney?
If you have been involved in a car accident, you will likely get a plethora of advice about hiring an attorney. In reality, it is generally a good idea to get legal representation if you do not have any legal experience yourself. Our attorneys will be able to negotiate a fair deal for you and you won’t have to worry about the usual pitfalls and issues that come with filing lawsuits.
The insurance agent will look at your injuries and determine how severe they were and how much of an impact they had on your life and career. He will also consider how negligent you were in the accident and if you contributed to it in some way. Once he has done so, the agent will make you an offer.
An attorney will come in handy when countering that offer. Initially, insurance agents will likely make small offers that won’t cover much of anything They will not come up on their offer and will even refuse to take calls or purposely delay your claim so you feel pressured to accept it. You may not have experience negotiating, but our attorneys do, and we will not stop pursuing your rightful pay. We will aggressively work with the insurance agent until we reach a deal that is satisfactory.
Let our car accident attorneys in San Marcos represent you so you do not have to worry about the repercussions of your accident and lawsuit.

What Should I Do If I Already Have An Attorney?
We often receive calls from individuals who already have representation. They may be curious about the worth of their claim or how good of a job their lawyers are doing. We will tell you if we believe your current attorney is acting in good faith or if he is not doing all he can to bring you what you need.
Many attorneys will simply take on numerous cases at a time and give their lowest efforts. They will try to negotiate quick settlements so they can take their own portions and be done. We believe that this greatly harms clients and takes advantage of them; it only benefits the lawyers and the insurance companies.
