Being injured in a Beverly Hills car accident is not an experience anyone likes to think about. However, it’s possible to be involved in an accident even when you are a responsible motorist. You might one day be harmed in a collision resulting from another driver’s negligence.

Quite simply, the more cars there are on the road, the greater the odds that accidents will occur.

COMMON CAUSES OF BEVERLY HILLS CAR AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Car and pedestrian accidents can occur for many reasons in Beverly Hills. Often, they are the result of a motorist’s negligence. Careless drivers can cause accidents if they are:

  • Ignoring or intentionally disobeying traffic signs and signals
  • Distracted, which is becoming an increasingly common cause of motor vehicle accidents throughout the country as more and more drivers operate their motor vehicles with access to smartphones and other such devices
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving while sleep-deprived, which can be as dangerous as drunk driving sometimes
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Not using their headlights in low light conditions
  • Speeding

SEEKING COMPENSATION AFTER A BEVERLY HILLS CAR OR PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT

California uses the fault or tort system in regard to car and pedestrian accident claims. This is the most common system in the United States.

In California, when someone is injured in a car accident resulting from the negligence of another party, they have the right to seek financial compensation for all their losses by filing a claim or lawsuit to collect from the negligent party’s insurance. In rare circumstances when the careless party who causes an accident does not have insurance, a victim may file a claim against the other party and use their own uninsured motorist coverage to recover all of their damages or file a lawsuit and pursue damages in court.

The types of losses one can seek compensation for after being injured in a car and pedestrian accident include (but are not necessarily limited to) the following:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages if injuries prevent a victim from working
  • Noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life

Victims must understand that insurance companies are businesses. No insurance carrier will allow itself to lose money if it is possible to avoid doing so.

When you file a claim after being injured in a Beverly Hills car or pedestrian accident, if you do not have proper legal representation, an insurer will likely attempt to convince you to settle for less than your claim is worth. An insurance adjuster certainly won’t account for all your compensable losses when explaining how much compensation you may be eligible to recover.

This is one of many reasons it is wise to enlist the help of an experienced Beverly Hills car and pedestrian accident law firm with an outstanding reputation and a proven track record in trials and settlements. According to multiple surveys and studies, whenever a personal injury victim files a claim to recover compensation for their losses and damages, their odds of arriving at a fair settlement will be much greater if they have legal representation. Allowing our Beverly Hills car and pedestrian accident attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg to handle your case will also give you more freedom to focus on your recovery.
