How Can a Fresno Car Accident Lawyer Help You?

A lawyer is an essential ally when you’ve been injured in a collision. An experienced attorney can help protect your rights and support your case for recovery. 

Here’s how the team at Goldenzweig Law Group, PLLC can help you after a severe car accident:

  • Identify who can be held liable for your injuries: Depending on the circumstances of the accident, multiple parties might be responsible for your injuries. Our attorneys can search for every potentially liable party and every potential source of insurance coverage.
  • Document your injuries and other losses: To recover full compensation after a car crash, you’ll need to document all the losses you’ve suffered. This may include lost wages, reduced earning potential, medical bills, any pain and mental health effects you’ve experienced, and more.
  • Take care of the necessary paperwork: Many forms are involved in filing a personal injury claim, from medical records to court motions and everything in between. We can handle all this paperwork for you to make sure your claim proceeds as quickly and smoothly as possible.
  • Negotiate with insurance companies: Most car accident claims are settled through negotiations with the liable party’s insurance company. Insurance companies have all kinds of tricks to avoid paying the total value of a claim, but a lawyer can help you make a strong case for compensation.
  • Bring your case to court: If you cannot reach a settlement agreement with the liable party, you may need to bring your case to civil court. If this happens, you’ll want help from an experienced trial attorney who can craft a sound legal strategy.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Some common causes of car accidents include:

  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Aggressive lane changes
  • Following too closely
  • Failing to yield at an intersection or stop sign
  • Worn or defective components
  • Poor road conditions

Common Types of Car Accidents

There are many kinds of car accidents, and some of the more common types include:

  • Head-on collisions: A head-on collision is when two or more vehicles traveling in opposite directions run into each other. Because these accidents tend to involve high speeds, they often resulting in severe injuries.
  • Rear-end collisions: Rear-end collisions occur when one vehicle runs into the back of a car traveling in front of it. Rear-end collisions are often caused by the driver in the rear following too closely.
  • Sideswipe/side-impact collisions: Sideswipe accidents, also known as side-impact accidents, happen when two vehicles traveling in the same or opposite direction collide. Side-impact collisions are frequently the result of one driver failing to check their blind spot or signal correctly when changing lanes or merging.
  • T-bone collisions: T-bone or broadside accidents result from one vehicle slamming into another car. The shape the two cars form when they collide resembles a “T,” hence the name.
  • Blind-spot collisions: When drivers don’t check their blind spots before merging or changing lanes, they can easily end up crashing into or moving into the path of another vehicle.
  • Rollover collisions: Tire blowouts, shifting cargo, high-speed impacts, and other factors can cause a car to tip or rollover, which often leads to horrific injuries for anyone in the vehicle.
  • Single-vehicle collisions: Drivers can sometimes get into an accident even if there are no other vehicles involved. For example, a driver might drive their car off the road and strike an object or roll the vehicle over without hitting anything first.
  • Multi-vehicle collisions: Many accidents are multi-vehicle crashes. The more vehicles are involved in a crash, the greater the odds are of someone suffering severe injuries.

Common Types of Car Accident Injuries

Some of the most common injuries that result from car accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Soft-tissue damage
  • Internal organ damage
  • Burns
  • Crushed or amputated limbs
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord damage and paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Lacerations

Statute of Limitations on Car Accident Lawsuits in Texas

The Texas statute of limitations on car accident lawsuits is generally two years from the date of the crash. If you do not file a lawsuit by that time, you will most likely lose your opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries.

What to Do If You’ve Been Hurt in a Crash

Here are the key steps to take if you’ve been injured in a car accident:

  • Call 911 and seek medical treatment as soon as possible
  • Take pictures and videos of the accident scene before you leave, if possible
  • Get the names of any eyewitnesses
  • Hold on to any documentation related to the accident and your losses, such as medical records, pay stubs, and the police accident report
  • Don’t talk to the at-fault party’s insurance adjuster until you’ve spoken to a lawyer
