Southern California Auto Accident Lawyer

An automobile accident can be a fatal or life-changing event. When you’ve suffered catastrophic injuries or lost a member of your family in a highway crash, you face unexpected losses and challenges. You will often have daunting bills for medical care at a time when you may be unable to return to your job; your pain could become chronic and unrelenting from a herniated disc, cervical radiculopathy, or sciatica; in the worst cases, if you’ve suffered paralysis from damage to your spinal cord, you might never walk or live independently again. If you’ve survived an injury to your brain, you might have cognitive deficits that will profoundly affect your ability to work and your relationships with others.

When someone else caused the accident, you are entitled to pursue a claim for compensation against the person whose poor driving or negligent behavior was responsible for your injury. This is best accomplished by retaining an experienced Southern California car accident attorney, who will assist you in your claim for damages.

A good California personal injury lawyer will handle the insurance company and protect your right to an adequate recovery. Research has shown that accident victims with quality legal representation walk away with substantially higher awards to compensate them for their accident damages.

Auto Accident Injuries

Car accident can wreak havoc with your body and mind. These are some of the many injury types for which the attorneys of Escondido’s Liljegren Law Group frequently recover large damage awards for clients:

  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Brain injuries
  • Fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Burns
  • Scarring
  • Psychological trauma, including post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Fighting the Insurance Company

Shortly after a car accident, an insurance adjuster will usually contact you and request a statement and medical authorizations. It is not in your best interests to discuss your accident with the adjuster, and you should not sign any documents or allow the adjuster to record a statement. Insurance companies exist to make profits for their shareholders, and to do this, they must take in significantly more in premiums than they pay out in claims. They will often use any excuse to deny or minimize your claim.

At the Liljegren Law Group, we understand the tactics insurance companies use to attempt to minimize the value of your car accident claim and are skilled at negotiating substantial compensation awards for our personal injury clients, as well as winning substantial jury verdicts. We are deeply committed to pursuing a recovery that adequately compensates you for all of your economic and non-economic losses:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost earnings
  • Household help costs
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish

 When needed, we bring in traffic safety engineers, accident reconstruction experts, accountants, and medical professionals to help us establish liability and document the value of your damages.
