Every year, there are millions of car accidents across the nation. While some of these accidents are due to forces beyond everyone’s control, more often than not, human factors are to blame. From driving mistakes to faulty brakes, the vast majority of car accidents could be avoided if only people exercised a little bit more care.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car accident in Los Angeles or the Southern California area, it is important to make sure that the parties responsible are held accountable for your losses. From future medical expenses to chronic emotional trauma, these losses could impact your life for years, if not decades, to come. If you do nothing – or if you let the insurance companies determine your rights – you will not receive just compensation, and you will be forced to shoulder the financial and emotional burden of someone else’s wrongdoing.
Accident Attorneys Who Fight for Maximum Compensation
At the Law Offices of John Stenson, I do not want this to happen to you. I understand the devastating and long-term impacts of traumatic car accidents, and I believe in securing justice for those who have suffered due to others’ careless mistakes. the law governing car accidents is clear: If someone else is to blame for your injuries or your loved one’s death, you are entitled to financial compensation for your accident-related losses. This includes not only financial losses such as medical expenses and lost income, but pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement, loss of support and companionship, and other non-financial losses as well.
Isn’t this why we have auto insurance? Yes and no. While it is true that auto insurance provides a crucial source of compensation for car accident victims, it is also true that the insurance companies don’t like to pay – even when it is clear that payment is owed. In a typical case, the insurance companies will point fingers at one another, delay payment, offer low-ball settlements and use a variety of other tactics to pay as little as possible. If you do not aggressively pursue your right to compensation, you will lose out, and you will feel the pain of the accident long after you were supposed to have collected just compensation.
