Common Car Accident Injuries We Help Clients With

Our team handles a wide range of injuries sustained by Aliso Viejo car accident victims. This includes, but is not limited to, the following types of injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Facial injuries or head injuries
  • Spinal cord trauma with paralysis
  • Amputations or crush injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Fractured or dislocated bones
  • Severe sprains or strains
  • Lacerations and puncture wounds

In addition to the traumatic injuries sustained by car accident victims, we must also acknowledge the more unseen physical pain and suffering and psychological effects of the incident. Our goal is to help clients recover compensation for every injury they sustain, including the visible injuries and the less visible internal traumas and damage.

How do We Determine Liability for an Aliso Viejo Car Accident?

Determining fault after a vehicle accident in Aliso Viejo can be challenging and revolves around gathering as much evidence as possible. There is usually a good bit of evidence that is gathered at the scene of the incident. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Photographs taken by those at the scene
  • Video surveillance from nearby cameras
  • Statements taken from eyewitnesses
  • The police or accident report

In the days and weeks following a vehicle accident, there may be additional evidence used to help determine liability. This can include vehicle data recording devices, mobile device data, additional surveillance footage, the outcome of any charges related to the crash, and more.

A skilled vehicle accident lawyer will examine the evidence and work to piece together the overall picture of what happened. An attorney needs to show that the at-fault driver breached their duty of care to the injury victim and that this breach of duty led to injuries and monetary losses.

Types of Compensation Available After the Crash

At Callahan & Blaine, our goal is to recover both economic and non-economic damages on behalf of the clients that we assess.

Economic losses associated with a vehicle accident revolve around calculable expenses the victim will endure. Our team will gather receipts and bills that come in and work to calculate:

  • The emergency medical expenses
  • Any ongoing medical needs the victim has
  • Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity
  • Various household out-of-pocket expenses
  • Property damage expenses

Non-economic damages associated with an Aliso Viejo vehicle accident involve expenses that are not as easily calculable by using receipts and bills. These types of losses are designed to help individuals recover from their physical and emotional pain and suffering as well as any loss of quality of life they endure.

The total amount of compensation paid to personal injury and vehicle accident victims in Aliso Viejo will vary depending on the circumstances surrounding each particular claim. Our team will work with trusted medical and economic professionals to adequately calculate all current and expected expenses resulting from the vehicle accident.

How Long Do You Have to File a Car Accident Claim?

Individuals in Aliso Viejo have a limited amount of time to file these claims in court. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date an injury occurs. Failing to file a lawsuit within this time frame will likely result in the injury victim becoming unable to recover the compensation they need.

Additionally, insurance carriers involved in the case will have reporting deadlines. Failing to report a crash to a vehicle insurance carrier within a day or so after the incident could harm the claim.

When you work with a skilled Aliso Viejo car accident lawyer, you will have an advocate ready to handle every aspect of your claim, including ensuring the case gets filed on time with the insurance carriers and at the civil court level if a lawsuit becomes necessary.

How Much Does a Car Accident Lawyer Cost in Aliso Viejo?

Our team handles Aliso Viejo car accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that clients never have to worry about paying legal fees until after we successfully recover the compensation they are entitled to. We handle all of the upfront and out-of-pocket costs related to the case. In the event we are unable to secure compensation for a client, they will pay absolutely no legal fees at all.

Our goal is to ensure that clients, regardless of their current financial status, are able to stand up to alleged negligent parties to recover the compensation they need.
