There are many different types of vehicles on our roads today. When each vehicle gets in an accident the outcomes will be different. Whether your accident involves a motorcycle, a semi-truck/18-wheeler, public transportation, or a car, AghabiLaw can help.
It should be noted that car accidents are among the most common causes of serious injury and death in the United States. For this reason, insurance claims and car accident lawsuits are among the most commonly handled civil tort cases dealt with by California lawyers every year. While not every accident warrants the involvement of an attorney, car accident cases that have resulted in significant injury or property damage absolutely benefit from the involvement of an experienced attorney as they greatly increase the speed, amount awarded and probability of success.
Car accident victims may experience temporary or permanent disability, large medical bills, lost jobs, or lost wages. There are also often multiple insurance companies involved, sometimes from different providers, who may attempt to deny claims wrongfully.
