Car accidents can result in significant injuries, including bone fractures, concussion, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and facial and body cuts and scars. Car accident victims may be compensated for special and general damages, which are an award of money for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. As such, please preserve all evidence relating to your car accident.
Additionally, car accidents sadly result in fatalities. In fact, approximately three thousand five hundred (3,500) car accident fatalities occur in California each year. If your loved one died in a freeway accident, you may file a wrongful death case. The purpose of these cases is to compensate survivors and deter wrongful conduct. However, in order to recover any damages for your or your loved one’s freeway accident, you must file the lawsuit within two years of the accident.
