Determining the right course of action after being involved in an auto accident can be an incredibly daunting and difficult task. That’s why you should consider speaking with a San Francisco auto accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Scott Righthand. If another party’s negligence caused your auto accident, we can help educate you on your rights and legal options surrounding how you can seek compensation. 

How You Can Adequately Protect Your Legal Rights After An Auto Accident

Should you have been involved in a car accident, it’s crucial you protect your rights if you hope to obtain compensation. To do this, you need to follow a few general guidelines that we have briefly spoken of below. 

  • You need to call 911 and immediately seek medical care after an auto accident, even if you feel you have not sustained injuries. Often, you could realize that you were injured at a later time or date, which could negatively affect your case. Additional seeking medical care will ensure your injuries are documented, which will help when you file a claim.
  • If you can, you need to take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage that occurred. 
  • You must obtain copies of receipts, medical bills, and lost wage pay statements, as you will need to prove that your injuries caused you to seek compensation. 
  • It’s crucial you obtain the accident report when initiating a claim against a negligent party. Often a lawyer can obtain this official documentation on your behalf. 
  • When discussing your accident with insurance adjusters or lawyers that are not your own, never admit fault. Insurance companies and opposing counsel lawyers will try to take advantage and get you to admit to being at fault so that you receive an unfair settlement. 

The Different Types Of Auto Accidents

Many different types of vehicle collisions can cause injuries. Below are some common auto accident types seen in the San Francisco area:

  • Single-Car Accident
  • Side-Impact Collision
  • Rear-End Collision
  • Head-On Collision
  • Vehicle Rollover

The Various Damages You Can Recover After An Auto Accident

It’s important that you remember that every auto accident case is different, which means not everyone can claim the same damages. There are, however, a few common types of compensation that can be claimed if you were injured in an auto accident. 

Additionally, you need to remember that you cannot claim damages if you don’t file your claim within the specified time frame according to the California statute of limitations. A lawyer from our firm can help you understand the statute of limitations and determine if you are still eligible to seek compensation for your injuries. 

  • Medical costs including hospital and doctor’s bills, psychological therapy bills, and ambulance bills
  • Lost wages and loss of future earnings 
  • Rehabilitation costs, such as physiotherapy bills
  • Inhabited earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • PTSD
  • Property damage
  • Disability
  • Mental anguish
