Auto & Car Accidents: When Death or Serious Injury Result
San Bernardino County and Rancho Cucamonga car accident deaths and injuries are on the rise, according to recent data. While many deaths and serious injuries can be attributed to drug and alcohol use, many more are simply accidents. Though even the most careful drivers can find themselves susceptible to live-changing accidents, when accidents happen, it can be reassuring to understand what your legal rights are as a victim of a car accident. In most cases, even if the accident was partially your fault, you may, nonetheless, be entitled to compensation.
Death is not the only catastrophic outcome from an accident. Catastrophic injuries have a lasting effect on your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Depending on the nature of the injuries, catastrophic accidents may leave their victims paralyzed, immobile, or in need of around-the-clock care for a long-term period– sometimes for the duration of the victim’s life. The victim may no longer be able to work, provide for their families, perform daily tasks, or enjoy life the way they did before. While this is a devastating outcome, having the financial means to sustain care for serious injuries is nearly impossible for many families, even with the aid of insurance. If you have been catastrophically injured, you may need additional monetary support to sustain your life and daily activities. A successful lawsuit may provide pain and suffering damages, as well as monetary payments of past medical bills, future medical bills, and future personal care. The compensation you are entitled to depends on the nature of the accident, injury, and the longevity of the injuries that were sustained.
According to the National Safety Council, odds of death resulting from a motor vehicle accident is 112:1. Compare this to death resulting from heart disease and cancer, the primary causes of death in the United States (1:7). If you or a loved one dies as a result of a car accident, there are innumerable considerations. Beyond losing someone you love, their affection, and their company, you may be faced with substantial medical bills, funeral expenses, and end-of-life treatments. The decedent may have been the breadwinner for your family, leaving you in dire financial circumstances all while coping with a great loss. The last thing you want to think about at a time like this is money. Let an experienced personal injury law firm advocate on your family member’s behalf to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve for the loss of your loved one to ensure that your financial status is one less concern.

I was a passenger in an extremely horrible car accident involving multiple cars and a semi-truck. I sustained the worst injuries out of all the parties involved. I hired Mr. King to represent me for the duration of my case, which was 3 years. During this time, I felt I had made the correct choice in choosing Mr. King to represent me.
