In Southern California, driving is a way of life. Every day, millions of Southern Californians get behind the wheel and operate heavy machinery on their way to work, school, and social engagements. Unfortunately, driving is one of the most dangerous activities we participate in, and auto accidents are an unfortunate reality.
If you or a loved one have suffered personal injury following an accident in which the other driver was at fault, you are likely entitled to compensation.
The first step in any auto case is proving that the driver at fault was behaving negligently. Every driver on the road is expected to maintain a valid license, auto insurance, and to obey the laws of the road.
Additionally, drivers are expected to practice reasonable care, which means avoiding distracted driving. Any driver that fails to meet these expectations may be considered negligent under the law. If your auto accident was caused by another driver’s negligence such as ignoring traffic signs, speeding, or driving under the influence, you may be entitled to a settlement.
Nine times out of ten, insurance companies do not reasonably evaluate their cases. They will try to lowball you with a settlement that barely covers your medical bills. This is where personal injury attorneys can step in and act on behalf of their client. Insurance companies will try to avoid what they see as excessive payment at all costs, which is why you need Mark Martinez in your corner.
