California Personal Injury Lawyer

Compassion is key as a personal injury attorney in California. We work with clients and families in the most vulnerable times of their lives.

We started The Sargent Firm to help people in times of need. When you hire our personal injury lawyers we will treat you with respect and educate throughout the process. Most of our clients have never had to hire an accident attorney in California before and we understand how people feel in this situation.

Practice Areas

Car Accidents

A car accident can leave a victim and his or her family with catastrophic injuries, significant financial expenses, and considerable mental anguish and pain.

Wrongful Death

The tragedy of losing a loved one is difficult to overstate. Many families have to cope with the emotional pain of their loss while simultaneously dealing with the financial burdens that accompany wrongful deaths.

Bicycle Accident

As bicycle riders attempt to share the road with other cyclists, motorcycles, cars, trucks, and buses, there is always the chance that an accident will happen, and unfortunately, bicycle accidents tend to result in serious and often permanent injuries.

Nursing Home Abuse

The California Department of Justice and The Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse are preparing for a massive influx of seniors in San Diego and throughout California into nursing homes and long-term care facilities, so that the current number is assumed to nearly double by 2030.

Motorcycle Accident

California offers motorcycle riders some of the best views in the United States. Perhaps that is why California has the largest number of motorcycle riders in the country. The California Highway Patrol estimates that there are over 1.4 million motorcycle riders in the state.

Truck Accident

Truck accidents often involve complex factual questions such as the events that lead to and caused an accident, determining who is responsible, and how to be compensated for your pain and suffering.

Auto Accident Frequently Asked Questions

What Do California’s Liability Laws Say About Receiving Compensation?

When they receive their license, California drivers agree to exercise reasonable care anytime they get behind the wheel. This means avoiding violations of the California Vehicle Code, and not putting others at risk. As a part of this agreement, drivers may be legally and financially responsible if they fail to exercise reasonable care and cause an auto accident.

California is a “fault state” when it comes to car accident liability. This means that the party responsible for causing the accident is responsible for paying financial damages. In most cases, the liable party for an accident is another driver. According to NHTSA, human error causes almost 95 percent of crashes. Vehicle-related failures or other factors that drivers cannot prevent caused only about two percent of crashes.

So after an accident, victims typically have a few options to recover compensation which we encourage them to discuss with our injury lawyers after the California police department has written up a report. An automobile accident lawyer can help with:

  • Making a claim through the liable driver’s insurance policy
  • Filing a personal injury claim in court against the liable driver
  • Filing a claim under your insurance policy, depending on your coverage
What Am I Entitled to Recover After A Car Accident?

If you suffered injuries in a car accident anywhere in California and another driver was at fault, you may be able to recover compensation for a number of damages with the help of a personal injury lawyer. These include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage, including replacing your vehicle
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
Why Should I Talk To An Auto Accident Lawyer After A California Car Accident?

According to the Insurance Research Counsel (IRC), victims of car accidents who have a California injury attorney get a settlement that is 3.5 times larger on average than those who do not. Hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you helps ensure you get all the compensation that is available to you so you do not leave any on the table.

Accident lawyers at Sargent will do more than represent you during settlement negotiations or in court. They will gather the evidence necessary to prove the other driver is at fault while also verifying the extent of your injuries and calculating a fair value for the damages you suffered. In many cases, we help our clients negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company without having to go court.

Motorcycle Accident Frequently Asked Questions

What type of damages can I recover after a motorcycle accident?

If another driver was at fault in the accident that caused your injuries, you may be entitled to receive compensation for a number of damages, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Damage to your motorcycle and other property
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Our personal injury attorneys in California can identify all possible damages in your case, and ensure you have the proof necessary to present them to the insurance company and in court.

  • Filing a personal injury claim in court against the liable driver
  • Filing a claim under your insurance policy, depending on your coverage
How does liability work in California?

California is a fault state, meaning that the at-fault party is responsible for paying for damages caused in a crash. Often, the driver’s auto liability insurance policy covers the damages.

Under California law, there are a number of ways that victims can recover compensation from the liable parties after a motorcycle accident. Victims can:

  • Seek compensation from the liable party’s insurance company
  • File suit against the liable party
  • File an insurance claim under their own policy (depending on their coverage)

It is important to note that in some cases more than one person shares the responsibility in causing a collision. When this occurs, the compensation received from each of the liable parties correlates to the amount of fault assigned to them by the court. This is called comparative fault or comparative negligence. If you are partially at fault, your compensation will be reduced accordingly.

Once you file a personal injury suit, you will be required to prove that the accident was the fault of the other driver or drivers, and you were not at fault. Being able to prove your actions did not contribute to the crash is key in getting the maximum compensation possible. Depending on the facts of your accident, this may require an extensive investigation and aggressive advocacy from a California personal injury attorney.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

People who hire a California injury lawyer get 3.5 times more money for their auto accident claim, according to a study by the Insurance Research Counsel (IRC).

Insurance companies don’t want you to hire a lawyer because they want to pay out as little as possible. When you hire a personal injury lawyer you get these benefits.

Are you a no win no fee law firm?

The majority of personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that if they take your case, they will not require payment unless they are able to get compensation for you. Then, their fee will come out of that compensation.

The Sargent Law Firm will provide a free consultation and will charge a contingency fee, only if you receive a settlement or judgment in your favor.

How much is my case worth?

If you have been injured as a result of someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive money for your damages. The law provides that you may be able to recover money for physical injuries, medical expenses (past and future), pain and suffering, mental and emotional distress, inconvenience, loss of income, loss of earning capacity, property damage, and other losses. You also may be able to recover punitive damages as well. Most people assume that the insurance companies will pay you 3 times your medical expenses for your pain and suffering. This is not true.

The insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim. This is why you may need a personal injury attorney to help identify what type of damages you are entitled to and to fight to get them. Most plaintiff’s who were injured in an auto accident and hire a personal injury lawyer will recover 3 times more money than they would have without a lawyer.

Insurance companies know if you do not have a lawyer they have a better chance of settling your case for less than what it is worth. Our California personal injury lawyers look at all of the facts to determine what the value of your case is. Every case is different and needs to be individually evaluated to determine what the case is worth. If you would like to speak to a personal injury attorney about how much your case is worth feel free to contact us. We will talk to you about what your damages are and how much you may be entitled to recover free of charge and with no obligations.

Can I get medical treatment for my injuries if I don't have health insurance?

If we take on your case and you need medical treatment, but do not have health insurance, we can help you obtain treatment. Our California accident attorneys know a network of medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and many specialists that will treat you even if you don’t have health insurance. Our personal injury lawyers can help you find medical providers that will delay payment of their medical bills until your case is resolved.
