Car Accident Injuries: Insurance Benefits, Medical Coverage, and More

In any accident—but particularly in auto accidents involving serious injuries—it is critical to consult with an auto accident attorney as soon as possible after you have gotten the necessary medical attention. It is especially important to have legal representation before you engage in discussions with an insurance company. They are not going to pay the full value of your case without a fight.

Investigating the facts and laying the groundwork in a personal injury case should be done right away. Memories fade, and witnesses and physical evidence can disappear. Our team at Gonzalez & Jones will move quickly to begin our investigation and gather facts, so we can preserve valuable evidence that will make your best case. Then, we take on the insurance company with an aggressive strategy. In some cases, we can negotiate a settlement for the full amount you deserve. When litigation becomes necessary, we apply our extensive experience and courtroom skill to vigorously pursue your lawsuit.

Coverage of and application of medical insurance has become extremely complicated in light of recent California court decisions. Ambulances and hospitals attempt to avoid using your medical insurance so they can recover more money to your detriment. Reimbursement to medical insurance providers is negotiable and a critical part in resolving the case. To get the maximum recovery, competent legal counsel is essential.

California Wrongful Death Compensation

If you lost a loved one in a serious car collision or other accident that was another person's fault, your family is entitled to recover for your loss. California state law gives you the right to bring a civil action in court. While no amount of money can compensate for a lost life, you should not have to carry the financial burden caused by the loss. Family members can also be compensated for the loss of love and more. The specific compensation will depend on the facts in each individual case. Damages that can be recovered typically include:

  • funeral and burial expenses, as well as medical and hospital expenses
  • lost income, including potential future income of the deceased person
  • expenses for household services
  • lost anticipated financial support
  • loss of love, companionship, affection, assistance, moral support and guidance

Our wrongful death attorneys at Gonzalez & Jones apply our skill and aggressive representation in wrongful death cases just as we do in non-fatal personal injury cases. We will fight hard for you and your family to receive maximum compensation for loss of your loved one.
