Why You Need a Sierra Highway Accident Attorney

While car accident claims can often be resolved through intricate negotiations with an insurance company, insurers often put profits ahead of people and seek to pay as little as possible or delay or deny claims. In addition, insurance companies will not cover your losses if you sustain a serious injury that results in temporary disability, disfigurement, or other harm. This includes pain and suffering, emotional distress, and financial losses.

That’s where J&Y comes in. We will leverage our negotiating skills to achieve a settlement that is fair and reasonable. If the insurer refuses to offer the full value of your claim, or you have suffered a catastrophic injury, we will file a lawsuit to win you damages that consider all your future financial and medical needs. Above all, we will always work in your best interests, fight to protect your rights, and help you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve.

Types of Accidents J&Y Law Handles

Backed by decades of practicing personal injury law, we regularly handle all types of car accident claims, including:

Certainly, there are plenty of freeways in and around Los Angeles that bypass the Sierra Highway, but the storied history and scenic views of El Camino Sierra make it attractive to motorists, sometimes with tragic consequences. 

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, your primary concern is getting the medical care you need, but you probably also have concerns about how to pay the medical bills and household expenses, how to hold the other driver accountable, and how to obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

  • Take over all communications with the insurance company
  • Conduct a thorough investigation of the accident site
  • Work with accident reconstruction specialists to collect forensic evidence
  • Identity and interview witnesses, including police and first responders

  • Enlist medical and vocational experts to testify or provide statements

By working with our accomplished California car accident attorneys, you can obtain the resources you need to cover your medical care and protect your financial future.

Damages You Can Recover in a Sierra Highway Accident

No two cases are alike and any compensation you receive will be based on several factors, not least of which is the nature of your injuries (e.g. fractures, whiplash, head or neck injury, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury. Our experienced attorney will fight to help you win both economic and noneconomic damages such as:

  • Medical costs (past & future)
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Cost of rehabilitation/physical therapy
  • Expenses for assistive devices (e.g. braces, crutches, wheelchair)
  • Required modifications to your residence (e.g. ramps, protective railings)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Also, if the other driver’s conduct was particularly egregious (e.g. drunk driving) you may also be awarded punitive damages which are designed to punish his or her misconduct and deter other drivers from engaging in similar misconduct.

Finally, if a loved one has been fatally injured in a Sierra Highway accident, we may recommend filing a wrongful death lawsuit to obtain compensation for losses, including the comfort, care, and guidance he or she would have provided. A lawsuit will not bring back a lost family member, but it will help you obtain justice and the future resources you need
