Car Accident Claim Steps

Every car accident has to two phases: pre-litigation and litigation.

In pre-litigation, your claim has the following steps:

   Complete medical treatment

  Collect all records

   Prepare and submit demand letter

   Negotiate settlement

If those settlement negotiations fail, then you will have to file a lawsuit.  The steps in your lawsuit will be:

  Prepare and file complaint

   Complete written discovery

   Complete oral discovery (depositions)

   Pre-trial filings (motions for summary judgment, in limine, and to dismiss)


Whether your car accident occurred in Montebello or anywhere else in L.A., this general outline applies.

I always let my clients know that claim handling, resolution, and litigation are full time jobs.  It is, in fact, my full time job!

Either be prepared to take dozens and dozens of hours of time off of work to complete this process and these tasks, or hire a good lawyer to do them for you.

Car Accident Damages

As the victim of a car accident, you are entitled to make a claim for certain damages.  Note that I say your entitlement is to “make” the claim, as opposed to being entitled to “the damages” or “recovery of the damages.”  Having entitlement to making the claim merely opens the door.  You then have to work very hard to earn recovery of these damages listed below:

  Medical bills (past and future)

  Lost wages (past and future)

   Pain and suffering (past and future)

   Property damage

The insurance company will almost always fight you on basic things – like medical bills.  For example, they will argue your doctors charged too much (I’m not joking, that’s one of their go-to arguments) for your medical treatment so they’ll only offer to reimburse you for 1/2 of the medical bills.

Thankfully, there are strategies that we know which help ensure you have the greatest chance of receiving the maximum recovery for each of your damages categories.  To get you there, we jump in early in your claim preparation, long before a settlement demand is made, and preemptively defend your case against many known insurance adjuster attacks.

Car Accident Injury Values

There are two main injury factors which control the value of your case.  They are:

  Type of injury

  Location of injury

For example, in terms of location, consider a bulging disc.  Did you know you’re more likely to get a larger compensation for a bulging disc in your lower back versus your middle back?

In terms of type of injury, what would you think is worth more, a broken bone or a soft tissue injury?  The answer is, it depends.  For example, a soft tissue injury in your lower back may be worth more than a broken finger, or even a broken leg.

In fact, one of our lawyers settled a lower back soft tissue injury case for $200,000, but the best offer received for a non-displaced, non-surgical leg fracture was $7,000.

This reveals why lawyers have to deep dive into your case to determine its potential settlement value.  There’s a lot of nuance that goes into case valuation that a good lawyer knows how to weigh.   We’ve spent thousands of hours purely on researching injury claim values, with a chunk of our findings and analysis sorted into different pages we’ve prepared where we publish sample verdicts and settlements.

We’ll pour the same effort into calculating the value of your claim, then fight to recover that value for you from the insurance company.

Montebello Car Accident Data

All in all, this is not so bad.  Montebello looks to be middle of the pack in terms of how overall dangerous its roads are, based on this data.

I’m a little surprised to see the alcohol related accidents in Montebello be so high, though.  Personally, I’ve handled plenty of cases where the defendant was drunk or had consumed alcohol.  I have yet to see one of those cases come out of Montebello.  Could be a coincidence, or it could speak to character traits of the demographic for defendant-drivers in Montebello.
