Sherman Oaks Accident Resolution Process

If you’re reading this while still at the accident scene, make sure you get all the information from the other driver, take pictures of the vehicles, and if your body feels any different than before the accident, call 911 and request an ambulance.

After the car accident, here are the broad stroke steps to getting your claim resolved:

   Get medical treatment

   Collect and sort all treatment records

   Prepare demand package & send to insurance company

   Negotiate Settlement & if that fails file a lawsuit

I say broad strokes for good reason.  There are dozens of mini-steps that we do for you throughout and between those steps.

For example, we’ll send letters of representation to the insurance company, speak with your medical providers to learn how they may testify in your case, analyze the medical records for certain value indicators, and prepare demonstratives to help facilitate high value settlements.

Once your medical treatment is done, the process generally takes 4-6 months to either settle or hit a wall in negotiation where we have to file a lawsuit.  The good news is, once we represent you, you sit back and move on with your life while we handle the headache and tornado of paperwork for you.

Proving Liability for Sherman Oaks Car Accidents

Every car accident lawyer knows that to win your case, we must prove four basic elements:





Duty is easy, it’s rarely a fight for car accident cases.

The real fight is “breach”, proving the other lawyer did something wrong.  You’re probably reading this thinking, “breach isn’t a question in my case, I was rear-ended, it’s totally the other driver’s fault.”  You’d be surprised how jurors decide cases.  It’s not based on what YOU think, it’s based on a collection of intangible factors, and that sometimes means letting the other driver off the hook.  Also, if the adjuster fights you on liability, you have to fight and win that fight, regardless of how obvious liability may be.

Indeed, winning the liability issue, which is synonymous with proving the “breach” element, extends beyond how you perceived the collision or even the statutory rules of the road.  We use case framing and discovery techniques to ensure the jury analyzes the collision deductively from a lens that leads them to the conclusion that gets you justice.

Once we prove there was a breach in the other driver’s duty, we must prove specific causation; that is, that the car accident caused the injuries that you claim you suffered in that accident.  This is where the biggest fight is on car accident cases, and insurance companies have many tricks they use on this element to justify not paying you.

Thankfully, our Sherman Oaks accident lawyers know those tricks, and preemptively workup your case from the first steps to ensure it is as close to bullet proof as possible from those insurance attacks, thereby maximizing your claim.  Call us to find out more.

Car Accident Injury Facts

The two biggest factors that impact how much money you can get for your vehicle accident are:

   Injury Type

   Injury Location

We go into greater detail on this issue on our injury home page.  The short version is, certain injuries on certain areas of your body are worth more than others.

For example, a herniated disc in your lumbar spine usually gets a bigger settlement than a herniated disc in your thoracic spine.  I bet you didn’t know that?

Our Sherman Oaks accident lawyers have settled hundreds of accident claims, so they are intimately familiar with valuation of your injury claim.  This is extremely important knowledge because without it a lawyer would get stiffed in negotiations with a savvy insurance adjuster.

Car Accident Damages You Can Recover

“Damages” is the lawyer word for anything you’ve lost, whether it be physical or non-physical.

Whether your car accident happened in Sherman Oaks or anywhere else in Los Angeles, you are only able to recover a statutorily dictated category of damages.

Those damages are:

   Lost Wages

   Medical Expenses

   Property Damage

   Miscellaneous Out of Pocket Expenses

   Emotional Injuries (such as fear and anxiety)

   Physical Injuries (such as pain and anguish)

Each category of damages needs specific case workup to ensure you max out recovery for that category.

This is not a one-size fits all approach.  We work through years of experience and in-house checklists to find the value points in your case that we can highlight for the insurance company.  We also listen to your human story to appreciate the depth of your loss and what you are going through.

With proper and thorough workup, we ensure that you are heard and compensated for your car accident injuries, harms and losses.
