Sacramento Car Accident Lawyers
Helping You Recover Maximum Compensation from Negligent Drivers
On average, the U.S. sees 37,000 deaths due to car accidents each year, and more than 2.3 million serious injuries. Cars are an important part of our lives and culture, especially in California, so keeping yourself safe by staying off the road isn’t a viable option.
Negligent drivers are unfortunately everywhere, and their bad habits result in innocent people being injured. The victims in this situation may struggle with difficulties like mounting medical bills and an inability to return to work immediately. We can provide the support you need so filing an insurance claim isn’t another hardship.
Insurance adjusters often try to convince accident victims to accept settlements that are far lower than they should be. If you’ve been injured, they may try to play on your financial anxiety about medical bills because a quick decision typically works in their favor. They could also try to confuse you into saying something that can be used against you. The experienced, capable car accident attorneys at Del Rio & Caraway, P.C. are here to help you avoid these ploys. We are passionate about helping people in your position learn the true worth of their claims, so they know what a fair settlement offer looks like.
Our team is available 24/7 to take your calls at (916) 229-6755, whether you’re an injury victim looking for help or a client with questions about their case. Get started today with a free evaluation.
Why Do I Need an Attorney for a Car Accident?
Some car accident victims make the mistake of not hiring a lawyer, telling themselves they already have enough going on in their lives. They put their trust in the insurance company to cover the cost of medical expenses and damage to their vehicle. Unfortunately, an insurance adjuster is not your friend—no matter how nice they sound on their phone. Their goal is to save their company money, and that means offering you a lower settlement than what you deserve.
Therefore, even if the accident was completely someone else’s fault, you will want someone to advocate for you, or your recovery may be at risk.
Our personal injury attorneys can thoroughly investigate the circumstances involved in your accident and help determine who can be held liable for your injuries and damages. We can also handle all negotiations with the insurance companies, giving you much needed physical and emotional rest.
At Del Rio & Caraway, P.C., we have successfully represented clients after accidents and injuries caused by:
- Commercial Vehicles
- Distracted Driving
- Drunk Driving
- Faulty Vehicle Parts
- Multi-Passenger Vans
- Poor Road Conditions
- Rideshare Drivers (Uber and Lyft)
There are many forms of negligence that can cause a car accident. No matter the identity of the other party in your case, we’re not afraid to file a claim against them.
Common Questions About Car Accident Claims
How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim?
In California, the statute of limitations for a car accident claim is two years. This may seem far in the future, but waiting to take action could mean we have less time to prepare your case. If you don’t file a claim before the statute of limitations runs out, you might not be able to recover anything.
How Can an Attorney Help Me?
Healing from injuries takes a lot of time and energy. Trying to deal with a pushy insurance adjuster during your recovery can make both efforts more difficult. Our attorneys will take over insurer negotiations, and we’ll make sure the adjuster doesn’t try to blame you for anything that wasn’t your fault. Though most car accident cases are settled, we are not afraid to take a case to court if that’s what it takes.
What if I Wasn’t Injured?
Because car accidents release so much adrenaline, it’s common to feel no pain at the accident site. In fact, some injuries may not show themselves for days after the collision. Even if you think you’re fine, there is a chance you’ve been hurt and will need compensation to help cover your medical bills. Reach out to our team to discuss what you should do if you’re in this situation.
