Filing an Auto Accident Claim After a Ventura Crash

Ventura offers a wide range of recreational activities, including boating, bicycling, and skateboarding. There is a lot of pedestrian traffic due to the excellent shopping and dining options, most of which downtown. Car accidents are a common occurrence due to the fact that often times vehicles navigating in and around the city are driven by people who are unfamiliar with the multiple distractions and one-way streets.

Being involved in a car accident in Ventura can have a significant impact on your future physical and emotional well-being, but you can be proactive to protect your rights and get the help you need. If you've been injured as the result of another's negligence, you may be entitled to get compensation from the at-fault party. Experienced Ventura personal injury attorney Renée Nordstrand of NordstrandBlack PC can help you understand your legal rights and options. For a free consultation, call (866) 298-2041.

Who is Responsible?

To be successful in filing a car accident claim, another person or entity must have caused the injury accident as a result of their own negligence. Proving negligence is key to getting the money you need to cover medical bills, loss of income, and any other damages you've suffered as a result of the collision. Understanding what is considered negligence and what is not is important to determine whether you may have a valid claim. Whether you were rear-ended, or side-swiped on the freeway, if your accident was caused by actions such as the following, you may have cause for legal action:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Defective auto parts
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Improper, abrupt, or unreasonable braking

Even if your accident was caused by one of the above examples of negligence or recklessness, your case must be presented with the appropriate evidence to be successful. An experienced attorney would know exactly what information you'd need, how to get it, and how to present it effectively.

As an experienced car crash attorney, Renée J. Nordstrand-Black examines every detail of an accident and gathers the appropriate evidence to support your claim.

In addition, she is has over 25 years of experience working with uncooperative insurance companies and will make sure you get the maximum settlement amount for your claim.

Aggressively Protecting Your Legal Rights

Suffering serious injuries in a car or pedestrian accident can be overwhelming. Your first priority is to get the necessary medical attention, but multiple treatments and ongoing care can quickly make your health expenses skyrocket, and insurance may not cover everything. If you can't work while you recover, you may find yourself falling into debt due to the costs of your recovery. These costs should not be your responsibility but the responsibility of the person or company that caused your injuries.
