Sacramento Auto Accident Attorney

Injured in an Accident? Call for a Consultation

Unfortunately, the volume of traffic on California’s roads and highways makes accidents inevitable. When someone is hurt in an accident, it may be possible to seek compensation when the accident was the fault of the other driver. If you need a car accident lawyer in Sacramento, Carichoff Law Group has more than 15 years of experience representing injured clients.

Take the first step by calling (916) 471-6098 to schedule a consultation.

What Kinds of Damages Can I Recover?

If you have been injured in an accident and another driver was at fault, you may be able to recover compensation to help recover the damages you suffered. The cost to repair or replace your vehicle, lost wages, medical expenses, and other expenses related to the injury are considered economic damages. Pain, disability, disfigurement, and emotional distress are classified as non-economic damages.

Recoverable damages for car accident injury claims include:

  • undefinedCar rental expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering

California has a strict two-year statute of limitations for filing a legal case for personal injury and three years for property damage. It's important to contact our firm as soon as you can to avoid missing the time limit and to give us more time to gather evidence and prepare your case.

California's At-Fault Compensation Law

California uses an “at fault” or tort system for auto accident insurance claims. This means that the injured person must be able to demonstrate that the other driver was at fault for the accident in order to recover compensation.

The law can be complex, but Attorney Carichoff takes the time to understand the nature of the accident and explain the law as it pertains to your case. We offer personalized representation and thoroughly prepare cases to demonstrate how our clients’ lives have been affected by the accident.

Can I Recover Compensation If I Share Fault for the Accident?

Comparative fault laws in California allow victims injured in car accidents to still recover damages even if they are partially to blame for the accident. Sometimes called comparative negligence, this system reduces the amount of compensation the accident victim can recover by the percentage of fault they share for the accident.

It is essential that the defendant and their insurance company prove that:

  • The victim of the accident was acting negligently;
  • The victim's negligence was a substantial factor in causing the accident that harmed them.

If you were involved in a car crash and you believe you share blame, or the other driver isn't claiming responsibility, we encourage you to contact Carichoff Law Group immediately so that we counsel on what to do next!
