El Dorado County Car Accident Lawyer – Cameron Park Office

Professional and Caring Assistance for El Dorado Car Crash Injury Victims

Perhaps no other natural feature is associated more with El Dorado County than Lake Tahoe, but as the City of Sacramento continues to expand this metropolitan area is becoming increasingly associated with El Dorado County, too. So are car accidents: according to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), in 2014 there were 863 individuals either killed or injured in collisions. Statistics from the California OTS also show that during that same year:

  • Over 170 of these injuries and deaths were alcohol-related, a number that is statistically greater (considering the population of El Dorado County) than other counties;
  • When considering the number of traffic injuries and deaths involving a driver between the ages of 21 and 34 years old who had been drinking (again, also considering the population of the county), El Dorado County ranks third out of all of California’s 58 counties; and
  • Over 150 fatal and injury collisions in El Dorado County were attributable to excessive speed.

These statistics reveal a truth that some El Dorado County families know too well: there is a considerable risk of being injured or killed – especially by a drunk driver or driver who has been drinking – if you get behind the wheel and drive in El Dorado County.

Why Should I Contact an El Dorado Car Accident Attorney Soon After My Crash?

California Code of Civil Procedure 335.1 clearly states that El Dorado car crash victims who desire to pursue a claim for compensation through a lawsuit must initiate such lawsuit within two years of the date of their crash. If a car crash victim attempts to bring a lawsuit after this two-year period has expired, he or she may find that the lawsuit is dismissed and his or her claim for compensation denied, regardless of the strength of the evidence or the extent of the person’s injuries and losses.

In cases where the injury victim has no reason to suspect that he or she has been injured in a car crash (for example, if the victim suffer a back injury that does not result in symptoms for weeks or months after the crash, then this two-year period will begin to run on the date that the victim knew or should have known that he or she suffered some injury in the car crash. For this reason, it is always helpful and beneficial to speak with an El Dorado car accident attorney as soon as possible about your rights and ability to recover monetary damages, even if you believe two or more years have passed since the car crash occurred.

What Monetary Compensation is Available in an El Dorado Car Crash Lawsuit?

Car crash victims who are able to demonstrate that another driver caused the car crash and their resulting injuries are entitled to receive monetary compensation for those injuries, losses, and expenses that are attributable to the careless or reckless actions of the at-fault driver. This can include compensation for:

  • Medical bills, the costs of treatments and/or surgeries, as well as ongoing medical costs that you are likely to need in the future (whether on a temporary or permanent basis);
  • The costs of medical assistive devices like crutches and wheelchairs as well as for prescription drug costs;
  • Lost wages that are the result of missing work due to your injuries, your recovery, and any doctors’ appointments you must make. In addition, you may also be able to recover compensation for any reduction in your income that results from your inability to return to your former occupation;
  • Mental pain and suffering that you experienced after your car wreck and/or during your recovery;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, if you are not able to engage in activities you once enjoyed; and/or
    Any other loss or expense that is quantifiable and that is caused by the at-fault driver’s careless actions and resulting crash.

You only have one opportunity to obtain the compensation you need – even if your El Dorado car accident lawsuit is successful, you cannot return to court and ask for additional compensation once your case has been decided. Therefore, it is highly advisable to speak with an experienced and knowledgeable El Dorado car accident lawyer who can review the facts of your case and help ensure you obtain the full amount of compensation you will need.

What Should I Bring to My Meeting with My El Dorado Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer?

When you contact The Wyatt Law Corp, we will arrange a meeting with you to discuss the facts and circumstances of your El Dorado motor vehicle accident case. During your meeting, you can expect us to advise you as to your legal rights and to answer any questions you may have about the recovery process.

In order to obtain the maximum benefit possible from this initial meeting, it is helpful if you are able to bring:

  • Any medical bills, medical records, insurance statements, invoices, or other documentation about the extent of your losses and injuries;
  • A description (preferably written) of the accident, including details of how the accident occurred, what happened after the accident, and any statements the at-fault driver may have made to you or to others;
  • Any photographs, diagrams, or police reports associated with the accident.

The Wyatt Law Corp will assist you in taking the necessary steps to secure the financial recovery you and your family need following an El Dorado car crash. Contact Russ Wyatt and the El Dorado car accident recovery team today at (916) 277-8820.

Car Accidents

If you were injured in an accident, don't let insurance companies take advantage of you. We'll help you receive the compensation you need to recover.

Truck Accidents

If you were a victim in an accident involving a commercially owned truck, recovery is complicated. Commercial trucking accidents generate a lot of paperwork and our attorneys and investigators know how to sort through this mountain of evidence.

Work Related Accidents

If you were injured in an accident at work, you'll need a law firm that is skilled both in workers’ compensation claims AND civil claims so that you can receive payments for medical bills, lost wages and physical or mental pain and suffering.
