Sacramento Car Accident Attorneys

Legal Support After Serious Crashes

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of catastrophic injuries and death in the United States. Insurance companies get plenty of opportunities to learn how to defend against car accident claims and lawsuits that go to court. When you need to file a claim in pursuit of compensation, you should work with an attorney who has had plenty of experiences with claims like yours, too.

At Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC, you can work with a team of Sacramento car accident lawyers with decades of collective legal experience. No matter what type of car accident you were in or why it happened, you can be confident that we have seen cases like it before. At the same time, though, we see every case as unique and give each personalized attention.

Let us know if you were hurt in an accident caused by a driver who was:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk
  • Texting
  • Uninsured

It would be our honor to help you create a claim that can pursue the fullest compensation owed to you. Auto insurance companies might put on a friendly face for commercials, but you will find shortly into your claim that they are not exactly cooperative when you inform them that their policyholder owes you money. Before an insurer can make problems for your case, call (916) 884-6554 and schedule a FREE confidential consultation with our firm.

Adding Up the Damages of Your Crash

The value of your car accident claim will be reflected in the total damages you have incurred and will incur due to the crash. Our car accident attorneys can sort through your bills, receipts, pay stubs, and more to figure out just how much your finances have been impacted. When we reach a fair total compensation amount, we can then analyze the insurance policies held by the liable driver, which might go beyond just an auto insurance policy. In following these steps, we aim to maximize the compensation owed to you and secure it with convincing evidence of liability.

Damages in your car accident claim can include:

  • Medical costs, both past and future
  • Lost wages and income, both past and future
  • Permanent disabilities and related living adjustments
  • Vehicle and property repairs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and PTSD

Can You Get Punitive Damages for a Car Crash Claim?

Courts will sometimes approve punitive damages in a personal injury claim to further punish the defendant for criminal wrongdoing or negligence that a reasonable would call “egregious.” Although it is rare, punitive damages could potentially be awarded in your car accident claim. For example, if you were hit by a drunk driver who was going three times the speed limit in a residential area, then punitive damages could be approved. We would be happy to talk to you about this type of damage while your case progresses and whether we think you should demand them.

California’s Two-Year Car Accident Statute of Limitations

There is a two-year statute of limitations on car accident claims filed in California. You have two years from the date of the accident to bring forth a personal injury claim, or you will be unable to file one after. Keep in mind that auto insurance claims must be filed much sooner, though. To get your case moving in the right direction and before time runs out, we highly recommend you call us at (916) 884-6554 within the same or next day after a crash.
