SACRAMENTO CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER

Sacramento car accident lawyer

Unfortunately, car accidents are very common in the US

Vehicle accidents seem different on the outside then when they happen to you. When you are involved in a car accident, the hundreds of thoughts and feelings running through your mind can cloud your best judgement. Anger, fear, pain and so many other emotions can dramatically affect the aftermath of an accident. If you or someone else is injured, it’s important to call an ambulance and seek medical attention immediately. But how do you know if the injury is serious enough to warrant an ambulance call? Consulting a car accident attorney in Sacramento is always a good idea to get legal advice pertaining to your situation.

After being in an accident, with emotions running high, you may be discerning if it’s necessary to take an ambulance. You might be telling yourself you’re okay, or that you can maintain composure and that you can manage to visit a doctor tomorrow. You don’t have to think about ambulance rides as something you should avoid, and it’s important to understand the benefits.

How do I know if I should take an ambulance?

Pursuing a personal injury claim to ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries if you’ve been hurt is best handled by Sacramento accident attorney at The Choyce Law Firm. Although you do not have to accept a ride when paramedics arrive to an accident, emergency crews may advise you to take the ride if you seem to need it.

Those who aren’t familiar or cognizant with accident claims are put under the impression that you receive more money in the event you seem more injured, sometimes more injured than you are. For this reason, accident victims can opt to take an ambulance even when they aren’t seriously injured. If something doesn’t feel right, listen to yourself. You know yourself best, and your health is most important. Injuries often don’t manifest immediately, and often aren’t visible.

In the event you experience the following injuries, you should definitely take an ambulance:

  • Large lacerations or open wounds
  • Neck injuries
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Unconsciousness
  • Broken bones

Do I need to call an ambulance?

In California, police reports and emergency services are only required for accidents involving injury. Especially in the event you are not at fault for the accident and you’ve been hurt, the police report can be a great document to have in your corner if you choose to move forward with a case with the legal help of a car accident attorney in Sacramento.

Is my ambulance covered?

People opt out of ambulance rides because they have a reputation of being quite expensive. Ambulances can cost upwards of $1,000, and can be quite burdensome if not covered by your insurance. These estimated costs, also, only cover a basic ride. In the event life support is necessary, those costs can skyrocket.

If you’ve been involved in an accident with injuries, it is always in your best interest to the seek legal assistance of a car accident attorney in Sacramento to receive the assistance and compensation you deserve to get along with your life. Accidents can be life threatening, but they don’t have to permanently ruin your life.

    This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!

    Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.

    “This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him. Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!”
