Sacramento Car Accident Lawyer

There are a lot of cars on the California roads and as the population increases, so do car accidents.

In fact, in 2007 alone, 4,000 people died on California roads and highways. The grieving process alone for losing a loved one in an automobile accident is difficult alone but trying to cope with the thought that the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence is even more devastating.

If you or someone you know lost a loved one due to the irresponsibility of someone else, you could potentially pursue a wrongful death claim. Immediately seek advice and consultation from an experienced Sacramento automobile accident lawyer.

While there is no amount of money that can bring a loved one back, California law allows victims to receive compensation for financial burdens and in some cases, the emotional suffering. Although each case is different, some of the compensation that is available to surviving family members are:

  • income
  • potential future earnings and inheritances
  • medical expenses
  • funeral costs
  • emotional pain and suffering

Driver Negligence

Every driver on the road has a responsibility to act and drive cautiously to safeguard everyone else on the road. When a driver is negligent or reckless however, he or she does not take the safety of others into account. Some of the most common types of driver negligence are:

  • driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • speeding
  • ignoring the rules of the road
  • using a cellphone to talk or text
  • fatigued driving
  • passengers talking or distracting you
  • anything else that distracts you from your responsibility of careful driving

Any of these reckless behaviors can cause an accident and take a life whether it’s someone in another vehicle or a pedestrian on the street. Reckless driving can cause some of the most severe types of accidents such as head-on collisions and side-impact crashes which could lead to serious injuries and death. Some of the common types of fatal car accidents due to negligence are:

  • rear-end accidents
  • intersection accidents
  • alcohol related accidents
  • hit and run
  • motorcycle accidents
  • pedestrian accidents

Establishing Fault

In order to receive compensation, you must establish who is at fault. This is not an easy process to do and usually an experienced Sacramento automobile accident lawyer is best to help you in your specific circumstance. To prove fault, a judge will have to review:

  • official accident reconstructions
  • medical records
  • testimony from witnesses
  • police reports

In order to have a successful lawsuit in California, the plaintiff must prove that

  1. a death occurred
  2. the death was caused by another’s negligence or an intent to cause harm
  3. and the surviving family must show how they suffered a loss as a result of the victim’s death.

      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!

      DUI Defense Client

      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.

      Personal Injury Client

      “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!”
