If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to a cash settlement for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost earnings and other expenses. However, if you are not represented by a personal injury attorney, the insurance companies will not treat you fairly. You need competent representation by an injury lawyer on your side to make it a fair fight. We are aggressive personal injury lawyers who represent injured victims for a contingent fee, which means that we only charge a fee if we win you a judgment or a cash settlement.

Hundreds of thousands of people are injured in car accidents. In fact, most personal injury lawsuits involve auto accidents. Each year, the financial cost of car accidents totals over twenty billion dollars in California according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
In 2005, there were more than six million car accidents in the United States. The cost of these crashes totaled over two hundred billion dollars, 2.9 million people were injured and almost 42,000 people were killed. In the United States, car accidents cause one death every thirteen minutes. World-wide, car crashes are to blame for more than one million deaths annually. Around the world, fatalities from car accidents have gone down since 1980 by almost 50% in most countries. The number of vehicle-related deaths in the U.S., however, has increased.
If you have been injured in a car accident, it is important to get both medical and legal help right away. If you are a personal injury victim, our experienced lawyers will provide you with the best legal representation available so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
In order to recover monetary damages following a car accident, you must establish that the other driver was at fault for the crash. Some cases are relatively clear. For example, if someone hits you from behind, it is virtually never your fault, regardless of why you stopped. In other cases, however, fault is more difficult to prove. We will examine all available information, such as the traffic collision report, the scene of the accident, the witness statements, the property damage estimates and all available photos to determine who was responsible for the accident.
Drunk drivers are a major threat to road safety. Someone who causes an accident while driving drunk is negligent, and should be held responsible for the damage they cause. Gordon Levinson serves on the Advisory Board for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and is a major MADD supporter. The fight against drunk driving is one of his great passions. So if you have been injured in a drunk-driving accident, the Levinson Law Group will aggressively represent you and protect your rights.
Hit and Run Accidents
Hit and run cases are common in California. More drivers flee from the scenes of fatal crashes in California than in any other state, and some of the commonly cited reasons include:
- An unlicensed driver,
- An undocumented alien,
- An uninsured driver,
- A wide and busy roadway which provides an easy escape route,
- California’s generally heavy car culture, or
- The fear of severe penalties for drunk driving.
When you don’t have a lawyer on your side, insurance companies regularly try to settle cases for the lowest amount possible, often offering car accident victims settlements for as little as $500 or $1,000. If you are not familiar with the insurance claim process, the insurance company will have a major advantage over you. Legal representation by an experienced personal injury attorney will help assure that you are treated fairly, shield you from unwanted calls from the insurance adjuster and prevent an unreasonable settlement.
Be careful when providing information to an auto insurance company. You are not required to comply with all of the insurance adjuster’s requests. Insurance companies typically request a recorded statement from you, all of your confidential medical and employment records, and they often request that you submit to a medical examination by their doctors. By obtaining all of this information, they are building their case against you! If you have been in a car accident and the insurance company is harassing you for confidential information, call the Levinson Law Group at 1-866-643-HURT (4878) before you spoil your own case and hurt your odds of receiving a fair settlement.
If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to receive economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include quantifiable items such as your property damage, medical bills, loss of the use of your vehicle, lost earnings, lost future earning capacity and other items. Non-economic damages include items that cannot be quantified but are nevertheless real, such as the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, inconvenience caused by your injuries, emotional distress, loss of consortium and other items. The key to a successful personal-injury case is to gather all of the items of damage and include them in the claim. At the Levinson Law Group, we maximize your damage claim to get you the largest overall cash settlement possible.
It is important to seek representation from a qualified and experienced personal-injury lawyer as soon as possible following a car accident. Your time is limited when it comes to getting compensation, so it is important to obtain counsel as quickly as possible.
