This blog has written frequently about truck, automobile and motorcycle accidents in the Los Angeles area in which the victims have died or suffered extremely serious injuries, such as loss of a limb, loss of vision or permanent disability. Under California law, a person who is at fault for such an accident must pay damages to the victims, but few persons who cause accidents (or their insurance companies) will voluntarily pay more than a small amount to the injured parties. The only way to obtain a full recovery for damages suffered in a truck, automobile or motorcycle accident is to commence legal action.
A lawsuit, of course, requires an attorney to initiate and direct the case. In addition, a successful lawsuit depends upon doctors and other medical specialists to testify about the extent of the injuries suffered by the victims and the likelihood of their recovery from those injuries, an accident reconstruction specialist who can testify about how the accident happened and perhaps one or more automotive engineers if the accident was caused by a defective vehicle part.
Managing this team requires experience and knowledge about a number of fields of knowledge in addition to the law. Lawyers must be knowledgeable about the nature of serious injuries, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, nerve damage and severely fractured bones. Attorneys who handle accident cases must also possess knowledge about how to calculate lost wages and future income and how to present engineering or other expert testimony.
