Personal Injury Accidents

One of the most common accidents we see on a daily basis involves motor vehicles. Driving a motor vehicle in the Bay Area can feel like a risky activity. How many times have you seen cars recklessly driving at high speeds well above the speed limit, making unsafe lane changes, and overall failing to follow the rules of the road?  Failure to abide by these safety laws could cause an accident with catastrophic consequences. Even a relatively minor crash could land a person in the hospital. Serious incidents could result in life-threatening injuries that affect every portion of a person’s future.

 

If you or a loved one were injured due to a negligent actions of another, Ballesteros Law could explain your rights while on the road, gather evidence, speak to witnesses, and demand proper compensation from the at-fault party. 

Pre-Litigation Settlement Process

and/or psychological support to address physical and psychological effects.

Evidence Gathering

Our law firm conducts a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the injury, gathers evidence such as medical records, police reports, witness statements, wage loss and any other relevant documentation to support the claim.

4

Quality of Life Assessment

Our law firm will check in with a client post-accident, inquire about physical limitations, emotional well-being, social relationships, occupational and financial impact, recreational activities, and overall satisfaction to comprehensively understand the multidimensional effects of their injuries

Demand Letter Preparation

Based on the gathered evidence and legal analysis, our law firm will work with medical analysts and draft a demand letter outlining the client's injuries, damages, and the basis for the claim. This letter is typically sent to the at-fault party or their insurance company, detailing the compensation sought for the injuries sustained.

Negotiation

Once the demand letter is sent, the law firm engages in negotiations with the opposing party or their insurance adjusters. This negotiation process may involve back-and-forth discussions to reach a fair settlement amount that adequately compensates the client for their injuries and losses.
