A Review of The Reeves Law Group, Newport Beach Personal Injury Lawyers
Are You in Need of a Personal Injury Attorney?
Suffering a personal injury can be one of the most challenging experiences that you will ever have to endure. An accident can leave you hurt, unable to work, and feeling emotionally vulnerable. In the aftermath of an accident, a Newport Beach personal injury attorney can help you put the pieces of your life back together.
Personal injury attorneys are experts in understanding how accidents happen and what accident victims need to recover. Right after an accident, a skilled lawyer will collect all information about how you were hurt to understand why the accident happened and who is responsible. Having an accident attorney on your side gives you several immediate advantages.
- Your attorney will see to it that you receive the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to. Without an attorney, you may agree to a payment from an insurance company only to find out that your injuries or damages are much greater than what you had thought. Once you agree to the settlement, you will not be able to renegotiate this sum.
- Experienced attorneys are skilled negotiators. This skill set allows them to expertly maximize the compensation that you are owed.
- Firms like The Reeves Law Group have years of success behind them. The firm’s attorneys have won thousands of settlements and cases. When a defendant or insurance company learns that a law firm with this reputation is representing you, they will likely take your claim much more seriously.
The Reeves Law Group believes that everyone should be entitled to the services that we provide. That’s why we offer a free case consultation and take cases on a contingency basis. This means that you don’t pay any legal fees until we win your case. We also cover all of your case expenses throughout the settlement and litigation process.
Choosing the Right Accident Lawyer
When you are hurt in Newport Beach or in any of its surrounding communities, The Reeves Law Group’s personal injury attorneys will provide you with a free consultation. Our accident lawyers have a 98.7% recovery rate in personal injury cases and have been selected for membership in prestigious trial advocacy organizations like the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This organization limits its membership to attorneys who have won multi-million dollar trials and settlements. Additionally, lawyers without adequate financial resources might opt to settle your case quickly, sometimes for less compensation than you are owed, because they cannot afford to take your case to trial.
Our success has allowed us to have at our disposal extensive economic resources to thoroughly investigate and prepare your case. Not all personal injury attorneys have sufficient assets to invest in complex cases. Therefore, you should ensure that your accident lawyer is adequately financed.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Has a family member suffered a brain injury?
The California Department of Public Health noted that there were 19,087 cases of accidental traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Orange County in 2013. The most common causes of TBIs were slip and falls, traffic accidents, and accidentally being struck by an object.
Treatment of a TBI depends in large part on the seriousness of the injury and the person’s age. Many times, TBI victims require long-term home care since the individual cannot live on their own. This care, combined with medical treatment, can be very expensive. An accident victim who has suffered a TBI should contact a brain injury attorney immediately
- Have you suffered a work injury?
In 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics recorded 95 workplace deaths in Orange County. The Orange County Register reported in 2013 that the Los Angeles-Orange County metropolitan area was tied for the third most jobsite deaths nationwide. Many more workers suffer debilitating injuries that put them in the hospital and prevent them from earning wages. If you have suffered a work injury, you should contact a work injury attorney without delay.
A skilled lawyer will be able to review your case and determine if you are due compensation from a third party in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
- Have you suffered from a slip and fall injury?
Slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of injury in Orange County. The California Department of Public Health recorded 174,028 cases of slip and fall injuries or deaths in 2013. A property owner or manager can be found liable for a slip and fall accident if the accident was caused by a hazardous condition on the property.
Hazardous conditions in slip and fall accidents are often wet floors, uneven walkways, and poorly lit rooms or hallways. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a slip and fall accident, call a slip and fall attorney at Thee Reeves Law Group today.
- Have you suffered a spinal cord injury?
One very serious injury that happens in accidents like slip and falls and car accidents is a spinal cord injury (SPI). The spinal cord is the bundle of nerves in the spinal column. When these nerves are damaged, a person can be paralyzed, often from the waist down (paraplegia) or from the neck down (quadriplegia). Paralysis can be temporary or permanent. If you or a loved one has been paralyzed in an accident, you need to consult a spinal cord injury lawyer immediately. Your accident attorney will be able to review the facts of your case and work with medical experts to determine the care you will need to deal with the injury.
- Looking for a car accident lawyer in newport beach?
Car crashes are one of the leading personal injury accidents in Orange County. Statistically, odds are that you will be in an auto wreck at some point. When this happens, having an experienced Newport Beach car accident lawyer on your side will give you the best opportunity to recover damages. This is because proving liability in a car crash case can be difficult and requires a thorough knowledge of the law.
Most auto accidents happen because one driver acted “negligently.” Negligence is the legal term for carelessness. Every time someone takes the wheel, they have a duty to be responsible with regard to their handling of the car. However, many times, people speed, break other traffic laws, take their eyes off the road to send text messages, or talk to people in the car or on the phone. When an accident happens because of someone’s careless behavior, they are responsible for the damage that their actions cause.
To prove that someone was careless requires the skill of a Newport Beach car accident attorney. The first step for a victim’s attorney will be to collect information from the crash site. Key pieces of evidence like police reports and eyewitness statements, combined with expert accident reconstruction reports, can show liability. Next, your lawyer will evaluate the accident’s impact on your life. This includes your injuries, your lost wages, and the accident’s effect on your personal life. Then, your attorney will map out a plan to win all compensation that you are due. Your attorney will manage all communications with insurance companies and with defendants. Every auto accident lawyer at The Reeves Law Group is committed to every client’s recovery, both financially and physically. If you have been in a traffic accident, contact us today.
- How common are traffic accidents in newport beach?
In 2013, Orange County had 16,598 traffic accidents that resulted in people being hurt or killed. This high number of accidents demonstrates how dangerous our roads can be. In fact, Orange County is one of California’s five most dangerous counties to drive in. If you are involved in a crash, make sure that everyone involved gets medical attention. You should call the police to the scene and request a copy of their report. Another helpful step is to collect evidence about the crash.
Get witnesses to write down what they think happened and ask them for their contact information. Also, use your cell phone to take photos of all the details of the accident scene. Finally, contact a skilled car accident attorney. Bringing on a qualified attorney will give you the best opportunity of recovering compensation for your losses.
- Have you been in a traffic accident involving a truck?
Vehicle accidents involving tractor trailers can be scary experiences because of the size and speed of these trucks. Fully loaded semi-trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds. If a vehicle this size suffers a malfunction or the truck driver is careless, the consequences for the victims can be severe. A truck accident attorney representing a crash victim may seek compensation for:
- Medical bills – This amount can cover costs of all past, present, and future medical needs
- Vehicle and property damage – This can cover the damage to your car and your belongings inside the car
- Lost wages – You may be entitled to monetary compensation if you are unable to work and if your future earning capacity is diminished due to the accident
- Punitive damages – A court may choose to punish the driver or the company that employed the driver for especially reckless actions
- Have you been in a motorcycle accident?
Responsibility for a motorcycle accident may lie with many different parties. Frequently, other drivers on the road cause a motorcycle crash. This may be because someone is driving carelessly and didn’t see the motorcyclist when changing lanes or coming to a stop. Sometimes, the manufacturer of the motorcycle or the biker’s safety equipment is to blame. For example, a poorly made bike tire can blow, causing the rider to get into an accident.
Additionally, a government entity can be found liable for a wreck that was caused by a poorly engineered, constructed, or maintained road. With so many parties that could be liable for a crash, a motorcyclist who has been in an accident should retain a skilled motorcycle accident attorney with experience in similar cases.
Recovery of Compensation
An accident can alter the course of your life forever. Our personal injury lawyers have witnessed the devastation that can result from a moment of carelessness and negligence. We know that accident victims can suffer physical, emotional and mental pain and are often burdened with unwanted medical bills and lost income. Our attorneys will advocate for you and strive to recover the compensation you deserve, including lost wages, payment for your medical bills, loss of future income, and pain and suffering.
It should be of utmost importance that you retain a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon after your accident as possible. Accident scenes change and memories fade. An attorney must work quickly to preserve as much evidence as possible. In addition, pursuant to California law, you must file your claim within a certain time frame. Failing to do so will result in denial of your claim, even if you have an otherwise compelling case.
