Every driver on the road in California has a duty to follow the rules of the road and to operate their vehicle with reasonable care. When drivers breach this duty and negligently cause an accident, victims of harm are entitled to compensation. California is an “at fault” state, meaning that when auto accidents occur, the party at fault must pay damages to the other party or parties involved. Car expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering are all compensable.
Oceanside auto accident attorney Michael Gerald Hemming represents car, motorcycle, and truck accident victims in Southern California. If you have been in accident, Michael can help you get the compensation you deserve. Call (800) 926-4535 if you would like to discuss your case.
What Hemming Law, A.P.C., Can Do For You
Attorney Michael Hemming offers thorough and effective service to each of his clients. If you have been injured in an accident, Michael can:
- Help you understand your legal rights and options. Every case is different. Michael can investigate the facts of you case and help you understand your legal rights and options.
- Collect the necessary evidence for your claim. Auto accident cases are often highly complex. Proving fault can require evidence from the scene of the wreck, eyewitness testimony, and the police report if there was one. Proving damages usually requires medical documentation and the presentation of expert eyewitness testimony. Properly collecting and presenting the necessary evidence is critical to the success of a claim.
- Negotiate with the opposing party and the insurance company. Attorney Michael Hemming understands how to effectively negotiate on behalf of his clients to maximize settlement amounts.
- Vigorously represent you at trial if necessary. Nearly all cases settle before they go to trial. It is usually in the best interests of both parties to come to a fair but agreeable settlement. But sometimes, defendants simply refuse to pay a fair amount to an accident victim. When this is the case, Hemming Law vigorously represents injury victims in court to get victims the compensation they deserve.
