Searching for Legal Help After an ATV Accident
One of the best things about living in Southern California is that if you drive for up to two hours in various directions you can reach the seemingly endless ocean, towering mountains, breathtaking forests, quiet deserts, and virtually any other landscape that you could find in most of the rest of the United States. As a result, recreational opportunities in Southern California abound. In Southern California, you can boat, surf, swim, ski, hike, camp, and ride virtually any type of recreational vehicle that suits your fancy. Engaging in any recreational activity can be dangerous. With that said, few recreational vehicle experiences result in more accidents than boats and ATVs do.
If you have recently been injured in an ATV accident, you may be wondering where to turn for help. That is understandable, given that not every personal injury firm represents the interests of ATV injury victims. Thankfully, the knowledgeable Los Angeles, CA ATV accidents lawyer team at Cohen Injury Firm understands how to represent the interests of ATV injury victims both efficiently and effectively. While no attorney can guarantee the outcome of a legal concern, understand that if you choose to work with our firm, we will do everything that we can to secure a favorable result in your case.
What if Victim Caused the ATV Accident?
You may still have legal options available to you even if you believe that you were totally at fault for your ATV accident. California is what is known as a pure comparative negligence state. This means that even injury victims who are 99% to blame for what happened to them remain entitled to seek compensation from others who contributed to the causes of their harm. As a result, you may be entitled to significant compensation even if you were primarily at fault for your accident.
“But,” you may be thinking, “What if I was totally at fault for what happened to me?” this is a legitimate question and a legitimate concern. It is important to understand that it is very difficult to discern fault in an ATV accident until an experienced attorney has thoroughly investigated the details surrounding the crash. Meaning, you may be under the impression that you are fully responsible for what happened to you but it may also turn out that a defective ATV part, something defective with the design of the vehicle, or a whole host of other factors could have contributed to the cause of your accident that would render you in a strong position to hold others liable for the harm that they caused. As a result, you’ll want to refrain from making assumptions about the strengths and weaknesses of your case until an attorney at Cohen Injury Firm has explored the details of your case and provided you with personalized legal guidance accordingly.
Preparing for a Legal Consultation
Before you arrive at our firm for your risk-free legal consultation, you’ll want to take some time to gather some information and to jot down some notes for your reference during the meeting. Specifically, you’ll want to write down all of your questions and concerns so that you can glance at them in an instant and know whether all of your issues have been fully addressed during the course of your consultation. The last thing we want is for you to walk out of our offices unsure of whether you are in a position to make informed decisions about your legal options.
Additionally, you’ll want to gather any information about your circumstances that will help us to understand exactly what you’re facing right now. For example, if you have medical records from an emergency room visit that you made after your accident, you’ll want to bring a copy of those records with you to your consultation. Similarly, if you have information about how much time off of work you’ve taken to recover, you have pictures of the accident scene, or the contact information of any insurance adjusters who have spoken with you so far, you’ll want to bring that information along with you as well. The more detail that we can understand upfront, the more personalized we can make our guidance when we are explaining your rights and options under the law
