Pasadena Car Accident Lawyer

Dedicated to Holding the Negligent Party Accountable

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 22,000 people are killed, and more than 2 million people are injured in traffic accidents each year in the United States. Most car accidents are caused by someone running a red light or stop sign, speeding, talking on a cell phone or texting, alcohol or drug use, or simply driving in a careless manner.

California Car Accident Statistics

In California alone, the NHTSA reports that there were 3,563 fatalities from car accidents in 2018, 670 of which were specifically in Los Angeles County. In 2017, there were 485,866 reported car crashes in California with Los Angeles County being statistically the most dangerous county for drivers. Even though using a hand-held cell phone while driving has been illegal for many years now, roughly 75% of drivers admit they still use their phones while driving, contributing to these astronomical numbers.

How to Calculate Pain & Suffering Compensation

There are two types of compensation known as "special damages" and "general damages" in the insurance world. Special damages are simply the hard costs that added up as a result of an accident injury. Monetary costs associated with medical bills, property repair or replacement fees, lost wages, and even services you had to hire to help while you were injured all fall under the category of special damages. The total of these can be easily proven with receipts and bills.

General damages, on the other hand, can be a little tricky to calculate. More commonly referred to as compensation for pain & suffering, general damages are most commonly factored into your accident lawsuit in one of two ways.

  • The Per Diem Method. This commonly known Latin phrase translates to "per day" or "for each day" and means simply that; using this method, our Pasadena car accident lawyer will determine a daily value for your injuries. This daily value will then be multiplied by the number of days you were directly affected. If, for example, it is determined that your per diem value is $250 and you missed work due to your injuries for 35 days, then you will be filing a claim for compensation in the amount of $8,750.
  • The Multiple Method. Using this method, the total value of the special damages, or hard costs, will be calculated, then multiplied by anywhere from two to five, depending on the severity of your pain & suffering. For example, if you were in a car accident that broke your leg and smashed the entire driver's side of your car deeming it totaled, your medical bills and car replacement costs might total up to $12,000. As a result of the accident, you now have trouble sleeping and a large scar on your leg. To consider the value of your pain and suffering in the lawsuit, the hard costs are multiplied by three. This means you would file a claim requesting $36,000 in compensation.

What Caused Your Car Accident?

As a densely populated county with millions of drivers on the road every day, car accidents are common throughout Pasadena and Los Angeles County. Having more cars on the road only increases your risk of being in a car accident, which is why the LA area has one of the highest numbers of traffic collisions in the nation. While some accidents are simply unpredictable and due to unfortunate circumstances, the majority of car crashes are due to driver negligence.

Top causes of car accidents include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Tailgating
  • Reckless driving and speeding
  • Mobile phone use and distracted driving - texting, making calls, playing on apps, streaming videos, etc.
  • Defective car parts
  • Poor road designs and defective highways

    How Can Hiring a Pasadena Car Accident Attorney Help Your Case?

    You may be rattled after a car accident, so trying to handle an injury case while also trying to recover from your injuries is a daunting task for anyone. Getting legal counsel is not required after an accident, but hiring an experienced car accident lawyer allows you to take a step back and focus on recovering while someone else advocates for you.

    California Statute of Limitations

    California has a statute of limitations of 2 years for car accident injury claims. Sometimes insurance companies will stale and won't settle your claim before that time period. Our Pasadena car accident attorney will continue negotiations on your behalf. Our firm will make sure things are taken care of in a timely manner and that you are granted the maximum compensation that you need to fully recover.

    • Aghavni proved herself to be a worthy adversary to the opposing counsel.

      “My experience with KP Law was great. Aghavni proved herself to be a worthy adversary to the opposing counsel. Aghavni and Darrel did a wonderful job on all the research and prep work for my case. They were extremely detailed and found information which was difficult to obtain . The opposing company was a multi-billion dollar company, but Aghavni and Darrel never caved in under the pressure. At times it was certainly a David and Goliath scenario, but they stood up to the big firm. I would certainly recommend them for any product liability or personal injury case. By the way we did win and the results were much better than expected. Thank you Aghavni and Darrel.”
