Common Injuries Sustained in a Car Accident
Did you know that even a minor fender-bender can cause serious physical damage? As car accident lawyers in Orange County, we have seen this a lot. More often than not, people who have been in simple fender benders suffer from some sort of injury due to the accident. The most common being whiplash. Below is a list of common injuries we see due to car accidents:
- Spinal misalignment;
- Broken bones;
And these are just to name a few. Most people are unaware of serious injuries until days or even weeks after their car accident. That is one of the reasons it is so important to get treatment and speak with a car accident lawyer right away.
The Importance of Beginning Your Case Right Away
If you, or someone close to you has been involved in one of the numerous personal injury accidents that Silverthorne Attorneys deals with, it is time to weigh your legal options. This would include a situation that has caused any physical injury due to the negligence of another party. There are other factors we normally address in each individual case as well. Aside from the physical injuries, there will be financial issues, psychological and emotional matters, and strains on your life that you would maybe never expect. As with most negligence cases, there is an allotted amount of time (statute of limitations) following the incident in which you can file a claim, so be sure to attain the help of a bodily injury lawyer as soon as you can.

To help us do our job, please get all of the pertinent paperwork together for the first, no-cost consultation.

Case Types We Handle
Negligence is termed as an action, or actions, that falls below the expected standards of behavior resulting in damages. Also, injury negligence can be when a person, company, or organized group fails to act the proper way that a reasonable person might act under similar circumstances. Examples may be a careless vehicle driver, a dog bite from a leashed dog, or a wet floor in a supermarket causing your injuries. It could even be a branch of local government being irresponsible with the care of sidewalks or a public area like Stanton Central Park.
Many injury cases come from vehicular accidents, as Southern California has more than its share of drivers, automobile, and roadways. There are police reports of injury accidents constantly mentioning Garden Grove Freeway, I-605, I-5, and the Artesia Freeway. Statistically, Stanton has 44 miles of city streets and 19 signalized intersections, all likely areas of potential accidents cased by the negligence of others. Of course, there is the unfortunate results of an injured, blameless victim the majority of the time. If that is you, contact us so we can help.
Practicing Duty of Care
Everyone has a civic responsibility to exercise cautious and reasonable care to ensure the physical safety of others. Furthermore, it is the duty of the law and court system to enforce that right. However, if you injure yourself entirely because of your own negligence, a bodily injury attorney cannot help you. But if you have been injured in an accident where it is another person’s fault and you are not sure where to turn, contact a personal injury lawyer at Silverthorne Attorneys to discuss the accident and your injuries. From there, we can begin negotiations in your favor while you try to get things back to normal as possible. If there is an insurance company involved, which there usually is, the hiring of an injury attorney will show them you are serious in the matter. Please speak with us before making any other decisions or accepting a settlement
How We Approach Your Case
As you gradually heal from your injuries, we go to work for you to get the results. As your arranged counsel, we may send a “demand letter” to an involved insurance company to avoid any court proceedings. The letter is based on your accident, your injuries, financial recovery for lost wages, and medical bills. It is based on your legal rights. The monetary amount also includes the contingency payment we are paid as your representation. You do not have to retain Silverthorne Attorneys upfront-we only get paid if you get a deserved settlement.
The other major area of success is a victory in a trial. We will file the documents and pay the fees. You then become the “plaintiff” versus the “defendant,” the party that caused the accident. We become your plaintiff lawyer, and begin preparing your case for a judge or jury trial. To avoid the trial, many defense attorneys and insurance companies will try to steer your case towards Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This is where your plaintiff attorney engages in mediation talks, arbitration, and settlement conferences with the defense team. Whether negotiations or a trial conclude a settlement, the experience and compassion of Silverthorne Attorneys can persevere as we work for you to achieve a satisfactory resolution. Please contact us today and we will get things started.
