Which Types of Personal Injury Cases in Livermore Do You Handle?
We handle a wide range of personal injury accident cases here at Sally Morin. Our Livermore, CA attorneys have years of experience and are dedicated to helping each and every one of our clients get the best possible outcome. We can help you get the high-value settlement you deserve.
Some of the personal injury cases we handle include:
There is no denying that California has some of the most congested roadways in the country. This means we see a lot of car accidents. If you or a loved one are injured in a Livermore car accident, one of our attorneys can assist you. We’ll guide you through your case and ensure you get the full and fair settlement you deserve.
Did you know that California is the birthplace of ridesharing apps like Uber? While this might make getting around town more convenient, it does contribute to traffic congestion. Uber accident cases are also more complex than other car accident cases. So make sure you work with an attorney with experience handling Uber accidents.
Motorcycle riding is quite popular in California. With the beautiful weather and the ability to lane split, what’s not to enjoy? Unfortunately, with an increase in motorcycle riding comes an increase in motorcycle accidents. If you are involved in a Livermore motorcycle accident, one of our personal injury attorneys can help.
Catastrophic injury accidents
There are personal injury cases, and then there are catastrophic injury cases. In a catastrophic injury case, the injuries are very severe and even life-altering or fatal. Most people who suffer from catastrophic injuries after an accident are permanently impaired or disabled for the rest of their life. To make sure you get the compensation you deserve for such pain and suffering, work with an experienced California attorney.
California is known for having very walkable cities and neighborhoods. Unfortunately, this means we also see many pedestrian accidents. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, let us help you navigate your claim. Whether you are a resident or a tourist, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Of course, with such beautiful weather year-round and more eco-conscious residents, California also is a very popular state for bicycle riding. Many people in the Bay Area, Livermore included, ride their bikes for fun and for commuting. But bicycle accidents and injuries can be devastating. Get in touch with one of our experienced bicycle accident attorneys if you need help with your case.
Dangerous Roadways and Intersections in Vacaville
The East Bay Area, particularly Alameda County—which is where Livermore sits—is home to some of the most dangerous roads in the state, even the country. Over the past few years, fatal car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle & pedestrian accidents have increased.
While some might blame the construction of the roads themselves as well as traffic flow and major congestion, local transportation experts believe it’s more the result of unsafe driver behavior. Traffic congestion is part of the problem, but it is ultimately the drivers who resort to unsafe driving due to their frustration with traffic, which just makes the situation worse.
One strip of highway, in particular, tends to see the most accidents in the area, and that is Interstate 80. But Interstate 880 and 580 can also be problematic.
What if I’m Not Sure Whether I Have a Case?
It’s not uncommon for accident victims to wonder whether they have a valid case or not. Unfortunately, there is often no straightforward answer, as having a case can depend on individual circumstances.
But we understand the frustration. Why put yourself through the stress of filing a claim if nothing is going to come of it?
While various factors can affect whether someone has a valid case or not, it’s important to understand that if you were injured due to someone else’s negligence, it’s likely worth your time to pursue a claim. If someone else’s negligence caused you harm, you have a right to take action against them to recover compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost income, property damage, and more.
Even though compensation is never guaranteed, you are more likely to win a full and fair settlement when you work with an experienced personal injury attorney.
There are three primary ways you could recover compensation after an accident in Livermore, CA:
- Filing a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company
- Filing a lawsuit in court
- Negotiating a private settlement out of court
By working with an experienced Livermore attorney, you can demonstrate the legitimacy of your injuries, prove that someone else was negligent and, therefore responsible, and request reimbursement for medical expenses, loss of income, and other damages. The team at Sally Morin can assist you and ensure you get the full and fair compensation you deserve.
What Kind of Compensation Could I Recover?
Just as we can’t guarantee you have a sound case without first evaluating your individual situation carefully, we also cannot guarantee a certain amount of compensation. Each case is unique and varied. Numerous factors can play a role in how much money you deserve to be awarded.
In most cases, the damages you suffer will play a significant role in what kind of compensation you could get. And there are two different categories of damages:
- Special damages: Your special damages may include car loss, property damage, medical bills, and lost earnings.
- General damages: Your general damages are more abstract and may include pain, inconvenience, distress, loss of hobbies, and loss of a lifestyle with your loved ones.
If you have been in an accident and are suffering losses that are affecting your life and your finances, it’s important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you reach out, the sooner your case can be resolved. At Sally Morin, we will do everything within our power to ensure the best possible outcome.
Living in Livermore, CA
As a suburb of Oakland, CA and sitting reasonably close to San Francisco and San Jose, Livermore has much to offer its residents. It is a densely populated town with over 90,000 people and has excellent ratings for diversity and public schools.
Young professionals will enjoy the Livermore area with its many job opportunities and an average income of around $130,000, which is much higher than the national average of $65,000. The cost of living in Livermore, however, is less than ideal, with an average home value of over $800,000 and average rent of over $2,000. But this is to be expected on the west coast when you live in or near major cities.
What Livermore lacks in affordable housing, however, it makes up for with beautiful weather, an abundance of job opportunities, and plenty of activities, dining, and entertainment. Wineries, for example, are quite abundant in Livermore as it is part of California’s oldest wine regions.
The city is also home to some world-renowned science and tech centers, such as the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Sandia National Laboratories. There is plenty of technology, innovation, and research in the area.
The arts, culture, and heritage scene in Livermore is also quite strong with the Historic Downtown Livermore and a 500-seat performing arts center. The city is known for its superior entertainment, shopping, dining, and cultural options.
Overall, Livermore is an excellent place to live.
