Bakersfield Car Accident Attorneys

Pursue Compensatory Damages & Protect Your Quality of Life

Distracted, intoxicated, and reckless drivers are responsible for over 6 million traffic collisions in the United States each year. Tragically, the number of motor vehicle accidents in California increases on an annual basis, leaving thousands of residents seriously injured and permanently disabled. Because their injuries prevent them from working, a good number of these survivors will be forced to file for bankruptcy just to maintain their standard of living.

If you’re concerned about your escalating injury-related expenses, contact the Bakersfield car accident lawyers at Campbell Whitten. Our experienced personal injury team takes great pride in providing informed guidance and personalized legal services to the wrongfully injured of California. You can rely on us to investigate your case, identify the negligent parties, and fiercely represent your interests both in and out of court. With our help, you can recover compensatory damages that alleviate your financial losses and safeguard your quality of life.

If you require legal assistance, contact our Bakersfield car accident lawyers at (661) 334-3000 or by filling out an online form.

Pursuing Damages After an auto accident in Bakersfield

A successful lawsuit can yield compensation that accounts for your existing and projected medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, and various non-economic damages. However, you’re going to need a trial-tested Bakersfield car accident lawyer by your side if your goal is to secure a beneficial settlement or verdict. Our attorneys can maximize your claim by proving that the defendant’s negligent actions are responsible for your injuries and any coinciding financial losses.

A negligent driver can be held liable for the following injuries and more:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Head injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Concussions and/or contusions
  • Neck or spinal cord damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Psychological or cognitive disorders

It’s important to note that the defendant’s insurance company may try to undermine your claim with the singular goal of reducing their potential losses. For instance, a claims adjuster may call you after the collision and trick you into admitting partial liability. If that tactic fails, the representative may prey on your inexperience and pressure you into accepting an inadequate settlement. While payout may seem beneficial at first glance, it likely won’t cover the entirety of your injury-related expenses, leaving you to suffer financially in the future.

Fortunately, you can turn to Bakersfield car accident attorneys at Campbell Whitten. Our tenacious legal team can represent your interests and negotiate with insurance company representatives on your behalf. We can counter the insurance company’s initial settlement offer and, if necessary, take your case to court to make sure you recover the compensatory damages your injuries warrant.
