Car Accidents are Frequent in Victorville

Situated in the southwestern end of the Mojave Desert, Victorville has long served as a gateway city for travelers from the greater Los Angeles area on their way to the vast Mojave Desert.

Over the last two decades, however, the city has grown into a major suburban center, with a population increasing from roughly 64,000 in 2000 to over 122,000 in 2020.

As traffic in and through the Victorville area has increased, car accidents in the area have also increased. In 2018 alone, Victorville recorded 469 vehicle crashes, 18 of which were fatal.

If you have been involved in a Victorville car accident, the personal injury attorneys at PARRIS Law Firm have the experience and expertise to fight for your rights. With PARRIS fighting in their corner, some of our clients have received seven-, eight-, and nine-figure verdicts to help them recover from their accident.

Why Choose PARRIS Law Firm After My Car Accident?

When you’ve been injured in an accident, your life may be knocked entirely off-course. Your injuries may force you to miss work, which reduces your means to pay for the medical treatment you need after your accident. On top of this, the collision may leave you emotionally traumatized, which may affect your ability to return to life before the accident.

In these situations, a legal advocate can be an invaluable resource to help you restore balance to your family and your life. This is why PARRIS Law Firm works to protect the rights of the innocent.

How do I know if I need an attorney after a car accident?

Following a car accident, it’s perfectly natural to want to settle your case as quickly and easily as possible. But sometimes settling a claim quickly does not result in the best outcome for you and your family.

See, when you are involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be compensated by the at-fault driver’s insurance company. An adjuster will usually make you an offer in the days, weeks, or months following the incident.

But here’s the catch. That settlement offer is oftentimes not enough to cover the true cost of your recovery.

An insurance company focuses on reducing the amount it pays out in claims to boost profits. When their insured is responsible for your injuries, the insurance company may act deceitfully—that is, in bad faith—to reduce the amount they pay you. Some of their tactics may include offering you an absurdly low settlement very quickly, unreasonably delaying your claim, or denying it outright.

Unfortunately, we’ve seen firsthand how insurance companies can use these bad faith tactics to take advantage of unrepresented claimants. Hiring an attorney who knows the industry is the best way to protect your rights.

PARRIS has been fighting insurance companies on behalf of clients for nearly four decades. Our firm has the resources, experience, and determination to fight for you—and win.

The PARRIS Track Record of Victory

When you’re choosing an attorney to represent you after a car accident, their track record matters. You deserve an advocate you can trust completely, who will fight tooth and nail for you and your family.

At PARRIS, our track record speaks for itself. Here are some of our clients’ stories:

  • One PARRIS client was driving his pickup in the desert when a distracted driver ran a stop sign, causing a T-bone accident. The pickup rolled over multiple times before skidding to a stop on its side, leaving our client with severe neck and back injuries. Though his injuries will require medical care for the rest of his life, the at-fault driver’s insurance company refused to cooperate with our investigation and adequately compensate our client. We fought the case all the way to trial, eventually securing a $120 million jury verdict on his behalf.
  • Two brothers suffered catastrophic injuries when a negligent semi-truck driver struck their vehicle head-on on a California highway. They were driving through a construction zone when the truck driver drifted out of his lane, hitting our clients at 55 mph. Though the trucking company tried to avoid paying the compensation the brothers deserved, PARRIS fought fearlessly for them, eventually securing a $55.6 million jury verdict on their behalf.
  • A motorcyclist was riding along Highway 138 in Pinon Hills, CA when a car made a left turn in front of him, causing a catastrophic motorcycle accident. The man received a horrific brain injury that left him bedridden and ventilator-dependent for the rest of his life. Despite this, the at-fault driver’s insurance company acted in bad faith, refusing to accept settlement offers on time. After fiercely fighting for our client, the insurance company eventually settled out of court for $15 million. Additionally, Caltrans was found partially at fault for the accident: 10 accidents had taken place at this very intersection before this event, yet Caltrans took no action to make the intersection safer. After fighting for our client in trial, the jury awarded our client $31.5 million.

What can I recover when I hire a car accident attorney?

When we pursue a case against a negligent driver, there are certain injuries for which we try to recover the costs. Some of these injuries are immediate and obvious, while others may take time to develop.

Here are the types of damages that you can recover for under California law:

  • Medical bills, including hospital visits, prescriptions, and specialists;
  • Property damage;
  • Lost wages, including future lost wages and loss of earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering from your injuries or life circumstances after your accident; and
  • Loss of companionship for your loved ones (legally referred to as “loss of consortium”), among other forms of recovery.

When you are injured, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. However, the earlier you contact PARRIS, the better we’ll be able to protect your rights.

Don’t wait to seek justice. The attorneys are PARRIS Law Firm will fight to restore balance to your family.
