We’ll help you get compensation for your losses and damages.


At Abogados de Accidentes Ahora we work primarily on car accident cases. Our track record over the years has resulted in our impeccable reputation for obtaining maximum compensation for our clients after being the victim of a car accident.

We fight to defend our clients from the aggressive and unfair tactics of the insurance companies. Without proper legal representation, victims do not receive the fair financial compensation they deserve.

Place your trust in our talented team while you focus on your recovery.

Medical attention

The amount of your settlement relies on the extent of the damage incurred. To ensure fair compensation, having a detailed report on the progression of your health condition is essential.

By neglecting medical attention, you not only put your health at risk but also jeopardize your family's financial well-being. It is not uncommon for the pain and suffering resulting from an accident to manifest months later.

If you accept the insurance settlement without seeking medical evaluation and later discover a delayed injury, you will be unable to file a new insurance claim. This means you will be personally responsible for any additional medical expenses incurred.

Fortunately, we have a network of medical experts willing to provide treatment without requiring upfront payment from you. This ensures that you receive the necessary care without further financial burden.


A car accident can be traumatic and the consequences can be devastating. If you or someone you care about has been in a car accident, it is important to know that you have rights and options to obtain compensation for the damages and losses suffered.

An accident attorney can help you navigate the legal process and ensure that your rights are protected.

Some of the Ways a Lawyer Can Help You:

Determine fault for the car accident

When you are a victim in a collision, it is important to establish who was responsible for the accident. If you played no role in causing the crash, do not accept fault. This is crucial to start your personal injury claim.

Expert advice and experience in legal matters

With expert advice and experience in legal matters, our team understands the tactics employed by insurance companies to pressure you into hastily accepting a settlement offer that may not serve your best interests.

However, as a victim, you have rights, and by obtaining legal representation, you gain access to winning strategies.

Our lawyers possess extensive knowledge of the laws that safeguard auto accident victims, equipping us to navigate the complexities of insurance policies, including clauses that impact your claim based on the accident's circumstances.

It is crucial to protect yourself and secure your future by seeking the assistance of an attorney.

Manages the legal process and details of your claim

Car Accident Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), while Americans drove less in 2020 due to the pandemic, NHTSA estimated that 38,680 people died in car crashes, the highest projected number of fatalities since 2007.

This represents a 7.2% increase from the 36,096 deaths reported in 2019. NHTSA’s analysis shows that the top behaviors that caused this increase are: impaired driving, speeding, and not wearing seat belts.

Common Injuries
Resulting from Car Accidents

Even minor car accidents can cause injuries which can lead to serious problems. When a car accident is more severe, the injuries can be very disabling and require expensive medical treatments such as surgery and long-term rehabilitation, resulting in large medical bills.

Although each car accident has its own unique circumstances, the following injuries tend to occur more frequently:

  • Concussion
  • Whiplash
  • Head and spine injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Blunt chest trauma
  • Bruises
  • Burns
  • Death

In many car accident cases, liability falls only between two drivers. Generally, the fault will lie with the driver who violated a traffic law causing the collision.


Rear-end accidents are prevalent and can potentially inflict significant damage and cause permanent spine, head, and neck injuries. Frequently, these collisions may not initially exhibit symptoms but gradually can lead to severe injuries.


These catastrophic accidents involve two vehicles that are likely traveling at a high rate of speed directly into each other.


Some vehicles are simply more prone to rollover than others, such as SUVs and heavy trucks. A rollover can cause serious injury and even death.


These happen when the sides of two vehicles make contact while traveling in the same direction, usually due to improper lane changes or merging.


These are accidents when a car driver leaves the roadway and hits an object such as a tree, light pole, or sign.


When determining the value of a car accident settlement, several factors come into play. These factors are carefully considered during the calculation process for compensation and may include:

Did you Know?

You do not have to be a legal resident of the United States to receive compensation for your injuries in a car accident.


Step 1: Immediately after the accident, do the following.:

1. Move to a safe location if possible and contact emergency services

2. Take photos of the vehicles involved, the accident scene, and any visible damages

3. Report the accident with the police; provide them with accurate and detailed information about what happened

4. Exchange contact information with all parties involved

5. Seek medical Attention, even if you don't believe you are seriously injured

Step 2: Contact the insurance company & a lawyer

Consult with an experienced car accident attorney at the onset, even before speaking to your insurance company. Depending on the circumstances and severity of the accident, it may be beneficial to consult with a personal injury attorney. They can guide you through the legal process, protect your rights, and help maximize your potential compensation.

If you need our legal advice, call us at (800) 417-8034. We will be able to tell you exactly whether we can take your case and give you an estimate of your settlement.
An insurance company's approach to handling a claim is to do two things:

1. Minimize costs: The insurer will do everything possible to settle the claim before it goes to court and for the lowest amount possible.

2. Manage risk: The insurer will be relieved of any further liability in connection with your injuries and losses. For example, if complications result after you have accepted a settlement, you will not be able to seek additional compensation.

Step 3: Accept a settlement offer (or take the case to court)

1. Collect all necessary documentation related to the accident, including medical records, repair estimates, towing receipts, and any other relevant expenses.

2. Work with your insurance company and any other involved parties' insurance companies or your attorney to provide requested information and cooperate with their investigations.

3. Negotiate a settlement offer or pursue litigation to obtain fair compensation. Your attorney, if hired, will represent your interests and handle negotiations or legal proceedings on your behalf.

Seeking Medical Treatment and Finding a Car Accident Lawyer

Following a car accident, the most important thing you can do is to seek medical attention immediately. Not only will you get a timely diagnosis and treatment for your injuries, but you will also create a record of when and how your injuries occurred. This is incredibly helpful when filing a claim.

Be sure to keep track of your medical bills during this time. Your attorney will use them to put together a claim for compensation. While you are in the process of recovering from your injuries, you can start looking for an attorney. Most car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay any fees upfront and only collect compensation if a settlement or a verdict is reached.

Accident Investigation

Once you hire an attorney, the process of investigating your accident will begin. This may involve gathering and analyzing the accident report, witness statements, medical records and other evidence.

At the same time, your attorney will begin conducting legal research on your case to build a strong case. He or she will show that the other driver is at fault and justify that you are entitled to the amount of compensation suggested.

Claim letter and settlement negotiations

With the information collected during the investigation, your attorney will draft a claim letter to the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

A claim letter states the facts of the case, the legal reason why the other driver is at fault and makes a claim for compensation. This usually begins the negotiation process, as the insurance company will likely counter with a settlement offer of its own.

The vast majority of personal injury cases (97%) are settled out of court. The chances of settling your case without having to file a lawsuit increase when working with a highly experienced auto accident attorney.

Filing a lawsuit

When fault is disputed or when the insurer questions the severity of your injuries, your attorney will likely advise you that the best course of action is to file a lawsuit.

After a lawsuit is filed, the timeline is governed in part by the deadlines set by the court.


When the case moves to this stage, each side seeks information about the case. Discovery can take many forms:

  • Cross-examination
  • Written questions that the other side must answer.
  • Requests for admissions: written statements that the other side must admit or deny.
  • Depositions: oral questions asked under oath to a witness in the case.
  • Defense medical examination: in personal injury cases, the insurance company may request that you submit to an examination with a physician of their choice.

Settlement negotiations often continue during the pre-trial phase. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, then the judge overseeing the case may order mediation, which is a type of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

In mediation, a neutral third party (often a retired judge or an experienced attorney) reviews the case and listens to the arguments of both sides. The mediator then tries to help the parties reach an agreement.


If the parties cannot reach an agreement, the case goes to trial. The length of the trial depends on the number of witnesses and the complexity of the issues in dispute.

It can last up to two years. If the outcome is not favorable, you may be able to appeal the decision in certain circumstances.

Finally, if you win at trial or settle during mediation, you will be reimbursed for your recovery. This usually happens within 30 days of the verdict/mediation.

Did You Know There Is a Time Limit to File a Car Accident Claim?

The statute of limitations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and Texas is two years for personal injury cases. This means that you have two years from the date of your car accident or from the date injuries were discovered to file a lawsuit.


Although your insurance company will probably offer you some compensation, it is usually a very small amount that will not be enough to cover the lasting damages and future medical costs of car accident injuries.

When you hire an attorney, you have the opportunity to get fair compensation as we’ll seek compensation for things beyond the immediate costs you face today.

Costs such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Future medical bills

Proving driver negligence liability in car accidents can be difficult.

In car accident cases, the burden of proof is on the plaintiff, meaning you must establish that the negligent driver was at fault.

To prove liability for an auto accident, you will need to show:

  • The driver had a duty to exercise reasonable care on the road.
  • The driver was negligent and caused the accident.
  • You suffered physical injuries due to the driver’s negligence.


The average personal injury settlement amount in a car accident lawsuit can vary significantly depending on various factors such as the severity of the injuries, medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other damages. It is challenging to provide an exact average settlement amount as each case is unique.

Settlement amounts in car accident lawsuits can range from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars. Some cases may result in settlements in the low to mid-five-figure range, while severe or catastrophic injury cases involving permanent disabilities or significant financial losses may result in settlements in the six or seven-figure range.

After you and your attorney accept a settlement offer, the insurance company will send a settlement check to your attorney. Here’s what follows.

First: deposit into an escrow account

The attorney will deposit the settlement check into an escrow account, where it should remain while the bank clears the funds.

Second: Lien Resolution

If you owe any outstanding liens, your attorney will have to hold your check for a longer period of time.

A lien refers to any outstanding debt you may have with certain entities, related to your case or other charges against you. If you have outstanding liens, your attorney cannot release your check until they have been paid with settlement funds.

Another debt that will have to be paid from the settlement funds is to the doctors who treated you during your recovery process.

Third: mailing your check

Once all fees, outstanding liens and costs associated with your case have been paid, the attorney will distribute the remaining funds to you.
