HOW MUCH IS YOUR CAR ACCIDENT CASE WORTH?
The California car accident attorneys at Nadrich & Cohen with offices throughout California can tell you first hand that it is nearly impossible to tell a new client or new inquiry the ultimate value of their injury claim before we know all the injuries and all medical treatment has been completed with all bills received.
We can tell you the value of your injury claim is based on the following:
- Cause of the accident. That's called liability. In order to assist us in determining liability, we obtain the police report, obtain witness statements, and get pictures if there are any;
- The duration and amount of medical treatment and the nature and extent of your injuries and the amount of your medical bills.
- Whether there are any future medical costs or treatments;
- Whether there will be any future lost wages and future medical treatments such as future surgery;
- Where did the accident occur and who is the at-fault insurance company.
- How much damage did the car suffer?
The first thing we do when we begin a new car accident claims to obtain a police report. If there is no police report, we immediately go out and take pictures and videos of the damage to all vehicles involved, including skid marks. We obtain photos of our client's injuries, including bruises and scarring to show what occurred. If there are any eyewitnesses, we take their statements.
The next thing we do is to recommend for you to go to the doctor right away. The question is often whether our client (the injured claimant) sought medical attention immediately or soon after the accident. You do not want to delay your medical treatment because that will give your insurance company an argument that you were not really injured.
Always in a car accident claim there is a question if the medical bills are reasonable and necessary.
There is also the factor of future medical treatment which may be necessary for your injuries caused by the accident. That can increase the value of the claim.
We always ask (and the insurance company will as well) whether our client (injured victim) has injured the same parts of their body that they had previously injured. This is called pre-existing injuries and is a separate area of dispute with the insurance company. We know that your injuries from an accident will cause an exacerbation or worsening of the original injury. The insurance company will try to say that the injuries are not from the accident, but from an earlier injury and therefore they should not be financially responsible.
We determine whether or not our client missed work, and we obtain those lost wages as part of the claim. That, therefore, increases the value of the claim.
Unfortunately, some insurance companies are better than others, and some insurance adjusters are better than others. Some insurance companies have a reputation of low-balling or making ridiculously low offers or denying liability outright even when their liability is clear because that's the way they do business. We know that we have to fight them until they ultimately see the light of day and are willing to settle with our claimant. If they are not, we will then try the case against their insured. Insurance adjusters are different from each other, and some will offer more to settle a case than others.
All of the above is something that you have to consider if you want to put a value on your accident claim. The California car accident attorneys Jeffrey Nadrich and Nadrich & Cohen will go over every factor on each case and makes certain that everything is done correctly so that our clients car accident claim is established in the best interest of our client.

THE MOST COMMON CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES
As Los Angeles, Irvine, Bakersfield, Downtown LA, Fresno, Long Beach, Oakland, Oxnard, Pomona, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernadino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Rosa, Tracy, Torrance, Temecula Car Accident lawyers we have handled over 5000 car accident cases.
Because of our success, we have offices for car accident cases throughout California from San Diego to the Northern California border. Although we see many different injuries caused by car accidents the most common injuries are as follows:
- Back: The back always suffers from a car accident due to the amount of force placed on the back from the trauma of the accident impact. Unfortunately, there is nothing but time and therapy that can resolve a strained back. We have had many cases where back symptoms continued even after three or four months of therapy. At that point, further medical providers are necessary such as orthopedic surgeons and even neurosurgeons. Always keep your doctor advised of your back condition so that he or she can note it in the records and provide you with the best treatment. Ninety percent (90%) of our cases involve some back injury.
- Neck: Neck injuries are as common as back injuries. It is because of whiplash. Whiplash is the whipsaw effect to the neck from the trauma of a car accident. Whiplash can also develop into severe headaches that can last for a long time. Of course, tell your doctor everything that is going on with you medically and always keep them informed your physical condition. Whiplash also affects the back, spinal cord and can be a reason for cervical disc protrusions or spine related problems, which could lead to numbness and tingling down the arms.
- Arms and legs: We often see limb issues concerning the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knees, or ankles, due to an automobile wreck. We have had many cases where the knee is pushed into the steering wheel or dash, causing significant knee trauma leading to the need for surgery. We have also had many cases of an ulnar entrapment neuropathy, where, due to the impact the elbow smashes into the door causing an entrapment of the ulnar nerve in the elbow leading to Numbness and tingling in the finger. Oftentimes, these patients are treated by an orthopedic surgeon and neurologist for testing and diagnosis.
- Rotator cuff tears: We have had many cases involving fractures to ligaments and tissues in the wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, and shoulders.
- Head: We see concussions in severe impacts. A concussion, or a bruised brain is when there has been some significant impact to the brain or skull. The effect of this injury is fatigue, headaches, feeling nauseous, dizzy, lack of concentration, difficult sleep patterns, even seizures and/or memory loss. These injuries are difficult to diagnose. You must contact a doctor if you have any head injury symptoms.
The above are conditions we see in accidents on a regular basis. Our auto accident clients will always have at least one of the above injuries.

CLOSED-HEAD INJURY | BRAIN INJURY CASE
HOW WE AT NADRICH & COHEN PROVE A CLOSED-HEAD INJURY OR BRAIN INJURY CASE
We have many times successfully proven closed-head injury cases which are in reality mild traumatic brain injury cases. Most of our mild brain injury cases involve no initial diagnosis of a brain injury, no documented loss of consciousness, but continued complaints of fatigue, headaches, insomnia, nightmares, lack of concentration, memory lapses, muscle pain, bad temper, etc.
We can prove that a permanent brain injury can and did occur from any time period of a loss of consciousness no matter how short resulting in lack of memory of the event of the accident, or cognitive neurological deficits.
As California brain injury lawyers, we have shown permanent brain injuries when our clients have suffered the following:
- Headaches of a different severity;
- Speech problems;
- The inability to understand critical thinking as before;
- Lack of concentration;
- Impaired memory;
- Loss of temper;
- Fatigue and muscle and joint pain;
- Abnormal sleep patterns;
- Not the same sense of smell or ability to taste food as before;
- Increased depression;
- Inability to organize as before;
- Problems of balance and dexterity;
- Becoming claustrophobic and anti-social.
In order to do this successfully, we gather witnesses to show (people in our clients' life before and after the accident) the difference in the quality of our clients' life both before and after the accident. We will show that the head injury symptoms our client suffers from was from the accident.
We would then go to the analysis of the vehicles (if it was a car crash), and study what the mechanisms of the injury were so we can show how the brain was impacted in some manner, such as a broken windshield or broken seat back, etc.
We use vocational experts who have brain injury experience who can discuss the loss of wages.
These are some of the ways we establish a closed head injury mild traumatic brain injury case.
If you or a loved one suffered anything related to the above from an accident, please contact one of our intake specialists at Nadrich & Cohen by calling us at 1-800-718-4658. Because of our success, we have 24 offices throughout California. We have an office near you.
We are contingency lawyers, which means there is no fee until we first obtain a settlement or recovery from the at-fault parties.

How We Handle An Auto Accident Case
If you or a loved one was injured in an automobile accident (or truck accident) you probably have never been involved in a lawsuit before. We are going to show you in this article what to expect. We have handled thousands of automobile lawsuits and this article will be an overview of what occurs. If you would like, you may speak to a case intake specialist at Nadrich & Cohen at any of our 18 offices who will answer any specific questions you have concerning your auto or truck accident. Contact us at 1-800-718-4658.
It begins with a lawsuit for personal injury against the car or truck.
We include this with the summons. The lawsuit is a complaint which lays out all the claims that our clients (the plaintiff) have against the responsible party (or the defendant). That is the person being sued. The purpose of the Summons is to advise the defendant who the plaintiff is, the court and how long the defendant has to respond to the car or truck accident complaint.
The defendant has to answer within a certain time (usually 30 days). His or her answer must include what portions of our client's complaint the defendant may agree with or what he disagrees with or contests. The answer will also include any defenses the defendant has and whether or not the defendant has any claims against either the plaintiff or a third party. If the defendant has claims against the plaintiff, the defendant files a counter claim or cross complaint against a third party. The counter claim would be against the plaintiff and the cross complaint against a third party.
The defendant can also file a motion requesting that the judge dismiss our client's complaint. In a standard motion to dismiss defendants can raise certain defenses including lack of jurisdiction over the subject matter, lack of jurisdiction over the particular defendant, that the service of the lawsuit was invalid or insufficient or that the documents were not technically correct and failure to state a claim in which the plaintiff can repay.
Sometimes the defendant does not answer and we take a default judgment against him or her.
Most of the time will be spent in discovery in litigation. Discovery is when the defendant and the plaintiff give to each other relevant information, paperwork and documents which are related to the claim.
This discovery can either be written questions or interrogatories, document production or documents, requests for admissions or requesting certain admissions to admit certain facts and depositions which are formally transcribed sworn statements taken in front of a court reporter. When a discovery dispute arises we often bring a motion such as a motion to compel the other side to provide information. Ultimately, discovery ends and we are ready for trial or the defendant files a motion for summary judgment which means that we have to prove that there are material facts in dispute so that the case can move forward either based on facts in dispute or the law.
Ultimately, we get to the point where the court orders us to go to some sort of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as a mediation court negotiated settlement or even a binding arbitration which we may agree to with the defendant's insurance company. If we do not reach agreement at that point (95% of cases are resolved by this point) then we continue preparing for trial. The case is settled either right before the first day of trial or a small percent of cases we try and obtain a verdict for our clients.
The above procedure can take as much as 15 months.
We move these cases very quickly as we are contingency lawyers and do not receive any fee until we obtain a recovery. You have our commitment that if we represent you and if your case goes into a lawsuit (only 10% of our cases ever do) that we will move very quickly so that you can obtain a financial recovery as soon as possible.
Please contact one of our auto intake case specialists at 1-800-718-4658. Because of our success we have 24 offices throughout California. You can also complete the email inquiry on the right.

HOW WE WILL WIN YOUR CASE IN LITIGATION
If your case goes into litigation, (although most do not), we as your Personal Injury Lawyer will pursue what is called discovery against the responsible parties. The effect of our discovery will be to significantly alter the defendant's perception of their risk and of your case's value. We do this by planning and preparation.
All of our cases follow four basic rules. We apply these rules in every case. The rules are:
- Jurors' motivation to seek justice
- Jury bias
- Strategic case planning
- And Proof.
As long as we follow these rules, we will win and convince the defense or the jury of the full value of your claim.
The first thing we do when we begin litigation is to analyze the case in the defense attorney's eyes. We analyze and indicate all the case critical issues, all of the defenses that the defense may have and, any negative jury attitudes and biases against our client, if they exist.
We then analyze how we can successfully turn around the negatives in each case. If necessary, we will take depositions to dispel any negatives in your case, including witnesses to cover what we call case critical issues, applying standards and rules to the conduct of the defendants, working out a timeframe in order to obtain all of these important issues on behalf of our client.
Sometimes we will use focus groups to develop themes and find out what jurors want to hear on a particular case.
Our purpose in discovery is to always change or alter the defense's perceived risk of going to trial, to increase the value of our clients case and for the defense to agree to settle with our client rather than go to trial.
We always heighten the importance of the defendant following the rules and we argue that with simplicity, clarity and directness. We repeatedly discuss how rules must be easy to understand, non-technical, and simple. We always discuss personal responsibility and accountability. This is a very important concern amongst all jurors. Jurors believe that all individuals must follow the rules and be held accountable for their actions. Jurors do not like individuals or corporations who break the rules and try to avoid accountability. For example, in an automobile or truck or bicycle or motorcycle accident, we will always ask, "Do you accept responsibility for the accident?" If the defendant says yes, he concedes that he or she accepts responsibility. If the defendant says no, it shows a continued pattern of avoiding responsibility. Either way, our client wins.
Our question protocol is the following:
- There is a rule
- The rule has been in existence for many years
- It is an important rule
- The defendant or witness is supposed to follow the rule
- The defendant or witness expects other to follow the rules
- Not following the rules unsafe
- It is wrong not to follow the rules
- If the rule is broken, then somebody will get hurt
- If you break the rule, you are accountable for your actions and the injury that may result
We always use the word "rule" in depositions so that we can tie it into the Standard of Care or the standard of conduct of the defendant because all jurors understand that everyone must follow the rules.
We connect the concepts of safety and survival with the defendant's duty to follow the rule. We communicate that the case is not about merely our client's or the plaintiff's safety; it's about the jury's safety and the community's safety and that everyone, including the defendant, must follow the rules.
Our goal is to always show that there are rules, that the rules were broken, how the violation of these rules makes our case larger than a single event so the jury understands that there is a sense of community and a general concept of safety to protect everyone, including the jurors and the jurors' family.
We have found this process to be effective in many cases allowing us to obtain wonderful results for our clients.
