If you or your loved one were involved in a car accident, you might be stressed out and frightened. Chances are, you will be very concerned about the injuries you have sustained as well as the damage of your vehicle. During that time, it is very important for you to keep in mind that you must not turn for the insurance companies right away.
All insurance agencies are ran by multi-billion corporations. They have their own trained experts, who have only one purpose – to make sure that your insurance claim is diminished as much as possible. Before you address your insurance company, it is best to get in touch with a skilled and experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at the earliest opportunity.
With that said, in case the car accident was not at your fault, there is absolutely no reason to get in touch with the insurance company to begin with. You will need help of a professional lawyer, who will be able to negotiate with the insurance company as well as the adjusters, while you will get time to rest and recover from the accident.
Every single case and its' outcome will depend on a number of circumstances surrounding it. Hence, you will want every single detail to be in order and all the evidence gathered properly.
That is one of the many reasons why you need to work with a qualified injury attorney.
Sure enough, it is vital for all the car accident claims to be handled by a competent lawyer.
A lot of people, who were injured during the car accident, will have a temptation to deal with the issue on their own and it is a big mistake.
Should you provide a statement to the insurance adjusters and ignore the legal advice whatsoever, you risk diminishing the overall value of your insurance claim. Furthermore, in some cases, the insurance might pay to be barely enough to cover some of your medical bills.
No doubt, the details around the accident as well as what caused it will play a major role in your case. Hence, there is absolutely no time to waste – the evidence needs to be gathered before it is too late.
This is why you should hire a team of accident lawyers, who will have their own investigator onsite. We are talking about the experts, who are going to start gathering evidence right away.
They will gather all the witness statements, go through their testimonies and will make photos of the vehicle before it is repaired. In addition, if the law enforcement officers were involved on the scene, the attorneys will use their right to browse through all the available police evidence as well.
We are not only talking about the police reports and statements – also the cameras installed in the police vehicles, since those could offer some vital information too. Overall, the process might be very complicated, but having a good injury lawyer on your side will open many possibilities to win the case.
Do not forget that the injuries you have sustained largely depend on the circumstances of the car accident you were involved in. In most cases, people expect that they will be approached by the insurance company and that it will pay for their medical bills right away.
In truth, the insurance companies do not really care about your injuries and will claim that they will not be able to help you until you give them a statement.
This strategy is meant to keep you waiting for days or weeks even in hopes that this will prove that your injuries were not severe and so the compensation might be minimal. Hence, you will need to work with a law firm to avoid such an approach.
Even if you do not have enough money to go to a hospital, the lawyer is going to help you find an affordable way to diagnose your injuries.
Some of the serious traumas you sustain in an accident may not be immediately visible and may only appear later on.
