In the aftermath of an accident, there are many questions about what happens with your claims. We wanted to take a few moments to provide you with answers to frequently asked questions about motor vehicle accident cases in California.
This is something that everyone with a claim wants to know, and it is difficult to truly say for sure what you can expect to receive without meeting with you to review your case. When we sit down with you, we will carefully discuss all of the possible factors that will impact compensation. Then we will aggressively pursue compensation from the other parties involved.
You should never accept an insurance company’s evaluation of your claims. These companies are simply trying to get you to settle as quickly as possible. They do not care about making you a fair offer. Their only concern is settling your case quickly and cheaply. Whatever they are offering you, you can be sure that your claims are worth more.
You might be scared to hire an attorney because you think it will be too expensive. You are already having trouble make ends meet because of the expenses of the crash, but before you decide to handle your case on your own, you need to know that we handle our personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis.
That means there are no attorney’s fees upfront in your case. We will handle everything for you, and when we recover compensation on your behalf, whether through a settlement or litigation, that is when we get paid. When you meet with us to discuss your case we will explain the fee arrangement in greater detail.
