Get The Compensation You Deserve
You are likely aware that all of the victims of California drunk driving accidents are deserving of many forms of compensation. However, what you may not be aware of is that without a good attorney experienced in handling personal injuries due to drunk driving, insurance companies can easily get out of fairly compensating you. It happens every day to those who allow the insurances companies to handle the case instead of getting a top California drunk driving accident lawyer to represent their interests.
Some people are fooled into thinking that their own insurance company has the client’s best interest in mind. The reality is that clients will often be fooled by their own insurance companies into accepting poor settlement offers. Insurance companies will also frequently deny coverage on false grounds. Without experienced legal representation, this could easily happen to you. The May Firm will communicate to you insurance to ensure that you are covered and compensated in full for the damages that occurred to you.
When calculating a compensation amount, The May Firm attorneys will take all forms of damages into account. Some of the most common forms of damages are medical costs, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and permanent disability. The May Firm Attorneys are prepared to fight for the compensation that you deserve.
California Drunk Driving Accidents Are Not Always Clear
Remember, any insurance company’s top concern will be to protect their own interests. Even if you believe you are not at fault, an insurance company may attempt to frame you at fault. In fact, many car accidents end up with partial blame on both sides. For example, if you are hit by a drunk driver at a 4 way stop intersection, it could potentially be found that you are 20% to blame for the accident. The drunk driver’s insurance will certainly be pushing for partial blame!
For these reasons, your insurance company’s top concern is NOT to represent your best interest; it is making sure that they do everything possible to pay the least amount of money possible for your damages. Do not rely on the attorneys of your insurance company to look out for your best interest. You need an attorney who will work to fight the insurance company when it attempts to rob you of what you deserve.
