Always be sure to consult with an experienced Oceanside personal injury lawyer if you have been injured by the negligent acts of another individual. While there are many injury attorneys, make sure to hire an attorney who only handles personal injury matters. A personal injury lawyer is someone who deals exclusively in personal injury cases.
Insurance companies and local defense counsel keep track of personal injury attorneys they regularly deal with, and will evaluate a claim higher based on who they are going up against in a personal injury lawsuit.
Even though most personal injury cases settle, an insurance company has no motivation to offer a decent settlement if he or she thinks that the case will do well at trial because the plaintiff’s attorney doesn’t know what he or she is doing or will settle low to avoid going to trial. At The May Firm, our experienced personal injury attorneys even the playing field when dealing with an insurance company.
In order to file a personal injury lawsuit in California, you must be able to demonstrate that an accident occurred as a result of another person's obligation to you in the form of a standard duty of care that was ignored and that you have sustained significant injuries as a result or lost a loved one as a result of another person's negligent actions. One of the most important things you can do after any incident like this is to gather evidence and get medical attention. This is true even if you are not yet sure of the full extent of your injuries. Many people do not realize that they have been significantly hurt and that their medical conditions will continue to influence them for years to come.
For example, many victims of whiplash report that they are still suffering chronic pain years after the accident has happened. Even with a comprehensive health insurance plan, this may not be enough to assist you with the recovery you need. This is why a personal injury lawyer can assist you with the next steps to protect you now and in the long run. When filing a personal injury lawsuit, you need the insight of someone who has experience in the field of personal injury cases. You should never attempt to handle a personal injury case on your own as you could make big mistakes that could cost you and compromise the integrity of your claim.
If an insurance company may be reaching out to you in an attempt to settle things outside of court. Often times they will encourage you to accept a settlement amount that is far lower than what your injuries will cost you. Remember, full value is fair value. Making a decision to end your claim early on could lead you to regret this choice down the road. Make sure that you consult with an experienced personal injury attorney if you have been involved in an accident caused by another.
This is the best way to evaluate all of your options and to make an appropriate decision moving forward about the best way to protect yourself. A personal injury accident can change your life forever, but taking action in the form of a lawsuit may empower you to have a better future.
