Do you need an experienced attorney to handle your Anaheim car accident injury claim? Were you injured in a motor vehicle accident while visiting the Anaheim area? Are you a local resident who was injured by the negligence of another driver?
Anaheim is the biggest city in Orange County, and home to many attractions such as Disneyland, Downtown Disney, the Anaheim Angels (MLB) and the Anaheim Ducks (NHL). Several major highways such as the I-405 and I-5 intersect the city, and many commuters travel through Anaheim for work, leisure, and recreation. However, this sheer volume of traffic and the high number of visitors who are unfamiliar with the area results in a high number of car accidents resulting in injury that occur annually in the city.
One of the first things people should think of when they are involved in a car accident is to seek medical attention, even if injuries seem minor such as bruises, aches and pains. If you don’t see a doctor within 24 to 48 hours of the accident the insurance company can and will deny an otherwise valid injury claim.
Sometime after immediate medical care and diagnosis, you may start to wonder if you need an experienced attorney to handle your Anaheim car accident injury claim. What are your legal options and how in the world should you deal with the insurance company. This blog post is to help shed light into the importance an experienced attorney can bring for your claims.
First, it is important to know that an insurance company is NOT your friend, and their primary objective is to provide as little payment in settlement of your claim as possible. After more than 40 years of experience I can tell you they always present “low ball offers” for your claims. Many of our largest verdicts and settlements into hundreds of thousands or above $1 million started with an offer below $20,000.
Similarly, if you don’t have insurance, or are worried about going out of pocket to cover your medical expenses, it is difficult to find health care providers that will be able to treat you on a lien basis. This is one of the many reasons it is important to have an experienced lawyer helping you throughout your insurance claims process.
When selecting your attorney, it is important to note that not all attorneys are equal. Many attorneys lack experience to handle all the intricacies of your case and the litigation that can be involved in some matters. In fact, most people would be shocked to discover that many attorneys have never even seen the inside of a courtroom!
Insurance companies primary evaluation is risk. They know their risk is lowest when they deal directly with you. They know their risk is greatest when you have an attorney who is ready and able to place your case before a jury. You need an experienced trial and injury attorney to achieve the full and fair settlement or verdict you deserve.
