Why will you need an experienced attorney to handle your Huntington Beach car accident case? Huntington Beach is one of the largest cities in Orange County, and has a disproportionately high number of pedestrian and vehicular accidents. According to the local Chamber of Commerce more than 7,000,000 tourists and visitors each year enjoy the vibrant nightlife and the beautiful beaches. Unfortunately, this also means a substantial number of the pedestrians and drivers on Huntington Beach roads are not familiar with the area. This may help to account for the high number of motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents which occur annually in the Huntington Beach.
The first thing most people should think to do after any vehicle related accident is to seek medical attention, even if they don’t believe they are injured. Many injuries can take days or even weeks to present symptoms and this is why you must see a physician for a thorough medical examination with 24 to 48 hours of an accident. If you do not see a doctor within 48 hours of the accident the insurance company will reject your otherwise valid personal injury claim.
The responsible insurance company’s goal is to minimize their exposure, and provide the lowest possible payment and settlement amounts that they can get away with. They frequently love to take advantage of inexperienced accident victims who may not be fully aware of their legal rights and options and how the claims process and their legal case will work.
This is why it is so important to have an experienced attorney to handle your Huntington Beach car accident case.
