If you lose a loved one in a fatal motor vehicle accident anywhere in Orange County you need an experienced wrongful death attorney in Mission Viejo. Wrongful death cases are legally quite complex in California, and the experience and expertise of your attorney will have a substantial impact on your case. Insurance companies know that fatal accidents resulting in a wrongful death expose them to substantial financial damages. So why doesn’t every attorney get the same outcome? Why do you need a wrongful death attorney at all?
It is important to understand the motive of the insurance company. They are obviously going to send someone with exceptional people skills (as well as expert negotiation skills) to interact with your family. They will seem quite friendly and concerned. In reality they have one job: to convince you and your family to accept far less than you deserve in order to increase the profitability of their insurance company.
Insurance companies keep extensive records on each individual attorney. They know the attorneys who can and will put a case before a jury. They know the attorneys who have a proven track record achieving successful trial verdicts for their clients. Attorneys with a proven track record at trial substantially increase the risk to the insurance company and as a result they are willing to offer much more to resolve the case and avoid a trial. If your attorney has never taken a case to a successful verdict (and many unfortunately simply haven’t) the insurance adjuster knows they can get away with a much lower offer. The insurance company quite simply has much less risk in these cases.
