“What should I do if I’m injured in an accident in Mission Viejo or nearby Orange County?” The first and most important thing to do after a car accident in Mission Viejo is to be thoroughly examined by a doctor at the emergency room or an urgent care or your own primary physician within 24 to 48 hours of the accident. If you do not see a doctor in the hours after an accident the responsible insurance company will refuse to pay your medical bills and other expenses and there probably won’t be anything which can be done about that legally. Their argument will be “you didn’t even see a doctor after the accident. Your injuries must have come from something else and you’re just trying to get us to pay for them.”
The second step is to contact one of the most experienced, proven personal injury attorneys in Mission Viejo – Rivers Morrell – for a free and comprehensive consultation.

If you are injured in an accident in Mission Viejo you need to know not all personal injury attorneys are equally skilled or experienced and most don’t have genuine trial experience to successful verdicts. Insurance companies will offer less unless they know you are willing to put them in front of a jury. Their risk is much lower and they know an inexperienced non-trial attorney cannot hold them fully accountable.
