Car Accident Insurance Claims
Los Angeles Car Accident Claim Lawyer
Dealing with an insurance claim is a necessary step to take after a car accident. As soon as possible after an accident, you will need to report the incident to your insurance company. Once you do, an insurance adjuster will likely contact you or arrive at the scene to evaluate the extent of damage and what your claim should be worth. This is necessary to avoid insurance fraud, but it may pose a problem to a person with a real claim, particularly in the face of bad faith practices on the part of a car insurance company.
If you would like to help ensure that your interests will be properly protected in the filing of your car accident insurance claim, it is important that you consider consulting a lawyer. A legal professional will be able to not only evaluate what your claim should be worth, but can also then conduct negotiations with the insurance company or take your case to civil court in order to seek the full value of your claim.
Why an Attorney?
An insurance company isn't necessarily going to immediately pay the fair value of your claim in full. They may offer a settlement that does not fully cover all of your medical bills or include future treatment or "intangible" damage such as emotional trauma. An attorney experienced in dealing with insurance claims will be able to become involved and make sure that your rights are not violated through the process of filing your claim and recovering the benefits you deserve. Not only that, an attorney can look to other resources other than an insurance claim from which you may be able to recover financial compensation. This is even more important in an accident with an underinsured or uninsured driver.
