How A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help Your Car or Motorcycle Accident Case In Los Angeles
I’ve seen it time and time again -- a client calls my firm and says the other side’s insurance company is avoiding them. No information and calls are not returned. A personal injury lawyer’s job is to get results. And remember, you don’t have to pay out of pocket for a personal injury lawyer -- the lawyer will work on a contingency-fee basis and will only recover if he is successful at getting you the compensation you deserve.
Letter of Representation
This is a powerful tool. When you retain a personal injury lawyer, that lawyer sends letters to all parties involved notifying them of the representation. The letter changes the dynamic of the case in the insurance company’s eyes: first, they’re dealing with someone who has experience and knowledge of what the case is worth; and second, the insurance company no longer ignores phone calls.
A Lawyer Provides Guidance
Have questions? From the days after the accident, through treatment and resolution of the case, a lawyer is there to guide you. Questions will come up with respect to property damage, lost work, and medical bills. A lawyer with experience can help. And, most importantly, when it comes time to settle, a personal injury lawyer will help you get the most compensation for your injuries.
When it comes time to settle an attorney with experience with car and motorcycle accidents is important. That attorney will know the argument to make to the insurance company, that attorney will expect and prepare for the counter-arguments, and they’ll know when it’s the right amount of compensation to settle.
Finally, your personal injury lawyer will have resources: they’ll have a network of doctors, sample letters and pleadings, and experience dealing with insurance companies.
