The insurance company doesn’t seem to be giving me any problems – do i still need a lawyer?
Insurance companies often appear to deal fairly with their policy holders, especially at the beginning of a case. However, many people find that their insurance companies become increasingly hard to deal with when it comes time to collect compensation. We advise victims of personal injury to speak with our attorneys about their cases as soon as they can. Having an attorney involved to handle the legal aspects of your case makes it more difficult for bad faith insurance practices to take place.
How much is my personal injury claim worth?
The amount of compensation that victims are entitled to collect depends on the scope of the accident and the extent of the injuries. As a general rule, victims of personal injury are entitled to receive monetary compensation for property damage, lost wages, medical bills, and emotional pain and suffering. Contact our personal injury attorneys serving Lancaster, Apple Valley, and Victorville for a free case evaluation. We can give you an accurate estimate of the amount of compensation you are entitled to collect based on the specifics of your case.
Do all personal injury claims go to court?
Not all personal injury claims go to court. Most insurance companies like to settle outside of court to avoid paying the higher legal fees associated with taking a trial to court.
