It’s understandable to have a lot on your mind following a car accident. Besides the potential injuries to deal with, the inevitable damage to your car, there’s also the emotional stress and turmoil, all on top of having to deal with your insurance company and a claim. Our lawyers are here to help you through this process, reducing the stress you have to deal with in the meantime.
San Bernardino Property Damage
Following a non-fatal car accident, the loss of property is usually the biggest loss. The vehicle could be considered a total loss in the worst case, or it might simply need costly repairs. Your car insurance company is the one who decides to deem the car a loss or provide money for repairs.
We can help you decide your course of action. First, we must figure out whether your insurance company will provide you money or if the other party’s insurance will. Generally speaking:
- If you were at fault, you must be reimbursed through your policy.
- If the other party was at fault, his or her insurance company will reimburse you.
- In no-fault states or in hit and run incidents, you will seek compensation from your insurance company.
Regardless of where you plan to seek reimbursement, it is common to find the initial offer of the insurance company won’t nearly cover the cost of repair, let alone anything else. If you lack the knowledge or energy to fight for something better, you’ll need our attorneys to take over for you.
San Bernardino Personal Injury
If an accident has injured you, it’s important to immediately get the right medical care. Any delay can make it difficult to prove that any injuries you incurred were due to the car accident.
Payment will care depends on the policy coverage. As with property damage, the insurance company that pays out depends on who was at fault.
It is also possible to obtain payment from:
- Medical payment coverage
- Uninsured motorist coverage
- Health insurance
When It’s Time for an Attorney
It’s important to remember that companies like to give pushback when you seek reimbursement. Nobody wants to pay more than they think they need to, validating all of the expenses you present to them. As such, you’ll need to hang on to your documentation and anything else that proves the cost you seek.
Our attorneys are experienced dealing with insurance companies; we will do everything possible to ensure you get the most you can receive from the company. We have also successfully had compensation provided for otherwise difficult to gauge damages, including:
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
For instance, if an auto accident victim goes blind because of a drunk driver, he’d be entitled for additional general damage compensation beyond the cost of medical bills.
