Do I Need an Attorney After My Accident?

Posted by Harmony Alves | Jul 28, 2021 | 0 Comments

You or your loved one have just been in an accident. Do you need an attorney after a car accident, motorcycle accident, trucking accident, or any other accident where you or a loved one were injured? 

Although an attorney will answer most questions with "it depends". The answer to the question "Do I need an attorney after an accident?" will always be a resounding "YES!".

Accidents have abrupt and profound impacts on your everyday life. From being physically injured to the financial ramifications an accident can be, we are here to help you along every step of the way. We are experienced in understanding the types of injuries sustained in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and many other personal injury matters. It is important to ensure you receive not only fair compensation but also quality medical treatment. Insurance companies tend to devalue your injury claim and rush your signing of a release before you have been seen by appropriately qualified medical professionals. Once you sign the release, you cannot go back to the insurance company and request more money, even if you require additional medical treatment. Often times, it takes several days to know the true extent of the trauma your body suffered in an accident, especially in relation to neck and back injuries. We work closely with your medical professionals to ensure you are receiving the necessary treatment while seeking to hold the at-fault party liable. If you or your loved one has been in an accident, whether they were in a car accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, a pedestrian injured in an accident, or injured in any way as a result of someone else's negligence  it is necessary to hire an experienced attorney. 

It is incredibly important to consult with an attorney prior to signing any paperwork the insurance requests you to sign. Although the insurance adjuster may seem nice and like they are looking out for you, this is farthest from the insurance company's intent.  Insurance companies are great at collecting money and terrible at paying fair value on applicable claims. This is their entire business model and how they continue to make millions of dollars every year. Do not let you or your loved ones be a victim of the insurance company's shakedown. We are experienced in understanding the true impact an accident has on your life and finances and will fight to get you the compensation and medical treatment that you deserve.

Immediately following an accident, most people will experience adrenaline and other natural responses that may delay the onset of pain. Additionally, most people immediately begin to have stress related to the financial impact the accident will have on their life--medical bills, missing work, loss of use of their vehicle, etc. Additionally, many ERs and Urgent Cares will be evaluating from a "triage" perspective and will often overlook non-life threatening injuries shown on imaging. It is important to have someone on your side that understands how the human body reacts to the trauma of accidents and how to recover all compensation you are entitled to. We are experienced in obtaining compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses (including future medical expenses), and many other types of damages you may be entitled to. Most importantly, you don't pay us a cent unless we win and our consultations are always FREE and with an attorney. Schedule yours today by calling us at (949) 299-7632 or schedule online by clicking here.

We've got you.
