Southern California Multi-Car Accidents
If you are hurt in a Southern California car accident, you may be confused about where to turn next. Mounting medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages all combine to create a headache for you and those depend on you.
The insurance company will be in touch with you in the days and weeks after the crash. An insurance adjuster will try to settle your case quickly. They will make an offer with the promise that you can quickly put the accident behind you.
Unfortunately, the insurance company does not have your best interest at heart. An insurance company is a for-profit business. The company maximizes its profits by settling with you shortly after the crash and at a reduced price.
Often, the full extent of your injuries is not known until months later. By accepting an early settlement, you lose your right to recover later. This is a mistake you cannot afford to make.
