Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers
A car accident is sudden, unexpected and scary. In most cases, accident victims are left feeling vulnerable and hopeless. The accident can cause serious injuries, missed time from work and high medical bills. It is more than just a minor inconvenience.
The insurance company may call and try to settle the case in the immediate aftermath of the crash. It is important to remember that the insurance adjuster is not working for you. Their goal is to maximize profits for their company. They do this by offering a quick settlement that may not fully and fairly compensate you for your injuries. You may have future medical expenses that are not covered by the early settlement offer. If you accept a settlement, you have no further legal recourse against the person who caused your accident.
