Even minor car accidents can lead to major expenses

People get behind the wheel every day in California without thinking about the consequences. Many drivers are so involved in their own lives, that they fail to recognize the risks and dangers that they are causing other individuals. Distracted and negligent drivers often fail to follow simple rules of the road and put everyone else in danger. These drivers are often responsible for serious car accidents.

When a car accident occurs, car accident victims may not understand how to move forward from the accident. As people struggle with their own emotional issues because of the accident, they may overlook the financial costs associated with the crash. Even minor accidents can result in long-term damage that needs to be addressed. Everything for medical appointments, to lost wages and pain and suffering can often be attributed to another person's negligence. In these cases, the negligent driver is financially responsible for the costs.

The insurance company often understands that people want to put a car accident behind them as quickly as possible. Therefore, they will often present a lowball offer to get people to quickly settle. However, if people take this early settlement they may get much less compensation than they need and deserve.

Therefore, people should consult with an attorney prior to accepting any insurance settlement. The attorneys at our law firm could help people understand just how expensive a collision can be. Our 50 years of combined experience can be used to people's advantage. We can help gather evidence and prove just how expensive the accident has been. We can take this knowledge and negotiate with insurance companies to get individuals the best settlement possible.

A car accident can be anything from a minor inconvenience to a life-changing event. People need to know their legal rights no matter what. For more information about car accidents and our law firm, please see our car accident webpage.
