Making sure insurance companies fulfill their obligations

Most of our readers in Southern California understand the basics of a personal injury lawsuit. When an accident, like a car accident, is caused by another party's negligence, that party can be held responsible in civil court for damages. There are really only four parts to most personal injury cases: show that a duty existed, the defendant breached that duty, the victim's injuries and costs would not have occurred "but for" the negligence of the defendant and, lastly, show that there were damages that resulted.

Unfortunately, sometimes, there is a bit more to it. In many cases, insurance companies are involved. For instance, when a California resident is injured in a car accident that was caused by another driver who did not have insurance, the injured party's own insurance may cover the medical expenses. But, uninsured/underinsured motorist accidents can leave a person's head spinning with all of the complexities of the language in an insurance policy.

At our law firm, we understand this type of "legalese" language, and we do our best to help our clients get the compensation they deserve. Unfortunately, an insurance company may offer to pay an injured victim a certain amount, which might be lower than what the injured person deserves.

Remember - one is paying their insurance premiums for a particular type of coverage. At our law firm, we help our clients make sure that insurance companies are fulfilling their obligations.
