Do you need a California personal injury attorney after a accident?
Whether you have been involved in a car accident,
slip & fall accident or any other type of accident you may be wondering whether you should hire a personal injury attorney to represent your interests. First, if you have been injured it is very important that you seek out and receive medical care for the injuries you received as part of the accident. This might not be something you can do if you don't have insurance or possibility your medical insurance does not provide medical coverage for services like chiropractic or physical therapy. An experienced
personal injury lawyer should be able to provide you with local medical services to ensure that you receive the medical treatment you require.
Second, a personal injury lawyer will be on your side. You will have someone advocating for your position and ensuring that you receive proper compensation for your injuries. Under California law you can request that your medical bills ( future and past) be reimbursed, your property damage be repaired and replaced, and that you are compensated for the pain and suffering as a result of your personal injuries.
Third, and most important, if the insurance company fails to provide you with what you believe is adequate compensation for your personal injuries what are you going to do about it? You really have only two options. You can accept their low ball offer or you can go to court. However, unless you file your claim in small claims court you will need a lawyer to bring your personal injury claim in the California Superior Court. if you find yourself making the decision that you must go to court it is always better to have your lawyer that you have had from the beginning going to court with you.
