Tips for Settling a Car Accident Claim

Car accidents happen every day. In California, there are over one hundred accidents every day, and around 17 percent of injured individuals end up paying the ultimate price. 6 out 10 times there is a teenager behind the wheel, and almost 80 percent of all car accidents involve some sort of distraction:
  • Cell phone usage
  • Sound stereo adjusting
  • Texting and speaking
  • Lack of focus
  • Stress
Even so, once you have been in a car accident, if you are proven to be the victim, you can receive compensation for the injuries you sustained and for the damages done to your vehicle. To do so, you are going to require help from a skilled and resourceful Los Angeles Auto Accident Lawyer. Here is how one of our attorneys can help you settle after a car accident.

First Steps 

Right after the car accident, there are a few things you can do that will increase the chances of receiving the settlement. These things involve the following:
  • Taking pictures of the scene
  • Getting a copy of the police report
  • Seeking medical treatment
  • Taking personal information from any eyewitnesses on the scene
  • Taking a copy of the police report
  • Taking pictures of the damaged vehicle
Once you have everything, your attorneys will literally glide through your case with ease, and prove the other party’s negligence.

After that is establishes, you are ready to start negotiating your settlement.

Don’t Accept the Initial Deal 

Sooner or later, you will be approached by the other party’s insurance company. They will send insurance adjusters who will try and offer you a deal. Every one of our experienced Personal Injury Attorneys in Los Angeles will advise you to pass on the initial deal as it is never good enough. It won’t cover for all your damages, and it is not as nearly as good as it should be.
Once you understand your case’s true worth, you can negotiate the deal by suggesting a price close to the value of your case. Be prepared for an exhausting negotiation, as these insurance adjusters don’t give up that easily. For that reason, determine the minimum acceptable settlement and don’t tell them what it is. Simply don’t accept any offer that is not close to it. The key is to remain flexible, and not to be hasty. Even though an offer they make may be good at the time when you hear it, don’t rush to accept it. Consult with your attorney before making any decisions.
If you are not getting a good value, yet your attorney is confident that you are the victim in this case and that you will win if the case goes to trial, go to trial. Once the court brings a decision (in your favor), they will have no other option but to give you the settlement you deserve.

You will receive full compensation for the: 

  • Damages that were done to your vehicle
  • Injuries sustained
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages (both future and past)
  • Medical bills
