Do I Need A Head-On Collision Lawyer?
You need a lawyer if you want to recover the money you deserve. Injury victims with lawyers receive more money than those without lawyers. This is even after taking attorney fees into account.
Those at-fault in motor vehicle accidents are liable for injuries they cause. California law says so. The at-fault driver usually doesn’t pay, though. Insurance companies usually end up paying this money.
The only way to force insurance companies to pay every penny they’re supposed to is to sue them, though. They won’t pay you what you deserve if you can’t sue them and win. They know you can’t sue them and win without a lawyer. So, they won’t pay you what you deserve if you don’t have a lawyer. They will only offer you a very small amount and dare you to sue them without a lawyer. They do this to protect their own profit margin.
Insurance companies keep records on lawyers. Their records on us tell them we can sue them and win. They know we have a reputation for success. This is why almost all our cases settle out of court. Insurance companies consider it a waste of time and money to take us on in court.
You send a message to the insurance companies that you mean business when you hire us. You’re telling them you can file a personal injury lawsuit and win. This is how you get them to offer you what you deserve.
It’s also important to have a lawyer to talk to insurance companies for you. Insurance companies teach adjusters how to trick serious accident victims. They’re very good at getting you to say certain things on recording. They can pay you less or nothing at all if you say these things.
We’ve been dealing with insurance companies for over 30 years. We know their tricks. We won’t fall for them. Leave talking to the insurance companies to us.
