Legal Representation is Essential to Getting Appropriate Compensation after an Auto Accident
After a serious car accident, you may not be sure how best to handle a claim for damages. You may be in a hurry to receive compensation in order to cover mounting medical expenses, or you may assume that whatever the insurer offers you first is the most you could ever expect to receive. Instead of trying to seek compensation for your injuries after a crash without fully understanding the world of insurance claims and car accident law, allow a legal professional to act on your behalf in seeking the money you’re owed for your medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering. At Magaña, Cathcart & McCarthy, our attorneys are highly experienced at aggressively representing Los Angeles car accident victims as they seek the money they’re owed for their injuries; we can help you get the money you need to move on with your life after a crash.
Driver error is most often the cause of crashes
The decisions we make while behind the wheel can have serious, life-long effects on those with whom we share the road. That driver next to might think it’s no big deal to glance down at the phone to write a quick text, or to have a couple of drinks before he drives himself home. However, traffic conditions can change in an instant, and it can be easy to miscalculate our abilities. Common driver errors such as the following can lead to accident victims spending months or years to recover:
*Texting while driving
*Failing to check blind spots before changing lanes
*Following too closely
*Failing to obey speed limits
*Driving while intoxicated
*Failing to stop at a traffic signal
Speaking to an attorney will help you know what your claim is worth
Immediately after a crash, you might not be able to ascertain just how badly injured you are, nor know what you can expect to spend to fully heal from your injuries. Insurance companies will take advantage of the fact that you don’t know how much your injuries will cost going forward, and they will push you to settle early. An attorney on your side will be able to examine your claims and records and provide a more accurate prediction of your future expenses for which you are entitled to payment.
After a serious car accident in the Los Angeles area, make sure that all your expenses are covered, and that you’re fully compensated for the trauma you experienced due to someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior. Magaña, Cathcart & McCarthy’s attorneys have the experience and knowledge you’ll need to be made whole after a crash.
