No matter how difficult the battle is, don’t give up on your pursuit of the compensation you deserve. Instead, allow a Glendale car crash lawyer to join your team.
In 2014, almost 1,000 people were killed or injured in vehicle accidents in Glendale. And many of those accidents happened because drivers, vehicle manufacturers, and other parties acted carelessly.
If you have been the victim of one of these crashes, you deserve compensation if the accident wasn’t your fault. Haffner Law is here to make sure you get what you’re owed.
Working with a Glendale car accident lawyer from our firm will allow you to focus on healing while we handle the tricky legal details surrounding personal injury claims.
The Challenges of Dealing with Insurers
One of the biggest challenges you’re likely to face as you pursue compensation for your Glendale car accident is dealing with the insurance company. The reason is simple: Insurance companies are motivated by their profits to avoid fairly compensating you for an accident, even when that accident wasn’t your fault.
To that end, insurers will likely try to trick you into accidentally making statements that point the blame for the crash in your direction. They may also fail to offer you a settlement that truly accounts for the damages you have suffered. In some cases, insurance companies will refuse to offer any compensation whatsoever.
A Glendale car wreck lawyer can help you deal with the insurance company in a way that will negate these dishonest tactics. In fact, we’re happy to handle all the communication with the insurer on your behalf.
Who Caused Your Glendale Car Accident?
An essential part of filing your claim for compensation will be identifying the liable party. Naming the incorrect person in your claim or failing to name an additional liable party can reduce your compensation or even get your claim thrown out completely.
A number of people could be at fault for your Glendale car crash and resulting injuries. Your attorney can evaluate the evidence to make sure all negligent parties have been identified.
The following are some common causes of car accidents:
- Drowsy, distracted, or drunk drivers
- Drivers who fail to follow traffic laws
- Road hazards like debris, potholes, roadside construction sites, and unreasonably sharp turns
- Defective and malfunctioning car parts
Identifying the cause of your crash will point your lawyer in the direction of the person or group responsible for your injuries.
What You Stand to Gain
In your personal injury claim, you will need to list all of the hardships you have endured as a result of your Glendale car crash. Your attorney can help you calculate the value of these damages to make sure your claim will win you an amount that will cover you for as long as you need.
The following are some common types of damages for which you can receive compensation after a car accident:
- Healthcare expenses, including future medical bills
