Do I Need an Attorney to File a Claim?
While no California laws mandate hiring a lawyer to file a car accident injury claim, we highly recommend enlisting the services of an attorney. An attorney can build you a strong claim while protecting you from the tricky tactics of the insurance company so you can focus on healing.
What Types of Damages Can I Collect?
The compensation you’re eligible to recover will depend on the unique factors of your case, as well as the extent of your injuries and financial losses. Generally speaking, though, our attorneys will seek damages like complete medical care coverage, property damage, pain and suffering, and lost wages or loss of earning capacity on your behalf.
What’s the Deadline for Filing a Claim?
This is one of the most important things to know about filing a Los Angeles car accident claim. You will need to act relatively quickly if you decide to pursue compensation. In California, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim against the liable party.
What if I Was Hurt in a Single-Car Crash?
Under the right circumstances, you can recover compensation even if you were the only driver involved in your accident. If a part malfunction or road hazard caused your crash, you may be able to recover personal injury compensation.
