Speak to a Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney Following an Accident

After an accident, it does not hurt to take the time to speak a Los Angeles personal injury attorney. You might discover you have grounds for a lawsuit in order to seek damages for medical bills, lost wages and other such items. Failing to take the time to speak to an attorney can result in you losing your legal claim to a case, later. The attorneys at our law firm offer free consultations to discuss your situation. Should there be grounds to pursue a case, you do not have to pay any retainer upfront. The only time you have to pay for our services is in the event we are able to reach a settlement or win your case in court.

Protect Your Legal Rights with Help from a Los Angeles Personal Injury AttorneyYou have to be careful when speaking to insurance companies, after an accident caused by another party. First, their insurance providers will attempt to get you to sign an agreement to limit their liability and financial responsibility. You could end up having to pay for medical expenses out of your own pocket in the future, if you sign an agreement with an insurance company to accept payment for current medical bills and other related expenses. Next, anything you say or tell the insurance company can be used against you, later, if you were to pursue legal action using a Los Angeles personal injury attorney. For these reasons, as well as others, it is better to consult with an attorney prior to speaking to the other party’s insurance company. In many situations, your attorney handles all correspondence and meetings between their insurance company and their attorneys to protect your rights.
