Dealing With The Insurance Companies

After suffering injuries in a motor vehicle accident you can count on the insurance companies to start calling you.

If a driver hit you, then his auto insurance company could be liable so they will want to speak to you and get a statement, etc.

Be very careful about talking to an insurance company or signing anything, instead your best bet is to contact a Santa Monica accident lawyer as soon as you get out of the hospital.

The insurance companies have their own way of determining fault in an accident, and the games they play with settlement amounts can definitely extend how long the settlement can take.

In the end the insurance company is not going to be your friend, so don’t just sit back and wait for them to help you.

If you take that approach we guarantee you’ll regret your decision.

what do injury lawyers do

What Does an Injury Lawyer Do

Many accident victims don’t really understand what a personal injury lawyer can do for them.

The Law Offices of Daniel Kim has helped thousands of injury victims over the years and this has allowed us to perfect the process that we use when fighting the insurance companies.

Below we talk about what we can do to help –

Free Consultation – we offer a free consultation so we can discuss your case and get details, and answer any questions you have.

This consultation allows us to better explain how the legal process works and what you need to worry about.

Launch an Investigation – it’s very important for your lawyer to do a deep investigation into your accident. This includes – reviewing the police report, speaking to witnesses, looking at photo and video evidence, etc.

Help you get medical care – getting medical treatment is very important. If you don’t get medical attention then the insurance companies will attempt to deny your claim saying you weren’t ‘really hurt”. Also you need medical care because recovering from a car accident takes time and professional help.

Negotiating The Settlement – dealing with the insurance companies is literally a nightmare, but we are great at what we do and we are not intimidated by the Big Corporate insurance companies. Do not fight this battle alone, you will regret it for the rest of your life.

The reality is that insurance companies love to deal with accident victims who choose to represent themselves. This is because they know the people who don’t have a lawyer are much more likely to make a mistake, or accept a tiny settlement.
