What To Do If You're In An Accident

Personal InjuryAccidents happen every day. This is especially true regarding auto accidents. California is one of the leading states in the country for car accidents. In Contra Costa County alone, more than 5,000 individuals were involved in auto accidents in 2016. It's easy to want to move on quickly, especially when the alternative might mean a lengthy and confusing process of dealing with insurance companies. However, as a firm that has helped countless clients with the aftermath of auto accidents, we can offer this advice: Don't settle with insurance right away.

Consulting an attorney who can evaluate your case and look at possible outcomes is crucial after an accident. They will be able to offer alternatives that apply to your situation. For instance, most people think that if the other party did not have insurance, they wouldn't get anything to help cover their needs. This is not necessarily true. Things like uninsured motorists' coverage do exist and can make a difference in your case.
