There are so many difficult tasks to deal with in the wake of being injured. You’ll have to deal with work, your family, the insurance company, potentially rehab and medical care, and so much else. Even the most conscientious, organized person would struggle to keep that all straight. Of course, when you have to deal with it, odds are you aren’t at your best. After all, you’ve been injured. Top Los Angeles personal injury law firm can make every step of the way that much easier for you. We can’t make it easy per se, but our personal injury attorney can make it easier.
When you contact us, we can sit down with you quickly to figure out if we’re a good fit. Once that happens, we get right to work. That means that, should we deem it necessary, we can send professional investigators to the scene of your accident to gather potentially useful evidence. By that same token, once you’ve talked to us, you don’t have to talk to the insurance company anymore.
So, you don’t have to worry that they’re trying to trip you up (and they are trying to trip you up.) For many clients, dealing with the insurance company is stressful. You probably know that they aren’t acting in your best interests, but by that same token, you want to make sure that you do everything right as well. Once you have us on your side, you won’t have to deal with them anymore.
See, as we become your counsel, then the insurance companies, if they want to talk to you, have to go through us. This can be beneficial for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that it gives you one less thing to worry about. Go back and look at the first paragraph again, of everything that you have to deal with after you’re injured. At no point in that paragraph did it say “go back and forth with the insurance company endlessly.” By hiring us, you can give yourself one less thing to worry about at a time when you could certainly use fewer concerns.
Perhaps the most common way that the insurance company tries to get you to accept less money than your case is worth is by offering a “low ball” offer. This is exactly what it sounds like: they’ll offer you money right after your accident, in many cases, quite a bit of money. On top of that, it might be right after an accident, too. We’ve had clients who have said that they were contacted the day after an accident with an offer.
Of course, this offer might seem like the best thing in the world at the time. After all, you’re hurt. You could certainly use the money. It can seem like a true godsend. But, you can rest assured that if the other side makes their offer first, it’s just that: their offer. For them. The insurance companies have been doing this work for many decades. They know what every case is worth, every accident, and so forth. So, their goal is simple: to make sure that you take less than your case is worth. That’s it. If they do that, then they’ve done their job. This may seem harsh, but it’s true.
We always encourage prospective clients to reach out to us when the insurance company makes an offer. We’re glad to sit down with you and look at the offer together. Almost invariably, this offer is so much less than the injured party could potentially get through us taking their case. We can advise you on this and any other form.
The insurance company’s funding model is, in this instance, oppositional. They make money when you get less. Ours is the exact opposite: we get more money when you do. We have every incentive in the world to make sure that you get as much money as possible for your case. Unlike the insurance company, which doesn’t always have your best interests at heart, we do.
We know that for many, the toughest part of the process is getting started. Reaching out to an accident lawyer can seem like a Herculean task. That’s why we’ve done everything we can to make the process as easy as possible. When you’re ready, we are, too. You can give us a call at (818) 240-1800 or alternatively, message us through our site. From there, we’ll sit down with you and go over your case so that you can know exactly what to expect. We’re always happy to help people to get all of the compensation that they deserve.
