Car accidents happen to people every day in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California. No matter how careful or cautious you are, careless drivers can come out of the blue and hit your car.
If you are involved in an auto accident, you need to know your rights and you need an attorney on your side from the moment the accident occurs to deal with the party that injured you. You also need an attorney to help you deal with your own insurance company. Our attorneys have years of experience and work hard to get the best result from your accident to pay for your car repairs, for your treatment, and for your pain and suffering.
If you have been injured in a car accident, remember to exchange information with the other drivers. Make sure you write the other driver’s name, home address, driver’s license number, phone numbers, and insurance information. If you have your cell phone with you, take a photo of the other driver’s license, proof of insurance, the scene of the accident, and all cars involved.
Be sure to look around to see if there are any witnesses, and get their names and contact information. Often time people responsible for an accident change their story after talking to their insurance company. Having a witness to support your version of what happened may be the difference between winning or losing your case.
Often times, people will not realize they are injured in an accident until the following day and even later. It is not too late to talk to a lawyer even if you do not feel pain immediately after an accident.
If you have been involved in an accident, you need to talk to a lawyer who is familiar with the insurance and litigation process as soon as possible. You should not discuss the accident with anyone before talking to an attorney. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions that may hurt your chances of successful recovery, and they typically offer low settlement amounts to drivers and passengers who are not represented by a lawyer.
You have the best chance of recovering the most if you contact a qualified attorney immediately after an accident occurs.

You will not have to pay anything out of pocket until a settlement is reached or a recovery is made from the other driver.
