Do I Need an Attorney for My Car Accident Case?

Being involved in a car collision can turn your life upside down. It can be challenging to figure out how to make ends meet if you are out of work because of painful injuries. However, if someone else was at fault for the incident, you might be able to seek financial compensation for your injuries and losses. Under California law, an individual or entity may be held financially accountable for damages resulting from negligence.

You will also have to deal with difficult insurance companies looking to protect their bottom line. The unfortunate reality is that the insurance company may not offer a fair settlement after a motor vehicle collision caused by their insured. Most auto insurance carriers will do everything in their power for claimants to receive less than what they deserve. 

Our injury attorneys are experienced in navigating the personal injury claims process with difficult insurers and defense counsel to ensure our clients are fairly compensated for their injuries and damages. 

Insurance carriers often use any defense tactic possible to limit your recovery or deny your bodily injury claim. Even if the insurer makes a settlement offer, it may not be enough to cover the damages incurred. Retaining an experienced Fairfield personal injury attorney allows you to level the playing field.

About Our Fairfield Personal Injury Law Firm

Our injury attorneys at AutoAccident.com have built strong, personal connections with our clients. As a result, many of our clients have become like family, and some even refer to us as the "personal" personal injury lawyers. Our legal team takes the time to get to know you and how your injuries have impacted your life.

Finding the Best Injury Attorney for Your Injury Case

We apply a holistic approach to personal injury law. Our attorneys cannot explain the true nature of your trauma to a jury unless we get to know you and your family personally. 

You have the ultimate say so. You are in charge of denying or accepting an offer on your bodily injury claim. We will tell you if we think the insurance settlement offer is too low and counsel you to mediate or go to trial. When we feel an offer is in the ballpark and fair, we will tell you why. We are good navigators of the legal thicket, but it is your personal injury case, and we work for you.

We have been trial attorneys since 1982 and are not afraid of the courtroom. We have the resources to take a case to trial when an insurance company offers a low-ball settlement.

Fairfield Traffic Accident FAQ

Should I accept the insurance company's offer for my accident?

No. Since there is a possibility that your injury will be under-compensated, it is essential not to accept an offer from the insurance company or sign off on your claim until you have talked to an experienced injury lawyer. The attorney will review your case to determine a potential settlement. Offers received after intervention by an attorney are usually greater than those without legal counsel.

How do I know what my personal injury case is worth?

Your claim's value depends on the proven cause of injury and your physical, emotional, and financial consequences. More serious injuries cause more severe damage. But in California, damages are weighed against the fault of both parties. If you are injured in an accident, consult with an experienced injury attorney about the specific facts of your case and the possible outcome.
