Why Hire an Accident Attorney?

One of the main reasons to hire an attorney is so that they can handle all aspects of your suit. From the initial consultation through a successful resolution, an attorney should be able to support you throughout the process.

In the wake of an accident, your focus is going to, rightly, be on your recovery. As such, the last thing you want to have to deal with is your injuries, depositions, legal concerns, and so forth. An attorney should handle everything so that you can focus on your recovery, on living your life how you want to live.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

In a case involving a vehicle crash, your attorney should negotiate with the insurance companies for you. You don’t have to deal with them anymore once you have an attorney.

Unfortunately, the other side’s insurance company does not have your best interests at heart, to say the very least. Their goal is to see that you receive as little as possible for everything that you’ve been through. They can achieve this method in many ways.

They might offer you much less than everything you have had to go through is worth. In hopes that you’ll take the deal and not consult with an attorney, they could do this so that you never find out how much you should receive. Having an experienced attorney on your side puts a stop to that.

Your representative should fight to make sure that you receive everything you should. Most do end in a negotiated settlement. But, if necessary, your legal team should be more than glad to go to court.

A Complete Investigation

The legal firm you sign with should, from the moment you sign, conduct an investigation. This should be the work of experienced, professional investigators. Many law firms use those with law enforcement backgrounds and others who have done this work in the past. It's their job to find the truth of your situation. Then, your representative should use that to make the argument on your behalf that much more compelling.

The other side will do the same. They will have their own sets of experts, all of which paint the same picture: that you were at fault, that you do not deserve anything, etc. Your legal team should use the truth to get you what you should receive.

Medical Help if Necessary

No one ever thinks “I’m going to be in an accident today.” There’s just no way to be truly prepared. Experienced accident lawyers understand this. The right law firm for you will work on contingency. That means they won't get paid unless they win for you. The right law firm will also have connections to teams of medical professionals who work in a similar capacity.

As such, you can go to them for your medical treatment. Just like your legal team, you won’t have to pay the medical pros out of your own bank account. Instead, their payment, like your legal team that works on contingency, will come out of your eventual settlement. This way, victims of accidents can receive the medical care that they should.

All of the Paperwork and More

The sheer amount of paperwork, filing, deadlines, and the like that are associated with any accident can be onerous, even overwhelming. Your legal team should stay on top of all of it for you. Along the way, they should always be in touch so that you know exactly how your case is going.

You’ve been through so much. You deserve to have a team of attorneys fighting for you every step of the way.

Compensation for Your Injuries

You may very well be eligible for multiple kinds of damages. When you have your consultation with Big Ben, he’ll let you know what your case is worth and how he’ll go about fighting so that you get it.

In our state of California, you can receive damages for having been injured in an accident. You can receive economic and non-economic damages.

Did you require medical treatment for injuries stemming from your Fresno car accident? If so, then an experienced Fresno car accident attorney can help you to recover compensation for them. If you had to go see a doctor, if you needed medication, therapy, rehab, even trips to the hospital, etc., you can receive compensation for it. Those are “economic” damages.

Non-Economic Damages for All You've Been Through

After your injury, were you in a lot of pain? Were you suffering? Does it feel like you don’t enjoy life or certain activities as much as you did? Are you depressed, anxious, sad, and so forth? If so, you can receive compensation for all of that and more as well. These are what’s called “non-economic” damages.

The right legal team will always fight to make sure you get what you should from your California car accident.

Proving Your Case

There are certain factors that must be proven in a case here in California.

In short, your attorneys have to prove that the other party had a duty of care to you, they violated it, and through that violation, there was an accident, leading to your injuries that you have to be compensated for. An experienced firm, then, is one that has done exactly that many times over the years.

Finding All Who Are Liable for Your Injury

Remember: multiple parties could be liable for your accident. Sure, the other driver, the one who crashed into you, is, most likely, liable for your accident, granted. However, that doesn’t mean that they’re solely and exclusively liable. Other parties could be liable, too.

Did an environmental factor contribute to your accident? The party who was responsible for those and was negligent in their duties could be partially liable. Was there a defect in your car or the other party’s that worsened the accident? Then the manufacturer and others could be liable, too.

We’ll find out who was liable. All of them. Then, we’ll use it for your case.

Car Accident: What to Do After

Again, no one prepares for a car accident. There’s just no way. You can be the world’s safest driver but, when circumstances don’t go your way, when someone does something they shouldn’t, you and yours can be injured.

If you are injured in an accident, remember: be calm. It’s easier said than done, yes, but, if you are hurt, being panicked and frantic will do no one any good, least of all yourself. Take deep breaths and assess the situation calmly and rationally as best you can.

Then, if you’re able, get out of harm’s way. Many accidents occur in the middle of the road. You want to get out of there for sure. Remove yourself from any threat (or remove any threat) that you can, to the extent that you can do so safely.

Assess yourself and others for injuries. If you can’t move because you’re too injured, don’t try to. The same goes for others.

Once you’re able, once you’re out of harm’s way, call 911. Call the authorities. Don’t wait. You want medical professionals as well as the cops to check everything out fast.

Even if you don’t think you need medical care, get it. Hopefully, no one was hurt. All too often, injuries take their time showing up. They could be internal. They could be bad and you don’t know till it’s too late. Get medical attention quickly.

Tell the cops what happened. They’ll file a report. We can use that for your case.

Get the other driver’s info. Don’t be rude, loud, aggressive, confrontational - any of that. Instead, just calmly get their information.

Take pictures and videos. It will help your case. Get yourself, your injuries, your vehicle, anything that was damaged - we can use it all.

Once you’ve done all of that, contact your insurance agent. Tell them what happened calmly and rationally. Then, call us. We can help.
