Car accidents happen with such regularity in Southern California that having recently witnessed or been involved in one isn’t surprising. But California is not alone. A recent U.S. Census report shows that there were 10.9 million car accidents in the United States, resulting in between 32,000 and 34,000 deaths. If you suffered serious injuries in your Los Angeles car accident, what is your legal recourse?
Because of the stress, time, and frustration that often goes with filing a car accident claim with your insurance company, many accident victims are more hesitant than ever to do so — even when they are not at fault in an accident. There is also the fear that if you file a report with your insurance company, your policy may increase in cost, regardless of you were the driver who caused the accident or not! If you or a loved one suffered serious injury or property damage, you might want to reconsider your hesitation to file an official claim — the associated costs can quickly add up. These costs can include long-term damage to the vehicle that is unknown just after the time of the accident, depreciation costs of the vehicles involved in the accident, and most importantly, the immediate and unforeseen health costs and complications caused by the impact of the accident.
These unforeseen auto accident costs, plus the fact that a large number of car accidents are caused by negligent or distracted drivers, should be the incentive victims need to take action to protect themselves and their finances. An experienced auto accident attorney in Los Angeles can help.
By hiring the right personal injury lawyer for your case, you can rest easy that you will save, if not earn, money down the road and avoid the headache and drama that goes with dealing with many insurance companies.
