Huntington Beach Car Accident Lawyer
When you’ve suffered serious injuries in an auto wreck, you need to know how to get the largest settlement possible out of the insurance company. Find out what your claim could be worth by speaking to a Huntington Beach car accident lawyer.
After being hurt in a car accident, you need a Huntington Beach car accident lawyer to protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly by the insurance company. These corporations are infamous for lowballing settlement offers and for trying to blame victims for their own accidents—all in an effort to pay out as little as possible.
Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can become your advocate and fight on your behalf to ensure that you receive the largest settlement possible for your case.
After an Auto Wreck
We encourage you to call our office to discuss the details of your car accident as soon as possible. We will ask questions to determine who was negligent and then go to work gathering evidence to prove that someone else was to blame for your collision and injuries.
This sets the foundation for your personal injury lawsuit. Other steps to take immediately after a crash are as follows:
- File an accident report with the police
- Contact your auto insurance company and file an accident claim
- Receive a full medical evaluation from your doctor immediately after the wreck
Doing these things right away increases the likelihood that your case will reach a successful outcome. Because there is a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims in California, waiting too long could cost you your right to seek monetary restitution.
Common Car Crash Injuries
The type of injury you suffered in the collision will be central to the overall value of your claim. This is because the nature and extent of your wounds will determine what medical care will be necessary, how long your recovery will take, and how your quality of life and future wellbeing will be affected.
Your Huntington Beach car accident lawyer will have extensive experience valuing claims for a wide variety of different injury types:
- Whiplash and spine injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Bone fractures and breaks
- Organ damage and internal bleeding
- Hearing or vision loss
- Wrongful death
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
Recovering Financial Damages for a Car Crash
To get the most money possible for your personal injury claim, we will evaluate all of the ways that your life has been impacted by the accident. You can receive compensation for all of your financial expenses and the intangible ways that your quality of life has decreased. This could include any of the following items:
- Current and future medical care
- Lost wages and income
- Property damage and vehicle repair
- Transportation and medication expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Lost enjoyment of life
Negotiating a Personal Injury Settlement
Once we have gathered evidence to prove negligence and have placed an initial value on your claim, we can start the negotiation process. A demand letter will be created and sent to the other party for review. They will respond in one of three ways: refusing to settle, making a counteroffer, or agreeing to our terms. In most cases, they will make a counteroffer and negotiations can begin.
Court will only become necessary if they refuse to take your claim seriously. If a court-rendered verdict becomes your best option for a full settlement, your Huntington Beach car accident lawyer will represent you throughout the proceedings and keep you informed and prepared for each step.
