Tustin Car Accident Lawyer
When someone else is careless on the road and causes a car accident that injures you, you’re the victim. But you don’t have to keep being the victim after the accident. A Tustin car crash lawyer can give you the best available chance of getting the compensation you deserve.
In 2014, 579 people were killed or injured in vehicle accidents in Tustin. Many of those accidents were the result of someone else’s careless or negligent actions.
If you’ve been the victim of one of those accidents, you know how traumatic a car accident can be. That trauma continues after the fact when you’re faced with mounting medical bills and rising expenses in addition to your physical pain.
However, you can put an end to your hardships by filing a claim for compensation, and a qualified Tustin car accident lawyer can help you do it.
Reaching Out to a Lawyer
Not everyone calls an attorney the second they’re in a fender bender, and some people feel uneasy about getting a lawyer involved. But contacting a lawyer may be the best way to get the compensation you need if you’re injured.
If any of the following sentences describes your car accident or injuries, you may want to call a lawyer:
- You were injured in a car wreck that you didn’t cause.
- The other party is denying responsibility.
- The insurance company is refusing to pay for a procedure.
- You’re unable to work.
- You have ongoing expenses related to your accident.
Finding the Cause of Your Accident
Your Tustin car crash attorney will need to determine the cause of your wreck so he can prove what happened and why you should be compensated. This process requires reviewing all the available evidence and may include the following:
- Speaking with witnesses
- Reviewing video or photos from the accident scene
- Looking at medical records and speaking with your doctor
- Conducting depositions
Your Injuries Influence Your Claim Value
Every case is different, so your lawyer will need to know how badly you were injured and how your injuries have changed your life. The goal is to get you compensation for the total impact—not just medical bills and lost wages. That means your compensation can account for your pain and suffering, too.
If you cannot work and your doctor thinks you won’t recover for at least a year, you could also be considered disabled. In this case, you can receive long-term compensation for income you would have earned had you not been injured.
Be Careful with the Insurance Company
Dealing with the insurance company after your accident can be difficult. That’s because most insurers have a team of lawyers and claim agents whose job is to protect the company’s profits. Paying you as little as possible is often in the company’s best interest.
The insurance company may contact you to ask questions about your car accident. If you answer the questions, the insurer may try to twist your answers and blame the accident on you, which could keep you from getting the compensation you need.
Don’t deal with the insurance company directly; instead, let your Tustin accident injury lawyer handle the insurer on your behalf.
