Take a look at common questions by California injury victims seeking legal counsel in 2020
1. Why do I need an Attorney?
Insurance companies and Car Companies have a team of attorneys working for them, and you’re entitled to get one by law to help you secure your rights. It is important to remember that anything you say to your insurance company or another party’s insurance company, can be used against you in the future, no matter how harmless or innocent you believe your statement to be.
2. In a car accident, I want to make sure my car repairs are done quickly and correctly, but how?
The best way is to take lots of pictures of all vehicles involved immediately and to promptly take the car to a body shop of your own choice that is reliable and reputable. Opening the claim with the insurance company is the first step towards getting your vehicle repaired. However, before speaking with anyone or opening your claim, you should consult the right professional and experienced accident attorney. If you are a client of our firm, we will handle all of your car repair coordination, scheduling, and repairs with our office, so you don’t have to. We can even arrange for a rental car during the repair time.
3. Can I get a rental car while my car is being repaired?
Yes. In most instances, we quickly arrange for a rental car for you so you can get on with your normal activities, and we make sure you get the car you need. Do you have a case? If so – Get a rental car.
4. Do I have to pay in advance for an attorney?

6. I don’t have health insurance or money to pay for a doctor, but I’m hurt and need to see someone. What should I do?
If you’re seriously injured and you cannot wait, you should seek immediate medical attention at your local emergency room. Otherwise, if your injuries are stable and non-life threatening, our office can provide you with access to the best doctors and medical facilities in your local neighborhood, even if you don’t have health insurance or money to pay upfront. Our network of doctors understand that your health is the most important thing, and they also know that they need to wait until your case is resolved to be paid for their bills.

The law is very clear in this area, and we have the finance and accounting knowledge to evaluate your loss of work claim properly. This is in addition to your injury claim and property damage claim.
9. Can dash-cam footage be used as evidence in a case?
The simple answer is yes. The videos recorded by a dashcam can be used as evidence in the investigation of car accidents. Keep in mind that the videos recorded can be used for the benefit of the owner of the dashcam and can also be used against them. The dash camera can capture details you may not remember about the incident. The recorded video may contain proof of your innocence, which can help clear you from the accusation.
10. How Soon Should I See a Doctor and Personal Injury Attorney After an Auto Accident?
If you are severely injured on the scene of an accident, it is easy to make the decision to go to the emergency department in an ambulance and get medical care right away. But it is more challenging to know what to do if your injuries don’t appear to be serious. Just because you were able to walk away from a car accident doesn’t mean you were not injured in the crash. It is essential to see a doctor to be sure that you did not suffer any latent injuries. Beyond the medical concerns, there are also legal reasons to see a doctor as soon as possible. Your ability to be compensated – and the amount of compensation you receive – is determined by automated information about your injuries.
