San Bernardino Personal Injury Attorney for Victims of Fatal Two-Vehicle Collisions
Your damages are the losses that the negligent driver caused. There are many other losses you might suffer as a result of a car accident. Some of these (like auto repair bills) are easy to value. Others (like pain and suffering) are more difficult. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to devalue the losses that are hard to value.
As the bills stack up, you might wonder when you’ll receive payment for your damages. Speaking with an attorney is often the first step in getting your medical bills paid. Your accident may have left you with high hospital costs, ambulance fees, surgeries, medical equipment, disability, rehabilitation, or live-in care.
If you’ve suffered injuries in a car crash, you need legal advice from experienced California accident lawyers. The other driver’s insurance company is not on your side. Their job is to pay you as little as possible.
