Orange County Personal Injury and Car Accident Lawyers

Every car accident or personal injury case is worth something. Finding a car accident or personal injury lawyer in Orange County can sometimes be tough. We have done everything we can to make the process easy. From the first phone call we connect every client directly to an attorney. We feel this is the only way to make the clients able to have quick and high quality answers to their questions. When someone has been injured in an accident, we know they have questions and  don’t want to wait for a lawyer to call them back. We say it over and over again but every single accident case is worth something. People call us and tell us that they are only a “little bit injured” or that they are not sure if their case is worth anything. We assure them that if they just stick to the process and trust us, they will recover a good amount for pain and suffering in their case.

Another  important thing that we think should be explained is that the insurance company is never on your side. We get calls every single day of people saying that they aren’t sure whether or not to hire an attorney. Some people think that they can just do it themselves and it doesn’t make a difference. Well when people choose that route, about 90% of the time we hear from them months later asking us to take their case because the insurance company wasn’t being fair to them. 

Benefits to hiring an attorney for your Car Accident or Personal Injury Case

When you call a lawyer it is a free consultation, you get free advice from someone who does this every single day. If you don’t like the advice or you don’t feel like hiring an attorney then you can just hang up the phone and move on with life.

The attorneys pay all the up front costs. If you do not collect money then the attorney does not get paid. At that point all the work they did on the case is free.

Studies have shown that insurance companies offer more to plaintiffs that have an attorney. There are multiple reasons why this happens:

  • Attorneys have the ability to file a lawsuit.
  • The insurance companies use programs and software to value the case. The value goes up if you have an attorney
  • The insurance companies keep a file on all the law firms and offer more to the more successful ones.
  • Lawyers know what treatment to get you and what arguments to make.
  • You get a more experienced adjuster on your case if you have an attorney assigned to it.
  • You will get better treatment from more qualified doctors and you will get more money. 

Hiring a law firm to help with your case is the superior option in every sense.

Car Accidents

Getting in a car accident is very common in Orange County. Whether it is on one of the many highways or just the side streets there is always traffic and that means there are always accidents. If you are in an accident in Orange County we can provide some helpful tips.

  • If the police arrive and you have any pain whatsoever always tell them that you are injured. If you don’t then they will not write a police report documenting the events.
  • Take a picture of the other driver’s license. This will come in handy later if your case is ever litigated.
  • Take pictures of your car and the other car at the scene.
  • If it is clear you are not at fault then feel free to take an ambulance. The ambulance will be paid for by the other parties insurance company and it shows that you are truly injured after the event.
