November 21st, 2016| Every car accident in San Francisco is different. The people involved are different. The location of the accident is different. And the circumstances leading up to the crash are different. Because of that, it’s safe to say that there are no two accidents exactly alike. However, having been in the personal injury business for more than 30 years, there are a few things our firm can predict about an accident before we know any of the details.
- If injuries exist, it’s going to be much more complicated. Minor fender benders are usually pretty simple to resolve. After all, it’s just a property damage claim, and most insurance companies will pay that relatively quickly. Injury crashes are a whole other ballgame, and you can’t expect the insurance company to play fair.
- Your first insurance settlement offer may be low. In our experience, insurance company’s initial offer may be much less than the accident victim deserves or otherwise could secure with the help of an attorney.
- Having a lawyer on your side will speed up your recovery. Fighting the insurance company for the compensation you deserve can be exhausting. You need to put that energy toward getting better, and with an experienced attorney on your side, you can. A car accident lawyer will deal with the insurance company on your behalf, so you can focus on getting better.
