Frequently Asked Questions
If you were recently involved in a car accident in the Sacramento area, you may have numerous questions that need answering. Getting these answered and consulting an attorney is an important step to take, as this will help you make informed choices about your insurance claim and whether you need an attorney. Following are some frequently asked questions we have come across in our practice:
Should I give a statement to the other driver's insurance adjuster regarding the accident?
We strongly advise against giving a statement to the other driver's insurance company. The adjuster may contact you simply to try to get you to say something that would limit the other driver's responsibility in causing the accident, and without proper legal counsel you may find that you are tricked into admitting that you caused the accident or that it was not the other driver's fault.
Do I need to involve an attorney?
You are not required to involve an attorney for your car accident claim, but making the choice to involve a professional may make a significant difference in your ability to recover the full financial compensation to which you may be entitled. A Sacramento car accident attorney can guide you through the process of filing your claim and can assist you in the presence of any issue or dispute to help ensure your rights are not violated in any way - in all, working to help you make informed choices and reach the best possible conclusion to your claim or lawsuit.
Should I report the accident to my insurance company?
Yes. You will need to report your car accident to your insurance company as soon as possible.
How do I know the settlement the insurance company offered is fair?
Without a complete case review and analysis of medical costs, damage to your vehicle, missed work and any other injuries or losses that your Sacramento car accident may have caused, it is difficult to say what a case is worth and whether a settlement is fair. Our law firm works with professionals in medicine, economics and other fields to properly determine what your claim is worth and then pursue that amount on your behalf.
How much will an attorney cost?
Accident Lawyers works on a contingency basis, meaning you pay no legal fees for our services unless we win your case. From there, our fees are typically a previously agreed upon percentage of your total settlement or award.
Will my claim cover missed work? What types of damages can I receive financial compensation for?
Although the specific damages awarded in your car accident claim may vary, a case of this kind may cover lost wages from missed work, if this is related to your injury. You may also be entitled to compensation for medical care, damage to your vehicle, future loss of wages, future medical bills, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering.
