The answer depends on the type and circumstances of the accident. We like to remind clients that insurance companies are for-profit entities. They want to keep the money they have and increase their bottom-line. Paying out large settlements for accident claims can eat into that profit, so it is in their best interest to pay out as little as reasonably possible following an accident. They are looking out for their best interests, not yours. Having an attorney on your side greatly increases your chances of negotiating a fair compensation package. Unfortunately, it takes having an attorney to demonstrate to many companies that you are serious about recovering damages and that you won’t stand for being taken advantage of.
The attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm will aggressively protect your rights and negotiate on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve from an insurance company or negligent party. For a free consultation contact us at (916) 999-9000.
The answer depends on a number of factors. Typically, a compensation package will include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are fairly easy to identify and tabulate. Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages or income, and property damage. You may also be able to recover non-economic damages which tend to be more subjective and include things pain and suffering, disfigurement, or loss of companionship. Determining what your claim is worth means taking a detailed look into both the type of accident and the circumstances that contributed to the accident. While personal injury law is covered under one umbrella, the rules outlining compensation can vary depending on the type of accident involved.
If you are injured, you should consult with our office immediately. An injury case requires two things (1) Liability and (2) Damages. We will review your case to determine who is liable for injuring you and how much money you may be entitled to for your damages. Our consultation is free and there is no obligation.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking you don’t have a case. If we determine that someone is liable for injuring you and you have suffered damages, under the California law you are entitled to be compensated.
If you have any questions regarding your personal injury case contact one of our Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyers now. And remember, all questions and consultations are free. There is never a charge until we win your case and get you compensated.
One of the greatest mistakes people make following a collision is not calling the police. However, if you have just been in a collision and have not filed a police report it may not be too late. You should still go down to the police department and file a police report today. In fact, several police departments may even allow you to go online and file a police report. It is never too late to file a police report, but the sooner the better.
This traffic collision report may be very helpful for you following a collision. One of the many benefits that come from calling an officer is basic traffic collision documentation. For example, one standard practice of an officer is to take the names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information of the people involved in the collision and any potential witnesses. Obviously, this would include the at fault driver and in addition to his name and contact information it will generally also include his insurance information. This insurance information provides you the information you will need to set up your property damage and injury claim. Having the information about the insurance of the party at fault in the police report will speed up the process of setting up your claim.
Additionally, the witness contact information in the traffic collision report will allow you, or your attorney to follow up with the witnesses and obtain further statements if that is necessary.
The traffic collision report will also contain critical witness statements regarding the collision. Many times the at fault driver is interviewed by the police officer at the scene and may simply admit that he wasn’t paying attention, or will admit that the collision is his fault. Again these statements regarding the cause of the collision are critical to your claim.
In some instances, the at fault driver after he leaves the scene of the accident will change his mind and will make statements to his own insurance company that the collision might not have been his fault.
In those instances having the police officer at the scene documenting all witnesses statements, including the at fault drivers statements admitting fault will be invaluable in proving your claim, if the at fault driver ever tries to change his story.
Again, it is always the best practice to call the police when in a car accident, regardless of the damage to the vehicles and your injuries
