All of a sudden and when you least expect it you’re now involved in a car accident. This is because no one plans to get into a car accident in the first place. You have the option to put a claim with your insurance company and let them look after your best interest or you can hire an attorney to do it for you. So when is it that you need an attorney?

If the accident is minor, there is no visible property damage, and you and the other driver feel “fine” then most people think that it is okay to just report it to their insurance company or perhaps even to let is go. However, they may not be aware of a prevalent medical condition in these types of accidents known as “whiplash”. Whiplash occurs when your neck is forcefully and rapidly moved back and forth. This condition can cause severe pain that may require the care of a chiropractor. Unfortunately, these symptoms may develop hours if not days after the accident, after you reported to your insurance company that you were “fine”. Consequently, your insurance company may now object in providing treatment. Please know that every accident is different. Even in a minor bump such as this one, we recommend you call an experienced attorney such as one from the LA Jewish Lawyer network at 855 977 1212 for a Free Consultation to advise you on the best way to protect your rights.

If your car accident involves property damage the chances of injury are much higher than in the previous scenario. Insurance companies will typically conduct an investigation and place liability on who they think is the responsible party. They may also assign responsibility by percentages and pay accordingly. Here is where it is highly recommended that you get a top Personal Injury Attorney with courtroom experience. An experienced attorney from the LA Jewish Lawyer network can conduct his or her own investigation and catch things that insurance companies may conveniently miss. Also, because an attorney can file a lawsuit at his pleasing, insurance companies can be more willing to negotiate for higher compensations in order to avoid a lawsuit. Remember that insurance companies already have experience and work with top lawyers in order to maximize their profits at your expense. Do not let this be you, call 855 977 1212 for a Free Consultation directly with an attorney today!

Accidents are unplanned and as such they can unexpectedly turn ugly, not only with serious property damage but with serious injury or even death. This is the type of scenario no one wants but it’s always best to be prepared. In this scenario it is almost certain that law enforcement will be involved to aid and make a report of the event. At this point it is best for you to collaborate with law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics to ensure your life and injuries will be attended to. However, it’s best to report that you “do not know” if you’re doing well since many symptoms, such as in the case of whiplash above, develop hours or even days after accident. You do not want to regret reporting that you were “fine” when you actually did not know. At the same time, this is also the type of accident that insurance companies guard themselves against the most because they’re costly for them. In fact, accidents of this caliber often reach or even exceed policy limits. It is imperative you do not file your claim against your insurance alone. An experienced car accident lawyer from the LA Jewish Lawyer network will conduct their own investigation and determine your innocence or the lowest responsibility possible. For example, there are instances where poor signaling or inadequate street maintenance can make the city liable for your injuries and damages as well. Only an experienced attorney will be able to determine responsibility on your behalf while ensuring that you get adequate medical care. Recovering money from insurance companies after such a traumatic event is in itself a traumatic experience you won’t need.  Luckily, LA Jewish Lawyer has a network of courtroom experienced top Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers and Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorneys that are ready to fight for you.
