Lancaster Car Accident Lawyers
The streets, highways and freeways of Southern California are full of traffic, but they’re generally safe for law-abiding motorists. Unfortunately, accidents do sometimes happen, even to the most attentive and skilled drivers. If you’ve been hurt in an automobile collision that wasn’t your fault, you should contact Lancaster car accident lawyers with Ellis Law today. You may have the opportunity to seek damages, but you’ll need talented legal counsel in your corner.
Should I accept a settlement from the other driver’s insurance company?
Here’s the situation: you’re in a moderately serious car accident that was clearly caused by another driver’s negligence. Your car needs extensive repairs, you visited the emergency room and received treatment for a broken arm, and end up missing a week at work. The liable driver’s insurance company offers you a settlement right away. They’ll pay your emergency medical bills and cover repairs of your car. It sounds like a fair deal, but the truth is, you deserve much more. They’re hoping the promise of quick, hassle-free money will entice you to sign away your right to seek further compensation. This is why it’s important to sit down with your own car accident lawyer before you accept any offer.
Seek compensation for your injuries and avoid spiraling into debt
In the above scenario, you need to consider all the expenses associated with your accident. The liable driver’s insurance company will pay for your trip to the emergency room, but what about follow-up visits, future physical therapy, and treatment for injuries like whiplash that may manifest themselves in the days after your accident? They will pay to fix your car, but what about lost wages and living expenses while you were recuperating for a week? A Lancaster attorney from Ellis Law can help you seek compensation for all these extra expenses, plus compensation to make up for your pain and suffering. Don’t take the easy money and wish you had fought for more. Avoid expensive medical bills, credit card debt, and late fees with the help of an experienced car accident attorney.
