A San Bernardino personal injury attorney should be at the top of your list. You have a legal right to sue for damages including injury, trauma, pain, and suffering, and wage loss you may have suffered. We have experienced lawyers who will view each client’s case as their own and fight for maximum compensation.
When do you need a personal injury lawyer?
It is true that you can file a personal injury claim yourself If the accident was minor and the other party is willing to accept your claim, you may be able to handle it on your own. However, if any of the following conditions are present, you should reach out to a San Bernardino personal injury lawyer:
- Your injuries are severe. Insurance companies who pay the bills for injury lawsuits will examine your medical records. They will want to know the extent of your injuries, how long you were in recovery, and the cost of the medical attention you received. They will factor all of this into any settlement offer. Hiring a lawyer can increase the likelihood that you will receive full compensation.
- Your injuries are permanently disabling. If, as a result of the accident, you will require long-term care or are permanently disabled, that’s a clear indication that you need a personal injury attorney. You need professional help to determine the impact of your injuries on your future earning potential. Your loss of past and future income could be a significant part of your overall damages.
- The insurance company is refusing to pay. For a variety of reasons, the at-fault party’s insurance company may refuse to make a fair settlement offer or any offer at all. Attorneys are skilled at negotiation with these companies and can leverage the details of your particular situation to achieve a better outcome than you might otherwise receive without the help of a lawyer. If you suspect the insurance company is acting in bad faith, a lawyer may be needed to litigate a bad faith insurance claim on your behalf.
