California is famous for being a state that is ruled by car culture. Great weather, an urban sprawl that goes on for thousands of square miles, and Californians with a well documented love affair with the automobile has defined Southern California for many generations.
Whether it’s driving down Pacific Coast Highway on a sunny Sunday afternoon, taking the kids to school or to a number of sports and art activities, or simply running errands day in and day out; we all spend a lot of time in our cars.
Unfortunately that means, sooner or later, many of us will be involved in an auto accident. It might be a simple fender bender, but it could be a traumatic accident that causes major injuries and property damage.
Protecting Your Rights After You are Involved in an Auto Accident
When an accident happens to somebody else, it may be mentioned on a traffic report or on the evening news. It quickly becomes a statistic. But when it happens to you, depending on how bad it is, an auto accident in Irvine can quickly change the focus of your life.
If you’re injured due to the careless or reckless actions of another person, you have the right to file a claim and be compensated for your losses. This can include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related impacts.
Working with an experienced auto accident attorney not only protects your rights, it helps you focus on healing from your injuries as quickly as possible, relieving a great deal of mental stress at a time when you need that relief the most. Your attorney will be able to focus on the facts of your case and ensure you receive fair treatment when going up against attorneys and adjusters who work for large insurance companies. Because most cases are settled long before they ever go to trial, finding an attorney who is a skilled negotiator will also give you the best chance at receiving a maximum settlement in your favor.
