Whether a driver or passenger, if you were injured as a result of an auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation. There are several sources of potential compensation such as insurance maintained by the other driver, insurance maintained by the driver of your vehicle, or your own policy if you maintain an underinsured/uninsured motorist policy. In some cases, you may be entitled to compensation from more than one source.
Every year, thousands of people are affected by auto accidents in California. The reality is that driving in our cars is one of the most dangerous activities that we engage in our everyday lives. Unfortunately, after being injured in an auto accident, too many people suffer silently because they are intimidated or afraid of the legal system. As a result, the insurance companies come out on top by avoiding responsibility for any claims that are never brought.
You pay insurance every month to cover you if you get injured in a car accident, but the insurance companies rely on your fear of attorneys and the courts to keep that money for themselves. Worse, they take advantage of people who try and represent themselves or lawyers who are underprepared or ill-equipped to handle these cases, and many times claims are settled for far less than their fair value. As a result, innocent victims are left with the burden of their property damage, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
