Dealing with the aftermath of an auto accident can be confusing and stressful. It’s not always as easy as filing a claim with an insurance company and then waiting for your check. Insurance companies don’t usually want to payout what you deserve. In fact, many times what insurance pays doesn’t even cover the cost of damages.
Studies have shown that victims who choose not to use an attorney are paid out much less than those who hire an attorney. Don’t make the mistake of not using an experienced lawyer to settle your claim for you.
As a Riverside County auto accident victim, it is important to know your legal options. An experienced attorney can give you insight on how the settlement process works. Statistically, they also can get you a much higher payout than if you were to represent yourself. You may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:

They will know how to get the most out a settlement. They also will know what documentation and evidence you should obtain, such as:
