A question that I often get asked is, “How do I make sure that I am selecting the best car wreck attorney?” When choosing a car accident attorney in California, my answer is usually one word: experience. A personal injury attorney who has trial experience is best suited to assist you in your claim. An experienced attorney will know how to package the case in the right way, and it is an experienced attorney who is best suited to handle your case in large part because they’ve handled similar cases.
Choosing a Car Accident Attorney
It is in retaining an experienced trial lawyer that you will find that these lawyers have experience litigating claims, and they speak the language of the insurance companies. When a case is prepared for trial is when a case is best positioned to secure the best possible settlement.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Another question that I often get asked is, “Is it a good idea to speak to the insurance company after I’ve been involved in an incident or I have sustained an injury?” My answer is always no. The reason you retain a lawyer is because that lawyer, in many ways, becomes your voice in advocating to the insurance company and, if it gets that far, to a jury of your peers.
It’s never a good idea to speak to the insurance company unless and until you have to. We have found that any statements that are given prior to retention of a lawyer, or even after, can often be twisted and can be used to argue things that you never meant to assert in the first place.
