After an accident, many Los Angeles residents wonder whether they should hire an attorney. A personal injury attorney can help accident victims sort through the emotional turmoil and stress of an automobile accident. Attorneys help their clients get compensation for injuries and damages to the vehicle. They represent clients in personal injury court battles. Most importantly, they give clients advice on how to deal with insurance companies.
When a person is injured in an automobile accident, his first priority is getting medical care. The longer a person waits to get treated after an automobile accident, the harder it is to prove that the injuries he sustained came from the car accident. If you were not at fault for the accident, the other driver’s liability insurance will cover your medical bills. If the driver who hit you was uninsured, the underinsured motorist part of your policy should cover you.
