Auto accidents are unfortunately common in our area. Riverside County’s explosive growth in recent years combined with inadequate road infrastructure has resulted in hours of gridlock every week for many commuters. Besides the extra time and hassle caused by all this traffic, the average daily commute has become more dangerous. Each minute spent in traffic increases the risk of being injured in a car accident.
If you suffer from an injury in an automobile accident, many times the pain of the physical injury is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Your health insurance and auto insurance providers are likely to try to stick each other with the bill, all while your credit is being trashed by unpaid medical debt. And if the accident is someone else’s fault, the whole process can take even longer.
This system is inherently unfair to the injured party. Very few individuals are well-equipped to deal with claims adjusters and insurance company attorneys on a good day, much less when they are trying to recover from the stress and trauma of a car accident. That is why it can be beneficial to have your own attorney fighting for you. A good personal injury lawyer knows how to deal with the insurance companies and will help get you the compensation you need for your injuries.
