Frequently Asked Questions
After being involved in a car accident, you may have numerous questions and concerns. By calling an attorney at our offices at 1-800-358-9617, you can get valuable information and answers to your questions. Your initial consultation is free, but we have also included some frequently asked questions on this page, for your convenience.
Can an attorney help me deal with the insurance company?
Most likely, yes. You will need to deal with the insurance company after any San Francisco car accident, and it is possible that the insurance company will attempt to take advantage of you by offering you a settlement that is below the true value of your claim. An attorney can step in and put necessary pressure on the insurance company to treat you fairly, including negotiating on your behalf for a fair settlement.
How much is my car accident case worth?
Without a complete investigation of all aspects of your case, it is difficult to say what a particular car accident claim may be worth. The extent of injury and property damage involved, as well as whether you were at all responsible, may affect the value of your claim. To learn more, contact a San Francisco car accident attorney at our offices.
Will non-economic damages be covered, such as psychological trauma?
In a car accident claim in San Francisco, it is possible that you may be entitled to financial compensation for non-economic damages that you have suffered. As an example, dealing with scarring or disfigurement caused by a car accident may have a profound psychological impact on a victim. In matters such as this, the victim may be able to seek financial damages for this as well as economic damages such as medical bills or lost wages from missed work.
When should I involve a lawyer?
Generally speaking, it is best to involve a lawyer as early as possible. This can help with the proper filing of your insurance claim as well as to benefit you in all aspects of your case. Early intervention can assist a lawyer in having a more significant impact on your case.
What if the other driver was uninsured?
Even if you were involved in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, you may be able to recover money from your own insurance policy or perhaps from another resource. Your attorney can evaluate your particular case to see what financial compensation you may be entitled to receive.
I think I was at fault. Should I still consult a lawyer?
Even if you believe you were partially or fully at fault in causing your San Francisco car accident, you may still need help with your own insurance claim. A thorough investigation of your case may also reveal that you are not completely at fault or that the accident was the other driver's or another party's fault entirely. It is important that you do not give up hope, as a lawyer's investigation may uncover surprising information.
