Need an Orange County Car Accident Lawyer? Here’s 4 Signs That You Do!

Had a little fender bender today in Orange County traffic? You probably don’t need a personal injury attorney. However, if your car accident was more serious and you feel like you may be in the legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver, then you might want to consider a car accident lawyer.

Here at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we can help you recover financial compensation for medical expenses, damaged property and more while also collecting and reviewing evidence that may justify your liability in the accident, if any.

In many cases, California residents are unsure of whether they need an attorney or not following a car accident. It’s a complex situation, emotions are high and you’re probably hurt. It’s hard to figure out what to do. But that’s what we’re here for.

Here are four signs you may need to give us a call so that we can examine your situation:

  1. Was someone seriously injured? Did someone die in the car accident? While this may be a sore subject because you are hurt or grieving, this is important in determining your need for a personal injury attorney. In a situation where someone was seriously hurt or died, the litigation can be quite complex and you have many legal-related concerns to ponder over. However, the potential to recover damages can be high and it’s always helpful to have a legal professional to help you navigate the process.
  2. Was someone involved in the accident uninsured? Although your insurance policy probably has uninsured motorist coverage, in most cases, it won’t foot the whole medical bill and damages. However, with the proper litigation, we can help you recover damages with a civil lawsuit against the negligent and uninsured individual.
  3. Do you need evidence? If you need evidence related to the car crash, then you may not be able to get it on your own. A lot of evidence related to car accidents are sealed and require a court order to obtain it. As an example, some vehicles are equipped with special devices that can determine if a person was wearing a seat belt, how fast they were driving and more.
  4. Are you due for a settlement meeting or hearing? You can save a lot of legal fees by reaching a settlement prior to a court date. However, they are going to try to give you a low-ball offer – an offer that is much less than what you likely deserve after what you’ve been through. With Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. on your side, you are sure to get every penny that you deserve, as we have the experience and expertise to negotiate worthy settlements.

A personal injury attorney is not always necessary following a car accident. However, if you are uncertain about the way things are being handled, feel you are owed more than what the insurance company is trying to offer you or anything of the sort, it is always in your best interests to consult with a car accident lawyer.

Give Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. a call today if you feel like you need help in recovering the money that you deserve following a serious or fatal car accident in Orange County.
