Valuable Advice from a Baldwin Park Car Accident Lawyer

Today's highly successful Baldwin Park car accident attorneys say you need more than a few phone calls to skillfully negotiate a car collision injury settlement. One key item is the Demand Package. Before considering its contents, we'll provide a short reminder of just how many car accidents occur in Baldwin Park, California.

Baldwin Park Car Accidents See Rise in Fatalities

In 2006, accident statistics compiled by the California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) revealed that four people were killed and 302 were injured in Baldwin Park car collisions. Impaired drivers were responsible for one death and 36 crash injuries. Bicycle accidents injured 14 and motorcycle collisions injured 21. Pedestrian accidents resulted in two fatalities and 17 injuries. In 2007, three car collisions ended in three deaths. The following year, four car crashes resulted in as many deaths.

What to Include in a Demand Package

A skilled Baldwin Park accident injury lawyer will advise that before you respond to the insurance company's initial offer, you'll need to assemble a "Demand Package" and send to the insurance adjuster. The package includes a cover letter and a record of the evidence that supports your claim.

"The cover letter should summarize the evidence and include a dollar figure for both economic and pain & suffering damages," says John Bisnar. The letter should provide details about the accident and explain why the company's insured person was at fault. "You can also include information about the driver's condition at the time of the accident," adds Bisnar. "If the driver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or if the driver had 'priors'--previous arrests for DUIs, citations for speeding, reckless driving, street racing, driving without a license or suspended license, you should include that as well," says Bisnar. Baldwin Park car crash lawyers say these facts can increase your negotiating power, since adjusters know that judges and juries regard these infractions with disdain. Lastly, ask for more compensation than you expect to receive.
