Costa Mesa Car Accident Lawyers

Costa Mesa in Orange County, California is a highly trafficked area serving major shopping, entertainment and commercial centers. An experienced Costa Mesa injury attorney knows, traffic means accidents, and anyone who is involved in an accident should seek the advice of a knowledgeable car crash lawyer.

Car Accident Tragedies Strike Often in Costa Mesa

The California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) reported that, in 2006,11 people died in Costa Mesa auto accidents and 855 were injured. DUI collisions accounted for six deaths and 104 injuries. Two pedestrians lost their lives and 40 were injured in traffic accidents. Motorcycle crashes resulted in two fatalities and 60 injuries.

Car Crash Victims Have Many Rights

When they get into an accident, most people think that all they're entitled to is reimbursement for medical costs or vehicle repairs. But as the best Costa Mesa accident attorney advise, car crash victims have many other rights. This includes the right to seek reimbursement for lost wages even if sick time is used. Victims also have the right to recover any expenses while their vehicle was being repaired or replaced.

Not Wise to Let Insurance Companies Handle Everything

The sad fact is that many people are highly traumatized after an accident and simply want to get things over with. They rush to their insurance companies and ask them to "handle it." This is ill advised. The problem with handing everything over to insurance companies is that these entities have no obligation to look out for victims' interests. An insurance company's goal is to limit the compensation amounts they have to pay out.

Avoid the "Revenge Lawsuit"

Skilled Costa Mesa car collision attorneys will advise against another flawed tactic--filing a "revenge lawsuit" against the driver who caused the car crash. The problem here is that these lawsuits take time, money and a considerable emotional investment. All of which takes away from the objective of being fully compensated for your losses and inconvenience. The best move is to hire an experienced car collision lawyer to skillfully negotiate and resolve the major issues that will make you whole. And to do so with the minimum amount of time and expense.

There are many car crash lawyers in Costa Mesa. When choosing the right one to represent you, look at their experience, track record, credentials and their level of commitment. Remember that he or she will be an advocate on your behalf, so you need someone who will fight for your rights and be responsive to your needs.
