What should I do if I sustained a personal injury in Fountain Valley?

That depends. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Did I need medical attention following the incident?
  • Did I have to take time off work to recover?
  • Was my injury the fault of someone elses negligence?

If you answered yes to any of these, it may be in your best interest to speak with a skilled personal injury lawyer in Fountain Valley who will help protect your legal rights.

Bisnar|Chase personal injury attorneys can help prove liability for the incident. It can be difficult to prove the cause of an accident. An attorney can work with investigators and witnesses to determine who was responsible for the incident and who should be held accountable for the victims' injuries, damages and losses.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

If your accident was the fault of someone else, their insurance company may write you a check to cover some or all of your damages and sufferinh. Very often these claims, especially car accident claims may be settled out of court. However, sometimes, the case may have to be taken to trial. Knowing and understanding how to deal with your insurance company can be extremely critical especially in terms of getting the best possible recovery in your personal injury case. Here are some tips to follow and pitfalls to avoid when you deal with the insurance company:

  • Be cooperative: It is important that you cooperate with your insurance adjuster. The job of an adjuster is to investigate your claim, talk to witnesses, review pertinent reports and inspect any physical damage. He or she will then use this information to determine the rate of compensation.
  • Do not settle too quickly: If the at-fault party's insurance company tries to rush you to a quick settlement, please avoid doing so. It is to your advantage to wait until you know and understand the nature and extent of your injuries and the type of treatment you will require in the future. Meanwhile, it is important that you document all your bills and expenses.
  • Be careful about giving information: Remember that the insurance adjuster will try to get information from you that will help him or her minimize your payout. Do not give the adjuster access to your medical records or provide a recorded statement without consulting your own injury lawyer.
