Ask an experienced Lake Forest car accident attorney and he or she will tell you that the right information can be invaluable when negotiating a car accident injury claim. Particularly useful would be how claims similar to those presently under negotiation were resolved. Before getting into specifics, some CHP statistics will reveal how often car accidents occur in Lake Forest, California.

Fatal Lake Forest Car Accidents are Up

In 2006, accident statistics by the California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) showed that one person died and 211 people were injured in Lake Forest. DUI collisions accounted for one fatality and 30 injuries. One pedestrian was killed and seven were injured. And 15 bicyclists and 18 motorcyclists were injured. In 2006/2007, there were 1.8 fatal accidents per 100,000 people in Lake Forest. Sadly, there were five fatalities in 2008 compared to only one death in 2007.

Do Research on Car Accident Claims Similar to Yours

Skilled Lake Forest personal injury attorneys know that when negotiating a car accident settlement with an insurance company, knowing what similar car accident claims have solved for can bolster an argument for fair compensation. For those who have elected to negotiate without a car crash lawyer's help, getting this information can prove to be a challenge. "It takes a bit of footwork and homework to learn how similar cases have been resolved," notes John Bisnar. "A visit to the nearest law library would be a good place to start. Try to find cases that involve accidents and injuries that resemble yours. See how juries awarded those who suffered injuries similar to those you sustained--particularly in the area of pain and suffering damages."

Several publications report on car accident verdicts and settlements. Find cases that resemble your claim, copy them and build your own file of facts, then use the information as leverage when you negotiate with the insurance claims adjuster. Should you have questions, show your researched cases to an experienced Lake Forest car crash lawyer and get his or her input.

A Skilled Car Accident Lawyer Can Point You in the Right Direction

Seasoned car crash lawyers can help you select appropriate cases and weed out the ineffective ones. The best car collision lawyers offer no charge, no pressure consultations. If you've been injured in a car accident, it would serve you well to consult an experienced Lake Forest car collision lawyer.
