Ask Questions, Take Careful Notes

Whittier Car Accident LawyerYou will want to start by asking an insurance adjuster what specific amounts he's allocated to reimburse you for each item of damage. "Your itemized list should match his in terms of expenses and losses," says John Bisnar. "You should also ask how he arrived at the amounts allocated for your pain and suffering." This is one area that can get pretty complicated. If you don't fully understand something, ask for a detailed explanation. And write down the answer to every question. The details of this Q&A session will be valuable in later negotiations.

Remember, you'll want to learn as much as you can about the whole compensation process. A Whittier car accident lawyer will know that the claims process can get pretty complex. He also knows that insurance company negotiators are skilled professionals who do this on a daily basis.

Most accident victims are novices when it comes to negotiating in this area, and they also have many other concerns deal with, so it's easy to get confused with insurance policy jargon. It pays to ask questions because being informed boosts your bargaining position. You'll be less likely to be surprised by a negotiator's language and tactics.

Negotiating Tactics

"Through years of experience, the most successful car crash lawyer will have gained vital negotiating skills," notes John Bisnar. "These tactics can help you sidestep costly mistakes during the negotiating process." The most reputable lawyers offer no charge, no pressure consultations. You owe it to yourself to seek their wise counsel before tackling car crash negotiations on your own."

Whittier Car Accidents Linked to DUI Offenders

As many car accident lawyers know, Whittier has experienced considerable growth, especially since the 1990s and currently has a population that is soon to exceed 90,000. Regrettably, this growth has also created the climate for more car accidents. As one might expect, many of these car accidents are caused by those driving under the influence.

A city's rapid growth, combined with scofflaws who insist on driving drunk, can result in some very tragic car crashes. In its pro-active efforts to remove drunks and other traffic violators from city streets and prevent tragic car collisions, the Whittier Police Department set up a Driving Under the Influence Checkpoint that operates periodically between 5:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. during weekends. By having the DUI checkpoint police and local officials hope to decrease the number of car accidents in Whittier.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“My sister in law referred me to Bisnar Chase after I was rear ended on the 405 in January. They went over everything with me for best and worst case scenarios of my car accident claim. I fully knew what to expect and was informed every step of the way. That was a major factor to me! In addition to my settlement which I was really happy with, I couldn't believe how great their whole staff treated me. I really felt like "me" as a person mattered a lot to them. Would highly recommend!”

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”
