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.
