What To Do If You Have Been in a Car Crash in Orange County

  1. Make sure you get to safety. Experts say that staying next to your car after a crash can be dangerous, depending on where it happens.
  2. Get medical attention. Get the treatment you need as soon as possible after a crash, either from a paramedic at the scene, or later from your doctor. This is vital for your own health and wellbeing, as well as helping any future legal claim.
  3. Call the police. If there has been a car crash, the police should be involved. You can also request a copy of the police report at a later date to support a fault claim.
  4. Document the scene and preserve evidence. When you have been in a car accident, you should document everything. Take pictures or videos of the scene and vehicles using your phone, record license plate numbers, and secure witness statements or contact details.
  5. Organize your evidence. Make sure the evidence you have collected is well organized. Request copies of police reports and proof of medical treatment and bills.
  6. Contact an Orange County Car accident lawyer who specializes in OC crash cases for help.

  • Pain and suffering

The Insurance Adjuster is Not Your Friend

It is best to place your trust in a lawyer who is working for you – with your best interests in mind – rather than an insurance agent whose job is to save money for their firm.

Personal Injury Attorney, John Bisnar

California car accident attorney John Bisnar said:
“Thinking the insurance company is on your side is a big mistake. Car insurance companies give bonuses and pay raises to adjusters who settle claims in the quickest time and for the least money. The insurance adjuster is not your friend.”

Finding the Right Orange County Car Accident Lawyer

Choosing the right lawyer for your injury claim can be a big decision, and one which you should not take lightly. The success of your claim can depend on the representation provided by your attorney, so it is essential that you choose a firm with a great reputation.

You should ask these questions before hiring an attorney or law firm:

  • How long have they been in business?
  • How long has the attorney handling your case been licensed?
  • Have they worked on cases similar to your accident?
  • Are they flexible and considerate to your needs?
  • Does the attorney seem like a good listener or do they talk over you?
  • Do they go to court if need be (trial lawyers)?
  • Check their legal standing with the Bar Association of their state
  • Do they truly offer a free consultation and advance all costs?
  • Is the accident lawyer near me or close to my work?

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.
