What to Expect from a Personal Injury Claim for an Auto Accident

Traffic crashes occur daily in Oakland and throughout California. Some have the potential to result in life-changing injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, head trauma, broken bones, and more. If the car wreck was the result of another party’s negligence or carelessness, a personal injury claim may be in order. This may seek reimbursement for intangible harm and financial losses associated with injuries suffered in the car accident, like medical bills, wage loss, and other related damages.

After a motor vehicle collision, the insurance company representing the other side may contact you within a few hours or days. Insurers often do so to reach injured parties at their most vulnerable time. The insurance carrier may request a recorded statement from the injured person or make a quick settlement offer. Remember that anything you say in a recorded statement may be used against you by the insurance company. Moreover, do not accept a settlement until an attorney has reviewed your car accident case first.
