How a Burlingame Accident Attorney Can Help You
You may wonder how hiring a personal injury lawyer will help you. If you are already working with an insurance company, you may feel you can rely on the insurer to settle your claim. Unfortunately, relying purely on an insurer can be dangerous. Not all insurance claims are approved and result in a payout. However, your claim is more likely to result in a settlement if you have a lawyer. Additionally, not every settlement is as much as it could be. You are more likely to maximize your payout by having an attorney negotiate on your behalf. When you hire a personal injury attorney in Burlingame, you will benefit from:
- An in-depth investigation: After an accident that causes injuries or fatalities, insurers will investigate. However, you should not rely on their conclusions. The insurer is not investigating the case and analyzing the evidence in the best light for you. However, we will. You will benefit from having Harris Personal Injury Lawyers thoroughly investigate the accident and gather evidence. We will obtain as much information as we can, often through photos, videos, police and accident reports, eye witness statements, and expert opinions.
- Legal resources: In many personal injury cases, it is necessary to hire an expert witness. Some experts are used to prove fault in an accident, such as a motor vehicle accident re-constructionist. Others are medical experts, and we may hire one or more to prove the type of injuries you have suffered and their myriad consequences. We may also utilize economic experts to prove the financial damages you have suffered already and will in the future. After years of representing accident victims, we are well connected to experts and other legal resources we can use to build your case.
- A thorough calculation of your damages: Do you know how much your case is worth? Unless you have spoken with an accident lawyer, you have to answer no. It is impossible to determine an appropriate value for your case without an in-depth analysis of your physical, psychological, and financial injuries, as well as other relevant factors in your case. After a Burlingame personal injury lawyer has investigated your case and obtained necessary expert opinions, we will discuss with you the potential value of your claim.
- Litigation experience: You may not look forward to being part of a lawsuit. However, filing a personal injury claim is often in your best interests after an accident. By filing suit, your lawyer can benefit from the discovery period. Also, the insurer takes your claim seriously and is more likely to settle. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our attorneys are highly experienced in litigating accident claims in California courts.
- A skilled negotiator: In many accident cases, an insurer will offer a settlement. This initial settlement is typically low. Instead of accepting a payout that does not cover your damages, you will benefit from our Burlingame personal injury lawyers making a counter-demand for more appropriate compensation, and then negotiation a fair settlement.
