How Our Colma Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
After an accident, you and your family are likely facing a lot of bills. There are almost always medical bills. These can seem catastrophic if you did not have health insurance coverage, or if your coverage is particularly limited. If you lost a loved one, you may need to pay several thousands of dollars for a proper funeral and burial. In either situation, you may be facing life without your or your loved one’s income, and it can be challenging to make ends meet. For all of these reasons and more, it is best to talk with an experienced accident attorney in Colma about obtaining compensation. In order to pursue a financial settlement for you physical, emotional, and financial injuries, our Colma personal injury lawyers will:
- Investigate: The first step we must take is figuring out what happened, why, and because of who. This is essential in determining whether you have a valid personal injury or wrongful death claim.
- Analyze the evidence: Through our investigation, we will have obtained a great deal of evidence. This may include a police or crash report, photos and video, eye witness statements, physical objects, and expert opinions. By carefully reviewing and analyzing this evidence, we will determine who was at fault for the accident and who is liable for compensating you. This may or may not be the same party. For example, if an employee who was working at the time was careless, then their employer may be liable.
- Calculate your damages: Your damages encompass your physical, psychological, and financial injuries. By working closely with you, your doctors, and experts, we will determine the value of all of these damages. Your economic damages, including medical expenses and loss of income are relatively easy to quantify. Your non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability and/or disfigurement will require another method, such as a multiplier of your economic losses or a per diem amount.
- Communicate with the insurer: After many types of accidents, you will work with the liable party’s insurer to recover compensation. Dealing with an insurance adjuster can be difficult and stressful. We recommend having a Colma accident lawyer do this for you. We will make sure the insurance company receives all of the information, documentation, and proof it needs to approve your claim.
- Negotiate a settlement: Once your personal injury or wrongful death claim is approved by the insurer, we will participate in negotiations. Most of the time, an insurer’s first offer is too low. Our negotiations will seek to get you the most money possible for your injuries.
- Represent you at trial: There are many situations in which an insurance settlement is not possible or does not occur. It may be that the at-fault party does not have insurance. We have handled many claims in which the damages exceed the insurance policy’s limit. Also, at times, insurance settlement negotiations break down over a factual disagreement. In these situations, we may recommend pursuing compensation through a lawsuit and trial.
