What Does a Cerritos Personal Injury Attorney Do?

When you file a claim, you must prove the other party was negligent and that their negligence caused the accident and your subsequent injuries and other damages. The process of handling a complex claim alone can be overwhelming, especially if you have no experience with personal injury law or have never negotiated with an insurance company before. This is where a personal injury attorney can help.

At Lem Garcia Law, our personal injury attorneys can help by:



Investigating the Accident

Our personal injury lawyers will visit the scene of the accident to gather valuable evidence that can strengthen your claim. We will also take photos of the accident scene, including anything that may have contributed to the crash, such as poor road conditions.



Gathering Evidence

Our personal injury attorneys will gather evidence that can strengthen your claim and prove negligence.

Evidence can include:

  • Accident report
  • Photos of your injuries and vehicle damage
  • Video surveillance footage
  • Phone records
  • Employment records
  • Medical records
  • Medical bills
  • Witness statements
  • Statements from your treating physicians

And more.



Establishing Liability

We will work with experts, such as accident reconstructionists, to determine what caused the accident and which party was negligent.



Negotiating With the Insurance Company

We will handle all communication with the insurance company to protect your rights and your claim. Doing so will prevent the insurance company from contacting you directly.

Insurance companies often try to contact the injured party to record their statement, while asking misleading, confusing questions that can cause the accident victim to admit fault or state that their injuries are not as severe as they claim they are. Insurance adjusters may also offer a low settlement, hoping the fast cash will be enough to make the injured party go away. We will accurately value your claim and negotiate with the insurance company until they offer the fair settlement you deserve.

What is the Statute of Limitations in California?

In California, accident victims will have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. If you miss this important deadline, your case may be dismissed and you will not be able to pursue compensation for your accident-related damages. Two years may seem like a long time, but a successful lawsuit takes time to investigate and build. That’s where the personal injury lawyers at Lem Garcia Law come in.

When you work with a personal injury attorney at Lem Garcia Law, our legal team will handle every aspect of your case, including filing the lawsuit correctly and on time.



What’s the Average Injury Settlement After An Injury Accident?

Once your personal injury lawyer looks at all of the evidence from the accident, they can determine what damages you’re entitled to and what will be a fair settlement amount for what you’ve suffered. Their goal is to ensure that all of the medical costs related to the injuries you sustained in the accident are covered for as long as treatment is needed.

They will also work with:

  • Medical professionals
  • Your treating physicians
  • Economists
  • Life care planners

And other professionals to take into account potential future problems that may arise from your injuries. If you sustained a permanent disability, they will calculate what the future medical costs will be, including medical care such as:

  • Surgeries
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Modifications made to the home and vehicle
  • Potential health complications due to the disability
  • Assistive medical devices needed

And more.

They will also pursue compensation for lost income if you’re unable to work, and determine the damages for the mental distress, and any loss of quality of life caused by the accident.

For your personal injury attorney to get the most value out of your claim, remember:

  • Never speak with the other party’s insurance provider or defense attorney
  • Do not admit fault
  • Gather as much information from the accident scene as possible
  • Do not sign anything from the insurance company until your attorney has reviewed the documents
  • Make it to every doctor’s appointment and follow your doctor’s instructions closely
  • Do not discuss your case with anyone and never post photos or information regarding your accident on social media
