Significant increase in fatal car accidents in California

Being involved in a car accident is a serious matter. If you or a loved one is involved in a car wreck, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. In the state of California, car accidents are steadily on the rise. Since 2013, the number of fatal car accidents increased by 13 percent.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggests the spike in fatal car accidents derive from people returning to work. The more people are on the road, the greater the risk for a car accident. Many drivers stand by the vehicles they drive due to its safety features. Since 2014, car accidents have shown a steady increase even with the smart technology newer model vehicles obtain.

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you need to take action to protect your claims. Handling your case on your own could place you in a very difficult spot. This posting discusses some of the reasons you should hire an attorney to help you if you have been injured or lost a loved one in a crash.

Understanding the law

Insurers will make you an offer and you may think it seems fair. You opt to settle your case. But, what happens if you have injuries more severe than you first realized? In many cases, you will be unable to recover additional compensation to deal with these expenses.

While these cases may seem simple and straightforward, there are many different issues that need to be exampled by a professional. This ensures that you are able to recover maximum compensation for your injuries or your loss.

Filing a lawsuit

In the event a settlement cannot be reached and agreed upon, you may need to go to court to get fair compensation. Filing a lawsuit is something that should not be done by a person who is not familiar with what happens in the courtroom. An experienced attorney can make sure that your interests are protected at all times.

No cost to you

Most personal injury cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. This means that there are no attorney's fees unless your attorney is able to successfully recover compensation on your behalf. You will not have to pay for your attorney's services at such a difficult time.

Never make any decisions about your case until you have reached out to an experienced personal injury attorney. You want to be sure that you are doing everything that you can to recover the full value of your claim, and your lawyer will be able to provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for your future.
