Seeking the Compensation You Need and Deserve After an Auto Accident

Car accident victims should to be aware of their rights and legal options. This is especially important when their insurance company is working hard to delay or minimize a personal injury claim – or deny it altogether.

I am a car accident attorney, and I represent clients in Lake County and Mendocino County, who have been injured in car accidents. If you are interested in learning about your options from an honest and trusted attorney, please contact my Clearlake area law office to schedule a free consultation.

Helping Car Accident Victims Understand Their Options

Accident victims may be eligible for sizeable compensation when a negligent party has caused a traffic accident. Reckless driving, speeding, disobeying traffic laws, failing to stop for a stop sign or drunk driving may constitute negligence.

When a driver or passengers have been injured, it is important to talk to an attorney about all possible legal options. Compensation may be available for all accident-related expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and more. However, insurance companies have vested financial interests in paying out as little as possible – often times, much less than the accident victims needs and deserves.

Anyone dealing with the aftermath of a serious motor vehicle accident should speak to a personal injury attorney about all possible legal options. I will work hard to help you seek maximum compensation for your injuries and accident-related expenses.
