When some Los Angeles residents are injured because of the negligence of others, their first thought is to settle their injury case on their own by dealing with the insurance agency of the party at fault. However, most individuals quickly realize that because of the complications of the claim, or because the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable offer, they need to seek the help of a personal injury attorney.
Some victims sustain injuries so severe that they are left permanently disabled and unable to work. This increases the value of their case as well as the amount of money they might recover. Hiring a personal injury attorney will help the victim to maximize their compensation.
Insurance companies also frequently deny liability. They will claim that the individual they insured is not at fault for the accident. At this point, a personal injury attorney will be able to use the testimony of expert witnesses as well as other information they found through the course of their investigation to prove that the injuries their client sustained were the result of negligence or incompetence on the other party’s part.
A third reason why some people choose to use the services of a personal injury attorney is because the liable individual's insurance company may deny the claim. They may say that the particular injury or accident the victim sustained is not covered by their insurance. Attorneys can help navigate these sticky situations to bring about a good outcome for their clients.
