RIVERSIDE, California (March 10, 2015) — People who are injured in a traffic accident may think they don’t need a personal injury attorney, until that is, they are offered an unfair settlement by the insurance company.
“Most people think the insurance companies are their friends, but what they may not realize is that these companies are in business to make money,” said Attorney James Johnson. “They make money in two ways: First, when people buy insurance policies, and second, by limiting how much they pay out when a claim is made.”
It’s frustrating when you are hurt in a car accident and the insurance company undervalues your property damage claim, but it’s even worse when they diminish the value of your injury claim. Under California law, you are entitled to be made physically and financially whole again after being hurt in a collision, but often this isn’t the case as many drivers do not know how to negotiate a fair claim for themselves.
Johnson Attorneys Group is a personal injury law firm that represents clients who have been injured in traffic accidents throughout California.
We know how difficult it is to negotiate a fair settlement from the insurance company so that’s why we are here to help you every step of the way.
Before they issue a settlement, the insurance companies will examine all the facts of your case to determine its value. The amount of insurance available to those injured in the crash is determined by how much each party purchased including uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage bought by the injured people.
Another factor that determines value is the extent of your injuries and losses including property damage and lost wages. There may also be multiple parties who are liable for your injuries and losses and other factors depending on the circumstances.
Johnson Attorneys Group will gather all the relevant facts in pursuit of justice on your behalf. We want you to get better and get a fair settlement.
