Did you know Tarzana is named after Tarzan (yes, the fictional jungle character from the movies). Well that, among many other things makes this San Fernando Valley city a popular place to work and visit. It is also the site of numerous car accidents or the home of car accident victims. As local Tarzana car accident lawyers that have helped thousands of clients over our 40 years in business, we know just how devastating a serious car accient can be and we are here to help.
Here's a look at some of the more common Tarzana car accident questions we get from our clients:
- I am from Tarzana but my car accident happened elsewhere (i.e. Orange County, Ventura, etc.) is it better to hire a car accident lawyer near me or one near where the accident took place? Great question! You get into a serious car accident and hiring a lawyer can be a confusing process but it shouldn't be. Proximity to your house versus proximity to the location of the car accident can be an important consideration but the good lawyers will make either work. We handle cases throughout California and when the accident is near us but the client isn't we make it work and vice versa. Those Los Angeles-based car accidents just mean that meeting you and gathering evidence is more local but that is for us to make work, not you. Ultimately, you want to go with a law firm that will get the job done and that is what we do at Walch Law.
- How long will my Tarzana car accident case take? Here's the one thing we can guarantee, the sooner you call us the sooner we can help get you paid. Other than that, how long your car accident will take depends on the nature of the accident, the extent of your injuries and who the defendant is-- when you come in for your initial free consultation with us we can talk more about the process and give you a good estimate how what you can expect. Generally speaking, settlements are much faster than trials and the fastest cases are those when the injuries are clearly documented (GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR!), liability is not up for debate and the defendant has the insurance coverage to cover your claim.
- How much does a car accident lawyer cost? Looking around online for how much you would be paying a lawyer following your car accident and having a hard time finding the answer? Here's why-- most personal injury lawyers take on your case on a contingency fee basis meaning that not only do they not get paid until you do (meaning no money out of pocket) but that the amount they get paid also depends on how much they get for you making it difficult to give an exact number. Most contingency fees are between 33-40% of your recovery if that is helpful and always worth it with us. We are super upfront about our fees and everything else.
