Los Angeles Car Accident FAQ

Whether your car accident was in Calabasas, Woodland Hills, downtown LA, or Pacific Palisades, there's a tremendous amount of confusion following a seriously accident. Here's a look at some of the most common questions we get from our clients:

  1. How do I find the best Los Angeles car accident lawyer? Searching the internet for personal injury legal help can be overwhelming and there are a lot of law firms that want your business. Ultimately, you want a firm that has the experience (we have 40+ years in the business), the success record (95%+) and a hands-on approach to helping you in your time of need. Walch Law has all those things and more. Our fees are extremely reasonable- usually around 25-33% (since we know your next question is how much does a Los Angeles car accident lawyer cost) and always worth it.
  2. What should I do following a car accident? First and foremost, you need to concentrate on your physical and emotional needs immediately following an accident because failure to do so might make you significantly more injured. If you can, document everything you can about the accident scene and get relevant witness information. All of this is extremely valuable evidence that an help maximize your financial recovery down the line.
  3. I've received an insurance offer already, should I take it? Probably not. Here's what's happening with those really quick and fast insurance offers following your Los Angeles car accident-- they are trying to entice you with quick money while you do not have a lawyer to tell you just what a lowball offer it is. We have rarely seen an initial insurance offer that we thought was fair but if we, we will tell you to take it (free of charge, of course). Working with an experienced Los Angeles car accident lawyer gets is always worth it.
  4. The other driver doesn't have insurance, what are my legal options? Getting hit by a driver not carrying insurance definitely can add an additional lawyer of frustration to your already frustrating Los Angeles car accident. The good news is that you still have legal options and we can help you by filing an uninsured motorist claim against your own insurance. Don't worry, doing so will not raise your premiums down the line and this is something you have been paying into in case this very scenario ever happened to you. The most you can get from your own insurance is the policy limits (unless there is also a insurance bad faith case) but for some this can be a sustantial amount of money and always worth pursuing. If you have been hit in Los Angeles by an uninsured driver or a hit and run, we can still help get you paid. 
  5. I was partly responsible for the car accident, can I still file a claim with insurance? Yes. Too many Los Angeles drivers make the mistake of thinking they cannot get car accident money if they played a role in the accident. While states differ on liability analysis, California is a comparative negligence state which means that you can get money for the % of the car accident that you were not responsible for. For instance, if it is found that you were 50% responsible for an accident on the 101 freeway, your recovery will be cut by 50% but when it is a serious accident with injuries and property damage, that 50% can still be a significant amount of money.
