Top 5 San Fernando Valley Car Accident Legal Questions
- How do I know if I need a lawyer for my San Fernando Valley car accident? If you were in a minor car accident that only involved damage to your car but you were not injured, then you probably don't need a lawyer to take on your case. If, on the other hand, you were injured or even lost a loved one (known as a wrongful death car accident) as a result of your car accident then you absolutely need the assistance and guidance of a car accident lawyer. Why?Because they can take the entire hassle of making a claim off your plate so you can concentrate on your recovery and they can maximize your recovery.
- I was already offered a settlement from the other party, should I take it? When the other side's insurance (or whomever the defendant is) quickly offers you a settlement amount following the serious car accident they are trying to do a couple things-- take advantage of your need for money by offering you quick cash and also take advantage of your lack of legal representation. They do this because it is in their best interest to quickly settle a case that they know could cost them significantly more money when you have an attorney helping you. Additionally, the figure they try to offer you is also almost always extremely low, much lower than what we could help get you. Before you take ANY settlement offer, give us a call to review your case and the offer-- if we think it is one of the rare instances in which the offer is fair we will tell you that completely free of charge. At Walch Law, we are passionate about getting the absolute most for our clients and for those that chose not to hire us and handle it on your own, we at least want to help point you in the right direction.
- How much is my San Fernando Valley wrongful death car accident worth? Wrongful death car accidents happen far too frequently in Los Angeles and we have successfully handled hundreds of them for our clients over the years. The worth of your wrongful death car accident case depends on so many factors, including: who the defendant is, the nature of the accident, role the deceased played in the accident (California is a comparative negligence state when it comes to personal injury) and much more. What a wrongful death car accident lawsuit can do is provide a sense of justice following the death and also provide some much needed funds in the wake of the loss.
- What does contingency fee mean? At Walch Law, like most personal injury law firms, we take all our cases on a contingency fee basis. What this term means is that our payment amount is contingent or dependent on how much we get for you. It is a great legal fee structure for wrongful death and personal injury cases because it means that you do not have to pay anything upfront and take on any additional financial stress and you can also feel confident that we are working as hard as possible to maximize the financial amount of your case because that also means we get paid more. Generally speaking lawyer car accident fees are between 30-40% of your total recovery and always worth it as a good lawyer can get you so much more money than if you were to try to handle your case on your own, even after their fees are paid.
- How do I find the best San Fernando Valley car accident lawyer? A simple Google search for the best Los Angeles car accident lawyer can be overwhelming with options, we get it. Best is a relative term when it comes to lawyers- there are a lot of great ones out there and there are a lot that will just hand your case off to a team of paralegals.
