The law is unclear and insurance companies always seem to be hiding something. We get that the time following an accident can be incredibly confusing and you might feel deserpate to get the money you need. Here's a look at the answers to some of the most common Thousand Oaks car accident questions we get.
- What's the difference between a Thousand Oaks personal injury and wrongful death car accident lawsuit? A wrongful death lawsuit is a type of personal injury lawsuit. As the name implies, wrongful death means that the lawsuit revolves around the responsibility for a death that should not have occurred. Car accidents often end in death and when they do, this is the type of lawsuit we will file for you.
- How long do I have to file a Thousand Oaks car accident claim? One of our most common questions about a very important deadline you do not want to miss. Legally referred to as the statute of limitations, most Thousand Oaks car accident victims have two years from the time of their accident to file a claim. While we know that getting in touch with an attorney is not on the top of your list following a serious accident or death of a loved one, the sooner you act the sooner we can get started getting you the money you deserve. In some situations that involve suing a city, state or government entity (for instance, say a city trash truck hit you), you only have six months to get a claim filed so time is of the essence. Too many people take too long and when you miss the deadline to file a car accident lawsuit, you miss the chance to get paid.
- Is it better to take the insurance offer or call a lawyer? 99% of the time, a lawyer even after they take their fee will get you more money than if you take the initial offer from insurance companies. Why? Because that initial offer is them hoping you don't talk to a lawyer and need the money right away. Do not take the money before getting in touch with us. In some instances, we can double that number in a matter of weeks.
Dealing with the devastation of a serious car accident can be overwhelming. For many of our clients, they say that they feel better and recover faster after they hire us because they stop worrying about money and not getting the best deal and start focusing on their own personal recovery. We are available 24/7 to disucss your Thousand Oaks car accident so get in touch with us immediately to discuss your case further.
