When you leave your home in the morning, you most likely drive a car, take a bus, or ride a bicycle to your destination. In each of these scenarios, you are surrounded by other drivers, some of whom may not be paying attention. Unfortunately, the carelessness and negligence of others may lead to an accident. These accidents may lead to serious injury or even death (wrongful death).
Our Orange County, California-based team of injury lawyers at The Lions have achieved top results for victims of many types of accidents. Many of our clients were injured by careless drivers in an automobile accident. Others were injured by a dog attack, or were hit by a vehicle while riding a bicycle. Whatever the cause of the accident, the injury lawyers at The Lions Injury Lawyers are ready to help.
YOU VS. THE Negligent driver's INSURANCE COMPANY
The hours and days after any accident are critical. During that time, you may be contacted by the at-fault party's insurance company. You should discuss the details of your accident with our lawyers before talking to anyone from the at-fault party's insurance company. The information the insurance company will ask of you may seem harmless, but years of experience has taught the team at The Lions the importance of discussing your case with your lawyer first. We will handle all contact with the insurance company on your behalf. First, we conduct an investigation and begin preserving evidence of the facts in your case. We preserve photographs, videos, and any other evidence that may be important in your case.
Depending on the specific details of your injury, we may send an accident reconstruction expert to the scene of the accident. We will also contact and interview potential witnesses. We may also preserve the other vehicle's "black box," which may contain data indicating how fast the at-fault driver was moving, or other information that may provide greater clarification into your case. It is crucial that our team of injury lawyers at The Lions have access to all relevant information as soon as possible. We have seen the at-fault party change its story many times over the course of a single case; the sooner we have access to the facts of your case, the better.
HOW STRONG IS YOUR CASE?
The strength of your case depends on the facts of your case. We review many variables of each case in order to create a game plan that will put us in the best position to win. Most of our clients have never been involved in a serious accident before, and so we recognize that the experience can be life altering. We understand that you or your loved ones may have many questions about how to move on after an accident. Our team has handled thousands of injury cases, and we will address your fears and concerns. We take great pride in helping guide our clients through the confusing process of recovering money to compensate you for your injury.
It's common for police officers to attribute fault to one party on the police report. Sometimes the officer will put the injured party at partial or complete fault. Determination of fault on a police report is only one part of an injury case, and our lawyers have won many cases where our client was initially put at fault on the police report. If you were involved in an accident where the police report or insurance evaluation puts you at fault, this does not mean you do not have a case. We have won countless cases where the at-fault party's insurance carrier initially put our client at fault. We welcome your call to discuss the details of your case if liability or fault is disputed.
