Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
Most people are unaware of the importance of speaking with an attorney right away. However, there are benefits to retaining a Huntington Beach personal injury lawyer who understand the law and how insurance companies work. Insurance adjusters are not looking out for your best interests. Their sole job is to make sure the insurance company does not lose money. Our firm can help you with the following:
- Assess your case and advise you on the best way to proceed;
- Negotiate with insurance companies;
- We have connections to important investigators and agencies that can help push your case forward;
And so many more. For more helpful information, visit our page on the benefits of hiring a personal injury attorney.
Your First Consultation – Free With No Obligation
Our first meeting will set the tone for the rest of the attorney-client relationship. We will ask you to describe in detail what happened, if a police report was taken, any injuries sustained, etc. The length of initial consultations varies from case to case. Here are a few things to expect:
- Expect questions
- Don’t be intimidated by this. We ask as many questions as possible in order to get the details of the incident;
- Bring any documents relevant to your matter
- Medical records and bills (if applicable)
- Traffic/police reports;
- Witness statements;
- We will explain our fee structure
- If we are able to represent you, we will have you sign a HIPAA release
- This authorizes the release of your medical records from all healthcare providers you have seen since your injuries.
Our case manager will order the necessary records, however, if you already have them bringing a copy never hurts. After reviewing the facts of your case and the evidence, we will make a recommendation as to the best legal strategy to pursue.
Knowing if Negligence is Involved
A negligent act is determined by whether or not a person, business, or other entity failed in their duty to protect your safety. For instance, if a dog has a history of biting and the owner does not take the necessary precautions and the dog gets out and bites someone, that is considered negligence. Once an owner takes possession of an animal, they are liable for the actions of that animal.
Similarly, if someone drives drunk they are knowingly putting themselves and others in harm’s way. The moment someone puts another at risk, they are knowingly putting other drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists on the road at risk. By hiring a Huntington Beach car accident attorney at Silverthorne Attorneys, it guarantees that you will not have to be alone during this trying time.
