The Law Says Liable Parties Must Pay for You Personal Injuries in Dollars and Cents
If you have acquired a bad injury, the law allows justice through the California tort law system. Thus, dollars may be sought to pay back your out of pocket losses. These types of losses will include your medical care. Plaintiffs can seek recompense for time away from work while convalescing, and other bills. Combined, all these economic losses are defined as “special damages.”
The genesis of these economic damages was the incident that caused a victim’s disability. Furthermore, plaintiffs as a matter of right, collect objectively reasonable compensatory damages. Compensatory damages also cover money for pain and anguish. These are “general damages.” Sometimes your suffering will be permanent. Hence, a person could get lifetime money payments from the defendant. The burden is usually borne by their insurance carrier. Either way, the plaintiff wins.

Do I Really Need Personal Injury Attorney Help?
When in the pickle of a bad accident, you must understand how insurance companies operate. Insurance companies have used every trick in the book. Finally, their goal is to deny, or devalue insurance claims. (Read more here about auto insurance bad faith law.)
Tyrannical insurance companies have used unsavory, yet legal tactics to bully and play “hide the ball.” Most of all, they do it most with unrepresented parties. They will try and use procedures like demanding to record your phone calls. Adjustors are infamous for asking loaded questions. Then, these insurance company employees will try and impeach you later. Seems like the big insurance carriers have trained their staff in these magical techniques. Hence, delay, deny, defend is the order of the day.
A Plaintiff Can Become a Victim Twice Without a Legal Representative.
Relevant here, an unrepresented victim who is already vulnerable can often exploitable. Victims are easily convinced, or “programmed” to accept much less than claims are worth. Worse still, adjusters are experts and stringing people along.
Furthermore, they like to drag it out until the right to sue has expired under the Statute of Limitations. Thus, a plaintiff becomes a victim twice. First in the accident, next when he fails to get a lawyer.
In any event, all these tactics assure the carrier that settlements will are avoidable. Finally, if they can’t get off scot free, the settlement will be very low. There is no comparison to the compensation forked over for losses by represented parties. These multinational corporations are not in business to research claims in an unbiased manner. The opposite is true.
The Absurdity of Third Party Claims Evaluators.
Even when they pay a third party to research the value of your claim, it is with a mind of paying the smallest amount. Worse still, never expect an insurer to pay its “fair market value.” Are you understanding this so far? In any event, there is no substitute for a lawshark. Furthermore, these lawyers are found at Ehline Law Firm.
Do you want to recover from the impact this bad situation has caused you? Thus, it is probably smart to contact our firm. Seems like we should at least give you a free case analysis. We could then tell you how best to proceed, even if you do not elect to retain us.
The comedy that shows how silly insurance companies are is in their low ball offers. This is common with parties having no lawyer. In fact, their own industry-funded studies dealing with parties acting in propria persona show the bias. The Insurance Research Council (IRC), conducts paid research.
They do this for many of the country’s major property & casualty associations. Thus, they conduct statistical analysis for many liability insurance companies. In addition, their case studies compare final settlement valuations. They contrasted it with victims who had lawyers and those who didn’t. Relevant here, the study results are riveting.
Forty Percent Larger Insurance Payouts to Plaintiff With Lawyers.
So let’s take a look at what the statistics say. Their industry experts concluded wounded victims who hired attorneys received on average, forty percent (40%) more at settlement. Most noteworthy, these studies go on to show that net payouts were still higher after attorneys took their fee. This is what the attorney gets for helping the victims. So attorneys got their contingency fee, and victims still got more money!
Seventy-Nine Percent More Insurance Money Goes to Represented Plaintiffs.
There is a final nail in the coffin to an unrepresented party. This same study shows settlements paid to represented plaintiffs were not just a little bit higher. As a result of being represented, parties recovered Seventy-Nine percent (79%) of the total insurance payments. Of special interest, they made up less than half of all claims presented for resolution. If that doesn’t convince you that you need a lawyer, nothing will.
As of the 2000 census, Manhattan Beach, California, had a population of 33,852. Hence, the city is in a crowded beach community. It is teaming with lots of tourists and recreation seekers. Thus, it is is a hotbed for personal injury accidents. Therefore, drunk driving wrecks and injuries are fairly common on PCH at Manhattan Beach Boulevard.
Also, many residential neighborhoods lack sidewalks. Thus, it is not uncommon getting clipped by vehicles. Hence, navigating these tight, winding avenues can be dangerous. Redondo is a California coastal city located in Los Angeles County. Thus, this makes it one of the many California cities that has major traffic congestion.
DUI Accidents Near King Harbor
There are lots of DUI related collisions near King Harbor, and the Riviera Village Area. Another hotbed is near the North Bay Galleria areas. This traffic congestion can result in auto accidents. Thus, public transportation wrecks like bus collisions are fairly common during rush hour.
Of special interest, pedestrian hit and runs often result in catastrophic injuries. North RB is hemmed in by Hermosa on the PCH coastline. Furthermore, people are constantly in traffic congestion. These commuters are headed north and south. Thus, the risks and dangers to people out and about are immense.
The South Bay is an area with lots of bars, barhopping and shops, DUI checkpoints, and DUI accidents. Consequently, large, heavy vehicles collide with lighter motorcycles all the time. The same goes for sports cars, or pedestrians. Consequently, the outcome for the bicyclist, jogger is grim.
Importance of Medical Treatment.
People involved in unfortunate situations like this should seek immediate hospital care. Victims must ensure they mitigate their damages. These individuals need to determine if there are any life-threatening problems. Therefore, this also helps create a nexus between the accident and the injury. Failure to get medical care gives the adjuster an excuse. Now he or she can blame the accident on another event.
Victims should not sabotage their own case by failing to get emergency treatment. Furthermore, the non-negligent party should not go it alone. Hiring a lawyer in the Redondo or Manhattan Beach neighboring area can be advantageous. Based on their knowledge of prior similar incidents, the lawyer has an express advantage. Ehline has already assisted locals and outsiders for accidents at these locations.
