As you are driving around the city, you don’t expect that another car is going to slam into yours; however, this happens to people on a daily basis. We understand that you might be shocked when it does happen to you. One of the best things that you can do in these cases is to remember that you must protect your rights.
You might be able to seek compensation after a car crash. This possibility exists if the person who hit your vehicle was at fault for the crash. If you think that there is a chance that you will seek compensation, you can’t make anyone think that you are accepting fault for the accident. This means you need to be careful about what statements you make. Don’t say that you are sorry or say anything that might be construed as an admission of fault.
We know that this is a difficult time for you. Not only are you likely dealing with the logistical nightmare that comes with having a damaged car, you might be trying to heal from injuries. We can help to take some of the weight off your shoulders by working with you to address the legal claim for compensation.
When you want to seek compensation, make sure that you don’t take too long to make this happen. California has a strict two-year statute of limitations for adult personal injury victims. Once this time passes after the accident, you can’t take action so you will be left to cover all of the expenses from the accident yourself.
