Any personal injury can leave you with medical problems, medical bills, lost wages and a damaged car. You are probably suffering from the pain of the injuries and the worry about the welfare of your family. It is likely that the representative for the other driver’s insurance company will attempt to badger you into agreeing to a settlement that favors the insurance company. You should retain an accident attorney in Rocklin, CA and never deal with or even talk with another person unless your attorney approves.
The company which insured the driver who is at fault will do everything they can to make you feel like you are the bad person and you should take the token settlement and go away. You deserve to be fully compensated for your medical expenses present and future, your lost wages, repair or replacement of your car, and your pain and suffering. Your attorney will stop any contact by the other insurance company. Sevey Donahue and Talcott LLP is experienced in doing this.

He will conduct a background check using his private investigator who will also obtain accident reports, photographs, statements by witnesses, and the driving history of the responsible driver to determine if he has any history of reckless driving, accidents or DUIs. All of this information could form a picture of a driver who doesn’t drive responsibly.
