- In personal Injury
A good Orange County auto accident lawyer doesn’t use a one-size-fits-all case for every client, but comes up with a custom theory of your case based on a careful examination of facts such as the following:
– Medical evidence documenting your injury (this will require you to fill out authorization forms).
– Medical bills you have incurred as a result of your injury.
– Police reports.
– Witness statements.
– Applicable law, including statutory law (laws passed by the legislature) and case law (law based on judges’ interpretation of statutory law).
If the facts of your auto accident injury claim warrant it, your lawyer may also conduct additional research by visiting the scene of the accident or hiring a private investigator.
After conducting his or her research into the facts of your case, your Orange County auto accident lawyer will contact the insurance company for the person who caused your injury. After you are represented by a lawyer, you should not try to communicate directly with the insurance company; all communication will take place through your lawyer.
Though he or she will advise you on what he or she thinks is the best course of action, your lawyer will not be able to make major case decisions like settling with the opposing party’s insurance company without consulting with you first.
If you have been injured in an Orange County auto accident and you are not already represented by an Orange County auto accident lawyer, call Samer Habbas at (888) 848-5084 to schedule a free consultation.
