How Our Car Accident Lawyer Elk Grove Can Make a Difference in Your Case
Many crash victims wonder whether they really need an attorney after a car accident. After all, the at-fault driver’s insurance company may have already contacted you with a settlement amount offer.
The fact is: If you have been seriously hurt in a crash, you can’t trust a profit-minded insurance company. You need your own attorney to conduct an independent investigation and calculate an honest assessment of your current and future damages.
If you are injured in a car accident, the most important thing you should do is get medical treatment as soon as possible, if you have not done so already. Some injuries may not show up until days or weeks after the accident, and it’s important to have a medical professional document your progress. Even if you have no medical insurance, you should seek and receive appropriate medical care. Among other things, a top Sacramento car accident attorney at Demas Law Group, P.C., can help you recover and pay any medical expenses you may incur after an accident. Consulting with a personal injury expert prior to talking to the insurance company is crucial. Be certain to ensure your legal rights are protected and the value of your claim is maximized.
If you were involved in a car accident that resulted only in property damage that is covered by insurance, you may not need to consult with a personal injury attorney. However, if you have been involved in a car accident that caused you to seek medical treatment for injuries, you, or your representative (if you are incapacitated), should consider consulting with a car accident attorney at Demas Law Group, P.C., as soon as possible. Expert legal advice is highly recommended, especially for those who have suffered catastrophic injuries or have lost a loved one as a result of an accident. Those cases require legal experience, resources, and expertise to be successfully resolved.Regardless of your situation and the extent of your injuries, you’ve got nothing to lose by contacting us. At Demas Law Group, P.C., the initial consultation with a personal injury attorney is always free of charge.

Insurance companies count on you not knowing the true value of your claim. They try to tell you what it is worth and settle with you for as little as possible, before a knowledgeable attorney reviews the facts of the case. The experienced accident attorneys at Demas Law Group, P.C., know how much money will be necessary to fully compensate you for your injuries, and will typically obtain a much higher settlement for you than you would by yourself.
Passengers who are involved in car accidents are entitled to full compensation for their injuries by whoever is determined to be at fault in the accident. If the driver of the other car is at fault, then a claim is filed against that person, and their insurance company is responsible for paying the damages. If the driver with whom you were traveling is at fault, then the claim is filed against that person, and his or her insurance company is responsible for paying the damages. Occasionally, both drivers may be found to be partially at fault, and in that case, a claim can be filed against both drivers and their respective insurance companies.

I was in a car accident in California while visiting from out of state. I was driving a rental car. What should I do?
If you’re an out-of-state driver who has rented a car and then been involved in an automobile accident, things can get complex in a hurry. If it is an injury accident, the police must be contacted by law. Most major rental car companies have specific procedures for reporting all accidents in their contracts. Financial liability is determined by what caused the accident. If the other driver is at fault, then he or she is legally responsible for the damages. In some cases, the rental car company itself may be found at fault due to improper vehicle maintenance. Such cases are adjudicated in California and often involve several insurance companies, so it can be important to obtain advice from an experienced car accident attorney at Demas Law Group, P.C.
