What does a car accident lawyer do?

After your car accident, a car accident lawyer can gather information from the accident, give you legal advice, negotiate with insurance companies, and help you pursue compensation for your losses to heal from it and get back to your routine.
In Cesar Ornelas Law, we truly believe that if you are injured, your sole responsibility is to rehabilitate and get as close as back to normal as you can.

1. Conductes an investigation

Once you hire your personal injury attorney, he will have his investigations team recollect all the necessary information to prove who was at fault.

Cesar Ornelas Law counts on edge-cutting technology, which allows demonstrating facts with 3D videos that recreate the accident scene.

2. Reviews Police Reports and Medical Records and gathers eyewitness testimonies

Your personal injury lawyer will contact the right persons to get official information about your case.

Since you signed a legal contract with your lawyer, he will be able to collect all the legal information regarding your case. You don’t have to do anything.

If you are injured, your sole responsibility is to rehabilitate and get as close as back to normal as you can

3. Proves who was at fault

This is one of the most important things that make the difference between having a lawyer and not.

It doesn’t matter if you think it was your fault. It’s essential to wait for an official investigation to prove fault.

There could be a third variable in play you are unaware of, such as the other driver’s comparative fault or a vehicle defect.

4. Builds a case based on the details of the incident

Building a case requires experience, so only an experienced personal injury lawyer can do it in the best way.

Your case will be built with documents, official reports, videos, statements, and what you need to prove your innocence.

5. Establishes a strategy to seek compensation on your behalf

A high number of insurance adjusters will offer you in the first offer the lowest amount possible. They hope you accept it.

Your Personal Injury Lawyer will work on getting the maximum compensation for you.

Your lawyer will accept neither the first nor the lowest offer. He will take the best settlement for you.

6 Communicates with insurance companies, lawyers, and other involved parties on your behalf

A car accident involves at least two parties and their representatives.

Your attorney will contact each of the necessary parts to get information and negotiate the best settlement for his client.
