Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Protecting Your Rights to Full and Fair Compensation
If you have been injured in the Los Angeles area, you have rights. Selecting a competent and experienced personal injury lawyer is crucial to protecting them. The process of making a claim for compensation is complicated and adversarial. In other words, the person or entity that is responsible for your injuries, or their insurance company, will be looking out for their own interests above yours. If you do not have legal representation, they will take advantage of your lack of knowledge and experience and prevent you from getting what you deserve. And without your own attorney, you probably will not even realize it.
The attorneys of The Rudman Law Firm, APC have over 60 years of combined experience handling only personal injury claims in Los Angeles and Southern California. We know the ins and outs of the personal injury process. We go up against insurance companies and corporate defendants every day. We passionately advocate on behalf of our clients to obtain the full compensation they deserve for their injuries and losses. We are fierce negotiators and when a fair settlement cannot be reached, we fight on behalf of our clients in court.
We Handle Everything While You Recover from Your Injuries
When you have been in an accident and have suffered an injury, the last thing you want to deal with is all the red tape. Instead of investigating your claim, collecting evidence, figuring out what you may be entitled to, dealing with insurance companies (and worrying that they are not being fair with you), and proving your losses, you need this time to recover from your injuries and to make arrangements in your personal life, to the extent that it is possible. Our personal injury lawyers not only take care of all these tasks, but they know exactly how to do so efficiently. We operate in the background while you get your life back on track. We inform and advise you about everything important, and are here to answer your every question and concern. We know this is a difficult time for you and want to take the troubling aspects of proceeding with a personal injury case off your plate.
By getting our Los Angeles or Studio City personal injury team on your side, you can feel assured that all is proceeding in a manner that creates the greatest chances for just and fair compensation. Your personal injury lawyer will:
- Report the accident to your insurance company and to the insurance company for the responsible party
- Decide whether to allow an insurance company to take your recorded statement
- In a car accident case, help facilitate the repair of your vehicle, and provision of a rental vehicle
- Explain what insurance will cover
- Answer questions regarding options for medical care
- Investigate the cause of the accident
- Gather and preserve evidence, such as witness statements, scene surveillance footage, and physical evidence
- Help you document any claim for loss of earnings due to your injuries
- Obtain your medical records and billing statements
- Present a claim to the responsible party’s insurance company
- Negotiate on your behalf
- File a lawsuit and take your case to trial if necessary
We Will Not Let the Insurance Companies Take Advantage of You
After an accident is reported to an insurance company, its representatives jump at the chance to get in contact with you before you have retained competent legal counsel. They try to take your recorded statement, offer you inadequate compensation to sign your rights away, and employ various other tactics to minimize your recovery and their exposure. They will act friendly in the process in order to persuade you that they have your best interest in mind. However, you must remember that these are insurance companies whose profits are determined by the amount of money they pay to claimants. They are in the business of withholding money. Our personal injury lawyers are experienced in combatting their tactics, and protecting your rights to full and fair compensation.
