I was in a car accident and the insurance company offered a low settlement. What do I do?

Insurance companies have a strategy. The first step in a claim is to make a low offer and hope that the injured person is so desperate that they will accept it. At The Swanson Law Group, we are strategic, unstoppable, and fearsome to the insurance industry. If you get a low settlement offer, you need to speak with us in a private consultation. The real value of your case is likely much, much more — and in our opinion, you deserve it all.

What should I do if I was injured in an accident?

The first and most important action is to ensure you get medical care. There is nothing more important than your health. If you don’t have health insurance, you can access our network of excellent doctors and specialists when your injury case is represented by The Swanson Law Group — without the need to pay up-front. Don’t take chances with your health and your ability to work, earn a living, and enjoy life. If the at-fault driver’s insurance company calls you and you make a statement, they may use what you say to reduce the value of your claim. Let us do the heavy lifting while you focus on recovering your health.

How much does a personal injury lawyer charge?

When we represent an injured person, we don’t charge them anything until we win — whether negotiating a settlement or in court. The State Bar of California states: “Contingency fees mean you will pay the lawyer a certain percentage of the money you receive if you win the case or settle the matter out of court. If you lose your case, the lawyer does not receive any payments from you.”

How much is my case worth?

Every case has unique factors. To value a case requires a full investigation into what happened and how your life has been affected by your injuries. The value of a personal injury case includes several types of damages that are valued individually. These include:

  • Economic damages: The costs associated with medical care and treatment, hospital bills, medications, surgeries, rehabilitation treatments, lost income, reduced earning capacity, and other hard costs.
  • Non-economic damages: These damages reflect the the personal and emotional impact of the injuries such as pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, emotional anguish, loss of personal relationships, and more.
