How a Costa Mesa Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

There are so many ways an experienced car accident attorney can help, even if you have been injured by an uninsured motorist. Your Costa Mesa personal injury attorney will evaluate your case to determine whether it is valid. They will proceed to the next step if they find out that you have a valid case.

In order to file a claim, your attorney will want to know the extent of your injuries. This includes both internal and external injuries. In addition to the physical injuries, the car accident attorney will also consider damages such as economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include medical expenses, the cost of transportation to your doctor's appointment, caregiver costs, medical equipment, etc. On the other hand, non-economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and so on.

Insurance Company Bad Faith

It is hard for the average person to know when they are being taken advantage of by an insurance company, but at Case Barnett Law, we know how insurance adjusters operate. If you believe your accident or mishap should be covered under your insurance policy and your insurance company does any of the following, they are acting in bad faith:

  • Fails to respond to your claim in a timely manner
  • Denies, terminates, or suspends your legitimate claim
  • Underpays your claim
  • Tries to dissuade you from making a claim
  • Misrepresents coverage during the application process
  • Misrepresents the terms and benefits of your policy in any way
  • Makes unreasonable demands for documentation

This is not an exhaustive list; there are many ways an insurance company can act in bad faith. If you are having any difficulty with your insurance company, contact Case Barnett Law for assistance.
