Car Accident Injury Attorney Burbank CA
Every driver on the road is responsible for exerting reasonable care. That means maintaining a valid license and auto insurance, respecting the rules of the road, and avoiding distracting driving, among other things. Any driver that does not fulfill their responsibility while operating a vehicle may be considered negligent and can be prosecuted under the law if their behavior results in an accident. Some examples of negligent driving include ignoring red lights, failing to signal a turn, driving over the speed limit, driving under the influence, or driving while texting or otherwise interacting with a mobile device. The first step in any auto-related personal injury case will be proving that negligence is directly responsible for the accident and by extension, the injury.
Taking on Insurance Companies
Paying your insurance premiums on time and in full does not mean that you are guaranteed a fair settlement, especially when you are in the position of relying on someone else’s auto insurance for compensation. In the event of an auto accident, both driver’s insurance parties will be involved. Often times, the insurance companies will fight with each other over who is responsible for paying a settlement. This argumentative nature between insurances can delay financial compensation for the injured party and force them to rely on their own resources to seek medical treatment or to account for time away from work. The car accident injury attorneys at AZ Legal will not let that happen. We have tried hundreds of automobile accident cases, and we will not quit until you have received the compensation you are entitled to.
