Do I need to see a doctor or hospital after my car accidents?
The smart answer is of course! When another vehicle made of metal weighing the same or more hits you, there is an extremely high likelihood that you have sustained injuries, even if not readily detectible or obvious. Further, the law states you need to mitigate your damages by making sure your injuries don't get worse due to your own doing or neglect. Thus, you must find out if and what types of injuries you have sustained. We can help assist you. Call us at (714) 321-9999.
When should I hire a lawyer for my car accident?
The statute of limitations for filing an injury claim in California is 2 years for injuries and 3 years for property damage. However, if you wait too long to seek medical help from your injuries as of the date of the accident, you run the risk of insurance companies thinking it's not a legitimate injury. Why suffer in pain only to find out that not only things are getting worse, but you're also no being believed. Seek both medical and legal help as soon as an accident occurs!
