Recovering Damages from a Vehicle Accident
Being unable to work following an accident and facing mounting medical bills is a problem many vehicle accident victims face each day in California. The inability to earn income, pay living expenses, pay for necessary medical treatments, and provide for their family is an overwhelming burden that many vehicle accident victims cope with as they struggle to recover from their physical injuries and emotional pain. As the insurance company continues to fight the vehicle accident victim’s claim, the suffering is prolonged. If this is you, you can do something to stop the insurance company from taking advantage of you.
The Levinson Law Group levels the playing field against big insurance companies by using our extensive experience and resources to fight for the rights of vehicle accident victims. Our attorneys work diligently to hold negligent drivers responsible for their actions to get you the compensation you deserve. We cut through the insurance red tape and refuse to allow insurance companies to use tactics that delay and diminish insurance settlements. If necessary, we are fully prepared to file a vehicle accident lawsuit to get you a just and full settlement.
What Damages Can You Receive Before A Vehicle Accident Lawsuit?
The time between your vehicle accident and the settlement of the claim is the most difficult because your expenses continue and, in many cases, your expenses have increased due to your injuries. Unfortunately, you will not receive any compensation for your damages until the claim has been fully settled. If a lawsuit must be filed, you will not receive any compensation until after the trial is complete and the jury rules in your favor. We understand this can be devastating; therefore, we try to help clients find ways to receive the assistance they need until their case settles.
For example, if you have private health insurance and disability insurance, you may be entitled to receive compensation from your private policies while your claim is being litigated. If you do not have private disability insurance, you may qualify to receive benefits through the California State Disability Insurance (SDI) program. Eligible workers receive short-term disability benefits for a loss of income due to a non-industrial injury.
