Questions to Ask a Lawyer After a Car Accident

You’ve been hurt in a vehicle crash in California—now what? Most people believe that all they can do is file an insurance claim. Your insurance coverage may pay for repairs to your vehicle, and it may provide some compensation for your medical expenses, but who’s going to pay for your other losses?

What about the wages you’ve missed out on since you haven’t been able to work because of your injury? What about the emotional turmoil your accident has caused you or the physical pain of your injuries? What if your injury is permanent?

You can recover full compensation for your suffering by filing a personal injury claim. But first, you’re probably going to have some questions to ask a lawyer after your car accident.

Questions You Should Have Ready

You’ve settled on filing a personal injury claim to recover your losses, but how can you get all your questions answered when speaking to a lawyer. The best way is to prepare a list of the questions you want answered.
