What should I do if I get in a car accident in Downey?
First and foremost, after a car accident, it's important to stay safe. Request immediate medical attention if necessary and notify law enforcement about the crash. The police can help you write an official report and exchange driver information. If possible, collect photo evidence of the point of contact, road conditions, and traffic signs, as well as witness statements and other relevant documents.
What is the average settlement for a car accident in Downey?
It's not easy to determine the average settlement amount for a car accident in Downey. That's because settlement information is often kept private. Even when it's public, amounts tend to vary widely according to the unique nature of each accident.
We know it can be tough to put a price on a horrible moment. Our network of experienced car accident attorneys will help you value your case based on your medical expenses, the severity of injuries, the presence of traffic violations, and more.
Is hiring a car accident lawyer in Downey necessary?
It's completely up to you whether you choose to hire a car accident lawyer in Downey. But it's worth noting that accidents can result in expenses, injuries, and paperwork that can be tough to manage alone. If that's the case for you, our network of car accident lawyers can help you work through the claims process and secure as much support as possible.
How much does a Downey car accident attorney cost through Mighty Law's referral network?
Because our network of personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis, you'll only pay if you receive compensation. For cases that settle prior to a lawsuit being filed, lawyers in our network generally charge a “pre-suit” fee of 33% of the final settlement amount. Cases involving lawsuits generally carry a “post-suit” fee of 40%.
We want to help you make strides toward a healthier future, free of financial stress—so if you are referred by us in most cases you'll receive 10% back at the conclusion of your case.
What does the process of working with a car accident lawyer from Mighty Law's network look like?
Fill out our online form or give us a call to begin the process. We—or one of the lawyers in our network—will be in touch to hear about your case. If your case moves forward, your legal team will start collecting documents and investigating.
Once the medical bills are in, your lawyers will assemble your claim and submit it to the insurance company. Then, they'll negotiate until you're satisfied with the offer. Most cases settle, but if an agreement is not reached, your lawyer may file a lawsuit on your behalf.
How long will it take to investigate a car accident claim in Downey?
The average time it takes for personal injury cases to settle in Downey is 1.5 years, but this can vary based on several factors—including the insurance companies involved, the details of your car accident, and the possibility of a lawsuit.
Some cases settle within a year, while others take multiple years to resolve. No matter what, your team of lawyers will start right away to get your case moving in the right direction.
What happens once my Downey car accident case is settled?
Once your case is settled, any outstanding fees—for your lawyers, your medical care, loans, and beyond—will be deducted from the gross (or total) amount. You'll then receive everything else! Plus, if you work with a lawyer from the Mighty Law network, we'll give you 10% back on your total fees (because we want to make things a bit easier for you). After that, your future is in your hands—the way it should be.
