BERG WINS 60X INSURANCE COMPANY’S OFFER IN AUTO ACCIDENT CASE
Berg Injury Lawyers recently obtained a recovery worth SIXTY TIMES the insurance company’s original settlement offer in an auto accident case.
Our client suffered a significant neck injury in a crash caused by another driver who made an illegal U-turn in front of him. He required two cervical fusions because the hardware used in the first procedure failed. Our client was offered a settlement by the insurance company prior to hiring Berg Injury Lawyers which he did not accept. The representation by Berg Injury Lawyers helped him settle for 60x what he was offered prior to hiring our law firm.
DO YOU HAVE A CLAIM?
After a car accident, you may be confused about whether you have a claim for compensation. To be eligible to collect damages, your accident must meet two criteria:
- The accident was at least partially caused by another party’s negligence.
- The accident caused you or a family member to suffer serious physical injuries.
Our California car accident attorneys can answer any questions you have about what constitutes negligence and what it means for an injury to be “severe.” If your attorney determines that your accident meets both of these criteria, we will immediately begin building your claim.
If your claim involves damage to your vehicle in addition to your injuries, we will help you work on resolving your vehicle-related claim AT NO COST.
WHAT TO DO WHEN THE INSURANCE COMPANY CALLS YOU
Once the insurance companies are notified of your accident, representatives from either your insurer or the at-fault party’s insurer may contact you. Though you want to notify your insurance company of the crash as soon as possible, you DO NOT want to speak to a representative of the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Innocent comments can be manipulated to make it look like the accident was your fault or that your injuries aren’t severe. They may also try to pressure you into quickly signing a settlement worth far less than you actually need.
It’s common for insurance adjusters to mislead victims about the money they may be eligible to receive, and that’s why having a lawyer on your side can help you understand exactly how much your claim is worth.
An experienced California auto accident attorney will take into account your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, so you get a clear picture of the compensation you need to cover the true costs of your accident.
We know insurance companies’ tactics, so when they call, hang up and contact us instead. We’ll help you determine whether a settlement offer is fair, and we’ll talk to the insurance company for you.

IS IT WORTH HIRING A LAWYER FOR A CAR ACCIDENT?
If you’re debating whether to hire an attorney after a car accident, you should at least speak to one and explore your options. With the right lawyer handling your auto accident case, you could get far more compensation than you would by accepting the first offer an insurance company makes.
WHEN SHOULD YOU SUE AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?
You should take legal action after a car accident if an insurance company is denying the compensation you deserve. Filing a lawsuit is often a last resort for an injured person, but it’s a powerful way to demand the payment you need to cover medical bills, lost income, and any other damages you face.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE SETTLEMENT FOR A CAR ACCIDENT IN CALIFORNIA?
Settlements for car accident injuries can range from thousands to millions of dollars. When we take on your claim, we’ll consider many factors to determine how much you should be paid. We’ll not only factor in your medical bills, property damage, lost income, and other costs, but we’ll also look at how much your costs will be in the years to come.
When you hire an experienced attorney, they’ll review the many expenses and damages you’re facing to determine a fair amount of compensation for you and your loved ones. Then, they’ll demand payment from the insurance company.
WILL YOU NEED TO GO TO COURT FOR A CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM IN CALIFORNIA?
Most injury claims are settled before reaching the litigation stage, but experienced car accident attorneys know it’s always best to prepare to go to trial.
At Berg Injury Lawyers, we’ve built a reputation as tough negotiators. Insurance companies know that we are prepared to take cases as far as they need to go to get our clients the payment they deserve.
