The California government has placed government limitation on the number and severity of injuries a victim can receive in a motor vehicle accident if their injury has been diagnosed as just a minor one. This means that insurance companies will more often try to push for injuries being classified as minor, even if they may not be. Do not assume that the injuries you have received are minor, or fall into the government regulations of the definition of a minor injury. Do not take an insurance company’s word when they say that an injury is minor. It may be, but you should protect yourself and discuss your injuries with an expert injury lawyer.
Most insurance plans follow a certain set up which describes the types of insurance benefits you can have, depending on the severity of your injuries. Take a look at the current insurance plan for details. In one section, you’ll find the criteria to file for a claim to cover loss of income and other medical expenses. Another section pertains to the steps to take if you are filing a claim in case the defendant or negligent driver is not insured. If you think you may have a case or that you may need to fight the insurance company for compensation, contact Braff Accident Attorneys.
