When Should You Contact a Qualified Lawyer?

When you or your loved ones have been injured in an accident or through negligence or wrongdoing, it is a good time to seek a qualified Pasadena lawyer.

With a lawyer by your side, you’ll receive protection against aggressive insurance companies, large corporations, and individuals that want to avoid paying fair compensation.

By seeking a free consultation with GBG Law, you can also determine the merits of your claim. During the consultation, the lawyer can explain your legal rights, help you determine if you have a case, and the benefits of working with them if you do.

Here are some situations where it is best to get a personal injury attorney.

The liability for the accident is disputed.

When it comes to proving the responsible party in an accident, your lawyer can help investigate and gather and organize evidence that can be used to support your claim.

For example, a third party could claim that you were speeding at the time of an accident, or maybe didn’t come to a full stop at the stop sign. Therefore, you were partially at fault for your injury, this would give the cause to argue for a lesser amount of settlement, or none at all. A Pasadena car accident lawyer can help navigate these troubled waters.

When multiple parties are involved.

These types of claims are more complicated, prolonged, and challenging. They result from things like multi-vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, and product liability claims. A good lawyer at your side can deal with the additional issues that may arise in these claims.

Sustained catastrophic injury or permanent disability.

For claims that deal with catastrophic injury or permanent disability, it is imperative that there your injury attorney helps recover from all available resources in order to protect the need for ongoing and future medical care.  A Pasadena injury attorney will engage experts that will help substantiate these ongoing medical costs and their necessity.  

Insurance companies acting in bad faith.

Insurance companies are for-profit companies that want to keep as much money as possible in their pockets and out of yours. They engage in tactics like delaying claims and denying claims. 

Other ways that they can act in bad faith can be: failing to investigate the claim, requiring burdensome and unnecessary paperwork, refusing to pay a valid claim, raising false allegations of your negligence, misrepresenting the terms of the insurance policy, and intentionally misleading you about your legal rights.

Working with a lawyer can greatly reduce the chances of the insurance company taking advantage of you and your rights.

Claims involving a Government entity

Dealing with a government entity comes with a more complicated claim. There are certain things that they are exempt from liability for, as well as the deadlines and procedures in filing a case differ. Having a Pasadena lawyer that is well versed in this can help avoid these pitfalls.
