Why Hire a Paine Edmonds Personal Injury Lawyer?

Because we’re on your side

Insurance companies and their adjusters are on the side of the driver who injured you. That means their job is to get you to settle for as little as possible so they cannot be relied upon to tell you what you truly deserve. In many cases, they will argue your injuries are not as severe as you say, are not caused by the car accident, or are pre-existing conditions. Our personal injury lawyers are on your side.

Because the other driver may try to blame you for the car accident

While in some cases the other motorist may admit fault for the collision, in many cases there will be a dispute. The degree to which you are at fault will reduce the amount of compensation you are entitled to so the insurer for the other motorist will almost always argue that you should share fault for the accident. If this cannot be resolved satisfactorily between you and the other motorist's insurance company, a Court ultimately has the final say on who is at fault. The personal injury lawyers at Paine Edmonds are well versed on the law on collisions between cars and can properly advise you on whether you really are at risk of being found at fault in part or at all.
