After a car accident it can get emotionally, physically, and financially stressful. During this recovery period, you will need someone on your side fighting for a settlement that you deserve. The insurance companies only have their best interest and will look to lowball their offers.

Lancaster, CA Dangerous Intersections
Accidents can happen anywhere; at home, in a place of business, and many other places. However, one place where getting hurt can often lead to long, drawn-out legal battles is on the job. When you are involved in a worker’s compensation case, one of the biggest weapons the insurance company has is your sense of urgency. If you need help with medical treatment and payments, rent or mortgage, food, vehicle repairs, or any other bills or expenses, chances are you can’t wait for an extended period.
It makes sense to partner up with a team of skilled and experienced workers’ compensation lawyers in Lancaster like The Accident Guys. You can read more on our workers’ comp page located here.
What Happens if My Car Is Damaged?
Severe body damage can cost several thousand dollars to fix. That’s not even mentioning mechanical repairs, electrical repairs, frame damage, and any other systems or parts that might need attention. Not only can this lead to being unable to drive to work, but it can also interfere with essential everyday tasks such as grocery shopping, getting prescriptions, banking, and many others.
Who Is Responsible for Auto Repairs and Rentals?
The driver of the vehicle responsible for the accident (i.e., their insurance provider) is usually financially accountable, at least to a large extent, for having your car repaired.
However, the responsibility of rental cars during the repair period isn’t always as clear. In some cases, victims have to wait until after the final settlement to be reimbursed for rental fees. Early on, hiring a good accident lawyer may help avoid this issue.
What About Lost Wages and Missed Time at Work?
This will significantly depend on your attorney’s competency and whether you can show that the injuries resulting from the accident are severe enough to miss work. Again, this goes back to the importance of keeping the proper documentation for everything involved with the entire situation. Your lawyer will be able to explain the possible outcomes best.
How Long Can I Wait to File a Claim?
California has a statute of limitation of two years for vehicle accidents, but it’s not always cut and dry. Some circumstances may change the statute of limitations, and it is best to consult an attorney about your case.
Injuries are no fun, but dealing with Eliot is. Eliot is a great lawyer, and a great person! Highly recommend reaching out to him.
