Of all of the country’s areas, particularly those with large populations, southern California is one of the worst (and perhaps the worst) ones to drive in. It’s not the best place to bicycle or walk around in, either. These stats show up as much in Moreno Valley as they do everywhere else. What this all boils down to is that there are a lot of accidents.
With car accidents comes questionable insurance providers trying to prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve. If you’re unable to get back to work and are stacking medical bills, your situation is only going to continue to get worse.
That’s why you need the legal experts here at The Accident Guys. We work with accident victims exclusively to make sure they get what is rightfully owed to them. Our 98% success rate and numerous 5-Star reviews on Google, Facebook, and Yelp prove you are hiring a top-rated Moreno Valley personal injury lawyer.

Like so many other parts of southern California, Moreno Valley has several dangerous roads, highways, and freeways. Several accidents occur on these roads each year and are known accident-prone intersections and roadways.
However, some roadways which deserve extra attention are the 60 Freeway, the Ramona Expressway, and the I-215. With so many hazardous interchanges and other highway and freeway intersects, it is best to always be alert whenever driving through any part of these areas.
Moreno Valley, CA Dangerous Intersections
Auto accidents aren’t the only way that a person can be seriously injured or even killed. Workplace accidents are on the rise as well, and you may need a workers’ compensation lawyer in Moreno Valley. As employees become more and more distracted, research shows that the job’s injuries are becoming more common. This will inevitably lead to more workers’ compensation claims being heard in the courts, making the process tedious and possibly lengthy.
When you are dealing with medical care, lost wages from time missed at work, and all of the other mounting bills, you really can’t wait forever. And the insurance companies prey on this. They know that while they may stall and drag things through the legal process, you can’t. That’s why so many victims end up settling for far less than the law would allow them, simply because they are out of time. That’s where The Accident Guys can help. You can read more on our workers’ compensation here.
I’ve Been Injured in a Car Accident. How Soon Should I Call a Lawyer?
As soon as possible, the fact is that the longer you wait to speak with a legal representative about your case, the weaker it will most likely become. As time passes, critical aspects of your case might fade or disappear. Witness memories become less clear, and injuries begin to heal. All of these and many other aspects of the case need to be discussed and documented quickly.
How Long Should I Wait to Receive Medical Attention?
This is something that should be done immediately. While you can wait until the next day to get in touch with an attorney, medical care is something that shouldn’t be put off for any amount of time. Even what feels like a minor accident can lead to serious health issues in some circumstances. At the very least, you should be checked out by the EMTs before leaving the scene. And if you experience any unusual symptoms, you should see a doctor without delay.
Do I Need a Car Accident Lawyer?
Too often, accident victims try to deal with the insurance companies by themselves, only to discover too late that they did or said something that hurt their case. The insurance providers have lawyers on their side fighting for them. If the insurance company is offering you a settlement, requests that you submit a recorded statement, or is just basically giving you a run-around, you most likely will need an attorney.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Personal injury lawyers generally have a good idea of what your case may be worth. At the very least, they should be able to offer a reasonable range. They should also explain how various legal factors, preexisting medical issues, and many other things could impact a settlement verdict or offer. Do your due diligence and use your best judgment when assessing a potential attorney’s claims. Be cautious of accident lawyers who make high estimates that seem too good to be true.
I Might Have Partially Been at Fault for the Accident. Do I Not Have a Case Now?
You may have a case, and it is best to speak with one of our Moreno Valley personal injury attorneys. Some places distribute responsibility on a split system. For example, if the other driver were more than 50% responsible for the accident, they would also be responsible for a corresponding amount of the expense. In other locations, having any blame in the accident may nullify any claims.
I had been in a scary, traumatic, and life changing car accident. I was not at fault one bit, and I’m lucky to be alive. The day after my accident I needed to find an attorney. It was my first time having to seek legal representation, so I was very cautious about my choices and decision. I’m beyond thankful to have found Dayan and Houman, The Accident Guys law firm! They have been so kind, thorough, caring, detailed, informative, and overall a pleasure to work with. They lessened the stress and worries I had, and made me feel secure. They even sent my family and I flowers when my eldest brother passed last December. I couldn’t be happier with my settlement and time invested in The Accident Guys. Thank you so very much!!
