When an accident occurs, and the insurance companies get involved, their only interest is to minimize their company’s financial loss, and that means paying you as little as possible. These insurance companies don’t care about you or your personal property damage. Without a Whittier personal injury lawyer on your side, you could be left with a small settlement that barely covers your bills.
When you hire The Accident Guys, you can rest assured that we have your best interest at heart. We will help remove the stress of being in a car accident by getting you everything you need after your crash. We will help recover fees for your medical bills, car repairs, lost wages, and your pain and suffering.
If you were injured due to the fault of another, you may be entitled to serious compensation. Call us now for a free consultation. We will discuss your rights and explain how we will work to maximize your recovery.
Regardless of your location, we can come to you at your convenience. We are ready to serve you.

Common Injuries from Accidents:
When you are injured while working, you are entitled to benefits, including medical expenses, lost wages due to inability to work, and even permanent impairments or disabilities. The law states that you are entitled to these insurance benefits, but that doesn’t mean your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier won’t try to get out of paying your claim. Often insurance adjusters will deny the claim or settle for a fraction of what you are entitled to.
That is why you need The Accident Guys on your side. We will guide you through the claims process to make sure you receive proper compensation. To find out more information about our workers’ compensation team and how we can help, please click here.
The city of Whittier is centrally located between Los Angeles and Orange County. This makes it a convenient place to live for any commuter. While some of the vehicle accidents happen on the nearby I-605 and 72 freeway, the majority take place on Whittier’s city streets.
One of the most auto accident-prone areas is the Whittwood Town Center. This outdoor shopping center is a high traffic location in Whittier with both retail shopping and restaurants. It’s not uncommon to see car accidents in the parking lot or on the neighboring streets of Scott Avenue, Santa Gertrudes Avenue, and Whittier Boulevard.

Who pays my medical bills after a car accident?
If the accident was not your fault, the at-fault party’s insurance would usually cover the cost of your medical bills. If the at-fault party is uninsured, then you can potentially make a claim with your own insurance company if you have uninsured motorist coverage. It is best to consult with one of our lawyers to determine how the process goes and get legal recommendations on your specific case.
Is there a deadline for filing a claim?
Yes, there is a deadline of two years to file for a personal injury case in California. The statute of limitations is different for minors, so it’s best to consult a lawyer for specifics on your case.
I need to see a doctor but don’t have medical insurance; what should I do?
Give us a call for a free consultation. We have a vast network of Whittier medical professionals that can help in situations just like yours. Getting prompt medical treatment is essential to the recovery and insurance claims process.
How much is my case worth?
Many factors go into what a case is worth. The main factors in determining a personal injury settlement amount are the bills related to your medical treatments, how long it takes you to get better, if you lost or will lose any income due to the accident, pain and suffering, and the percentage of the at-fault driver’s liability. To find out more specifically, please contact us today for a free consultation.
