7. Is my call to 1-800-THE-LAW2 confidential?

Yes. Please remember, while your call to 1-800-THE-LAW2 is confidential, some employers record calls made on the company phone, so consider using a mobile phone for your call. And make the call on your break or lunch hour, not on the company’s time. Never call, text, or email us while you’re driving a motor vehicle. If you must call from your workplace, call from a location where others can’t overhear your conversation.

9. Why is it important to call an attorney right away after being hurt in an accident?

The sooner you call 1-800-THE-LAW2 (before things aren’t going well with your insurance company or employer), the better we can help you. There are strict deadlines for taking legal action. If you miss any one of them, you lose the opportunity to take legal action. Period.

11. Why do I need a personal injury lawyer?

Filing a personal injury claim and dealing with insurance companies can be a difficult, time-consuming process. Insurance companies and their adjusters can be intimidating and often offer you less than you deserve for your injuries. A personal injury lawyer is ready to:

  • protect your legal rights
  • works for you
  • maximize the monetary compensation you receive

If you’re injured in an accident, ask a lawyer about filing a personal injury claim. Experienced personal injury attorneys are available from 1-800-THE-LAW2. And with the largest attorney network in California, there’s probably an attorney member near where you work or live ready to help you. It’s never too early to ask a lawyer.

12. Will my personal injury attorney deal with the insurance companies for me?

Yes. Personal injury lawyers handle all legal forms and can deal with the insurance companies and adjusters involved in your claim. An attorney’s involvement can help you save time, money and frustration. Getting all your benefits can sometimes be difficult and it’s advised you do not speak to the insurance companies without a lawyer to protect your rights. Please remember, insurance companies tape record phone calls with their customers. Anything you say could be used to determine your claim. Ask a lawyer about what to do with any information requests from the insurance companies involved in your claim.

13. When should I file my claim?

You have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury claim after an accident. The sooner you file a personal injury claim the better. The longer you wait, the less seriously the insurance companies may take your accident— waiting to file your claim could result in:

  • the insurance companies offering you less monetary compensation than if you had taken legal action immediately after your accident
  • losing out on benefits
  • losing your right to file a claim
  • having to come out-of-pocket for accident-related medical bills
  • losing out on disability payments and compensation for lost wages

Ask a lawyer for help with the claims process. They can help file a claim properly and submit it on time. Waiting to file a claim could jeopardize your rights, your ability to receive certain benefits and potentially cause you to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars in accident-related medical bills, disability payments and lost wages. Why risk losing out on getting all you deserve? Ask a lawyer about filing a claim today.

14. What benefits do I qualify for?

An attorney member of 1-800-THE-LAW2 can help determine which benefits you may qualify for based on the situation surrounding your injury and the seriousness of your injuries. Some of the benefits you could qualify for include monetary compensation for emotional and physical pain and suffering, and financial losses, such as lost wages. Don’t forget to ask a lawyer about disability benefits whether they be permanent or temporary. Your attorney could also help get your accident-related medical bills and your auto repair bills paid.
