Geoff Rill says, “If you’ve been involved in a car crash, you are at war with the insurance company for the person who caused the accident. Their sole mission is to spend as little money as possible to make you go away. Do they care if your car gets fixed properly? No. Do they care if you can’t get a rental car? No. What if you can’t work? What about your injuries and the devastating effects an accident can have on your life? They don’t care.”
He adds, “You need to contact an attorney right away if you’ve been involved in a car accident to find out what your rights are. Consultations with the Law Offices of Geoff Rill are free. Even if you don’t need to hire us, we’re happy to point you in the right direction and make sure you don’t get taken advantage of by the ‘claims department’ of the insurance company for the person who caused the accident.”
The law in California is based on the concept of comparative negligence to find out which party may be responsible for damages resulting from a car accident. This reduces the amount that a plaintiff may recover, in contrast to a pure negligence system. However, the law will not be the only consideration when establishing fault. Insurance firms will also assign a percentage of the blame for each of the parties involved in the accident. If the parties are deemed to be equally responsible, it will be a 50/50 split. However, if the other party broke a traffic law, it may result into a 70/30 ratio in favor of the plaintiff.
Working with the insurance company, regardless of whether an individual is at fault or not, can be a challenge. This is because it is for the best interests of the insurance company to minimize the amount they pay to accident victims. Those who have no lawyer to represent them are an easy target for the insurance companies. Fortunately, the lawyers at the Law Offices of Geoff Rill have extensive experience in dealing with insurance adjusters and insurance agents and will do their best to earn their client the maximum compensation possible.
