Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney in Sacramento County

CBS 13 News out of Sacramento reported about a horrific three-car collision that took place this week. As we gear up for the holiday season, traffic is only going to get worse. Whether you live in Davis, El Dorado Hills, or Elk Grove, traffic is bad. Winter weather, family visitors, and office holiday parties only tend to make things worse. No one wakes up in the morning hoping to get into an accident. Unfortunately, accidents happen daily. It also seems like accidents happen when we are least prepared. Hiring a personal injury attorney in Sacramento County may be a good idea. Why would you want to hire an injury lawyer? Those are good questions. We're going to try to tackle them in this article.

If you're considering hiring a personal injury attorney in Sacramento County, give us a call. Let's discuss why hiring an injury lawyer may be beneficial.

What are the benefits of hiring an injury lawyer?

We've been in business for nearly three decades. Over that time, we've handled thousands of cases, and we've won more than $250,000,000.00 for accident victims. So, it goes without saying that we've been through this rodeo more than once. In our opinion, experience is the second most important thing when hiring a personal injury attorney. Number one is results. Our law firm has proven time and time again that we know how to win tough injury cases. Our results speak for themselves, and our past clients have become our biggest advocates. If you need to file an injury claim, you may want to talk to an attorney first.

So, what are the benefits of hiring an injury lawyer? Well, we believe there are lots of them. Look, hiring a personal injury attorney in Sacramento County is a great idea. It can also cause a lot of confusion. If you're visiting our website because you've sustained an injury, chances are you're looking for a lawyer. Now, every website and every law firm in Sacramento County claims to be a great option. We are no different. However, how do you know which law firm to trust with your case? Let's take a minute to identify some benefits of retaining an injury attorney and how to determine which law firm to hire.

Letting an attorney deal with the insurance company

If you've ever sat down and read through your insurance policy, then you know it's more than confusing. Insurance companies hire special contract attorneys to develop "ironclad" riders and clauses to protect them. In addition, insurance companies act as financial institutions. They make profits for the shareholders by investing the money we pay for our policies. This means they have a vested interest in denying your policy and keeping your money. Needless to say, filing your injury claim can create all sorts of headaches. Letting an attorney deal with the insurance company may be your best bet if you want to avoid issues with your claim.

Understanding the complexities of injury law

If you ask more attorneys, it takes a while to become a good personal injury lawyer. Negotiating with insurance companies, identifying strengths and weaknesses with a case, and even managing a claim take years of practice. Understanding the complexities of injury law requires education and, most of all, hands-on experience. Our law firm has been handling injury cases for close to 30 years. Hiring a tenured Sacramento County injury attorney like John O'Brien or Grant Zehnder may be your best bet at getting your claim paid.

Successfully settling a claim for a satisfactory amount of money

Most people reach out to a personal injury attorney in an effort to obtain a financial victory. Rightfully so, as injuries can cause all sorts of financial hardships. Successfully settling a claim for a satisfactory amount of money is one of our top priorities. While television portrays courtrooms full of witnesses and juries, the real world is much different. The majority of injury lawsuits never go to trial. That means most settle outside of court. So, is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Well, that depends. See, some injury attorneys are notorious for taking easy paychecks. That means they accept lowball offers from insurance companies because they don't want to fight or litigate a case. While our Sacramento County personal injury attorneys work to get our clients paid quickly, we also don't "roll over" and accept an offer unless it's in our client's best financial interests.

Injury Attorneys in Sacramento

As we mentioned above, there are lots of reasons why hiring a personal injury attorney in Sacramento County after an accident may be a smart move. Sacramento County has lots of suburbs, and regardless of which one you live in, accidents happen there, too. However, if we had to calculate where most of the vehicle-related accidents occur, it would be in Downtown Sacramento.

With lots of nightlife and highrise condos, many people have migrated to the newly renovated city of Sacramento. This means more traffic and more crashes. There are lots of injury attorneys in Sacramento. However, not all of them have the track record of John O'Brien and Grant Zehnder. We've won well over 250 million dollars for accident victims.
