Auto Accident Litigation
There are common misconceptions about going to court in Orange County for an auto accident. Many people who are involved in a car accident in Orange County do not want to get involved with a lawsuit, which is completely understandable. Lawsuits can be a stressful and time consuming experience. But before you make any decisions, you should seek counsel. The auto accident attorneys of Mosher & Skorina want you to be fully informed about your rights and completely understand what compensation you are entitled to for any injuries you have received as a result of your accident.
There are some common misconceptions of auto accident lawsuits that the attorneys of Mosher and Skorina would like to clear up for you. One common misconception is that victims of auto accidents do not need attorneys. People may feel like they can deal with the insurance companies and possibly litigate the claim themselves. The problem with that thought is that until an attorney is retained, insurance companies know that the injured party is not properly prepared to go to court. They will therefore make a completely unfair offer. Our Orange County car accident attorneys are very experienced in dealing with insurance companies and help their clients get the compensation that they deserve.
Another common misconception is that every auto accident case goes to trial. Here in Orange County, nothing can be further than the truth. In fact 99% of the cases brought before the court system are settled before litigation begins.
A serious misconception that an injured party of an auto accident may have is that they can wait however long they want to file a claim. Unfortunately, this is also untrue. In Orange County, automobile and motorcycle claims must be filed within two years of the accident.
Another misconception about auto accident litigation, is that people believe that these cases take forever and will be dragged out in courts for years. This idea is also untrue. If the case is in litigation, an injured party can expect a resolution typically within a year. Only in some complex cases will litigation take longer.
