Your Right to Compensation After an Auto Accident

After an accident, you are entitled to compensation for all losses caused by the accident.

You may be eligible to recover compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Impaired future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Incidentals expenses that you would not have incurred but for the accident (home health aide, driver, housekeeper, childcare, etc.)
  • Property damage
  • Diminution in value of your vehicle
  • Rental car or loss of use of your vehicle

Choosing the Best Car Accident Attorney for Your Case

If you were in an auto accident and are searching for a law firm to represent you, you will have no shortage of choices. However, we suggest that you do your homework first because your choice could affect the value of your claim.

Insurance companies take into consideration a law firm’s reputation when making a settlement offer. They know the top firms, and they know which firms will not bow down to a lowball settlement offer.

So how do you do your homework?

Spend time on the attorney’s website. Does it answer your questions? Do they seem the right fit for you and your case? Check out the firm’s online reviews (Yelp, Avvo) and client testimonials.

When you call the firm, do you actually speak to the attorney or only support staff? Does an answering service take your call, then relay it to a lawyer who is rarely at the office? Does the attorney take time in answering all of your questions and seem genuinely concerned about helping you? Or does the firm representative rush through the call and seem more interested in whether you are going to make money for the firm?

These are all important factors to consider when choosing a car accident lawyer in Long Beach. Hear from one of our former clients, a car accident victim, about her experience with McGee, Lerer & Associates.

Importance of Immediate Medical Treatment After a Crash

Over the years, Long Beach car accident attorneys Daniel McGee and Catherine Lerer have represented thousands of auto accident victims who have suffered serious injuries. We know that the sooner you get medical treatment after an accident, the better for your recovery, and the better for your legal case.

Any delay in seeking treatment will be used against you by the insurance company who will argue that you were not seriously injured, or that you would have been transported from the scene by ambulance to the hospital, or that you would have, at least, seen a doctor within a day or two of the accident.

Any inconsistency in getting medical treatment (lengthy gaps between visits or no-shows for visits) will also be used against you by the insurance company.

It's important to seek treatment for any type of injury, including:
  • Head and face injuries - bruises, lacerations, fractures and broken bones, TMJ, and other dental injuries
  • Foot, knee, and leg injuries - laceration, fracture, sprain, dislocation, hip injury
  • Knee injuries – ACL tear, PCL tear, meniscus tear, MCL tear
  • Brain injuries – loss of consciousness, concussion, closed head injury, post-concussion syndrome, and traumatic brain injury
  • Neck injuries - strain, whiplash, fractures, cervical radiculopathy and disc injury
  • Shoulder, arm, and wrist injuries - strain, sprain, fracture, dislocation, rotator cuff tear, carpal tunnel syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome
  • Back injuries - sprain, strain, fracture, disc injury, spinal cord injury, and annual tear
  • Psychological injuries – depression, fear of driving, nightmares, flashbacks, PTSD

We Can Help You Get Medical Treatment

If you hire our firm, one of the things we can facilitate is getting you in to see a doctor right away. If you do not have health insurance or do not have the money to pay for medical treatment, the lawyers at McGee, Lerer & Associates can refer you to a medical provider near you who will treat you on a lien basis.

A "lien" means the doctor agrees to wait to be paid until your case is resolved. Whether you need an orthopedic or neurological consultation, chiropractic care, physical therapy, psychotherapy, or surgery, we can arrange for top quality treatment on a lien.

Over the years, we have built relationships with some of the best medical providers in Long Beach, Lakewood, Bellflower, and surrounding communities. We can often get you in to see a medical provider within a day or two of hiring our firm. If you are already receiving treatment from a medical provider and are happy with that treatment - great. There is no need to change doctors.

Don't Wait – Call Us 24/7 for a Free Consultation

If you have been injured in a car accident or an uninsured motorist accident, you should consult the best Long Beach car accident lawyer as soon as possible to protect your right to full compensation.

Do not talk to the other driver's insurance company. They will try to get to you before you call an attorney. They want your recorded statement and a signed medical authorization. Do not provide either – both could hurt the value of your claim. Both are for the sole benefit of the insurance adjuster.

Providing a signed medical authorization and a recorded statement in no way benefits you.
