If you have suffered through the trauma of a car accident, your friends and family may be pressuring you to hire a Car Accident Attorney Corona. How do you know when you actually have a case that can, and should, be taken to court and when you should accept that it was an accident that no one caused and should be left alone? Here are three clues that you could, and possibly should, take your car accident case to court.

If the insurance policy held by the other driver does not cover all your expenses, or compensate you for loss of wages.

Often, insurance policies will cover only a certain limit of the expenses related to a car accident and anything over that amount is your responsibility. In the worst cases, you may be out of work for days or weeks and have no way to pay any of your bills or expenses during that time. This is a reasonable time to take legal action against the driver who caused your injury and wreck.

There is a clear and provable cause of the accident, and it’s not you.

Many times, your Car Accident Lawyer Corona will be able to advise you about whether or not the original police report from the accident helps to prove that an accident, and therefore the costs related to it, was your fault, someone else’s fault, or if you should share blame. In most cases, you will not be able to prove that it was entirely someone else’s fault that caused your auto related injury and will have a much harder time winning a case for compensation in court. Trust your attorney on this, it is their job to know what can be taken to court and what cannot.

The other driver (or drivers) involved in your accident were severely under insured and you are being left to pay the difference.

Cars are insured for the purpose of protecting the drivers in the event of a crash or accident where costs can sky-rocket quite quickly into the thousands of dollars. If the other driver was not insured, or was under-insured, a good Car Accident Lawyer Corona may be able to get you a settlement to help cover the difference.
