Why Retaining the Services of a Long Beach Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You?
Were you or a family member harmed at the hands of another in the LBC? First of all, you must consult with an attorney who knows the local scene, such as ELFPI. We know the courts and accident locations.
In fact, we may have had a similar case against the same insurer already. Plus we know many of the adjusters assigned to your claims and all their dirty tricks. Are we getting this so far? Good!
Hesitant to Hire a Lawyer?
Are you procrastinating on hiring a lawyer?
Maybe you think you can handle it yourself?
Perhaps you are stubborn and don't want to pay a lawyer?
Or maybe you are trying to play nice with the shifty insurer?
But the sad truth is, even the best paralegals, law clerks, and even general practice type lawyers will have a hard time with self-representation in a PI claim. (Learn the difference here.)
Let's look at some Reasons why a trained PI lawyer can get you more, even if you're a lawyer in another field of law:
Objectivity: A lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client. So even a well-versed injury lawyer should refrain from taking on their own case. Often we tend to make our insurance claim into our crusade. So it can become a very emotional experience that keeps you from seeing the forest through the trees.
PI Lawyers Are More Experienced than other lawyers in PI law: Yes, you heard right. Imagine the law being Freedom Towers in NY. Each office from the bottom floor to the top houses an area of law. So for example, floor one, office one houses divorce law and so on. Well PI law is so specialized that it would take up an entire floor of that building, from slip and falls, cruise ship accidents and so on. Plus, each case has its own unique nuances like needing to abide by a particular provision or statute, etc. So a divorce lawyer could blow his or her own case for assuming the timelines are always the same in each case.
Time: You likely have a job, or are recovering. You don't have the time or the experience to deal with an insurance adjuster trying to short sell your case to you. ELFPI dedicates the time required to win your case.
But beyond that, who do you call? Well, it helps to have a local attorney like ELFPI.
The first step is just talking confidentially. There is no cost for your call to us.
Protecting your legal rights is an important action to take. But as discussed, it remains essential to search for and hire the right legal professionals in the LBC.
Why Is Long Beach So Different Than Other Cities When It Comes To Injuries?
We understand that Long Beach is a great city to live in and work. It is equally ideal for visitors and vacationers. Also, it offers many exciting attractions and activities like the Aquarium and even Queen Mary.
So right away, you can see that Long Beach is full of visitors who don't know their way around. And this applies to lots of people on foot, in rental cars, and engaged in tourism.
In other words, Long Beach is an accident waiting to happen for a weary traveler.
Long Beach has claimed many victims of life-changing accidents.
There are many types of accidents unique to Long Beach.
Examples of common Long Beach Accidents include:
Slips and falls on the Queen Mary or the docks
Big Rig Truck Accidents at the Port of Long Beach
Toxic gas fumes from all the transportation and oil wells
Slip and Fall on the Scorpion Submarine or other tourist attraction
Maybe a drowning off of a whale watching boat or Catalina boat ride took place?
Of course, you could just be hurt in a motoring regular fender bender. Whatever the case, most of these incidents cause severe personal harm for life. So people will get physically injured, yes.
But there are also emotional and financial damages that go way deeper. So these devastated victims and their families will need help. So it’s probably a good idea to consult with legal professionals at ELFPI at a bare minimum.
But regardless of the location where you became hurt, it is essential that you hire an attorney you can trust.
Only then will you rest better knowing someone is looking out for your best interests. An attorney must be one who has excellent results. That's us.
How to Steer Clear of Pernicious Insurance Company Strategies?
So as much as we don’t want to believe it, a PI claim boils down to dollars and cents.
Many accident victims are unable to work.
You may also face other hurdles due to your newfound physical limitations.
Emotional trauma issues may also rear their head, causing problems for you, the victim.
And this is all on top of dealing with the pernicious insurance company representatives. All of this creates turmoil for you. Typically money is the best substitute to help you afford all of this downtime.
So all in all, not having a lawyer who can get you paid adds to the emotional and stressful situation.
Plus, it is not unusual for insurance businesses to play games and wait out the clock right. Isn't that why you landed on this page?
More than anything, insurers look for ways to waste time, reduce a claim, or deny it altogether. Regardless of whether the victim deserves to get paid this fact still holds true.
This unwholesome strategy will not work if excellent legal representation is with you.
Also, a competent and skilled accident attorney makes you appear more credible.
Your legal expert will ensure that the insurance company does not steamroll your case.
So the adjuster won’t be able to low ball you.
Low balling is when the adjuster offers a low settlement.
Probably this is less than you deserve.
Why Mustn't You Become a Victim Twice?
An excellent attorney will not let you be a victim twice. Adjusters walk all over unrepresented victims like you.
Retaining the services of a reputable law firm is key.
But your representative must have the:
Be able to hold the large, wealthy insurance company accountable.

How Do You Recover Damages for Long Beach Negligence Claims?
Ehline Law Firm assists in the recovery of the compensation. So what is compensation you ask? Simple under California law, this is your entitlement to money after an accident.
Compensation is designed to cover you for your mental, physical losses, and property damages.
So now you can recover damages for medical expenses, and loss of income.
Compensation also means money due to your reduced future earnings.
Also, property damage and other intangibles get factored into the math.
But in some cases, the responsible party acted incredibly reckless or careless.
A financial award like this is separate from the other compensation.
Courts use this form of damages as a punishment for the negligent party’s actions.
Who Covers the Up Front Costs of Investigations?
We will advance all your reasonable upfront costs of investigating the claim. Investigating a personal injury case itself will typically be very expensive. Plus, experts may need to be hired on a case by case basis.
Experts will need to be housed, flown, and driven from court to hotel in many cases.
Depositions, court reporters, private mediators, medical records are not cheap.
This help will cost the plaintiff a truckload of money.
A solo practitioner is usually not the best fit for a complicated case.
A case like that is multifaceted and expensive. It will require a huge bankroll and large staff of specialists to deal with all the red tape and experts. Ehline has the financial resources to ensure every claim gets investigated.
