The First and Most Important Step is to Get Medical Care

It may be that the claims adjuster is trying to get you to settle for much less than you are owed. After we have assessed the facts, we can determine if you have a valid claim.
If we believe you do, and we take your case, then we will do so on a contingency basis. This assures that you do not pay a cent for your legal fees until we win your case. In the event that we do not win your case, you will not owe us anything for said legal fees.
We Will Collect and Analyze Evidence
The first step of representing you involved us gathering and analyzing evidence. We will look at witnesses testimonies, debris from the crash scene, and police reports. We will determine who is at fault and gather the necessary evidence to prove your case. We will also assess damages for your case, including pain and suffering, current and future medical costs, lost wages, lost future earning capacity, and more.
Once we have determined a reasonable settlement, we will negotiate with the insurance adjuster to attempt a fair settlement. If they refuse, then we will take your case to court. Call Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas now at 909-982-0707 to get started.
