What Can a Spanish Speaking Car Accident Lawyer in San Antonio Do for Each Client?
Rebuilding one’s life after a car accident can be confusing and difficult. The aftermath usually involves personal injuries, property loss, and time away from work. People who are dealing with a car accident often need answers to key questions, such as:
- Can I get compensation for my medical expenses?
- What other losses are eligible for compensation?
- When should I report the incident to my insurance company?
- Is it better to accept a settlement or file a lawsuit?
- Am I required to speak with the other side’s lawyers directly?
- Can my lawyer negotiate with the insurance company for a higher payout?
- How will my lawyer build my case if I need to go to court?
A personal injury lawyer is an important resource for information, guidance, case building, and litigation. While the other driver and the insurance company are incentivized to work against the claimant, you can expect your lawyer to advocate for your best interests exclusively. Here are some of the most important services our bilingual attorneys offer:
A Free Consultation
The case assessment, also called the consultation, is an opportunity for the client and the lawyer to have an initial conversation about the accident. For Spanish-speaking people, having the option of sharing the details of the incident in their native language can greatly reduce the chances of encountering areas of misunderstanding and confusion that can slow down the process or lead to costly errors.
After reviewing the facts of the accident and the available sources of evidence, our lawyers provide each potential client with some possible outcomes and strategies to consider. If we accept the case and the claimant wishes to go forward, we will begin to plan a thorough investigation into the causes of the crash and the arguments we can make to maximize the client’s compensation.
Our attorneys are personally invested in helping each client recover from his or her accident. We understand that getting medical care, communicating with the insurance company, making arrangements to pay the bills, and keeping up with family obligations can be difficult for people who are dealing with an injury.
We help our clients address crucial areas of concern, such as where to report the accident and how to ask the hospital to defer the medical bills until after the settlement. We can even assist with finding a doctor and securing a new means of transportation. While helping our clients get back on their feet, we focus on minimizing their out-of-pocket expenses to reduce the overall burden caused by the crash.
It is important for people seeking compensation in a car accident case to prepare their claims correctly, paying special attention to the kinds of damages they list. We set aside a designated time to sit with each of our clients and review all of the losses associated with the accident.
Whenever possible, we will suggest ways to increase the value of the claim by listing damages the client may not have thought to include. Understanding Spanish is often essential for getting a full sense of the accident’s impact.
Communication With the Insurance Company
For most clients, seeking a settlement from the other driver’s insurance company is the fastest and most reliable way to win compensation. Whether a given client speaks English or Spanish, we encourage all claimants to allow us to communicate with the insurance company on their behalf.
During the negotiations, we will present the evidence we have compiled in a series of logical arguments that will put pressure on the insurance company to accept the claim and honor its maximum value. We can recognize manipulative tactics and respond to counter arguments, thereby protecting the validity of our client’s claim. Any time our client receives a settlement offer that is too low, we can respond by asking the insurance company for a better one.
Handling Complex Cases
Some automobile accidents are more straightforward than others. We are quick to recognize factors that could lead to complications, such a pre-existing health condition, the involvement of a government vehicle, a wrongful death, and a situation involving an uninsured driver.
We advocate for our clients in all cases, taking the time to understand every nuance while working through the challenges. From the client’s perspective, sorting out complex details can be difficult to do in a second language. Our Spanish-speaking attorneys are ready to serve members of the Latino community when accident-related contingencies arise.
Preparation of the Evidence
If a client’s case goes to trial instead of yielding a settlement offer, the evidence must be prepared according to court standards. We ensure that the cases we take on are well-documented by utilizing a variety of sources, including:
- Footage of the crash
- Witness statements
- Official reports
- Hospital records
- Physical evidence on the vehicles
- Expert testimonies
Taking a case to trial can have pros and cons. When a client must decide between accepting a settlement offer and going to court, we will provide a candid recommendation based on our four decades of experience. If the client chooses to go to court, we are more than willing to litigate relentlessly on his or her behalf.
