When You Don’t File A Claim

If you are a commuter, you might found yourself inching along on your way home in the usual morning bumper-to-bumper traffic. As you pass the accident that has been causing the traffic and glare hatefully, but you’re also glad no one was seriously injured. We never want to be those people, especially in traffic. But you know when you will feel that dreaded sudden jolt as the car behind you wasn’t paying attention, didn’t stop on time, and just barely touched your rear bumper. And even though it feels minor, you both have to pull over to the nearest shoulder. Generally, there’s a little bit of damage in fender benders, but every once in a while, you’ll be surprised to see that there is no obvious damage to either of your cars. Not a scratch or dent in sight. What do you do in this situation? What if you were the at-fault driver and there’s a risk that the other driver involved will file a surprise and maybe trivial claim? Even if there is no visible damage, or maybe there’s only a small scratch or paint mark, there could be a small amount of damage that you did not notice. This...

When your totaled car has been paid off

When you total your car, it can ruin your whole year, especially if you still owe money on it. Nowadays, it has been an increasingly common issue since there are more people who need to take out longer car loans in order to afford a vehicle. According to finder.com, around 44% of American adults depend on an auto loan to pay for a car. If your vehicle is totaled and you owe more money on it than what it is actually worth, your car insurance company will only pay for the actual cash value (ACV). The ACV is the fair market value of your vehicle before it was in an auto accident. The money from your insurance wouldn't even go directly to you. Since your car is financed, it will most likely go straight to the bank. Another scenario is that you would get a check made out to you, which you will need to sign and send to your finance company. The car accident attorneys at One Law Group in Beverly Hills are available to help you gather the information you need in order to file a claim against the at-fault driver. They can even approach the insurance company on...

Get Compensated for Your Slip and Fall Accident

Slip and fall accidents are personal injury cases, and plaintiffs may get compensated for damages resulting from the accident.

Here’s what you should know before filing a slip and fall claim. “Slip and fall” cases essentially refer to an accident where a plaintiff slips, trips, stumbles, and falls on a business or person-owned property. If the person is injured or experiences pain after the fall, then the property owner can be held liable if he or she was aware of the potentially unstable or slippery surface and chose not to act upon it. This is referred to as “negligence,” or the failure of the defendant to act reasonably to promote care and safety on the property. Determining if a business or person is at fault for your slip and fall damages is a complicated process that...
