How San Francisco Car Accident Lawyers Help with Insurance Companies
One of the most obvious steps to take following a California car accident is to file an insurance claim. However, for any number of reasons, some people make the mistake of dealing directly with these insurance companies without seeking the advice of experienced San Francisco auto accident attorneys. Unfortunately, the failure to take this step can severely harm the overall position of someone who has been injured in a crash.
Specifically, it needs to be understood that auto insurance companies are for-profit corporations. This means that their ultimate priority is to their bottom line, which is clearly affected by the number of claims they can avoid paying.
