Car accidents happen, and they are over in seconds, but the injuries and damages caused by a collision can have long-term consequences. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident caused by someone else’s reckless actions, you have the right to seek compensation for the losses you have suffered. However, at-fault drivers and their insurance companies can make the claims process difficult.
The attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger know that injury victims are often left undercompensated, especially when they settle their injury claims without an attorney. Since 1959, our law firm has been representing injured clients and advocating for their right to full and fair compensation from responsible parties.

Menlo Park Car Accidents And Insurance Companies
Insurance companies often reach out to injured parties immediately after a car accident. Adjusters have the same goal in common, which is to settle their claims for as little as possible. Insurance companies often make settlement offers before you have even discovered the full extent of your injuries or spoken with legal counsel. As mentioned above, injured parties who settle claims without an attorney often do not receive adequate compensation for their losses.
Before you speak with an insurance company representative or agree to a settlement, you should consult with a personal injury attorney. There are many factors and complicated calculations that go into valuing injury claims. If you settle your claim before your total losses are calculated, you run the risk of agreeing to accept an amount that does not cover your medical bills and other accident-related damages.
