When injured in an accident, don’t wait around and subject yourself to the whim of the insurance companies — contact a Modesto car accident lawyer instead. Geoffrey C. Hutcheson has more than 36 years of experience representing people who have been in auto accidents. We understand the fears you have about adding legal fees to the sudden medical and vehicle repair costs you have to worry about, but fear not — we charge no fees until you succeed in your case. And we zealously advocate for you in court. Trust in our significant experience and our passion for the law to provide a positive resolution for you and your loved ones.
A thorough approach to auto accident cases
The first step in any personal injury case is to determine the cause of the accident. This can be rather difficult unless there are witnesses around to give their accounts of exactly what happened. We take the time to hire outside investigators to re-create the accident based on the evidence at the scene and the damage caused to the vehicles. This accident re-creation enables your attorney to prove the liability of the other driver.
Our tactics give us a high success rate in obtaining adequate compensation for our clients. You focus on your physical recovery as we go to work analyzing the accident and assertively advocating for you in and out of the courtroom.
If you’re involved in an auto accident, remember these three tips. They’ll help your Modesto lawyer with the investigation.
- Take photos. If you do not have a camera or a phone with a camera handy, create written documentation of damage to all vehicles at the scene of the accident. This information is extremely important for your lawyers.
- Do not accept any blame for the accident. Exchange your insurance information and check to see if everyone is OK. Keep in mind that accepting even a small portion of the blame sacrifices much of the leverage you could have later on.
- Don’t let the insurance companies push you around. You pay your insurance company to cover you in the event of an accident. If it fails to do so, let us fight on your behalf.
