Car Accident Law Firms in Los Angeles

Car Accident Law Firms in Los Angeles

No one wants to get into a car accident. At a minimum, an accident ruins an otherwise good day. Even if no one is hurt, you have to spend time inspecting your car, sharing contact information, and making an insurance claim. If you are lucky, you still face hours of frustration.

But that is the best-case scenario. Spending a few hours filing paperwork and calling insurance companies sounds wonderful compared to the alternative. If you are injured, you could spend weeks, months, or even years receiving medical treatments and hundreds of hours fighting insurance companies.

And even that is still better than some outcomes, where you might never get even close to the money you deserve for your injuries. Paying your own medical bills and other expenses after a car accident can set you on an undeserved path of financial ruin. But what options do you have to avoid that?

The best option for avoiding the worst-case scenario is researching the best car accident law firms in Los Angeles and hiring a lawyer who can protect your rights and finances. There are many car accident law firms in Los Angeles, so finding the right one may seem overwhelming. Luckily, you need to look no further than Morgan & Morgan.

Our law firm has been protecting Los Angeles families for decades and has attorneys nationwide. We have the resources to keep fighting your case no matter how hard the insurance companies fight back. When faced with an army of corporate policies and lawyers, you need an equally large army of attorneys to fight back.

If you have been injured in a car accident in Los Angeles, contact our law firm today to schedule a free case evaluation and learn about your legal options.

What You Should Look for in Car Accident Law Firms in Los Angeles

Every law firm is not made the same. Some law firms have one attorney working alone, possibly supported by a single secretary. Other law firms have dozens or hundreds of attorneys working at all hours of the day.

And that is just one example of the differences that exist between law firms. If you have suffered a serious accident in Los Angeles, you need a firm that is well-prepared to get you the compensation you deserve for that accident. The following are things you should consider when choosing a law firm.

Hours of Operation

Car accidents don’t just happen during business hours; nighttime and weekend accidents are extremely common. And if you suffer an injury outside of usual business hours, you can’t afford to wait for an attorney to get into the office.

Many car accident law firms in Los Angeles allow you to leave a message at any time, but few let you speak to an attorney 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Morgan and Morgan is one of those rare latter few, and that is important if you get into an accident at night or over the weekend.

Furthermore, if your lawyer takes off on the weekends, that means they aren’t working on your case during that time. And since time matters when you are facing large medical bills, it’s not optimal to choose a lawyer who is unavailable two days out of every seven.

Number of Attorneys

While too many cooks may spoil the broth, the same isn’t true for lawyers. The more attorneys working at a law firm, the stronger your legal team is. Every lawyer has different experiences and skills. When a law firm has dozens or hundreds of attorneys, your lawyer has more people to consult if a tricky matter of law arises.

Our law firm has dozens of lawyers per office and hundreds nationwide. This means that there is always someone who can assist with a case when needed. It also means that if your case requires additional resources, we have enough staff to handle it without having to sacrifice someone else’s case.

Familiarity With Your Type of Case

Every case is different. But some cases are more similar than others. If you were hit by a drunk driver, an attorney who focuses on drunk driving cases will serve you better than a lawyer who deals with all types of car accidents. And even the latter is better than a general personal injury attorney.

At our law firm, you never have to settle for a generalist. We have a lawyer who focuses on the types of cases that match your circumstances. If your case is complicated enough, we can even assign multiple attorneys to ensure every aspect of your case is handled by a lawyer who practices that specific type of law.


How do you communicate with your friends and family? Some people prefer meeting in person, and others prefer phone calls. Many people, particularly those from younger generations, like to use digital forms of communication. The point is that everybody communicates differently.

Being able to communicate with your attorney the way you want is incredibly important. It will make you feel more comfortable and better ensure that you get important information when and how you need it. Car accident law firms in Los Angeles all have different communications policies.

The best policies are those that let you choose to communicate with your lawyer however you want. For example, at Morgan & Morgan, we are happy to:

  • Meet you in person
  • Talk to you over the phone
  • Chat with you digitally
  • Send and receive emails

Adapting to the needs of our clients improves communication. And we consider good communication essential to any relationship with a client.

To that end, we also prioritize keeping you informed. One of the worst things that a law firm can do to someone who is recovering from a car accident injury is to go radio silent. 

You probably don’t want daily updates. But you do want to know what is happening with your case and have a sense of how long it will take. And if you do want daily updates, we are happy to provide them.

What to Expect When You Hire a Car Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles

If possible, we recommend contacting a car accident law firm as soon as possible after the accident. This means you might be at the scene of the crash or in the hospital when you first connect with a lawyer. Depending on the availability of attorneys and your location, we might meet you where you are.

Even if we can’t, we will schedule a free consultation and case evaluation as soon as possible. The sooner we can determine whether you have a case, the sooner you will know what to expect and what your options are for pursuing your claim.

When you initially contact us, expect to answer a few important questions. We will try to keep it simple and short because we know that you are probably in pain and dealing with more than just talking to a lawyer. But any questions you can answer will improve our ability to assist you.

If you are still at the accident scene and able to safely move around, we may even ask you to collect some evidence. Again, our attorneys can do this later, but it may help your case if you can do it immediately after the accident.

The next major event will be the case evaluation. We will discuss the details of your case and determine the approximate value of your claim. Based on this information, we will present options and allow you to decide how you want to proceed.

Hopefully, you will choose to proceed with our law firm. But even if you don’t, we won’t charge you for the consultation.

After that, you will need to be patient. Our attorneys will spend the next few weeks investigating, filing paperwork, collecting evidence, and communicating with insurance companies. Our goal is to have an airtight case by the time we start negotiating for your settlement.

Typically, this means we need to fully understand the extent of your injuries. And we can’t know that until doctors have evaluated you and prescribed treatment. We might suggest visiting specific doctors who specialize in particular types of injuries, but we can usually rely on the expertise of whatever doctors you choose.

Even though you will have to wait for a while, don’t expect to be uninformed during that time. Our attorneys provide regular updates so that you know how your case is progressing. Additionally, we will check up on you to determine how your recovery is going. Helping you recover from injuries is the main reason we do this job.

After a few weeks, we will attempt to negotiate a fair settlement large enough to cover all your expenses and compensate you for your pain. 

While court cases might have the potential for more compensation, you also take the risk of not receiving anything. A settlement means that you know you are getting the money you need and will get that money quickly.

If you would prefer to go to trial, you can choose that option. Otherwise, your case will be complete.

  • Do I Have to Pay if I Don’t Get Any Money?

The fee structure doesn’t change, no matter how long the case takes or how much work we do. We will explain the fee structure to you in detail during the initial consultation.

  • Can You Also Handle Criminal Car Accident Cases?
