If you have been seriously injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else, you should not have to take on the financial burden of medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses. At the office of Dale Gribow Attorney at Law in Palm Desert, California, I advocate for individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own.
As an experienced personal injury lawyer, I understand the tactics that are used by insurance providers to pay less than the full amount or deny valid claims altogether. I have an extensive track record of building strong cases that often get resolved without the need to litigate. If a fair agreement is not offered during negotiations, however, I am prepared to fight for you in trial.
Personal Attention And Clear Communication
Suffering an injury, being unable to work and facing a mountain of bills is stressful. I will ease your concerns following a car crash by handling all communication with insurance providers and bill collectors, whether they are related to the medical treatment you receive or something else.
I work directly with clients from the initial consultation through the resolution of the case. The insurance industry and legal world are full of jargon; I emphasize clear communication with my clients and make sure they are fully informed about their options.
Get the Medical Treatment You Need
The most important responsibility that injured parties have is to get medical treatment as soon after the auto accident as possible. Waiting to see a doctor can weaken your case. The doctor you see should be well-versed in writing full medical/legal reports regarding diagnosis and treatment, which will be important to your case.
I have been an annual lecturer at the International College of Surgeons on the topic of How to Write a Medical-Legal Report. I can also help you find the right medical specialists if necessary.
Don't Tell The Insurance Company Too Much
It is also important to speak with an attorney before you disclose a lot of information to insurance providers. This is important because it not only matters what you say, but what the insurance adjuster believes they heard you say.
Many injured parties mistakenly assume that insurance providers are on their side, especially if they have made premium payments to the insurance provider for years. The truth is that these companies are looking for any information that will help them deny your claim. Remember, silence is golden and handcuffs are silver, so don't talk to police or the insurance company without your lawyer's permission!
Put An Experienced Attorney In Your Corner
In addition to being selected every year as "TOP LAWYER" by California's prestigious Palm Springs Life and "Top Lawyer" by Inland Empire Magazine, I have also received a perfect 10.0 AVVO Peer Review rating from my fellow attorneys and have been named "Man of the Year" seven times by the City of Palm Desert and the City of Hope. "Dale Gribow Day" has also been declared four times.
