No one likes to get caught up in a costly lawsuit, but I had no choice but to find an auto accident attorney in Sacramento after an incident occurred in which I simply had no choice but to get legal representation. I was leaving my drive way on a foggy morning when I was hit by a city truck. They were going way to fast and not taking the fog into account and the result is that my car was nearly totaled. It looked like a total loss and ended up costing thousands of dollars to fix.
Imagine the anger I felt when the police tried to shrug off the accident. They even had the gall to tell me that nothing would happen anyway because it’s the city and you can’t beat city hall. I called my insurance company and they said they’d work with me to get compensation, but that it could take a long time because the city government has a lot of money and lawyers and they can stonewall forever. I did not want to hear this. I also didn’t want to hear the dismissive tone of the city employee I talked to when I called to complain.
So I hired a lawyer! I’ve got money and two can play this game. I didn’t even wait for the process to get going, just got myself an excellent lawyer and started having them send letters to the city government threatening lawsuits. Maybe I got lucky, which I doubt because I got a great lawyer, but the city decided to pay the cost to repair my car without dragging us into court. I’d call that a great deal. No one wants to go through the legal process, but sometimes you just have to stand up for your rights. That’s where a great lawyer comes in.
