Car Accidents

REGARDING AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY CLAIMS

Residents of southern California are often required to drive long distances to work and back. For many driving is necessary to their work. Streets and freeways are heavily traveled during the day and during off hours. An unfortunate consequence is the number of car accidents which occur on a daily basis. Under California personal injury law, a person who has been injured in a car accident because of another's negligence can file a claim for damages against the at-fault driver. In order to recover damages it is very important to work with a personal injury attorney who is highly experienced and has a long record of success.

Negligent drivers can cause accidents in any number of ways, such as:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding or racing
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Running a red light
  • Running a stop sign
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Tailgating
  • Texting and distracted driving

Not all car accidents are caused by a driver. Some vehicles are dangerous to drive because of a defective design or manufacturing defects. Defective automotive components may also be dangerous, such as accelerators which stick or tires which suddenly blow out. Improperly constructed or dangerous roads can also cause accidents. Tens of thousands of injuries from car accidents occur every year in this State. Many of those injured do not recover damages because they fail to act in time to get competent legal representation. Anyone who has been injured in a car accident is strongly advised to take action quickly to select a respected car accident lawyer who is passionate about recovering full damages for an injured person.
