The roadways of Orange County can be a dangerous place for motorists. According to statistics maintained by the California Department of Transportation, there were nearly 12,000 reported accidents in Orange County last year. Many of these crashes happen on the busiest roadways, such as interstates and freeways. However, they also take place within cities and on quiet neighborhood streets. Rear-end and broadside collisions make up the most common types of accidents, with nearly 63 percent of collisions occurring in this manner. Other types of crashes that occur frequently are head-on accidents, sideswipe collisions, and vehicles striking an object.
A car accident in Orange County usually takes place suddenly and without much warning. The unfortunate aspect of most collisions is that they affect innocent motorists. Every year, thousands of victims are hurt in car accidents that were not their fault. A crash can cause many unforeseen and unexpected consequences, including extended pain and suffering, lost wages, high medical costs, and more.
If you or a loved one have been hurt in an Orange County car accident, you will want to seek legal representation as soon as possible. In the aftermath of the crash, you may receive a call from an insurance company wanting you to quickly settle your claim.
