Car Accidents in California

Every day hundreds of car accidents occur in California. Many of them result in serious injuries and death. There are many reasons why car accidents occur. While some accidents are caused by factors that aren’t anyone’s fault, such as poor weather, the overwhelming majority of accidents in California are caused by driver error or driver negligence. Southern California is one of the most dangerous places to drive in the country, as many motorists drive recklessly. Some of the most common behaviors that often lead to accidents in California include distracted driving, texting while driving, impaired driving, fatigued driving, road rage, tailgating, and failing to follow traffic laws.

After an accident, there are a lot of new things that you are dealing with and adjusting to. Perhaps you’re facing debilitating injuries, medical bills, vehicle repairs, and loss of income. A car accident can cause significant interruptions to your normal life and take quite some time to recover from.

When you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation from those who caused the accident. Many people try to handle all of the legal and insurance matters on their own after an accident. However, that generally doesn’t lead to the best outcome for the injured party. The insurance company will use whatever tactics they can to try to minimize your payout. When you’re recovering and already dealing with so much, the last thing you need to deal with is the insurance company giving you a hard time or minimizing your claim.

The days after a car accident can feel overwhelming. A trusted car accident lawyer can help you regain control by helping you file a claim against the party at fault. They are aware of the insurance company’s tactics to minimize their payout and can defend against them on your behalf. An experienced attorney will fight the insurance company to get you what you deserve to be able to move on with your life.

If you were in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you should speak to an experienced car accident lawyer right away. Contact a Santa Ana car accident attorney by calling (888) 539-3154 to see how we can help you.
