Car Accident Cases in California
Car crashes can occur in many ways but they are generally caused by human error. These errors are considered to be negligence in most cases.
Examples of the negligent causes of car accidents can include:
- Drunk and/or drugged driving
- Driving while texting or otherwise using a cell phone
- Violating other traffic laws, such as running red lights or stop signs
- Aggressive driving, also known as road rage, leading to tailgating and other dangerous behaviors
- Drowsy driving
- Defectively designed vehicles, such as SUVs prone to rollovers
- Defective car parts, such as tires, airbags, brakes, and more
- Poor road design or maintenance
When car accidents occur, the physical, emotional, and financial toll on victims can be enormous. You can be faced with mounting medical expenses, loss of income, and extensive damage to or total loss of your vehicle as well as emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. In cases where catastrophic injuries have occurred, you may be permanently disabled with a loss of the ability to support yourself while needing lifelong medical treatment, personal assistance, or accommodations made to your home.
In a negligent-based car accident, you may be entitled to all of medical costs, both past and future, lost wages or income, lost earning capacity, property damage to your car, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. In making your claim, you will ordinarily be dealing with an insurer who will likely try to get you to settle quickly and for less than what your claim is worth. These large corporations are commonly more interested in preserving their profitability at your expense and may engage in pressure tactics against vulnerable injury victims.

We have a strong track record of standing up to large and powerful corporations seeking to minimize or deny their liability.
