Defending Victims of Car Accidents

California is home to the most car accidents per year. In the United States as a whole, car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death. A majority of these accidents could have been avoided had it not been for the negligence of certain drivers. Car companies have been working on solutions that not only protect passengers when they get into an accident, but prevent accidents from happening all together. Even with all the advancements in motor vehicle technology over the past few years, California is still home to many car accidents and injuries every year. Car crashes are caused by a number of different factors:

  • Defective Vehicle Parts: Vehicles are tested and manufactured for safety, but that doesn't mean that they are immune to error. It is always possible for breaks to give out, tires to burst, and steering to lock up, among other things. If a vehicle mechanical failure left you unable to control your car and caused an accident, then you may be entitled to a claim against your car's manufacturer.
  • Drunk Driving: If you were involved in an accident involving a drunk driver, there is no question that you are entitled to a claim. Drunk driving is an extreme form of negligence on behalf of a driver and those drivers should be held accountable for their actions.
  • Distracted Driving: When drivers get distracted, accidents happen. There are many different potential distraction hazards for drivers, including fatigue, cell phone use, eating or changing the radio among many other things.
  • Unsafe Roads: Sometimes accidents are unavoidable because of the condition of the road. Many times, brush or trees could be covering vital road signs, roads may be damaged or a city may fail to scrape or salt their roads during winter storms.

If your car accident was caused by any of the following then you may have a car accident insurance claim. Your accident does not even necessarily have to involve another driver for you to be entitled to a claim, so to find out more about what you may be entitled to after your car accident, contact us today.
