Los Angeles & Orange County Negligent Auto Accidents Are On The Rise

More than 6 million car accidents are reported every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Tragically, more than 30% of those result in serious injuries or even death. Car accidents can happen anywhere at any time. Whether you’re driving the kids to school, parked in a super market, driving on some oil-slicked road at 3AM or driving out of a car wash. Car accidents happen at all speeds, at all times of the day and people do walk away from car accidents, unfortunately thousands of people lose their lives every year in negligent car accidents. Every day, automobile accidents result in serious injuries that threaten out lifestyle, our wallets and sometimes even a loved ones life. Accidents could be caused by an SUV Rollovers, texting, elderly drivers, DUI, brake failure, steering failure, road rage and on and on and on… in the blink of an eye, cars collide and change lives forever.

In most cases, in most automobile accidents, it’s another person’s fault. Someone else is responsible and liable for the injuries, pain, suffering, medical bills and psychological impact of the victim of that accident. Who make those people pay? Personal injury lawyers stand by the victims, become their legal advocates and make sure that the negligent party compensates the victim.

Did you know that most victims of car accidents never know that they are victims — they just walk away, take whatever settlement their insurance company offers and never know that there may be more financial compensation due to them. They suspect someone else was at fault and still they don’t take that incredibly easy next step to find out if they have a legal claim. Why? Perhaps fear, laziness, ignorance about insurance and state traffic laws, who knows…there are as many reasons do not contact a personal injury law firm as there are causes for car accidents. The simple fact is that if you think you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident due to the negligence of others, you need to contact a auto accident personal injury law firm to understand you rights.

How long does it take? No longer than picking up the phone, dialing and talking to a helpful lawyer who has years of experience protecting accident victims just like you.

How much will I get? That depends on many factors, but most importantly if there was negligence in the first place which can only be determined if you contact a car accident lawyer. A lawyer that will aggressively pursue your claim, that will get you the fair and just settlement you and your loved ones deserve.
