Car accidents cases that involve serious or catastrophic injuries can be very complex, even when fault is apparent. Insurance companies that represent at-fault drivers typically won’t offer a settlement amount that will completely cover your losses. As they are businesses that are interested in their profit margins, rather than paying out fair compensation on claims. Without an experienced car accident lawyer advocating for you and protecting your rights, your financial future is at risk.
The most common causes of accidents in Perris are acts of negligence by a driver, such as the following:
Cell phones are the root of many accidents. Texting while driving, making a phone call, looking up directions, eating food, applying makeup, speaking to passengers are all examples of how a driver’s attention can be averted from the road and lead to an accident.
Failing to follow posted speed limits can lower a driver’s ability to react to things on the road, and can result in serious injury accidents, or possibly a fatality.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is one of the most harmful things a driver can do. Motor vehicles cannot be effectively operated by drivers who are impaired.
Drivers who have a complete disregard for the safety of other people or property on the road. (e.g. excessive lane changes, improper passing, running red lights or stop signs, etc.)
It’s very risky for a driver to get behind the wheel when they are tried, or even drowsy. Fatigue can impair driving similarly to alcohol.
Failing to slow down or use lights when there is bad weather, such as rain, sleet, or snow, can lower a driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of an accident.
These are only a few of the countless other causes of car accidents in Perris.
If you have suffered a serious injury in a car accident, an attorney can help you hold them accountable for the following types of compensation:
Economic damages, such as medical bills or lost wages may be relatively simple to calculate, whereas non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, are difficult to estimate. A lawyer can assist you by evaluating your case and estimating its value, before negotiating for a settlement amount that is fair.
Keep in mind that California is a pure comparative fault state. That means that you can recover damages from another party, even if you hold part of the blame. However, your settlement or jury award will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
