Automobile Accidents

San Diego Auto Accident Attorney

An automobile accident takes place every six seconds in the U.S. There are approximately 6 million car accidents in the United States every year. That translates into approximately five and a quarter million auto accidents annually. Auto accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States and many result in permanent paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia. Even when injuries are relatively minor, an injury victim is forced to suffer with minor whiplash-type injuries, soft tissue injuries, fractures, cuts, and lacerations. Many, due to financial necessity have to work through the pain.

The primary causes for an automobile accident are carelessness, negligent driving, excessive speed and alcohol. Teenage drivers, cell phones, texting and multi-tasking are also to blame. We believe drivers with irresponsible behavior and a lack of respect for safety should take liability for their actions.

California is known for its share of reckless drivers and the excessive amount of vehicles on its roads. In all likelihood, you’ve probably have been involved in an automobile accident before or have just suffered the effects of one. Immediately after an accident, you are pulled into a difficult and confusing process which includes negotiating with an insurance adjuster, finding a doctor, repairing your vehicle and paying for your medical bills. These tasks, and dealing with the effects of an injury are even more difficult when you have suffered a serious bodily injury or loss of a loved one. We realize that every case is unique and personal. That’s why we offer a free consultation and take the time to better understand your situation.
