Car Accidents

Vehicle collisions are a daily occurrence in large cities such as San Diego. With more and more people driving while distracted, vehicle collisions continue to increase each year. A serious car accident can cause significant property damage, severe injury, and, in some cases, death. In most cases, you will have to deal with an insurance company to receive the compensation you need in the aftermath. Claims can be complicated, and insurers, with their teams of accident personnel and legal staff, generally do everything possible to limit your payout. For an experienced car accident lawyer, contact our firm today.

Car Accidents in San Diego

Car accidents occur daily across the U.S., most notably and commonly in high-density urban areas. Unfortunately, few of us plan for such an event, and even fewer understand the process or how to protect ourselves thoroughly in the aftermath. This is why it is essential to hire an attorney who is well-versed in personal injury law and experienced in how to help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to under those laws.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, 3,563 traffic deaths occurred in the state in 2018. Deaths from alcohol-related accidents numbered over 1,000, while 42 percent of drivers killed in car crashes in 2018 found illegal or legal drugs in their systems. In San Diego County, in 2017, 20,648 individuals were injured or killed in car accidents. These statistics demonstrate how often negligence is involved in car crashes that result in the wrongful injuries and deaths of others. Injuries in a car accident can have a wide range of severity. These can include:

  • Bruises, lacerations, and sprains
  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Neck, back, hip, and shoulder injuries
  • Internal injuries and bleeding
  • Brain injuries, including traumatic brain injuries leading to permanent disabilities
  • Spinal cord injuries that can result in forms of paralysis
  • Loss of limbs
  • Loss of eyesight, hearing, and other sensory capacities

Injuries like these are not just physical but can result in emotional or psychological damage and can last long after the crash. These emotional types of injury can be just as severe, requiring therapies for recovery. Pain and suffering can be challenging to put value on, so you need an experienced attorney who knows how to quantify them. No matter what type of injury you have suffered from a negligent driver, you deserve to be compensated for it.

Causes of Car Accidents

The above types of injuries can be the result of various forms of negligent or reckless driving, including:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • Texting while driving or engaging in other distracting behavior
  • Speeding
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Following too closely
  • Simply not paying attention
  • and violating other traffic laws.

Why Should You Talk with a San Diego Car Accident Lawyer After an Accident?

Vehicle accidents cause severe physical and emotional harm. But unfortunately, it’s the time right after an accident that a victim must deal with the complexities of the accident. This involves filing claims and dealing with medical treatment and insurance companies to obtain coverage for the costs associated with the car accident. This can be a daunting task for a person without expertise in dealing with insurance companies. Car accident personal injury cases can be complicated. In these situations, it is crucial to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.

At Queen Yasmine Personal Injury Law, our mission is to help you through this stressful time while vigorously advocating for your interests in disputes with opposing parties and insurance companies. From retention until the case settlement, we can assist you with medical concerns and other financial issues. We also make sure to be available during the complicated post-accident process and answer any questions. We strive to shoulder the unfair burden you may be under while we fight for maximum compensation.

Comparative Negligence in Car Accident Claims

When both drivers are at fault in a car crash, it generally falls under California’s comparative fault policy. Under this policy, you can still recover damages reduced by the amount of fault you had for causing the incident. So, for example, if it is determined that you had a 45 percent fault, your damages would be reduced by that amount.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Since most insurance settlements state that the amount agreed upon will be the only compensation paid, once you sign a settlement agreement, it’s usually difficult to recover any more compensation. Call our firm today to learn more about what next steps you can take if you have already signed an agreement.
