When Negligence Leads To Your Crash

There are a variety of reasons that car or truck collisions occur. In certain situations, neither driver is at fault. In others, a driver’s negligent, careless or reckless act leads to a crash and causes life-changing injuries.

Common reasons accidents occur on California’s roads include:

  • Reckless driving, such as speeding, tailgating and aggressive driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving, including cellphone usage and texting
  • Driving while drowsy or fatigued
  • Running stop signs or traffic lights

After your accident, it is critical to speak with a skilled attorney before you contact your insurer. Insurance companies are quick to offer lowball payouts that may not cover all your accident expenses. When challenged, they will delay their response and use other high-pressure techniques to get you to drop your claim.

Our attorneys know how to counter these tricks and will not stop until you receive a fair settlement offer.
