Car Accident Lawyer
As a car accident attorney, my team and I have been successfully representing personal injury victims of car accidents in Roseville, Sacramento, Oakland, Stockton, and surrounding areas for over a decade. With valuable experience investigating and evaluating vehicle accidents, including truck accidents, we can produce the best possible outcome for you.
Here are some examples of the types of car accident cases we’ve won:
Drunk Driving Accidents
Victims of drunk driving accidents and other types of DUI can pursue compensation in multiple ways, from a case settlement to criminal prosecution. If there was a fatal collision in which you lost a loved one, you may also have a wrongful death case. Contact us as quickly as possible after the drunk driving accident so our team can get to work collecting evidence and police reports right away.
Distracted Driving Accidents
With today’s pervasive use of personal technology, distracted driving accidents are currently the leading cause of injury collisions in America. Despite the ban, irresponsible drivers still text and drive. Even eating or smoking in the car can impair a person’s ability to drive safely. If you’ve been injured in a car accident because of someone else’ negligence, you deserve just compensation.
Teen Driving Accidents
Teen car accident rates are higher than any other age group due to a number of factors like increased risk-taking, lack of skill and poor hazard detection. In many cases, the driver’s parents may be held liable in a teen car accident. One of our experienced car accident attorneys can make sure you recover your medical and property damages.
Neck Injury Accidents
Neck injury accidents can range from minor injuries that heal relatively quickly to severe neck injuries that can take years to resolve. Whiplash is common car accident injury that can damage the delicate tissues in your neck. Sometimes neck injury symptoms aren’t immediately felt, so if you begin to notice pain, tingling, numbness or dizziness even several days after your accident, first seek medical help, then contact a car accident lawyer.
Uninsured Motorist Accidents
If you’ve been the victim of a car accident caused by an uninsured motorist, don’t despair. Your own uninsured motorist insurance will cover your damages and take on the legal burden of seeking compensation from the driver. However, insurance adjusters often try to get away with paying as little as possible. It’s a good idea to talk to a car accident attorney before talking to your insurance company to make sure you know how much you can rightfully claim.
Negligent Road Design Accidents
Sometimes a car accident is the result of negligent road design, e.g. poorly placed traffic signals, poorly graded curves, or obstructive landscaping. The liable party in negligent road design accidents is often a government agency, so cases can be very complicated and must follow strict guidelines. Complex engineering and mathematical questions will need to be answered in order to prove your case, so hiring an experienced attorney is a must.
Car Accident Safety
Injury is best prevented by following car accident safety measures, before and after an accident. Remember that even though you might have an excellent driving record, you never know when another driver may be distracted or intoxicated. If an accident is unavoidable, take steps to keep yourself safe until help arrives.
What to do After an Accident
If you are unavoidably injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Once you are medically stable, contact a car accident attorney for a free case evaluation. Do not speak with an insurance company representative, either from your own policy or the other driver’s. Insurance companies will do their best to pay out as little as possible, even if it doesn’t completely cover your damages. Read our car accident checklist to learn more.
