EXPERIENCED TRAFFIC ACCIDENT LAWYERS IN CALIFORNIA

If you’re in a car accident, your first priority is seeking medical care. But once you’re sure there are no emergencies, the next step is seeking legal advice.

As a car accident victim, you may have legal rights you’re unaware of. You may be entitled to compensation for someone else’s reckless driving. And if you have medical bills, you may be entitled to damages to cover the costs.

Pursuing these legal rights alone is never advisable. For one thing, insurance companies are not out to get you the highest amount of compensation possible. They’ll do everything they can to keep payouts low – or avoid them completely.

What if you settle before talking to a traffic accident lawyer? You risk losing damages. You risk settling for far less than you deserve.

At the May Firm, we do not want this to happen. Whether you’re just starting your claim or you’ve already contacted your insurance company, call us immediately. We’ll evaluate your case, explain your legal rights, and represent your best interests.

As experienced personal injury attorneys, we care deeply about pursuing justice for our clients. With us on your side, insurers can’t bully or trick you into a low settlement. We simply won’t allow this to happen!

Next time your insurer calls you, tell them you’re hiring a California traffic lawyer – then call us. Our team will ensure you have the legal representation you deserve. 

For a no-obligation, free case evaluation, call (888) 510-2933.

“If I ever need a lawyer again I’m calling the May Firm. I was rear ended and had a ton of bills. They told me what my rights were and that they would take care of me. All I had to do was get to physical therapy. They did everything, and I ended up with a very nice settlement and a new car. Thank you! You exceeded my expectations!”

The Dangers of Driving on California Roadways

Roadways within California have unique challenges that can present a problem for drivers and increase the risk of a traffic accident when a driver fails to proceed with caution. As traffic accident lawyers in California, we see this all too frequently.

Weather

Wet roads on rainy days or early morning fog can create hazardous road conditions that require drivers to slow down and stay alert. During wildfire season, smoke and haze can fill the sky, reducing visibility for miles throughout the state. When a negligent driver fails to adapt to the change in weather conditions, the likelihood of a traffic accident increases.

Heavy Traffic

Major cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose, and their surrounding areas experience widespread heavy traffic congestion each day. Reckless, distracted, and aggressive drivers can make traffic jams a dangerous nightmare that puts nearby drivers and passengers at risk of injuries.

Busy Intersections

On interstates, travelers worry about the high speeds and congestion, but along city streets and neighborhood roads, drivers must worry about busy intersections. Intersections require drivers to follow traffic signals and traffic laws to ensure that vehicles can pass through safely and without incident.

Drivers who speed and fail to follow traffic regulations create dangerous situations in intersections that can cause traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

As intersection car accident attorneys in California, we know just how dangerous these junctions can be. If you’re injured due to someone else’s reckless driving, we want to know about it.

Winding Interstates and Roads

Whether on the coast or in the mountains, California’s mountainous terrain and winding roads provide scenic views and interesting drives. They can also endanger motorists when reckless drivers share the road.

“A friendly and professional firm. Always answered questions quickly. Highly recommended to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer. Extremely satisfied with the outcome.”

AREAS AT HIGH RISK OF ACCIDENTS IN CALIFORNIA

California’s roadways host the daily commutes of its residents and an influx of travelers from other states and countries that visit the state. Summers are typically the busiest, with tourists flocking to one of the state’s many vacation destinations. At any time of year, you will encounter busy roads and traffic throughout the state.

Metropolitan areas are hazardous for road travelers mainly due to the heavy congestion and the sheer number of passenger and commercial vehicles on the major roadways at any given time.

Rural and suburban roads may seem less dangerous due to slower traffic and less congestion but can still result in serious traffic-related accidents due to busy intersections, mountainous terrain, and negligent drivers.

Most Common Types of Traffic Accidents on California Roads

There’s no limit to what might cause a car accident. However, driver negligence is a common reason for road accidents.

Examples of negligent behaviors that can lead to an accident include the following:

HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE TO SEEK RECOVERY AFTER A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT IN CALIFORNIA?

In most circumstances, traffic accident-related claims are initially processed through an insurer. In most cases, the parties settle at this stage. You may, however, need to file a lawsuit in some situations. When the parties dispute a determination of fault, they disagree about fair compensation, or one party lacks insurance coverage or has inadequate insurance coverage, you may need to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties.

The statute of limitations for your jurisdiction limits the time to file a lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit in time, you can’t recover compensation for the losses in an accident. In California, a car accident victim has only two years from when an accident happens to file a lawsuit against an insurer or the at-fault party.

While two years may seem like a long time, it is actually on the shorter end of the spectrum for statutes of limitations. Preparing a personal injury claim can take time. Even once a claim is filed with an insurer, negotiations, investigations, and other processes can take time.

In cases with severe injuries, the extent of your damages may not even be known for quite some time, which can prevent a quick settlement. Two years can creep up quickly, and if you are not careful, you cannot recover compensation.

Contact a traffic accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident occurs. An attorney understands the applicable laws and the steps necessary to prepare and protect your rights. The earlier an attorney represents you in your case, the higher the likelihood that you will achieve a positive outcome in a reasonable time.
