Bay Area Vehicle Collision Lawyer

Bay Area Vehicle Collision Lawyer

The Bay Area is a beautiful place to live and to visit, and we experience plenty of traffic accidents as a result. You may be on a scooter, perhaps you are in a ‘Go Car’, you may be on a Vespa or motorcycle or any number of other transport modes. There are busses, trolleys, cable cars, autos, motorcycles all to consider. If someone’s negligence causes you to be injured, the negative consequences and financial losses can be considerable. An experienced Bay Area Vehicle Collision lawyer can skillfully advocate on your behalf for the compensation to which you are entitled under the law. 

Collision Statistics

Statistics show that car crashes happen on a regular basis in every part of California and the United States. For example:

  • There is an average of 6 million car accidents in the United States every year.
  • More than 90 people die in car collisions on our roadways every day, and an average of 3 million are injured in accidents each year.
  • Although seatbelts greatly reduce the risk of death, 1 in 7 vehicle occupants fails to wear them.
  • 6 percent of car collisions end in fatality, and 27 percent end in nonfatal injuries. 
  • 40 percent of all traffic fatalities involve alcohol; 30 percent involve speeding; 33 percent involve reckless driving.
  • Distracted drivers cause an average of 9 fatalities every day. 

Causes of Vehicle Collisions

Negligent, reckless, or aggressive drivers are inherently dangerous drivers who endanger everyone with whom they share the road. If you encounter a driver who seems to be dangerous, you should give them as much space as possible, though some accidents are unavoidable. Some common causes of vehicle collisions include:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to yield
  • Ignoring traffic signs, signals, and lights
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Road rage

No matter what causes an accident, there is always the chance for serious injuries and losses to result. If you believe that someone else was to blame for your accident, you should not wait to call an experienced Bay Area Vehicle Collision lawyer.

Distracted Drivers

Life is distracting, and distracted drivers are everywhere you look. While there are any number of distractions that can tempt a driver’s attention away from his or her primary task of driving safely, smartphones are one of the worst culprits. Sending and receiving texts takes an average of almost 5 seconds, which translates to driving blind (at highway speeds) for about the length of a football field, and that is not safe.

Serious Injuries from Collisions

The injuries associated with serious car collisions can be  catastrophic, which means injuries that prevent the victim from returning to gainful employment or their regular life activities. An injury of this magnitude is not only exceedingly expensive, but it also precludes the victim from earning income into the future – not to mention the devastating physical and emotional toll such an injury takes.
