Berkeley Auto Accident Attorney

Car accidents are as dangerous as they are common, and they are often caused by the negligence of other drivers. Drivers owe one another a considerable duty of care that includes following the rules of the road and driving with a focus on safety, and when they fail to do so, serious accidents often ensue. If you’ve been hurt by another motorist’s lack of care, it’s time to consult with an experienced Berkely auto accident attorney.

Common Forms Of Driver Negligence

There are, unfortunately, far too many forms of negligence for motorists to choose from, but some of the most common and the most dangerous include:

These practices are often the primary cause of auto accidents. 

Car Accidents Are Far More Common Than You May Realize

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shares several statistics from 2020 that highlight exactly how common fatal car accidents are, including:

  • In the United States, 38,824 people lost their lives in 35,766 deadly car accidents. 
  • The national average for the year was 1.34 deaths per 100 million miles driven and 11.7 fatalities per 100,000 people.
  • The average for the year in the State of California was 1.28 deaths per 100 million miles driven and 9.7 fatalities per 100,000 people.

Car accidents pose a considerable risk.

Your Losses

Car accidents are closely associated with considerable physical, financial, and emotional losses for which you can seek just compensation, including:

  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Medical costs that may include future related expenses
  • Decreased earnings that may include losses related to earning potential
  • Your physical and psychological pain and suffering

Seeking fair compensation that allows you to address the full scope of your losses can play a pivotal role in your recovery.

Seeking Compensation

You will seek compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company, which is paid to cover accident claims like yours. Unfortunately, too many insurance companies prioritize profits over fair settlements, which means you should be on the lookout for common insurance tactics like the following:

  • Claim denials that attempt to shut the process down
  • Early offers that are far too low
  • Stalling practices
  • Attempts to overly complicate the process
  • Efforts to push fault away from the policyholder and toward you
  • Efforts to diminish the extent of your losses

You can count on the insurance company being good at what it does, which makes having a dedicated auto accident attorney on your side in your best interest.
