Leading Causes of Automobile Accidents in California

Injured in a crash? Contact our California personal injury attorneys now.

Car accidents are, unfortunately, a common occurrence in California. From minor fender benders in parking lots to multiple car pileups on crowded highways, thousands of car accidents occur annually. Unfortunately, the truth remains that despite the frequency of incidents, car accidents are still completely preventable if only drivers operated their vehicles more safely and attentively.

If you have been injured as a result of an accident, speaking with a California personal injury attorney could be integral to the success of your claim. Only with professional help will you be able to prove the specific cause of a car accident.

Some of the leading causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving (talking on the phone, texting, eating)
  • Reckless and aggressive driving, including speeding, swerving, or tailgating
  • Inclement weather, including rain, snow, or wind
  • Road conditions, including dim roads, lack of light, or driving at dusk / dawn
  • Running red lights or failing to observe stop signs
  • Failure to adhere to traffic laws, including illegal turns, wrong-way driving, or unsafe lane change
  • Inexperienced teenage drivers, elderly drivers, or other at-risk drivers
  • Design defects and automobile part failure
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

We Know What it Takes to Leverage a Car Accident Claim

Like many other personal injury lawsuits, the success of a car accident claim will rely heavily on proving the fault (or liability) of another party. Though this may seem simple and straightforward, there are often nuances and complexities involved in this area of law. Specific factors involved in the accident may have an impact on the amount of financial compensation that you ultimately receive.

Even if the other party has already admitted fault, we can stay at your side and make certain the insurance company plays by the rules and provides you with your deserved amount of financial compensation. Don't be tempted to settle for less than what you deserve.

Whether our service is needed in negotiation or in litigation, our California car crash lawyers will push for the best possible outcome for you. We are confident in our ability to take any legal matter to court, due to the likelihood that we can create a persuasive strategy that can compel a panel of jurors to award a greater amount for certain acts of recklessness or gross negligence.

The Dunnion Law Firm has been providing personal injury assistance to those in need since 1975. We care about our purpose and do not take the trust placed in us lightly. For this reason, we always act with your best interests in mind. Part of our thorough investigations of your claim will include determining the most suitable party or parties against whom to file suit.

Oftentimes it is simply the other driver who is at fault but there may be instances where a third party is involved. These could include the manufacturer of a defective car part, or the institution that served a drunk driver alcohol. Whatever caused your accident, we can be trusted to aggressively pursue justice and the full amount of compensation available to you.
