The City of Norwalk is known for its large sugar cane fields and is frequently visited by those who live and work in Southern California. You may have been involved in a farm accident scene with a beet combine harvester truck if you drive here frequently. Industrial development rapidly occurred in the area during the second half of the twentieth century. One of the houses that Gilbert Sproul built-in 1870 is now a museum in the city park where incidentally, there have been reports of assaults, playground, and bicycle accidents with children.

In most cases, another driver’s unlawful or negligent behavior is the cause of a severe car accident. In the U.S., thousands of people die each year due to fatal collisions due to alcohol and drug consumption. Fatigue, inexperience, and failure to pay attention to the road are other factors that can lead to deadly accidents. Car accident lawyers can help even the odds of winning compensation from such scofflaws.
Experts state that the dangerous effects of distracted driving are just as severe as those caused by drugs or alcohol. Various electronic devices, such as mobile phones can cause distractions. California Vehicle Code §23123.5 bars vehicle operators from using their smartphones unless it’s placed on a hands-free device system. This is a step in the right direction, but it does not prevent many drivers from using their phones while driving or reading emails, causing a serious car accident or road fatality.
If you were injured in a car crash or an accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be able to pursue compensation from the other party. For more information about our services, please get in touch with our office at (833) LETS-SUE.
Many of the preventable car accidents that occur are caused by the actions of a distracted or intoxicated driver. However, the other party is not always at fault in every severe car accident case.
Medical bills lost wages, and other out-of-pocket costs tend to skyrocket after a terrible car accident. You need to squeeze every penny you can out of your car accident claim in an auto accident. In California, a type of legal doctrine known as comparative negligence applies to personal injury claims. This means that even if an individual is partially at fault for an accident, they can still receive compensation for their personal injuries afterward.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed, it can be very challenging to come back from the effects of the accident. A personal injury claim can help you recover the financial compensation and medical care that you need after being financially decapitated by some jerk who was engaged in distracted driving, leaving you with traumatic brain injuries and car accident damages to your vehicle.
Non-financial losses may also be recognized. For example, you may be entitled to compensation for your emotional distress mental anguish, physical pain, loss of enjoyment of life, scarring, and disfigurement.
If you lost a loved one due to an accident involving a car, you may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. This type of claim can provide you with financial compensation. Although it can’t make up for your loss, it can help provide some measure of relief.
A statute of limitations is a time limit that applies to certain types of lawsuits, such as wrongful death and personal injury suits. In California, the limitation period for these types of cases is usually two years under the California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §335.1. If you have not filed a lawsuit within two years, then you might not be eligible for monetary compensation. In some cases, the statute of limitations can be reduced or set aside, but you need a proper Norwalk car and motorcycle accident lawyer to get to the bottom of everything swiftly.
