San Diego Car Accidents

In 2016, the county had more than 21,000 car accidents, an increase of 5% from prior figures. Although vehicle accident figures have slowly fallen, they have gotten more violent over the years resulting in an increase of 7% in fatal crashes. 2018 statistics show that there are more than 280 deaths per 100,000 population in San Diego, almost similar to the entire state’s averages.

What Types of Injuries Can You Get from a Car Accident?

A car crash can deal with minor and major injuries to the victim, depending on the severity of the accident. The injuries also depend on where the impact occurred. For example, a rear-end collision is more likely to cause whiplash injuries, while side collisions can cause fractures.

Here are some of the most common injuries from auto accidents:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Wrongful death
  • And more.

Can You Get Financial Compensation for Your Car Accident Injuries?

California is a fault-based state where the comparative negligence law ensures that the compensation awarded depends on the degree of fault in a case like this. If you’re 50% at fault in California, then your own insurance company will have to pay 50% of the damages to the other party while you can also recover some compensation for your loss.

Car crash cases fall under personal injury, and the jury gets to decide the degree of fault of both parties before the settlement process begins.

Get More than Just Medical Bills with Our Attorneys

Typically, many lawyers will help you recover compensation for your medical bills. However, very few have the resources and experience to get maximum compensation for the damages done to you.

Oftentimes, the damages far exceed the bills that one incurs. There are other factors that one must account for to get a bigger picture of the extent of the damage. A vehicle accident can leave a victim without a job resulting in lost wages or causing emotional trauma leading to pain and suffering.

Our experienced auto accident attorney can help you get compensation for emotional trauma, bills, surgery costs, loss of enjoyment, loss of companionship, punitive damages, property damages, and more.

How Long Do You Have to File Claims in San Diego?

According to the statute of limitations, car accident victims in San Diego have two years following the auto accident to file for a personal injury car accident claim. After the two years period passes, the victim does not have the right to pursue any claims. This two-year period reduces to six months if a government agency or local municipality is the reason for the victim’s personal injury.

Although two years may seem like a long time, the claims process can take longer, resulting in delays or even cancellation of claims. Unfortunately, insurers are in the business to make money, and delaying claims or canceling them means more profit for the organization.

You Don’t Want to Deal with the Insurance Companies’

When you’re injured in an accident or lost someone to it, it may be heartbreaking and stressful to deal with the insurance company for compensation. Many are often tempted to take the first offer the insurance company gives them just to end all the interactions with the company, however, these are low settlements that won’t even cover your bills. This can put a financial strain on you affecting your recovery process after the accident. Remember, once you accept a settlement, you can’t ask for more.

Having our experienced law firm and car accident lawyers representing you is just the sort of legal support you need while you recover from your injuries. An insurer is more likely to cooperate if the accident victims bring on a reputable law firm to deal with their personal injury case.
