When Do You Need a Lawyer?
Many of us drive our cars every day in Orange County and elsewhere. As drivers, we share the road with other motorists, bicyclists, truckers, and pedestrians.
You can be involved in a collision with any type of road user when they, or you, or a third party fail to take the necessary care to prevent an accident.
If you are involved in an accident, seek medical attention for your injury as soon as possible.
Worry about meeting with car wreck attorneys and seeking compensation later – your health and safety should come first immediately after dangerous incidents such as motorcycle accidents, car accidents or trucks accidents by seeking immediate medical aid from an Orange County medical professional. Thereafter, contact an accident attorney.
Dangers Associated with Accidents and Why You May Need Our Assistance
When you are a pedestrian, you are in the most vulnerable category of road users.
You are not protected by a metal chassis (in the case of car accidents), a helmet, or even the luxury of being lifted off the ground like a bicyclist. If you are injured while walking, you can face steep financial damages.
After an accident with a car or motorcycle, contact our experienced car wreck attorney to start developing your claim. Depending on the cause of the accident, the negligence of the at-fault party, and the injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages.Request a Free Consultation NO COST, we don't make a dime unless you do!

Injury lawsuits are filed to recover damages due to injuries caused - through negligence, intention or recklessness – by a third party.
Car and pedestrian incidents are, in fact, some of the most commonly represented injury cases. Whether sustained through car or a pedestrian accident, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, bus accidents, bicycle accidents – or through other forms of auto accident – affected persons should seek out an experienced personal attorney to represent their case.
Many of these cases are on the rise, particularly bicycle accidents, even though bicycle accidents are potentially preventable.
Causes of Road Accidents
There are innumerable causes of car wrecks and a pedestrian accident. Our firm has represented clients who, through no fault of their own, experienced incidents caused by diverse sources.
These include human error, unsafe road conditions, a failure by some to observe speed limits, poor weather, drunk driving (DUIs), by persons who communicate via text or call while driving, to name just a few. Disciplining children is, for example, another prominent cause of auto accidents throughout California.
Our car wreck attorneys have represented many clients throughout California, helping recover damages caused through these means. The rates at which car and pedestrian incidents speak for themselves, including bicycle related accidents.
Statistical data published by the California Office of Traffic Safety enumerate the very real – and very common – risk that come with auto accidents. Statistics show that, in 2013, there were 3,000 deaths caused by auto accidents in California alone (half of which occur in Southern California).
Common Traumatic Effects of Car Wreck Injuries
Similarly, injuries caused by car and pedestrian incidents are just as diverse – limited not only to physical injury but also to long-term psychological trauma, too. The injuries that you or a loved one may sustain because of auto accidents include:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Serious and potentially life threatening
- Brain injuries
- Broken or fractured bones
When Should You File a Claim?
The variables involved in auto accidents are immense, meaning that injuries may not present immediately.
Given the intricate complexity of the human body, and the nature of many car and pedestrian incidents, it may take months for many injuries to manifest. For this reason, the timing of your auto accident lawsuit matters.
Should enough time elapse, you may not be entitled to pursue your case. That is why it’s important that you consult car wreck lawyers immediately following your accident.
Given the complexity of many car and pedestrian mishaps, you may wonder whether you have a case. Our attorneys have helped many clients throughout Orange County not only establish their case, but pursue it and recover compensation. If you were injured – or if you sustained property damage because of an accident – contact us today at (949) 629‒4349 for a free case evaluation. We will discuss your case with you and determine a viable course of legal action.
Communicating With Attorneys
Most notably, California and Arizona laws stipulate the precise timeframe during which you can file an auto accident lawsuit. Many sources of evidence, including personal recollection of events, are most organic in the immediate phase following an accident.
Communicating earlier helps attorney’s recover the evidence necessary to firmly establish your case. It is essential, then, that you consult auto lawyers in the immediate aftermath of a car wreck – irrespective of whether the accident was caused by car, motorcycle, truck or pedestrian means.
