Personal injury lawsuits are filed to recover damages due to injuries caused - through negligence, intention or recklessness – by a third party. Car and pedestrian accidents are, in fact, some of the most commonly represented personal injury cases. Whether sustained through car and pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, bus accidents, bicycle accidents – or through other forms of auto accident – affected persons should seek out an experienced personal injury attorney to represent their case. Many of these cases are on the rise, particularly bicycle accidents, even though bicycle accidents are highly preventable.
There are innumerable causes of car and pedestrian accidents. Our firm has represented clients who, through no fault of their own, experienced incidents caused by diverse sources as 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 personal injury lawyers have represented many clients throughout Orange County, helping recover damages caused through these means. The rates at which car and pedestrian accidents 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).
Similarly, injuries caused by car and pedestrian accidents 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, whiplash, broken or fractured bones
Serious and potentially life threatening brain injuries
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 accidents, 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 an attorney immediately following your accident.
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 a personal injury lawyer in the immediate aftermath of an auto accident – irrespective of whether the accident was caused by car, motorcycle, truck or pedestrian means.
