Long Beach Car Accident Lawyer
Statistics reveal that car accidents accounted for as many as 34,080 fatalities in the United States in 2012, witnessing a 4.35% rise from the previous year.
Car accidents are frequently the result of many factors all coming in to play at once, including:
- Speed of the vehicle
- Driver distraction
- Driver impairment, including alcohol or drugs
- Faulty manufacturing of vehicle parts
However, driver negligence typically plays a role in car accidents in some way or another. If a reasonable person in the same situation could have avoided the accident, the actions of the driver at fault may be considered careless or negligent.
In order to establish that a person was not driving with reasonable care and caution, it must be proven that there was:
- A legal duty to use care
- A violation of that duty
- A direct relationship between the accident and the injury
If you or someone you love have been involved in a car accident, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. A claim may be able to reimburse you for expenses relating to the accident, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
