Car accidents are unfortunately common in America...

With the high number of vehicles on the road today, auto accidents are the most common cause of accidental death and injury in the U.S. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there were 10.2 million car accidents in 2008, with 39,000 of those accidents resulting in death.

While figures are not as high as they were 30 years ago, our California car accident attorney can tell you that auto accidents remain an unfortunate fact of life.

Car accidents have a variety of causes, but are almost always caused due to the negligence or reckless conduct of the driver of one of the vehicles involved in the crash.

Distracted driving – paying more attention to a cell phone, GPS system, and so on than to the road – is a leading cause of accidents today. Other common causes are speeding, drinking alcohol, tailgating, failing to obey traffic signals, and bad weather such as heavy rain.

When you are injured in an auto accident because someone else has engaged in risky driving behavior, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Not every accident results in death or severe injury. Many car accidents result in more minor injuries. Sometimes these are scrapes and bruises, but often these are soft tissue injuries to the neck and back that an observer cannot see.

Whiplash and other spinal injuries are nonetheless very serious. To obtain full compensation for a whiplash-type injury, it is important to hire an attorney with knowledge of these types of cases.

Because car accidents are so common, state governments across America, including California, require that all drivers have auto insurance. This is good news for those injured in auto accidents, because it means that there is likely to be some form of compensation available for your injuries. Even if you are injured in a hit-and-run or if the other driver does not have insurance, you will likely have coverage through the uninsured motorist coverage of your own insurance policy.
