Auto Accident Attorneys Bay Area

When you get behind the wheel, you accept the risk involved, and you accept the duty of care to drive safely and in accordance with the law that you owe everyone else on the road. While you count on other motorists to uphold the same responsibilities, their failure to do so can lead to dangerous auto accidents. If you’ve been injured by another driver’s negligence, reach out to an experienced auto accident attorney in the Bay Area for the legal help you need. 

Driver Negligence

The vast majority of auto accidents are the result of driver negligence, which comes in all of the following varieties:

  • Failure to Follow the Rules of the Road – The posted traffic signs, lights, and signals (in addition to the full scope of driving laws) are all implemented to help ensure the safe flow of traffic, and when drivers fail to take each of these into careful consideration, they make dangerous accidents far more likely. 
  • Excess Speed – Excess speed plays the most significant role in life-threatening car crashes. Motorists who drive at speeds that exceed the posted limit or who drive at speeds that are too fast in relation to the road’s condition make accidents more likely, and they increase the chances that any accidents that do happen will be fatal. 
  • Distraction – When motorists fail to focus their full attention on the task of driving safely, their distraction can cause or contribute to life-threatening car accidents. Texting behind the wheel, because it involves the driver’s hands, thoughts, and vision, is the most dangerous distraction of all. 
  • Impairment – Drivers who are impaired by either alcohol or drugs can experience cognitive, physical, and even sensory challenges that make driving safely out of the question.
  • Exhaustion – Motorists who are under the influence of too little sleep can experience impairments that are similar to drunk drivers (thus making them exceptionally dangerous motorists).
  • AggressionAggressive drivers adopt a wanton disregard for others on the road, making them some of the deadliest drivers out there. 

Your Damages

In your auto accident claim, you will seek compensation for the damages (or losses) you’ve endured as a result of the other motorist’s negligence, and these break down into the following categories:

  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Medical costs, which can be extensive and ongoing
  • Lost earnings, which can include a decrease in your ability to earn into the future
  • The physical and emotional pain and suffering you endure 

Incorporating the full scope of the damages you suffer in your car accident claim is essential to your ability to reach your fullest physical, financial, and emotional recovery.
