Auto Accident Attorneys East Bay

Auto accidents are extremely dangerous events that leave their victims especially vulnerable. Another driver’s negligence can leave you facing growing medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering with no recourse other than filing a car accident claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier. Fortunately, an experienced East Bay auto accident attorney can skillfully negotiate for the compensation you need to reach your fullest recovery – while you get down to the important work of regaining your health and well-being.

Forms of Driver Negligence

All too often, car accidents are caused by driver negligence, which can go beyond failing to adhere to the safety rules of the road. Consider the following:

  • Excess Speed  – When a motorist chooses to drive faster than conditions safely allow, he or she not only makes an accident more likely but also increases the odds that the accident will be fatal. 
  • Distraction – When motorists allow distractions, such as their phones, to interfere with the attention they pay to driving safely, dangerous accidents are often the result.
  • Impairments – Alcohol and drugs impair drivers in exceptionally dangerous ways. 
  • Exhaustion – Drowsy divers often fail to recognize the negative role that too little sleep can play in their ability to drive safely
  • Aggression – Aggressive drivers recklessly ignore the rules of safe driving, and as a result, are some of the most dangerous drivers out there. 

The Damages You’re Facing

 If another driver’s negligence causes you to be injured in a car accident, the damages you’re facing can be considerable and are likely to fall into the following categories:

  • Property damage to your auto
  • Medical expenses that begin with emergency care and extend well beyond
  • The lost earnings associated with lost hours on the job
  • Pain and suffering

Ensuring that your auto accident claim carefully addresses each form of damage you’ve been forced to endure is important to your recovery process. 

Protecting Your Claim

Every auto accident claim is utterly unique to the accident itself and to the circumstances involved, but there are some basic first steps you can take to help you protect your claim and your ability to recover from the outset:

  • Seek the immediate medical attention that you need and carefully follow through with your doctor’s instructions and medical advice
  • Consult with a dedicated auto accident attorney as soon after the accident as possible
  • Allow your skilled auto accident attorney to speak for you (you are not required to provide the insurance company with a formal statement, and it is a good idea that you don’t) 
  • Take a social media holiday while your case is pending (the insurance company is waiting for you to post something it can twist to its own meaning)
