Car Accident Lawyer Oakland

Oakland has more than enough traffic, as we all need to get to different places each day. With all that congested traffic come plenty of car accidents. A car accident is a terrifying, dangerous event that can alter your life in profound ways – in just the blink of an eye. Being injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence puts you in an especially difficult position, and you need a dedicated car accident lawyer in Oakland on your side. 

The Other Driver

The bulk of all the car accidents stem from driver negligence, which can take far too many dangerous forms, including:

  • Drivers who fail to drive by the rules and flaunt the laws of the road
  • Drivers who allow other activities to distract them from the singularly important job of driving safely (texting is the deadliest distraction of them all) 
  • Drivers who are too exhausted to drive safely (drowsy drivers can experience many of the same impairments that drunk drivers do)
  • Drivers who take their aggression out behind the wheel
  • Drivers who speed excessively
  • Drivers who make the terrible decision to drive while impaired by alcohol and/or drug

If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured, it’s time to consult with a dedicated car accident attorney. 

Your Car Accident Claim

Your car accident claim will address the damages – or losses – you’ve suffered as a result of the other driver’s negligence. The law addresses all of the following forms of loss (each of which can be considerable):

  • Your medical expenses, which can begin with emergency care and extend to surgery, rehabilitation, and beyond
  • Your lost earnings, which can evolve into ongoing losses that include an altered career trajectory
  • Your physical and emotional pain and suffering, which can be one of the most challenging consequences of all

Ensuring that your full array of damages is well represented in your car accident claim is paramount. 

Protect Your Health and Your Claim

Although your car accident claim is unique to you and the circumstances involved, there are several things all car accident victims can do to help protect their health and their claims, including:

  • Obtain the medical care you need as soon after the accident as possible. The fact is that some very serious injuries can be symptom-free until they develop into far more serious health concerns.
  • Follow your doctor’s advice and instructions carefully.
  • Consult with a knowledgeable car accident attorney as soon after the accident as possible and work closely with him or her throughout. 
  • Say goodbye to Facebook and other social media platforms until your claim has been resolved (the insurance company is watching, and there is no reason to provide them with raw material in any form).
