Foster City Personal Injury Attorneys

Being injured as a result of someone else’s negligence is never easy, and the journey toward recovery can be long and arduous. If you’ve been in an accident and believe someone else was at fault, you need the compensation to which you are entitled in order to reach your optimal recovery, and the best path forward is to work closely with an experienced Foster City personal injury attorney. 

Accidents that Lead to Personal Injury Claims

While nearly any kind of accident can lead to a personal injury claim, there are certain accidents that are particularly common in injury cases, including:

  • Pedestrian Accidents – When you head out on foot, you are the most vulnerable to the impact of a traffic accident because absolutely nothing comes between you and that impact. The injuries associated with pedestrian accidents are typically very serious.
  • Bike Accidents – Biking is a great way to get around and enjoy our beautiful city, but bike accidents can be highly dangerous. When you’re on your bike, you often join the flow of traffic, but you have only your helmet to protect you from the impact of an accident with a vehicle that is both much larger and much heavier.
  • Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is convenient and enjoyable for many people. There is also, however, a dangerous downside. Motorcycle accidents are among the deadliest on our roadways.
  • Truck Accidents – The massive size and weight of the semi-trucks that roam our roadways make truck accidents extremely dangerous and terrifying. The size differential alone leaves the other motorists involved vulnerable to severe injuries. 
  • Car Accidents – As traffic continues to increase, so too do car accidents. Car accidents happen regularly, and they can cause serious injuries.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents – When you head out to do your grocery shopping, to pick up a takeout meal, or to do just about anything else, the last thing you expect is to be injured in the process. The fact is, however, that business and property owners who fail to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition leave those who legally enter these premises extremely vulnerable to slip and fall accidents and injuries.

 Common Causes of Traffic Accidents

Personal injury claims are often based on traffic accidents, and these accidents are often caused by the following kinds of negligence:

  • Distraction – Smartphones are an especially common distraction that leads to crashes.
  • Impairment – Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs put everyone at risk.
  • Exhaustion – Driving while drowsy is dangerous but, unfortunately, not uncommon.
  • Aggression – Aggressive drivers often engage in a combination of risky activities, such as tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, speeding excessively, honking and gesturing rudely, and more.
