What Are the Leading Causes of Car Accidents in SoCal?

A motor vehicle accident can happen for a multitude of reasons, ranging from human error to environmental factors. Here are some common examples of contributing factors:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Tailgating
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failure to signal
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Sudden stops
  • Aggressive driving
  • Poor road conditions
  • Vehicle defects
  • Failure to yield
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Improper turns
  • Inadequate following distance
  • Uber/Lyft/rideshare accidents

Who Can Be Held at Fault in a Car Accident?

In a car accident injury case, identifying the parties responsible for the wreck is a critical step in securing fair compensation for your losses. Depending on the circumstances, any of the following parties could be at fault:

  • The Other Driver – The other driver could be liable if their actions, such as speeding, drunk driving, or distracted driving, contributed to the accident.
  • The Vehicle Owner – If the driver does not own the vehicle involved in the accident, the owner could be liable, especially if they knowingly allowed an unqualified driver to operate the vehicle.
  • An Employer – If the driver was acting within the scope of their employment at the time of the accident, the employer could be vicariously liable for the employee’s actions.
  • An Auto Manufacturer – If a vehicle defect contributed to the accident, the auto manufacturer could be liable for producing a faulty product.
  • Local Authorities – Local or state government bodies could be liable if poor road conditions, inadequate signage, or other roadway issues contributed to the accident.

If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, you may also be eligible to file a wrongful death claim against the party at fault and their insurance company.

What If I Am Partially at Fault for the Car Accident?

California has a “pure comparative negligence” system, which means you can still recover compensation from another party even if you’re partly to blame for an accident. However, if you are partially at fault, the amount of compensation available to you will decrease based on your percentage of fault.

What to do if you’ve been injured in an accident:

  • Report your accident to the appropriate authorities ASAP. Whether this is the police, an employer, a store employee, or a supervisor. Get medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, don’t “shake it off.” Some injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or internal injuries, can have delayed symptoms. The sooner you can receive medical attention, the better for your health and your case.
  • Collect as much information as possible. You or someone you trust should attempt to get information from any involved parties. Important information can be the names of all parties involved and any eyewitnesses. If you were in a car crash, get the other driver’s insurance information too.
  • Take photographs. Photograph the scene, your injuries, the causing factors of the accident, and anything you think may be relevant. If you were injured on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, take photos of the dangerous condition.
  • Get copies of all relevant documents. This can include police reports, incident reports, medical documents, and communications with insurance companies.

The more information you have about your case, the stronger your claim will be. If you were injured due to another’s carelessness, contact our experienced Southern California Personal Injury lawyer to learn more about filing a claim.

Components of a Vehicular Accident Case

You must prove that the other party caused your injury to have a successful personal injury claim. First, you must show that the other party owed you a duty of care and breached it. California defines duty of care as “ A person in control of a property using reasonable care to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition for the protection of all persons whose presence is reasonably foreseeable.” This includes stopping at red lights. If a driver runs a red light, he or she has breached the duty of care. That breach put you and other motorists at risk.

Finally, you must prove that by breaching the duty of care, the other party caused your injuries. Using the previous example, you can prove causation if a driver runs a red light, hits your car, and breaks your leg. By running the red light, the driver caused an accident. The accident resulted in a broken leg. This is a straightforward example, but personal injury cases are generally much more complicated. That’s why hiring a Southern California Vehicle Accident attorney is vital.

Motorcycle Accidents in SoCal

People in passenger vehicles are surrounded by a steel frame, seat belt restraint systems, and airbags, while motorcyclists are exposed to more hazards on the open road. Even when a motorcyclist is driving safely and cautiously, an accident can occur due to no fault of the motorcyclist. Some of the most common types of motorcycle accidents involve the following:

  • Side-swipes
  • T-bone collisions
  • Accidents caused by debris in the road
  • Accidents caused by poor road conditions
    Left turn collisions
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Single motorcycle accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Blind spot accidents
  • Failure to yield accidents
  • Excessive speed accidents

Motorcyclists are at greater risk of being involved in an accident than other types of motorists. Attorney Sean Shamsi is experienced and skilled at fighting on behalf of victims of motorcycle accidents.

Uber, Lyft, and Rideshare Accidents

Recovering compensation for a ridesharing accident claim can be very complicated. Rideshare drivers are not operating their vehicles solely for their own benefit, therefore liability is not always straightforward in Uber and Lyft crash cases. It can extend beyond the rideshare driver to include other drivers, the rideshare company, vehicle manufacturers, and even governmental entities responsible for road conditions.

If you want to seek compensation for damages resulting from a rideshare accident, you will need to identify the parties that are liable for your accident. Some parties that can be held liable for rideshare accidents include:

  • The rideshare driver
  • The driver of the other vehicle 
  •  Pedestrians 
  •  Cyclists 
  •  Other motorists
  •  Government agencies 
  •  Car or car part manufacturers
