Most Common Causes of Car Accidents
There are countless reasons for car accidents, but in the Coachella Valley we commonly see five causes of car accidents that cause injuries:
- Driving drunk
- Being distracted while driving, specifically by a cell phone
- Poor road conditions
- Driving while tired
In 2017, there were 3,600 traffic fatalities in the state of California alone, just over 1,100 of which were caused by drunk drivers. Cell phone distractions have also become increasingly dangerous, even with laws that outlaw the use of any handheld device while driving. Accidents with trucks, motorcycles, or pedestrians can also result in catastrophic injuries.
Don't Pay the Consequences, Seek Compensation
After a Palm Springs traffic accident caused by the negligence or misconduct of another, you are entitled to financial compensation for such damages. If your injury has rendered you unable to work, your attorney can help you fight for recovery for lost wages, and loss of future wages. Because of your physical and or emotional injuries, you could also be eligible to receive money for pain, suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life. You may also be able to collect money damages for other out-of-pocket expenses or losses due to the accident. The Statute of Limitations for injury cases in California is two years, according to Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 312 et seq., so don't wait to file your claim!
