Were you injured in a car accident in California, caused by someone else?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there were more than 10 million vehicle accidents in 2009, with over 2 million people injured in those accidents. These accidents can cause serious injuries and increase your levels of stress, anxiety and emotional distress.
Now You’re Wondering How To:
- Fix your car
- Pay for your medical bills
- Make up for missed days at work
- Get your life back together
Most vehicle accidents are caused by the carelessness of others. This is called negligence. Most drivers are really careful. You drive thousands of miles each year. You make sure your children are safely secure, you obey the traffic laws and you make sure all of your safety equipment (such as brakes and seat belts) are fully functional.
But no matter how safe you try to be, you are still at risk because other drivers may still hit you or otherwise cause an accident, injuring you. You can’t always prevent an accident, but you can work towards receiving compensation to make up for the pain, suffering and inconvenience you experienced.
