Monterey Car Accident Attorney
Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury and death in America.
If you have been injured in a traffic collision caused by the negligent
driving of another party or unsafe roadway condition, you may be entitled
to recover monetary compensation through a
personal injury claim. If a family member was killed in a traffic accident caused by the
negligent or reckless driving of another or a roadway condition, your
family is entitled to recover in a wrongful death claim.
Car Accidents and Injuries
The basic types of car accidents are rollovers, head-on collisions, road
departures, head on, broadside and rear-end collisions. The physical,
emotional and financial repercussions resulting from car accidents can
greatly affect many aspects of your life. Physical injuries can result
in expensive medical bills for emergency care, follow up medical treatment,
including medication and therapy, and even surgery. These injuries can
also result in a marked impact on the victim's ability to perform
routine daily activities and live a high quality life. Lost wages from
the inability to work also become a factor in many cases. Compensation
should include lost income and future wage loss or loss of ability to work.
According to a 1985 study on road traffic crashes, over 50% of car accidents
are directly caused by driver error. There are also a large percentage
of accidents that occur due to roadway factors. In either case, there
is a large chance that you were not at fault for the car accident you
were involved in, and our firm is capable of assessing your situation
and determining liability. Some common causes of traffic collisions include:
- Distracted drivers
- Unsafe speeds or reckless driving
Driver impairment (including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs)
- Physical impairments
- Uneducated or unlicensed drivers
It is important to note that there are many other factors in personal injury
car accidents. Whether the other driver was uninsured, driving under the
influence of alcohol or drugs, or if a hit and run offense was committed,
these are factors that can affect the outcome of cases. At Spiering, Swartz
& Kennedy we ensure that we handle each case according to its unique
facts in a timely and competent manner in order to bring about a successful
