A Culver City Car Accident Lawyer Discusses Accident Types and Injuries

A seasoned Culver City accident attorney knows that car, truck and motorcycle accidents happen with troubling regularity in Culver City, California. These accidents have certain, almost predictable causes and tragic outcomes. We'll start with a snapshot of this city's sobering accident statistics.

Car Accidents in Culver City Take a Heavy Toll in Human Lives

Statistics compiled by the California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) showed that in 2006, four people lost their lives and 313 people were injured in Culver City car crashes. One bicyclist died and 17 were injured. Pedestrian accidents injured 28 and motorcycle accidents injured 34. Impaired drivers were blamed with three deaths and 23 injuries. In 2007, four car accidents resulted in four fatalities. In 2008, three car accidents resulted in as many deaths.

Culver City Motor Vehicle Accidents by Type and Cause

Experienced Culver City car accident attorneys know that Culver City is a dense municipality where trucks, cars, SUVs and motorcycles converge in daily heavy commuter and business traffic. Truck and motorcycle accidents typically result in serious injuries and death--far more often than in a car accident. Accidents involving trucks are typically caused by tire blowouts, brake failure, truck driver fatigue, speeding or reckless driving, load shifting, poor repair or maintenance, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Motorcycle accidents often result in a fatality or life-threatening head and neck injuries, spinal injuries and paralysis. The causes of motorcycle accidents vary but are most often the result of drivers not paying attention, speeding, reckless driving and DUI.

Low-speed rear-end collisions are the least deadly type of accident that occur in Culver City. However, rear-end crashes can result in severe soft tissue injuries as well as many kinds of back and neck injuries. The fault for these types of crashes usually lies with the driver who rear-ends the person ahead of him. But rear-end collisions can have extenuating circumstances. For example, the driver who was struck from behind could be at fault for having improperly functioning brake lights, or for making an abrupt stop, unsafe turn or sudden lane change. Rear-end collisions are typically caused by unsafe cell phone use (very common in Culver City), or when drivers reach for objects in the glove compartment, on the floor or in the back seat.

Talk to a Car Accident Lawyer If You Get Into an Accident in Culver City

The most respected car accident lawyers offer no charge, no pressure consultations. Should you retain the lawyer, fees are usually on a contingency basis (paid after your case settles).
