101 Freeway Accident Attorneys

Highway 101 is one of the longest U. S. Highways still in operation in entire United States, and the longest in California.  It hugs the coast all the way from Los Angeles, where it intersects with Interstate 5, to the Oregon State line.  With a road this long and traveling through so many different types of terrain, it is probably inevitable that there will be accidents that involve injuries and deaths along this highway.  If you have been the victim of a car collision and have suffered injuries, 101 Freeway accident lawyers can help.

Car accidents are a commonplace type of incident in California given the extreme congestion of our highways and roads.  Under California law, every accident has a cause and someone is charged with the fault in the collision.  This happens under California’s tort liability statutes, which are different than some states “no-fault” laws.  In California, you are not allowed to simply let your own insurance take care of the damage for your vehicle or pay your medical bills; if another person is involved and caused the accident and injuries, that person must pay.  Although California drivers often have uninsured motorist coverage to pay for accidents in which the at-fault driver does not have coverage, it is still the driver’s responsibility to pay for the damage and the insurance company can pursue payment from the at-fault party if they choose.

What this means is that every accident has a cause and an at-fault party.  While it may sometimes be difficult to determine the true cause of an accident, especially in cases where the collision was particularly serious and damaging to the vehicles involved, it is the responsibility of the authorities to make this determination.  Sometimes, when a lawyer who specializes in car collisions is unsatisfied with the police findings, he or she may hire an accident reconstruction expert to examine the collision evidence and make an independent determination.  It has sometimes happened that these experts’ findings have led the authorities to revise their initial opinion of an accident and make an official determination that another party was actually at fault.

If you have been involved in any type of accident, it is very important that you get sound legal advice before you attempt to negotiate with any group or individual.  You may be told the accident is your fault, but that may not be true.  You have nothing to lose by talking to 101 Freeway accident attorneys about your case; you are offered a free initial consultation appointment to get the truth about your case, so you spend no money to talk to these lawyers.  If the lawyer agrees you have a claim and you want to retain him or her, you will be asked to sign a fee agreement that allows the attorney to collect a percentage of the final settlement in place of monthly billed fees.  These two practices mean that you risk nothing by talking to or retaining an attorney to represent you in your car collision case.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru [sic] the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I cant really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as good as I could have hoped.”

“September 15, 2012, I was T-Boned by a lady at 45 miles an hour, who was busy "adjusting her GPS" instead of watching where she was going. Needless to say the next few moments were very important. After thanking God that I was not paralyzed, I made sure that after I called my wife that the second call was going to be to Bisnar & Chase. I am familiar with this fine law firm because both my wife and daughter were in a car accident in 2008 and Bisnar & Chase came to our aid.
From all the staff to Mr Bisnar himself, they came through for me as they did for my family 5 years ago. The outcome of my case was more than I expected. I have nothing but high praise for Bisnar & Chase and would highly recommend them without question.
