Top 5 Most Common Causes of Car Accidents
Driving is a daily task most of us need to do, to ensure we take care of our professional, personal and recreational lives.
Getting from one place to another isn't always easy without a vehicle, that being said, with the large amount of others using similar forms of transportations, along the same highways, at the same time, can become hazardous.
Here is a list of the Top 5 Most Common Causes of Car Accidents:
Speeding - The problem with speeding, is that it is unsafe. Traveling at excessive speeds, especially around other drivers and pedestrians, can prove fatal in a matter of milliseconds. When speeding, it is more difficult to observe road hazards, judge a turn, or stop in the situation of a sudden and unavoidable obstacle. The speed limit is set for a reason.
Drunk Driving - Driving under the influence of substances can very often result in catastrophic accidents. Drunk driving kills too many people every day, being entirely avoidable. Innocent and vulnerable lives that are driving in nearby cars, pedestrians or people in buildings, nobody is safe from a drunk driver. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is a nonprofit organization in the United States and Canada that seeks to stop drunk driving, support those affected by drunk driving, prevent underage drinking, and strive for stricter impaired driving policy, whether that impairment is caused by alcohol or any other drug.
Distracted Driving - We all think we are able to perfectly drive and use our cell phones to talk and text, use social media, as well as other devices, music players, cameras and anything that can distract our attention from driving a heavy and dangerous vehicle. The problem is, we can't, and unfortunately it is usually too late before we realize ourselves that we can not safely multi-task while driving.
Auto Defects - Cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles and basically any other type of vehicle is human-made, which means it is not perfect. The down side of having vehicles that are not perfect means that their are going to be auto defects and recalls on certain products, auto parts and accessories that can be fatal to those driving them or nearby drivers and pedestrians. Brake failure, seatbelt malfunctions, roof crush and other defects can make your drive unsafe and in the event in an accident, possibly fatal.
Driver Error - Next to distracted driving, a driver unable to properly judge a turn in the road, distance between them and a stopped object or other vehicle can result in driver-related-accidents, caused by driver error. Inexperienced drivers, teenagers or adults getting their license for the first time or first time in a long time can be dangerous to themselves, passengers and other drivers and or pedestrians. Stay alert, stay safe, stay alive.
Time to File a Claim for Car Accidents
Auto accident victims have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages. If you or a loved one have suffered injuries in a serious vehicle accident, obtaining injury compensation for your medical bills as well as pain and suffering is practically impossible if you have passed the time limit to file a claim. You are limited to 2 years to file your car accident claim and 3 years to file a property damage claim. The benefits of hiring a lawyer will be getting the lawsuit filed in time if negotiations with the other party have gone on too long.

Protecting Your Interests
Vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. A car accident attorney is essential to help protect your interests.

If you are involved in a car accident, it is important to seek the help of qualified car accident attorneys who have practiced in California. Bisnar Chase has been representing injured plaintiffs in California for 40 years and have won over $300M for our clients.
Superior Client Representation
Too often, victims of serious injuries due to car accidents receive incorrect information and make several decisions that negatively affect the outcome of their car accident lawsuit.
Car crash victims do not have the luxury of receiving second chances; insurance companies will utilize any means to give them grounds for denying your car accident claim and are counting on you to dig your own hole. Unfortunately, this strategy is extremely effective and many auto collision victims are left with a lifetime of regret.

Auto Accident Checklist
Seek immediate medical attention and tell your physician everything you can about the accident including any pain you are having.
File a police report as soon as possible.
Get the insurance information from the other driver(s) including their driver's license number.
Get all witnesses names, addresses and telephone numbers.
Take a good amount of pictures of the accident scene. Include all cars involved and photograph all visible injuries of all victims in the auto.
Do not talk to anyone about the accident or injuries especially an insurance adjuster. Only discuss with your doctor or attorney regarding treatment.
Before you sign anything consult a qualified California car accident lawyer to avoid mistakes.
If you are disoriented, confused or having trouble remembering things, please report it. These are all symptoms of brain trauma.
Posting information on social media including pictures or making written statements that can be used against you.
Not recognizing the seriousness of your injuries right away. This can lead to additional injuries down the road.
Speaking with insurance companies from either side. The first phone call should be to your lawyer.
Not being 100% truthful with your attorneys. This can affect your case if information comes out later to the defense.
Not collecting evidence. Take pictures, obtain witness statements & file a police report.
Admitting liability. Only your lawyer should be discussing the case with you.
The Settlement Process
Your injury attorney will discuss the details of your case with you in a straightforward manner. Including the odds of having to go to trial. A good car accident legal team will have the ability to go to trial if needed. Of course, if this can be avoided while still getting you the maximum coverage then that is a good outcome. Don't let an attorney talk you down in terms of settlement if you feel its not a fair representation of your injuries and suffering.

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”
