Recovering From Your Westminster Auto Collision
Recoveries that you can earn from a car wreck will be based on the number of damages that took place during the auto collision. Not only can your car accident attorney fight for your physical injuries but they can also fight for any mental anguish or emotional pain and suffering.
Other injuries or expenses you may be compensated for after a car accident are:
- Medical bills: Emergency room and doctor visits can be costly and before you know it bills can pile up. As a car accident victim, you are entitled to medical care, treatment and above all else compensation for those services. Documentation of visits with medical professionals will aid your car accident lawyer when fighting your case.
- Lost wages: Suffering from an injury can take a toll not only on you and your loved ones but also on your finances. For example, the average time to recover from a broken arm is about six weeks. This does not include rehab for an injury. Rehabilitation for injuries can take months. Pay stubs presented to the court can prove and give an estimated amount of time and money lost from your vehicle collision.
- Pain and suffering: To properly evaluate the pain and suffering damages, experts usually examine the personal and psychological aftermath a person is facing after a crash. An experienced Westminster auto accident attorney knows that a motor vehicle collision can devastate a person’s quality of life. Those who are scarred or disfigured in an auto accident can often suffer severe emotional pain. This can cause embarrassment, humiliation, loss of companionship or friendship, loss of consortium (romantic affection), loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of guidance, tutelage and moral upbringing. Although it’s not easy to put a price on these damages, keeping a record of them will aid a jury in understanding the need for compensation.
Pain and Suffering Isn't Always Easy to Define
A wise Westminster car accident lawyer knows that car accident victims can usually document the economic damages they sustained in a car collision. “The medical bills, car repairs, lost income and other ‘hard’ expenses come in fast and furious after a car accident,” notes attorney, John Bisnar. “But it’s the pain and suffering damages that many car crash victims find difficult to document.”
This is understandable, since real guidelines for pain and suffering damages aren’t exactly something you can look up in a book–like a Blue Book for car values. It’s no wonder pain and suffering awards vary so widely. As a car accident victim, you must make a convincing argument, backed up by documents that reveal the level and extend of your pain and suffering.
Car Crashes in Westminster
Westminster, California is home to around 90,000 people as of 2015. With such a heavy population there is bound to be countless numbers of car accidents. Twelve fatal car accidents have occurred in the city of Westminster. In recent years it has exceeded California’s total average of car accidents.
Data has shown that the number one cause of car accidents is drunk driving. Drunk driving has killed over 10,000 people. Driving under the influence, in later years does not only involve alcohol though. According to the Center of Disease Control, 25% percent of DUI charges were due to marijuana usage.
DUI's are All Too Common in Westminster
Westminster is one of the most populated cities in Southern California and just like many metropolitans is filled with sports bars and nightclubs. Unfortunately, when the bars let out and the big game is over, many drivers hit the streets with their driving skills impaired by alcohol. And the result is often a tragic car accident.
The California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) reported that in one year, three fatalities and 50 injuries occurred due to alcohol-related auto collisions in Westminster. In Orange County, an estimated 13,000 DUI arrests take place every year.
“The city of Westminster needs to be proactive in its efforts to control DUIs,” noted car accident attorney John Bisnar. “Youthful drivers who get behind the wheel after spending hours in a sports bar, need to hand the keys to a designated driver to avoid a causing a serious car accident.”
Taking a tough stand against DUIs, Westminster frequently sets up DUI checkpoints along accident-prone roads throughout the city.
Checkpoints can often be found along:
- Beach Blvd. at Westminster Blvd.
- Bolsa Ave. near the Westminster Mall
- Goldenwest St. between McFadden Ave.
- Hazard Ave.
Westminster Police are required to post details of future DUI checkpoints. Typically, they provide several warnings–listed in The LA Times (Orange County Edition) or the Orange County Register.
