What Causes Car Accidents in Los Angeles?
Car accidents are most frequently caused by negligent driving behavior, like distracted driving or speeding. There are also other factors that may lead to serious collisions, such as heavy weather or defective auto parts. A key part of our legal counsel as Culver City car accident lawyers is identifying the primary cause of a crash and therefore what party should be held accountable.
We can handle car accident cases involving such causes as:
- Distracted driving (texting while driving, talking on the phone, adjusting the radio, etc.)
- Drunk driving (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs)
- Speeding (driving too fast for current conditions or in violation of speed limits)
- Dangerous roads (poorly designed or maintained roadways)
- Defective auto parts (tire blowouts, faulty braking or steering systems, auto recalls, etc.)
- Traffic violations (running a red light, racing on public roadways, etc.)
California Statute of Limitations for Injury Claims
In the state of California, injury claims must be settled within 2 years of the accident, according to California Code § 335.1. This means you must act fairly quickly if you want to get fair compensation to fully recover from your injuries. After 2 years, you lose the legal right to pursue compensation, even if you miss the deadline by a single day. If you're seriously injured, trying to negotiate with insurance companies may be the last thing you want to do. Our Culver City car accident attorneys will handle this for you so you can focus on recovering.
