Have you been involved in a car accident? If so, you are one of the millions of people every year who do so. Unfortunately, all too often, those people end up accepting the first offer the insurance company makes them without considering if it is fair or if it is enough. This is why we strongly suggest that you at least consult with a personal injury attorney before you accept any offer. You can do so by contacting Law Offices of Michael A. Kahn at (310) 209-1600.
Are You Surprised to Learn That It is More Dangerous to Drive in California Today Than it Was a Decade Ago?
With all the safety additions and technology options on the market, it is easy to assume that car accidents would be on the decline and that the seriousness of those accidents that did occur would be less as well. This is not the way it has worked out. In fact, fatal traffic accidents in California have gone up about 1% a year since 2015. Many people blame this rise largely on the increase in distracted driving.
We Handle All Types of Car Accident Injury Cases
We have worked on just about any type of motor vehicle accident claim you can think of. For example, we have handled cases that involved dangerous and/or poorly designed roads, drivers who were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident, distracted drivers, and driver error such as not paying attention or speeding.
We can handle your case no matter how simple or complex it is. Our experience extends to catastrophic injury cases, single vehicle and multiple vehicle accidents, under- and uninsured motorist claims, drunk driving accidents, rideshare accidents (including Uber and Lyft), and wrongful death cases. We have even handled cases in which the accident was caused or affected by product liability involving parts of the vehicle.
Do You Know What to Do After a Car Accident?
We have worked with clients on all types of cases and often find that they do not know what to do after an accident. The first thing to do is to ensure that everyone is safe. If there are any injuries, call for an ambulance and go in it if you are injured. This not only ensures you are safe but also helps to prove your claim after the fact.
Once you are safe, it is time to gather information. Get names and numbers of all involved parties as well as any eyewitnesses. Write down everything you remember. Do not assume that you will remember months from now. Then contact Law Offices of Michael A. Kahn at (310) 209-1600 to request a free legal consultation.
