Bicycle, Car, Motorcycle, Truck and Pedestrian Accidents
There are a number of factors which contribute to the risk of a traffic collision. They include the vehicle design, speed, the design of the road, road conditions, the skill of the driver, the condition of the car, motorcycle or truck, a driver’s impairment, and the behavior of the driver such as whether the driver was texting, changing the radio station or dealing with kids or a dog.
Research has shown that the risk of a crash increases both for drivers who travel slower than the average speed as well as for drivers who travel higher than the average speed.
However, the risk of a car collision and injury rises exponentially as the driver travels at higher and higher speeds as does the severity of injury and lethality.
Most crashes related to speed involve drivers speeding too fast for conditions.
Driver error, intoxication and other human factors contribute in whole or in part to 93% of all crashes.
A survey of British car drivers found that most thought they were better drivers than average drivers and that after being in a crash, nearly all did not believe themselves to be at fault.
While younger drivers have good reaction times, young male drivers have a disproportionately higher number of accidents. While older drivers have slower reaction times, they tend to drive less and more cautiously.
Teens and early twenty-aged drivers have the highest incidence of accidents and fatalities. The highest accident incidence rate occurs within the first year of licensed driving.
A location that may not look dangerous may have a high crash frequency while drivers who perceive a location to be hazardous may take more care.
In rollover accidents, 83% of ejections during the rollover are fatal when the driver does not wear a seat belt, compared to 25% when they do.
Motorcyclists are more than twice as likely to suffer severe injuries after a collision than drivers of cars.
Car Accidents and Insurance Companies
If you’ve been injured in any type of car accident, now is the time to retain a Palm Springs car accident attorney before an insurance company tries to take advantage of your situation.
If you’ve lost a loved one in a wrongful death accident with fatalities, the calculation of the damages you’re entitled to for your loss are in many cases complex beyond belief and a Palm Springs wrongful death attorney is essential.
If you’ve been seriously injured in your car accident, we can refer you to medical providers who will treat you on a lien basis where they wait to be paid until your case is settled. As your Palm Springs car accident attorneys, we’ll advise you how to get paid for the damage to your auto or other motor vehicle and be reimbursed for a car rental. We may even be able to obtain your traffic collision report online from some police departments.
At the conclusion of your accident case after we’ve negotiated a settlement that provides the compensation you deserve for your injuries, your pain and suffering, wage loss and out of pocket expenses, our car accident lawyers will make a concerted effort to get your medical bills reduced in order to put more money in your pocket when all is said and done.
Although you have the choice to try to handle your auto accident or other personal injury by yourself, should you decide to do so, the insurance company in question will view your case in an entirely different light. Without any need to offer a settlement that includes a sufficient amount in pain and suffering for attorney’s fees, to an insurance company, your case will have only a nuisance value.
Realizing you’re unrepresented by an experienced Palm Springs car accident attorney, they’ll offer you only a paltry amount. Their meager offer will either include nothing or only a nominal amount for your pain and suffering. And their offer is likely to include nothing for your future medical treatment, your wage loss, your out of pocket expenses or the loss of use of your car while it was being repaired or totaled.
Call Palm Springs Car Accident Lawyer Sebastian Gibson To Obtain Your Personal Injury Settlement
An insurance company won’t refer you to medical providers for treatment, won’t pay for your medical expenses up front, and in many cases won’t even tell you what you’re entitled to in the way of car rental expenses or for the loss of use of your car. And, unlike an experienced Palm Springs personal injury attorney, they won’t seek reductions of medical expenses you owe after your treatment or amounts you may owe to your health insurance company.
We can advise you how to get the most for the damage to your car, truck or motorcycle, what you’re entitled to in the way of car rental expenses or the loss of use of your vehicle should you decide not to rent a replacement vehicle and our law firm won’t take a penny from your property damage settlement.
In fact, you pay us nothing unless we’re successful in obtaining a personal injury settlement or a mediation, arbitration or judicial award in your case. Personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis by our office, which means we advance the costs of your case for such things as obtaining the police report and medical records and we are reimbursed for those costs only at the conclusion of your case and only if we’re successful in getting you a settlement or award for your damages.
Retaining an experienced Palm Springs car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Sebastian Gibson is one of the best things you can do for yourself after a car accident in Palm Springs.
