There are regularly over 3,000 car accident fatalities and hundreds of thousands of car accident injuries on our California roads every year. The highest concentration of car accident fatalities occur in Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Orange Counties. Car accident injuries can be minimal to severe including death. Some types of car accidents are more likely to cause severe injuries and death than other types. Practicing safe driving and defensive driving can help to avoid car accidents, but since you have no control over the other drivers on the road and cannot anticipate every move they make, there are some accidents that cannot be avoided.
As mentioned above, there are several types of common car accident scenarios and some of them are more likely to cause severe injuries than others. See below for descriptions of different types of car accidents.
Common causes of car accidents include distracted driving, driving under the influence, speeding, weather conditions, night driving, and reckless driving. Car accident experts at The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno have experience with all types of car accidents. We expertly conduct investigations to discover the causes of car accidents and gather the evidence necessary to prove the defendant’s fault.
Accident victims may recover damages that include medical bills, pain and suffering, property damage, disfigurement and disability, lost wages, and loss of future earnings. In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, contact our El Cajon car accident attorney, Eugene G. Bruno, to schedule a consultation.
