With more than 50 years of combined legal experience serving injured clients and their families, the lawyers in our personal injury practice are committed to compassionate advocacy and aggressive, meticulous representation of people injured in auto accidents.

Understanding Car Accident Injury in California

Chances are good that even a responsible driver will be involved in a traffic accident at some point during his or her driving career. On both urban and suburban roads and highways, car accidents are a significant cause of serious injury and property damage.

If you are hurt in a car, truck or motorcycle accident caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, you need competent legal support to obtain compensation for your injuries. The most common car accident injuries include the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): Car and vehicle accidents are the leading cause of TBIs. Even without impact, forces acting on the brain during a collision are great enough to move the brain within the skull, damaging and shearing delicate axons, and causing permanent damage and disability.
  • Spinal cord injury (SCI): Unchecked movement of the head and brain atop the spinal column during an accident wreaks havoc with the spinal cord when protective vertebrae are shattered and thrust into spinal tissue or nerves. Like TBIs, SCIs are devastating, catastrophic injuries that can alter life — or cause death — within seconds.
  • Lacerations and internal injuries: The skin and internal organs are frequently cut, torn and bruised during accidents, causing hemorrhaging and internal bleeding. Strained and torn musculature requires a long recovery period, and can lead to chronic disability.
  • Broken bones: Bones are frequently fractured or crushed during severe car accidents, often requiring multiple surgeries.

Despite a good driving record, you can find yourself injured in a car accident. If this happens, you can count on our law firm to provide thorough, aggressive representation to help you move forward.
