California Car, Motorcycle, and Pedestrian Accidents

California Motor Vehicle Crash Law Firm Helps Victims Recover Compensation

With a population of approximately 39.2 million individuals according to the United States Census Bureau, it should come as no surprise that a considerable number of car crashes, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian injury crashes, and other types of motor vehicle accidents occur in California every single day.  According to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), in 2013:

  • A total of 3,104 people were killed in 2,853 motor vehicle crashes. This means that, on average, there were over 200 fatal collisions every single month and nearly ten people died every day in motor vehicle crashes throughout the state;
  • In all, 223,128 people were injured in 156,909 motor vehicle collisions. Again, this number shows that over 400 collisions occurred every day, causing over 600 people to experience some type of injury; and
  • These numbers reflect statistics from 2013 (the most recent year for which statistics are available) and are lower than they have been in previous years.

Given the prevalence of motor vehicle collisions in California, it is only a matter of time before you or a loved one find yourself injured in a car wreck or other motor vehicle crash that is caused by the careless actions of another person. When this occurs, Harrison | Kristopher, LLP is ready and able to spring into action on your behalf and help you obtain the compensation you need to put your life back on track.

Types of Motor Vehicle Collisions With Which Harrison | Kristopher Can Help

Harrison | Kristopher has considerable experience assisting numerous clients recover monetary damages following their motor vehicle crashes, no matter the specific type of crash in which they are injured. We can help you and your family recover monetary damages for your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses if you have been injured.

  • Car crashes: Rear-end collisions and T-collisions are just two of the more common types of car crashes that occur in California. Whether you and your loved ones suffer minor injuries or catastrophic injuries that leave you with permanent harm will depend on a number of factors such as the speed and weight of the various vehicles involved, whether you are wearing your safety belt, and what type of protective/safety equipment your vehicle has installed.
  • Motorcycle wrecks: Motorcycles are a fast and inexpensive way to get from Point A to Point B in California while enjoying California’s sun. The drawback to this method of transportation is that when you are riding a motorcycle and you collide or crash with another vehicle, you can easily find yourself beset with severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, neck and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and amputations.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Even though cities across the United States have gone to great lengths to make walkways and streets safer for pedestrians through the use of signage, signals, and designated paths, collisions between pedestrians and cars still occur – typically because a driver is distracted by a cellphone or text message, is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or is simply in a hurry. When a pedestrian and car collide, the pedestrian will often suffer serious injuries even if the vehicle itself suffers little or no damage.

California Motor Vehicle Collision Frequently Asked Questions

It is common for victims of motor vehicle crashes to have many questions about their rights and the recovery process. Some of the more frequently asked questions about California car wrecks include:

  • What compensation am I entitled to for my injuries?  California law allows motor vehicle accident victims whose injuries are caused by another’s careless or reckless behavior to recover financial compensation for their expenses, losses, and injuries attributable to the other person’s behavior. Medical bills, lost wages, lost future earnings, and pain and suffering are often available for victims.
  • How long do I have to file a motor vehicle injury lawsuit?  With few exceptions, you must file your lawsuit seeking damages within two years of the date of your accident. This is due to California’s personal injury statute of limitations – if you wait until the statute of limitations has passed before filing your lawsuit, you may find that your suit will be dismissed and you will not receive any compensation. Therefore, you have little time to delay in exercising your legal rights after a crash.
  • How long do I have to wait before I receive compensation?  The length of time it takes your car wreck lawsuit to be resolved or settled will depend on a number of factors, including the complexity of the facts and circumstances surrounding the crash, the need for expert witness testimony and testing, whether your case settles or proceeds to trial, and the extent of your injuries and losses. Some suits may be resolved in a matter of months, while others may take a year or more before your case is concluded and you receive your damages award.
