Car accidents are an unfortunate reality of life. They happen everywhere, including Visalia. No matter how skilled of a driver you are, it is impossible to control the actions of other motorists. After car accidents occur, serious injuries are sometimes sustained, and lives may be lost. 

Motorists are not the only ones that are at risk on the roads. Motorists share the road with bicyclists and pedestrians. No matter if you are in a car, on a motorcycle, bicycle, or on foot, it is vital that you act carefully and protect yourself while you are on the road. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, traffic accidents and fatalities across California rose by 8 percent in the first half of 2015. 

The Institute reports that this trend will increase because of the rise of distracted driving. Cell phone use is a major contributor to traffic accidents across the state. According to the Institute for Highway Safety, 3,602 people died from the injuries sustained in traffic accidents in 2017. Another 300,000 Californians were injured. 

This trend is expected to continue. With the rise of traffic fatalities and injuries because of traffic accidents, there will be an increase in the number of personal injury and wrongful death claims filed. Our reputable law firm has experienced Visalia car accident lawyers. We have decades of experience helping injury victims recover the compensation that they need to recover in peace.

What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

The moments after a car accident are some of the scariest. You should seek medical attention if you need it, check on your passengers, and talk to the other driver and their passengers if possible. After you ensure that you are safe, call an attorney. What you do not do after an accident is just as important as what you do in the aftermath of a car accident.

One thing that you should never do after an accident is to speak to the other driver’s insurance company without the advice of counsel. It is the job of insurance companies to protect the company’s bottom line. That goal is often achieved at the expense of injured persons. If you are hurt in a car accident, call us right away. 

We know the strategies to use to ensure you have the money you need to replace your lost wages, pay your medical bills, and recover from emotional damage. Call the Visalia car accident lawyers at our firm at (888) 488-1391 to speak about the next steps for your case. In addition to not speaking to an insurance company before talking to a lawyer, you should also avoid making these mistakes:

  • Hiring an inexperienced attorney
  • Posting about the car crash on social media – After an accident, you must be aware of what you say. Any inconsistent statement that you make about the accident can devastate your claim.
  • Failing to inform your lawyer that you have a past injury to the same area of your body – It is important that your attorney knows all the facts, even the bad facts.
  • Failing to follow your doctor’s recommendations – If your doctor gives you an instruction, follow it. If your primary doctor tells you to make an appointment with a specialist, make sure to make the appointment as soon as possible.
  • Delaying getting medical attention for more than 48 hours after the accident – An accident victim should get medical care immediately.

These mistakes should always be avoided. If you do not avoid these common pitfalls, your valid personal injury case may be damaged. An experienced Visalia accident attorney can work for you. Focus on your recovery and let the attorneys at our trusted law firm do the following on your behalf: 

  • Gather evidence
  • Build your case and prove that the other party is liable for your injuries
  • Thoroughly investigate your case
  • Negotiate with the insurance company and defense attorneys
  • Make a case for compensation for your damages
  • Take your case to trial and present it in front of the judge or jury

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law. What made my experience excellent was (i.e. head attorney being accessible to talk to and he answered all my questions and concerns, sensitive and thorough personel who completed in home intake & follow up process, being connected immediately to quality Physicians who addressed my injuries and recovery process, clear contract-read throughly to ensure its something you can commit to). Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra

What Are Some Common Injuries in Visalia Car Accidents?

1
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol

Impaired driving is a leading cause of traffic accidents across California. Impaired driving includes driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher or driving after using drugs. Although some drugs like marijuana and alcohol are legal in California, using these substances before driving is illegal because they alter your depth perception, coordination, and judgment, making driving unsafe. 

If you have been using substances, always use a ridesharing service. Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is not worth it. 

2
Driving Too Fast for Traffic or Weather Conditions

It is important to react to the weather as well as traffic while driving. A driver is required to act reasonably while on the road. Reasonableness means that the driver must always be in control of the vehicle regardless of the weather conditions.  

3
Drowsy or Fatigued Driving

Fatigued driving is dangerous. Fatigued drivers cause accidents on California roads every day. Driving while you are too tired lowers your reaction time, alters your judgment, and overall, makes the roads unsafe for everyone. 

If you have been in an accident caused by a fatigued driver, our attorneys can help you. Call us today at (888) 488-1391 today to schedule a free consultation.  

4
Following Too Closely

All drivers must keep a proper amount of space between their car and the car in front of them. Following too closely is the cause of around 98 percent of all rear-end accidents that happen on California roads each year. If you have been in a rear-end accident that was caused by a driver that was following too closely, Contact us as soon as possible. We are here to help you. 

5
Disobeying Traffic Lights or Traffic Signs

It is the responsibility of drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians to obey traffic lights and signals. If we all obey traffic lights and signals, the roads will be a safer place for us all. The types of car accidents that typically happen if a driver fails to follow a traffic light or traffic signal are broadside impact accidents. Broadside accidents can cause the car that is hit to be pushed in front of another car and may also cause a rollover accident. 

6
Speeding

The purpose of a speed limit is to give drivers enough time to stop or slow down for other vehicles to avoid hazards on the road. A driver should also obey the speed limit because the higher a driver is moving at the time of an accident, the more likely the accident will have devastating effects when they impact another car. 

If you have been in an accident with a driver that was speeding, call the Visalia accident attorneys at Arash Law led by Arash Khorsandi today. We are excited to help you get your life back. Call us at (888) 488-1391 to schedule a free consultation. 

7
Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is the number one contributor to car accidents. Distracted driving can take many forms. Distracted driving may include texting while driving, talking on a cell phone while driving, talking to passengers, using the GPS, eating, personal grooming, and any other task that takes the driver’s attention off the task of driving. Distracted driving is unsafe. All drivers should focus on the road. 

No two personal injury claims are the same, and therefore there is no way to predict how an accident victim will be harmed after an accident. It is important that you get medical attention right away if you have been hurt after an accident. It is important never to refuse medical treatment after a car accident. If you do refuse medical treatment after a car accident, you may lose credibility with an insurance company if you wish to pursue compensation. 

At the scene, call 911 and tell them that you are injured. Be sure to tell the 911 dispatcher that you want paramedics on the scene. The paramedics will document your complaints and injuries and take you to the hospital.Some common types of injuries sustained after a car accident are: 

  • Soft tissue injuries – Soft tissue injuries are injuries to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. A soft tissue injury causes severe pain and may cause the range of motion to be limited.
  • Various types of bone fractures – Bone fractures may require one or more surgeries to help the accident victim fully recover.
  • Impact to the lower back that affects the legs and hips 
  • Some neck injuries – A car accident can cause spinal cord injury, sprains, strains, and disc damage.
  • Traumatic brain injuries – Traumatic brain injuries may include skull fractures, brain bleeding, and concussions.

If you have been hurt in a car accident, call the experienced attorneys at our reputable law firm. We have decades of experience helping clients get the compensation that they deserve. We have collected over $500 million in compensation for those that need it the most. Call us today at (888) 488-1391 or visit us online to schedule a free consultation.
