Common Causes of Car Accidents
Despite a concerted effort by law enforcement and other entities to increase public awareness on these issues, many drivers still engage in behaviors that impair their ability to safely drive a motor vehicle. Although the conventional wisdom blames millennials for these trends, our Chico car accident attorney's experience confirms that people from every walk of life can use poor judgment when utilizing modern technology. As a result, all of us are at a heightened risk behind the wheel.
Car accidents can be caused by the following:
- Distracted diving
- Drunk driving
- Automobile defects
- Reckless driving
- Speeding and disobeying traffic laws
What information do I need for my case?
Every accident is unique, but depending on the facts of an accident, it may be necessary to conduct witness interviews, or depose those officials who responded to the scene of the accident. A plaintiff may also need to subpoena important documents, such as a defendant’s phone records. These are only some of the things you will need to worry about as an injured claimant, and fortunately, you do not need to have all the answers yourself. A skilled Chico car accident attorney with our firm can help secure valuable information, and obtain the evidence necessary to hold the responsible parties accountable for your damages.
You should gather the following information after a car accident:
- Photos of the incident
- The name and badge number of the responding officer(s)
- The name and contact information of any nearby witnesses
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a car accident?
In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is 2 years from the date of the injury. If you try filing a case outside of this time frame, it’s very likely that the court will dismiss your case and you will have lost your opportunity to recover for any damages. Delaying the filing of a claim or case can be detrimental to your outcome, which is why you should not wait to put a skilled Chico car accident attorney on your side. Our team will work tirelessly to ensure that justice is pursued.
