About Auto Accidents In California

Car accidents result in the death of over 700 Los Angelinos each year, and more than 80,000 reported injuries. Two-car accidents are the most commonly reported type of crash in California. The No. 1 type of vehicle accident is the rear-end collision. Broadside crashes, such as T-bone accidents, are the second most common type of accident, followed by collisions that result from a driver making an improper left-hand turn. Improper turning may involve failure to look before turning across oncoming traffic, failure to properly signal a turn, and turning where turning is illegal.

What If An Accident Involves A Ride-Share Vehicle?

Your car may have been struck by a Lyft or Uber vehicle or you may have been injured as a paying passenger in one of these cars. How might this affect your claim for compensation? All Lyft and Uber driving occurs in the drivers’ private vehicles. It often turns out that a driver only has a personal insurance policy and not a commercial one. For this reason, you may hit a stone wall when the driver’s insurer refuses to pay on a claim because a crash occurred when the driver was operating for Lyft or Uber.

Insurance complications were a problem in quite a few accidents involving ride-sharing drivers in the early days of these services. Fortunately, however, Lyft and Uber as companies now provide insurance for their drivers designed to bridge the gap between drivers’ own insurance and the demands of injury claims against Lyft and Uber drivers. The amount of compensation available may vary, depending on where the driver was in the process of getting and providing rides at the time of a crash.

For best results getting through the red tape and complex claims processes after a ride-share-related accident in the Los Angeles area, work with attorney Kenechi R. Agu, who is skilled in technology and analysis. His in-depth knowledge of the most efficient, effective legal pathways to relief for the injured can be an asset in your case.

Truck Accidents: Often Serious Or Deadly

People injured in truck accidents are most often occupants of passenger vehicles struck by trucks. Others are motorcyclists, bicyclists and others on the road. Injuries caused by truck accidents tend to be serious or catastrophic. The weight and momentum of a truck are often a deadly combination in collisions with other vehicles.

Discovering the cause of a truck accident can make a significant difference in the outcome of a claim brought by an injured person or surviving family members. Was the truck driver fatigued? Were the truck’s safety features not working as they should? Was the truck’s load imbalanced? An investigation into these and other potential causes is essential as you pursue maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.
