It is estimated that there are approximately six million automobile accidents in the United States each year, with more than 40,000 of those ending in a fatality. In fact, automobile accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
The most important thing a person who has been involved in a car accident, auto accident or motor vehicle collision can do, is to immediately get medical attention for any personal injuries that were sustained in the vehicular accident and then contact a California Attorney or Folsom Car Accident Lawyer for legal advice.
The insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. The adjusters will seek statements that pin the blame on you or press for a quick settlement that may not cover your needs. In fact, the higher your damages, the more an insurer will resist a fair settlement.
An injured motorist or injured passenger in Folsom should not simply operate under the mistaken belief that the liable party and their insurance company will do the “right thing.” The clear fact of the matter is that insurance companies and their representatives are not there to protect the rights and interests of injured motorists. They are there to protect their own insured’s rights and interests, as well as to protect their own bottom line.
Auto Accidents in Folsom
Car accidents have many causes, including drunk driving, aggressive driving, excess speeding, driver drowsiness, poor road conditions, vehicle failure, stuck accelerators and negligence. Negligent driving can be a driver not paying attention due to countless different distractions including driver texting, cell phone misuse, eating, changing the radio station, reading, or even putting on cosmetics. Many times accidents are caused by a combination of these. If our experienced and aggressive Folsom personal injury lawyers represent you in your case, we will fully investigate every potential avenue of liability and hold the responsible parties fully accountable to the maximum extent.
