Car Accident Lawyer

When you are hurt in a car accident you have rights under the law. The law requires that anyone who drives a vehicle, a car, motorcycle, bus or truck, to be vigilant at all times and keep their vehicle under such control that people are not injured and property is not damaged. If a driver does not do this, they are liable for damages. Damages place a monetary value on the harm done. Types of damages allowable in a personal injury matter include general damages, such as pain and suffering, special damages, such as medical bills, lost wages and property damage and punitive damages. Punitive or exemplary damages may be awarded in addition to compensatory damages only in actions in which the defendant’s conduct was egregious. To learn more about your rights and what to do if you are in a car accident, see our Know Your Rights booklet.

Car accidents can happen anywhere—on city streets, on the freeway or even in parking lots. Sometimes a car accident happens because the road is dangerous. If a car accident happens because of a dangerous road, the City or County which owns the road may be responsible. Examples of dangerous roads are:

  1. unfinished construction areas;
  2. intersections with trees covering up stop signs;
  3. roads which are designed so oncoming traffic cannot see each other;
  4. areas where streetlights or signal lights don’t work.
