Thousands of car accidents happen across Southern California each year due to negligence and recklessness that should have been completely avoidable.

Why Do Car Accidents Happen?
In some contexts, calling a car accident an “accident” at all can feel misleading. After all, the vast majority of crashes happen because a motorist makes a mistake that could have been prevented. Is it really an accident if a driver chooses to act negligently behind the wheel in one way or another?
Our Orange County car accident attorneys can start your case by investigating what caused it. Ideally, we will be able to show that you did nothing wrong, so 100% of the liability belongs to the other driver. If your liability is 0%, then you can demand the full amount of compensation owed to you, rather than a reduced amount. You can bet we will fight to make sure your liability stays as low as possible.
Forms of negligence that commonly cause a car accident include:
- Drunk driving: Intoxicated drivers are some of the biggest threats to safety on the roads. After just one drink, a driver loses the ability to drive safely, defensively, and responsibly.
- Distracted driving: Using a smartphone while driving is as common these days as it is dangerous. Checking a text message while traveling at highway speeds can cause the vehicle to be driven “blindly” for 300 feet or more.
- Reckless driving: Day-to-day recklessness and negligence are also major causes of car accidents. For example, speeding, tailgating, and unsafe lane changes are all common forms of reckless driving.
We can even work on auto part defect cases for our clients. When an auto part defect causes a wreck – such as a brake failure – or worsens a client’s injuries – such as a roof that collapses in a rollover – it is only right to hold the automaker liable for the damages. Fighting an automaker is not an easy task, though, so you should only start such a claim with our attorneys at your side.
Evidence to Use in a Car Accident Case
Proving negligence in a car accident case can be a challenge. The driver who hit you will be fighting you at every step. The insurance company representing them will be against you, too. If you want to make a case that can push them back and win the money you are owed, then you should prepare a variety of useful evidence, which is where our attorneys can step in and take over.
Four types of helpful evidence in the average car accident case include:
- Dashcam footage: Let us review any footage that your dashcam captured to see if it shows what the other driver did to cause the wreck. We can also investigate to see if the other driver had a dashcam.
- Eyewitness testimonies: People who saw your crash from a third-party perspective might have had a better view of what happened and why. We can talk to eyewitnesses for you, so their accounts can help build your claim.
- Police reports: Official reports from trustworthy sources like the police or other first responders can be difficult for an insurance company to refute. Let us know if the police helped at the scene of your crash, so we can access the reports they made.
- Photographs: Did you use your smartphone to take pictures of the crash, including injuries and traffic conditions? The photographs that you took might be the best form of evidence for your argument.
See a Doctor After a Crash
It is important that you see a medical professional as soon as possible after being in a car accident. Even if you do not feel any injury after the collision, you should head to urgent care within the next hour or two. In some cases, an injury does not become apparent for a few hours or days because of its subtle nature, as well as the adrenaline rush that comes during the crash. A doctor can check for telltale signs of underlying issues like whiplash or a head or back injury.
Also, seeing a doctor on the same day as the car accident will help your claim by putting a note in your medical record. If the insurance company tries to say that you are exaggerating your injuries or falsifying the accident entirely, then your medical record will show when and why you were hurt.

Car Accident FAQ
Can I file a car accident claim if I partially caused the crash?
In California, car accident claims are subject to the pure comparative negligence rule, which states that you can demand compensation from any party that has caused you to suffer an injury, damage, or loss. Even if you were mostly liable for the crash, you can still file a claim against the other driver.
Should I talk to the other driver’s insurance company?
The other driver’s auto insurance provider will probably reach out to you a few days after the crash to try to get a recorded statement. It is not trying to help you. It wants you to say something inadvertently and pin liability on yourself. You should only speak to the other driver’s insurer if your attorney suggests it, which would be uncommon. Our lawyers can talk to all involved insurance companies on your behalf.
How do I know if a settlement offer is fair?
An initial settlement offer from the other driver’s insurance company is likely to be less than you deserve. Once you sign something, your case is over, even if you were given just a fraction of the amount owed to you. To determine the fairness of an offer, you should let our attorneys review it. Do not sign a settlement agreement without first speaking to a lawyer.
