Vaziri Law Group is dedicated to helping California residents who have been victims of car accidents. Los Angeles and Orange County in particular have seen an ever-increasing number of car accidents due to constantly congested freeways, highways and streets. There are approximately 6 million car accidents every year in the United States, with half involving injuries and two-thirds of injuries are of a permanent nature.
Most accidents occur due to irresponsibility on the part of a driver. Distraction is a leading cause for accidents: talking on a cell phone, adjusting a radio, talking to passengers, eating, or drinking. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (even when under the legal limit), or driving while tired will impair a driver’s abilities and reaction time. Driving recklessly, such as speeding or disobeying traffic signs is also a major cause of accidents in Los Angeles and Orange County.
Consequences and Compensation
A car accident, no matter how minor, can result in injury to the driver and/or the passengers. Most injuries are sustained by the driver, followed by passengers, pedestrians and finally cyclists. Neck, spine, head and back injuries as well as fractures and broken bones are most common, at times resulting in a permanent disability or disfigurement.
The amount of compensation you may receive will depend upon the severity of your injuries and who was at fault. If you were not at fault, you may be eligible to receive compensation for a variety of losses:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Loss of current and future wages
- Compensation for mental pain and anguish
- Compensation for the loss of enjoyment of life
- Impact on your lifestyle or livelihood
If you have been the victim of a car accident, it is imperative that you retain a legal counsel that will help you get the compensation you need and deserve. At Vaziri Law Group, we will fight for your rights and future so you can move on with your life.
