As not only one of the top tourist destinations in the country (33 million visitors annually), but one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., San Diego continues to emerge as a major urban area, with the corresponding increase in vehicles on the road.

Cars, trucks and motorcycles take to the streets of San Diego so often because the weather is usually ideal for a nice ride, or to get to a nearby beach or tourist site. The traffic in San Diego has not reached the epic proportions of its northern neighbor L.A., but it can get very compacted at rush hours and on weekend festival days.

Those jams can easily lead to accidents, as people attempt to break free from bunches of vehicles stacked up on Martin Luther King Freeway westbound or the San Diego Freeway northbound. Inside the city, Market Street and the Gaslamp Quarter both see a heavy volume of traffic.

These crowded roadways, combined with numerous modes of public transport, such as buses, trains and the famous trolley, all create conditions that can easily lead to collisions. If you’ve been involved in a vehicle accident in San Diego County and the surrounding areas, don’t hesitate to contact a San Diego car accident attorney so that you can begin to plan how to get the compensation that you will need.

Whether you were cruising on the Kumeyaay Highway west towards the water or going to Sea World on I-5 when your collision occurred, you should enlist the help of a strong San Diego car accident attorney. If you were on North Harbor Drive headed to a local park or East Harbor Drive headed to a ballgame, a San Diego car accident lawyer can help you prepare for a possible lawsuit after your accident.

Even if you are a normally self-reliant person, or you are confident that you do not have any serious injuries, you will probably need the assistance of a San Diego personal injury lawyer for these reasons, among others:

  • Drivers who admit fault at the scene of an accident often change their minds later, when they find out how high their deductible is or how much their insurance premiums will rise. They also might want to avoid a ticket for reckless driving and the added points on their record. You could assume that you had an agreement about fault at the scene, only to find out that you have been summoned to court and forced to defend your version of the events that transpired. You don’t want to be in that situation alone. Contact a San Diego car accident lawyer for help. S/he will know how to go about establishing fault and proving your innocence or partial fault.
  • Injuries that don’t seem severe on the day of the accident could turn much more severe in the days and weeks that follow. Concussions often linger, neck sprains could indicate a bruised vertebra, back pain could signal a spinal injury. The list goes on and on. Rather than accept a paltry insurance settlement and then have to pay for months of rehabilitation and possible surgeries later, get in touch with a San Diego car accident lawyer and fight for compensation that will pay not only for past medical bills, but for future ones, as well as lost work time, and pain and suffering. Personal injury attorneys know how much money you will need to put your life and body back together.
  • Insurance companies might seem to care about your well-being after an accident, but they also care a lot about their bottom line. They will want to give you a check for as little as possible to cover your basic costs. You might think that the settlement is quite generous, until you discover how much a scan costs at the hospital a month later. By then, your settlement could be completely spent, and you could face thousands of dollars of medical bills with no help to pay for them. Let your personal injury lawyer go to bat for you. S/he might negotiate a settlement before your case reaches court, or s/he will defend you in court and argue for a much higher compensation amount to pay for future costs, lost work time, and pain and suffering.
  • If you have been in an accident with a bus or truck, you might have to interact with the city of San Diego or a powerful law firm representing a trucking company. This is no place for amateurs. Your San Diego personal injury lawyer will know what to do when the MTS says that the bus driver cannot be found at fault. S/he will know what to do when a truck’s brake failure led to the accident. Legal proceedings involving bus companies, transit authorities and trucking firms get far more complicated than routine cases involving another private citizen. You will want the aid of a skilled car accident attorney.

Our firm can help with all of these types of accidents:

  • Car accidents–whether or not you were at fault or partly at fault, we can help.
  • Truck accidents—these often lead to heavier damage and more serious injury. Taking on large companies can be daunting, but we have experienced great success in these cases.
  • School bus accidents—whether you were hit by a school bus, or your child was riding on a school bus involved in a collision, we can build a case for you.
  • Bus accidents–with two major transit systems in San Diego, hundreds of buses are on the road every day, with tourist buses further jamming the highways and city streets. It can be difficult to assign fault against a city bus driver. Someone from our firm can guide you on how to proceed.
  • Taxi accidents—taxis can be found all over the San Diego area, taking tourists and other visitors to the sites. Pursuing legal action against taxi companies can be tricky, but a San Diego taxi accident attorney will know what to do.
  • ATV accidents—the many tracks and parks in the San Diego area mean that thousands of these fun vehicles are in use every weekend. What’s not so fun are the often-serious injuries that occur in ATV accidents. A lawyer can help you get compensation for these incidents.
  • Trolley accidents—these attractive trains sometimes have negligent drivers or faulty braking systems. If you have been hit by one, or if you were riding the trolley when it hit a vehicle or another train, you will want a personal injury lawyer to pursue your case.
  • Motorcycle accidents—some motorcyclists can be very reckless in their driving; others drive carefully and are hit by cars piloted by unobservant drivers. Whether you were hit by a motorcycle or driving one that was hit, we can help you.
  • Hit-and-run accidents—don’t give up hope if you were in a hit-and-run accident. We know how to get you compensation in these cases.
  • Drunk driver accidents—these collisions are often very serious, for a large number of reasons. If your injuries were severe or you lost a loved one to a drunk driver, our firm will pursue your case with the appropriate vigor.

To prepare to meet with one of our expert San Diego car accident lawyers, please take these important steps:

  • Compile an orderly, detailed record of your medical appointments, diagnoses and bills.
  • Gather a file of your correspondence with insurance companies, the other driver(s) and medical professionals.
  • Assemble all of the evidence that you can, from photos shot at the scene by your cell phone to eyewitnesses’ contact information, to the police report. Having a wealth of evidence will only help your personal injury lawyer to build your case and get you compensation.

Don’t allow a vehicle accident to wreck your life, your body or your finances. There’s absolutely no reason for that to happen. Let a caring personal injury lawyer help you get your life back together again, as you heal and stop worrying about your costs.

Our firm is committed to seeing justice done in every vehicle accident case. We don’t mind pushing insurance companies for larger settlements, or taking on large trucking firms that do not maintain their vehicles or allow their drivers proper rest time.

Nothing will make us happier than seeing you come back after an accident and not have to pay for your own treatment, particularly when your accident was not your fault. We know San Diego’s courts, judges and opposing attorneys. We have the experience needed to build an air-tight case for you and secure large compensation packages that will be adequate to cover all of your costs, lost work time, and even pain and suffering.

We’re sorry that you were in a vehicle accident, but now it’s time for you to pick yourself up, make a wise move, and hire us to represent you in court. We stand ready to serve you, and we want our firm to be another reason why people think so highly of the great city of San Diego.
