Causes of Car Accidents in Long Beach, CA

Car accidents are frequently caused by driver negligence, meaning a driver failed in their duty to safely and legally navigate the road. Aspects such as poor weather and road conditions can further increase the odds of an accident and make accidents more severe.

The city of Long Beach is densely populated, with many high risk freeways and roadways. In 2017, there were 26 reported fatal accidents in the city alone, 4 of which involved drunk drivers and 9 of which involved pedestrians.

The most common causes for car accidents from another driver's negligence are:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Changing lanes without signaling
  • Running red lights
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Failure to brake in a timely manner
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Illegal street racing

These different car accident causes can lead to different lawsuit opportunities. Our attorneys can assess the cause of the accident and any relevant laws, including right-of-way laws, to help secure the loss compensation you need.

Common Accident Injuries

Depending on the severity of the accident, you can sustain different types of injuries. These injuries can further lead to high medical bills and alter the quality of your life.

If you have been the victim of a car accident in which you were injured, it's important to preserve as much evidence of the facts of the situation as you can. You should also reach out to a car accident lawyer as soon as possible. An attorney can best help you protect yourself in this stressful and legally contentious time.

Were You Injured by a Drunk Driver?

Alcohol-related accidents are a special kind of personal injury case requiring the representation of an attorney with our specific skill set. The accused drunk driver will likely hire counsel whose sole purpose is to alleviate or eliminate their charges. If that drunk driver is freed of blame, you may never receive compensation for your injuries.

Our job is to make sure your injuries are financially covered and that the drunk driver is appropriately prosecuted. Especially if the accident resulted in a death, you want a Long Beach personal injury attorney who is ready to aggressively pursue justice on your behalf, seeking the compensation to which you may be entitled.
