Skilled Vehicle Accident Lawyers Serving Salinas & San Jose Victims
Whether going about your daily routine in San Jose or exploring Salinas and the Bay Area, the potential for auto accidents and personal injury on the road is ever-present. Driver behavior, such as speeding, drunk driving and cell phone use, is often at the root of both minor fender-benders and fatal crashes. If another driver’s negligence, recklessness or failure to follow San Jose’s traffic laws causes your injury or leads to the loss of a loved one, a personal injury attorney at the Accident Recovery Legal Center will help you recover the maximum compensation possible for the harm you suffer.
Though we all drive most days without encountering any problems, it is extremely common to be involved in car accidents. It is an unfortunate fact of life that most of us will experience at least one auto accident during our lifetimes. It is especially disconcerting if you get hurt because of another driver’s inattention or negligence. In these situations it is essential that the responsible party pay for the expenses incurred on behalf of the injured person or people. Our seasoned personal injury attorneys will help you build your case and get the compensation you and your family deserve.
When an auto accident results in injury, compensation usually includes economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost income, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. When an accident results in death, California law allows certain surviving family members to recover damages for their own losses.
Due to a motorcycle’s unprotected design, riders are particularly vulnerable to serious injuries and even death. The size of a motorcycle can also be a hazard, since car and truck drivers often fail to see smaller vehicles in time to avoid them. And even the safest, most experienced motorcyclist can be the victim of biased public perceptions that generalize anyone on a motorcycle as reckless. With all of these factors at play, it’s wise to consult a knowledgeable auto accident attorney if you’re hurt in a motorcycle accident.
With restricted visibility and limited maneuvering capability, even the most competent truck drivers must work diligently to safely navigate semi-trucks and 18-wheelers. Many commercial truckers also drive long hauls and consequently suffer from fatigue, leading to a high rate of collisions with other drivers. Risks can be compounded by other factors such as driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, inexperience, reckless driving, improper maintenance and/or overloading. Commercial vehicle truck accidents involve both state and federal laws, potentially increasing their complexity. We possess the experience and skill to handle these claims.
While biking is an affordable and aerobic form of transportation, it can indeed be dangerous. You run the risk of being injured by cars or unsafe property such as poorly maintained sidewalks or crosswalks. If you or a loved one has become injured while riding a bike, we want to help you hold those responsible for injuries accountable. Don’t shoulder the weight of your medical care and expenses alone — give us a call today.
As a pedestrian, you may have the right of way, but you are always vulnerable when setting foot onto a public street, sidewalk or parking lot. Many pedestrian accidents occur due to driver negligence, such as failure to observe posted speed limits, failure to yield the right of way and general inattentive or preoccupied driving. Accidents can also result from hazards created by the negligence of property owners, cities, state agencies and/or other third parties. You don’t have to figure out the complexities of an injury claim on your own. We’ve successfully handled a variety of claims on behalf of pedestrian accident victims throughout San Jose, Salinas, Monterey County and Santa Clara County.
When we get behind the wheel of a car, we take responsibility not only for our own safety, but also that of everyone else around us. To drink and drive is a selfish action that flies in the face of decency and safety and those who do so should be held responsible for their carelessness. If you’ve been injured due to a drunk driver’s reckless driving you deserve to be fully compensated for any healthcare costs, loss of wages, or diminished earning capability. The attorneys at Accident Recover Legal Center will be your partners in seeking justice.
