Habits like distracted driving, speeding, and DUI can lead to road accidents. If you find yourself unable to safely operate a vehicle, you always have other options. For example, you can call a taxi service, Lyft, or Uber. Doing so helps to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
California Injury Crashes
Each year, around 20-50 million people are injured or become disabled due to an auto crash. Unfortunately, not everyone is properly informed about the things you should do next after an injury crash.
The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys prioritize your recovery while securing your future from further losses a severe accident can bring.
“A common misconception is that personal injury lawyers don’t care. That is simply not true. Injury lawyers care about and want justice for their clients. We are driven by the desire to make our clients whole again,” says Steve Baric of Sweet Lawyers, an attorney practicing for over 40 years.
