Car Accidents in Santa Ana

One of the most common causes of personal injuries is car accidents, and if you have been injured in one caused by someone or something else, you could be entitled to damages. While not all car accidents are reported to the police and recorded in official statistics, it is helpful to call the police to create a report as it can be helpful as evidence later in your claim for damages. 

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, in 2020 alone there were 36 accidents that led to injuries or fatalities, of which 14 were alcohol-related. If you or a loved one has been injured or worse in a Santa Ana car accident that was caused by someone or something else, such as a vehicle malfunction, you could be entitled to compensation for the medical costs, lost earnings, and pain and suffering associated with the accident. 

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include: 

  • Distracted driving – when a driver engages in any activity that visually, mentally, or manually impairs them from driving, they are engaging in distracted driving. One of the most common forms of distracted driving is using a hand-held cell phone driving, which is illegal according to the CA OTS. When a driver is engaging in distracted driving they are incapable of responding to conditions on the road and can engage in hazardous driving that directly or indirectly results in accidents. 
  • Drunk driving – all drunk driving is illegal, and if you were hit by a drunk driver in California, they will be liable for the damages that you have experienced. 
  • Aggressive driving and speeding – When drivers are engaging in activities on the road that violate the law, they are being what is known as “negligent per se”, which means that because they are breaking the law, they are by default negligent in their behavior. If a driver was speeding, ran a stop sign or red light, or engaged in other illegal aggressive driving behaviors, they will be responsible for your injuries. 

If you have been injured in a Santa Ana car accident, or any other kind of accident, our experienced attorneys are familiar with the local courts, their procedures, and how they apply law to cases. This kind of experience is invaluable when navigating your personal injury claim linked to the accident, and we have it. 

Santa Ana Motorcycle Accidents 

Being mindful of other vehicles on the road is a duty that is shared by all drivers in California, whether those vehicles are motorcycles, other cars, trucks, or pedestrians. As noted by the CA OTS, in 2020 there were 4 motorcycle accidents in Santa Ana that resulted in fatalities or injuries. Common causes of motorcycle accidents are: 

Motorcycles can be more difficult to see on the road, but that does not mean that drivers are freed from the responsibility of looking out for motorcyclists. If you or a loved one has experienced life-altering, long-term injuries following a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another party, the Santa Ana accident lawyers from the Law Offices of Benjamin Arsenian are standing by to review your case. 

Truck Accidents in Santa Ana 

According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 5,186 fatal crashes in CA in 2019. Of these: 127 involved a truck or truck tractor, with the truck driver at fault in 37 of these accidents; and 220 involved a truck or truck tractor with trailer, with the truck driver at fault in 45 of these accidents. A careful review of the facts and circumstances of your case, provided by through requests for information from the opposing party and their insurance company, supports the best outcome in your claim. 

Common causes of truck accidents include the same as car and motorcycle accidents above in terms of distracted driving and breaking the rules of the road, in addition to vehicle malfunctions, and drowsy driving when drivers are not given sufficient time off work. 

Santa Ana Bicycle Accidents in Santa Ana 

Bicyclists fell victim to just 1 accident in 2020 that was recorded by CA OTS, however, this is just the number of accidents that the authorities reported. You may have experienced injuries that you felt did not require the calling of emergency services and law enforcement to take an accident report. If your bicycle accident was unreported but caused injuries due to the negligence of another party, you are still entitled to compensation, and a Santa Ana Accident attorney can help. 

How Does My Santa Ana Accident Lawyer Help on My Case?

The first and most important role that Santa Ana accident lawyers play in the outcome of your personal injury case is proving the liability of the other party or parties involved in the case. When it comes to car, motorcycle, truck, and bicycle accidents, that will generally be the insurance company of the party at-fault for the accident. 

Providing liability requires that you prove that the negligence of another party caused the accident, meaning you have facts and present them in such a way as to prove the following four elements of your case:

  1. Duty – a party that caused an accident or incident must have had some duty towards you, such as other drivers having a responsibility to follow traffic laws, or for employers to maintain safe working conditions for employees. 
  2. Breach – the party with a duty towards you must have breached it, such as knowingly driving drunk or speeding in violation of the law, or failing to abide by safety rules and regulations in the workplace. 
  3. Causation – the breach of duty by the other party must have been the cause of your injuries, for example, another driver was driving drunk and as a result of that caused the accident that resulted in injuries. 
  4. Damages – there must be damages for you to collect, including property damage to your vehicle, as well as medical and psychological treatments needed for your injuries, and any loss of wages or future earnings ability that your injuries result in.

Your Santa Ana Accident Lawyer Computes and Pursues Your Damages

Once the four elements of negligence are proven, we then must prove the full amount of damages that the accident resulted in, which we will then pursue on your behalf in your personal injury claim. Determining what you are owed for your personal injury requires the input of medical and occupational professionals. 

Medical and psychological experts measure the present and future costs linked to your injuries.  Occupational experts take that information to measure the impact on your present and future employment. When your injuries permanently impact your earnings ability, you are able to collect not only present lost wages but long-term lost earnings potential. 

While you might not know where to begin to find such professionals who are familiar with personal injury lawsuits and the requirements of evidence, we do. Our network of medical and occupational professionals is available to provide assessments. You can only collect what you claim and what you can prove, and that is where the value of Santa Ana accident lawyers is best expressed.
