Common Causes of a Car Accident on the Central Coast:
The central coast is a fantastic place to take a scenic drive. Unfortunately, there are many auto accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents that occur on Highway 101, SR-1, SR-46, SR-41 and SR-58.
- Texting and Driving: We have counseled many San Luis Obispo car accident victims who have suffered an injury due to another driver texting. Phone usage while driving has become no surprise to motorists.
- Speeding: The speed limits change frequently on the common highways for a reason. There are windy roads and unexpected hills that are regular accident spots because people do not pay attention to the signs.
- DUI: We have represented many accident victims who have been sideswiped, t-boned, and rear-ended by a drunk driver.
Our San Luis Obispo accident lawyers offer a free consultation to car accident victims. Harris Personal Injury Lawyers have seen car accident victims suffer injuries ranging from lacerations and bruises to brain damage, spinal injuries, and even death.
Why Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?
There is no risk in hiring Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. We offer a free consultation at our office or over the phone. Our team of attorneys have over a decade of experience in solely personal injury litigation and have successfully recovered over $300,000,000. We have the knowledge and confidence to take on the biggest insurance companies as we know that dealing with insurance companies is no easy task. We know how insurance adjusters will take any piece of evidence or information to minimize your claim. Essentially, they may try and blame you for the accident, even when you are not liable in any way. This could diminish the value of your claim.
Accident victims come to our law firm with back pain and neck pain due to an accident time and time again. However, many of these victims have already told insurance adjusters that they are, ‘Okay/Not Injured’ after the accident. Our job is to make your post-accident recovery time, a legitimate time to recover and not a headache.
What to Do After a Car Accident in San Luis Obispo:
- Retain a police report on the collision scene. This report will allow us to document the facts of the accident.
- Get the other driver’s information and is possible any witness information.
- Seek medical attention as soon as possible.
- Common misconception: You must tell the insurance adjuster how you are feeling right after the accident. Do not discuss the accident or your injuries to anyone other than the police, your doctor or your lawyer. Giving statements to insurance representatives without speaking to your auto accident lawyer first can negatively impact your legal case.
