Santa Barbara Car Accidents:
Getting into a car crash can be a life changing and extremely traumatic. It is your right to seek financial compensation for your injury from the negligent party’s insurance. We help clients who feel helpless after a car accident. Our compassionate car accident attorneys in Santa Barbara can agree that no case is alike and are dedicated to help injured victims seek compensation for the pain they’ve incurred from the car crash.
However, there are common types of car accidents:
- Distracted Driving: More and more people are driving distracted on our side streets, highway and freeways. Whether they are looking at the beach or texting on their phone, these accidents happen far too often and innocent people are injured from their negligence. When a driver is distracted, their reaction times are often too slow to avoid a terrible wreck.
- Drunk Driving: Drunk drivers get behind the wheel and rear-end, side-swipe, run a red light or T-bone others due to their intoxicated state. You should never live with the pain from the DUI drivers’ terrible mistake.
- Speeding: There are different speed limits throughout Santa Barbara. Therefore, accidents do happen when people are driving out of control and disregard the speed limit signs.
What to Do After a Car Accident?
Most importantly, our car accident attorneys want every accident victim to get the proper medical treatment that would ensure progress in their recovery. It is critical to seek medical treatment right after you’ve been in a car accident or when you feel the onset of pain. It is important to know that our Santa Barbara accident lawyers will demand your past and future medical expenses to be paid at the end settlement.
Once you have gone to a doctor or medical professional and diagnosed your injuries, we suggest getting a property damage estimate done to your vehicle. It is crucial to know the extent of your injuries and amount of damage that was done to your car at the initial consultation. Our Santa Barbara car accident lawyers suggest that you do not speak to the negligent drivers’ insurance company right away. Most insurance companies will ask you if you are injured right away, and if you say no, they may use it against you in the future.
