Auto accident claims are the leading source of personal injury cases in the United States. Roughly half of all car accidents result in injury claims and a considerable number of those become lawsuits.
Car accidents usually happen because one driver was at fault. The theory of fault is usually negligence, meaning that the driver failed to act reasonably in the operation of his or her vehicle. A driver is required to drive in the way that a reasonably prudent person would drive. A driver cannot drive in such a way as to needlessly endanger other motorists and pedestrians. In other words, drivers must drive at a safe speed. If they do not, it is considered negligence.
Automobile accidents happen in a variety of ways under many different circumstances. Unique issues of negligence and liability apply to each accident types. And it is important to remember that EVERY ACCIDENT IS DIFFERENT. Types of automobile accidents may include:
California is well known for its extensive highway system. Highways in San Diego County are also a primary location for high speed vehicle accidents. In addition to allowing cars to travel at higher speeds, highways are used by large trucks, commercial vehicles and buses that also travel at high speeds. Loss of control can happen in the flash of an eye blink. A brief moment of inattention, an inexperienced driver, or road debris can quickly cause an accident. Not only can the sheer larger size of some motor vehicles increase damage potential, the high speeds of travel compound effects when a crash does occur.
In San Diego and across California, the causes of high speed highway accidents are similar:

It is a simple fact that speed alone increases damages. When a car traveling at high velocity comes to a sudden stop, the occupants of that car continue to move forward at those same high speeds. Colliding with the vehicle interior, frame or being tossed out of the vehicle can result in severe head, neck, spine and internal damages or death. Victims can be pinned inside wreckage and bleed out while awaiting rescue. Damages can be severe and require extensive medical care, surgery and rehabilitation – if a recovery is possible. All this creates a tremendous financial burden for the victim and their family. Typical damage claims for highway accidents include:
Anyone can become a victim of a highway accident through no fault of their own. Even the safest vehicle offers scant protection in a high speed crash. Road hazards can cause a slide and roll over. Injuries in high speed crashes require expensive medical care and treatment.
