Perhaps more than anything else we own, we depend on cars. We depend on them to work and to take us where we need to go. But we also depend on others -- on manufacturers to make safe and reliable automobiles and parts, and on fellow drivers to operate their own vehicles safely. Unfortunately, that reliance is often misplaced. And accidents -- and harm -- result. If you or a loved one has been in a car accident and need legal help from an Oakland, San Jose, San Mateo or San Francisco car accident lawyer call 877.454.9315 or email us online.
Oakland, San Jose, San Mateo & San Francisco Car Accident Lawyers
In 2006, nearly 18,000 people died in car crashes in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Almost 1.5 million more were injured. The top three causes of fatal accidents all involve negligence: failure to keep in the proper lane or running off the road; driving too fast for the conditions or above the posted speed limit; driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication. Defective systems -- like cars that roll over when they shouldn’t, and improperly designed child safety seats -- also contribute to the deadly toll on the roads. –Although 82 percent of drivers in 2006 say they wore their seatbelts, according to the NHTSA, too many lives are still lost or changed forever when others don’t put safety first.
