The NHTSA reports that in 2018 there were 3,563 traffic fatalities in California alone. Of those fatalities, 1,069 were a result of alcohol-impaired driving, and 927 were caused by speed-related accidents.

After a car accident, you have a lot to deal with, especially if you or a loved one were injured. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult and are known for not wanting to pay full compensation. However, if you were injured in an auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and your lost property. Our car accident attorneys in Pasadena have extensive experience handling these types of cases. We can put our insights to work on your behalf.

What is the California Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents?

  • Personal Injury Lawsuit - If you are filing a claim for a personal injury that resulted from your accident you have up to 2 years after your accident to file your lawsuit
  • Wrongful Death Lawsuit - If someone was killed in the car accident and you are filing a claim on behalf of your loved one, you are able to file your lawsuit up to 2 years following the date of your loved one's death
  • Property Damage Lawsuit - If you only will to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for vehicle damage, you may file a lawsuit up to 3 years after the date of the accident

What Kind of Car Accident Compensation Am I Eligible For?

More often than not auto accidents result in injury. These injuries can range from whiplash to catastrophic brain injuries and wrongful death. It is recommended that you seek medical care after a car accident to ensure that any injuries you have sustained are treated promptly. This process can be overwhelming, but a personal injury lawyer can help.

What is the Most Common Collision Type?

In cities like Pasadena, some of the most common types of collisions leading to car crash injury claims include:

Rear End Collisions - When the car in front of you stops short, or a pedestrian carelessly wanders in front of you, you're forced to slam on the breaks. Oftentimes if the driver behind you wasn't paying attention or was following too closely, this can result in a rear end collision.

Left Turn Car Accidents - Making left turns can lead to serious accidents if someone attempts to turn too early or isn't paying attention to the traffic that has right-of-way. Side impact car accidents can be extremely dangerous because one side of the vehicle takes the brunt of the damage.

Hit and Run Accidents - Hit and run accidents can involve anyone from bicyclists to pedestrians, and often other vehicles. Hit and run compensation can also be one of the most difficult types of cases to handle because the guilty party often does not have car insurance. A common place for hit and runs to occur is in parking lots where there are a lot of pedestrians and vehicles moving in and out of parking spaces.

Parking Lot Accidents - In bustling cities like Pasadena, parking lots or parking structures can be a common location for accidents to occur. With a lot of drivers forced to navigate small spaces and many of them distracted by trying to find the ideal parking spot, collisions are a common occurance.
