Negligence in Car Accident Cases

As in most personal injury cases, negligence is a key element of car accident claims. In order to pursue recovery for your damages, you must prove that another person or entity acted negligently and that this negligence led to the accident and your injuries.

There are countless ways in which a car wreck might be the result of negligence. Some of the most common examples include accidents caused by:

This list is not exhaustive. There are many situations that can involve negligence leading to an auto accident. Every case is different, which is why our Oxnard car accident lawyers take the time to listen to you, understand the unique details involved in your case, and work to provide a personalized approach tailored to your goals.

Types of Car Accidents

Car crashes may be caused by drunk or distracted driving, reckless or aggressive behavior, defective car parts, poor road conditions, and driver error. We represent clients who have been injured in all types of auto accidents.

The most common types of auto accidents include:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Side-impact collisions
  • Vehicle rollovers
  • Sideswipe collisions

Read-end collisions occur when a driver stops suddenly, causing another driver to crash into the back of the vehicle. These accidents can also happen if a driver isn’t paying attention and does not notice that traffic has stopped. Head-on collisions are often fatal, and may be caused by distracted or drunk driving. Side-impact collisions are also called T-bone or broadside collisions, and often occur at intersections.

Sideswipe collisions happen when two cars are driving parallel to each other and get too close, touching the sides of the vehicles. Furthermore, vehicle rollovers may result in serious injuries. Trucks and SUVs with a high center of gravity may tip over around turns, and slowing down could help prevent vehicle rollover accidents.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Injuries commonly caused by auto accidents Include:

  1. Soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries include whiplash, muscle strains, ligament or tendon strains, and bruises or abrasions. These injuries may not show symptoms for hours, days, or even weeks after the initial trauma. That is why it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you feel uninjured.
  2. Catastrophic injuries. These injuries could permanently affect your ability to maintain gainful employment. The most common types of catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, accidental amputations, and severe burns. Spinal cord trauma could cause partial or full paralysis, and traumatic brain injuries could lead to long-term mental, emotional, and physical symptoms. Third and fourth-degree burn injuries could also lead to permanent nerve damage, pain, and decreased mobility.
  3. Arm and leg injuries. Car accidents often result in trauma to passengers' arms and legs. Victims may suffer broken bones, fractures, bruises, lacerations, puncture wounds, burns, and sprains.
  4. Chest injuries. Drivers are the most at risk for chest injuries because they sit behind the steering wheel. Chest injuries include bruises, broken ribs, fractures, and collapsed lungs. Passengers could also suffer bruises and lacerations from the seat belt.

If you are seriously injured in a car accident, it is important to call 911 and wait for emergency medical personnel to arrive. However, even if you don’t feel injured, you need to make an appointment to see your doctor right away. Some injuries, such as catastrophic injuries, may cause you to be permanently disabled. You shouldn’t have to suffer financial strain as a result of someone else’s negligence. Our Oxnard car accident attorneys will gather evidence, help you file a claim in a timely manner, and diligently represent you from start to finish.
