Freeway Accident Lawyer in Orange County
Recovering After Freeway Pile-Ups & Collisions
Because cars and trucks are traveling at high speeds on freeways, it is
not uncommon for a single vehicle collision to result in a pile-up of
multiple vehicles. Freeway accidents have a potential to cause serious
injuries, and even fatal injuries. Making sense of the situation and seeking
compensation from at-fault drivers is a task that can make these difficult
situations even more complicated.
If you have lost a loved one to fatal injuries in a freeway accident, we
may help you seek justice on their behalf and get the assistance your
family needs by
filing a wrongful death claim.
At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we help our clients make sense of what would
otherwise be an overwhelming accident situation. With the help of our
Orange County car accident attorney, victims of freeway accidents in Orange County can determine the full
amount of their losses and seek adequate financial compensation in a claim
against an insurance company or the negligent drivers involved.
Determining Who is Responsible in a Freeway Collision
Like any injury claim, establishing fault in the negligent party or parties
is a vital part of freeway accident cases. When multiple vehicles and
multiple collisions are involved, individuals may have a hard time understanding
who is responsible for causing their damages and injuries. Fortunately,
the California Vehicle Code (CVC) can clear up some of the confusion.
According to CVC § 16020-16033, all California drivers are required
by law to be able to pay for the damages and injuries they cause to others
in an accident. This means that
the negligent driver's insurance is responsible for your compensation. However, if the negligent driver does not have driver insurance, you
may need the help of an attorney to protect your entitlements.
Our Orange County car accident lawyers have recovered over $50 million
in damages for our clients. If you have been injured in a freeway accident,
contact our firm immediately!
How We Help Clients Protect Their Entitlements
Even if the driver who is responsible for causing your damages and injuries
does not have insurance, you may still be able to take legal action to
recover the financial recompense you need. Depending on your own insurance,
you may be able to claim uninsured motorist coverage. In other, our car accident attorney may help you
file an injury claim against the driver, rather than their insurance company.
We help our clients make successful claims that compensate for the following:
- Costs for medical treatment and rehabilitation
- Ongoing expenses for injuries and resulting disabilities
- Loss of wages in the present and in the future
- Loss of ability to enjoy life
- Loss of ability to seek gainful employment
- Physical pain and emotional suffering

Many victims of injury get caught up in the aftermath of a freeway accident
and the damages to other drivers that their insurance may have to cover.
In the meantime, they fail to take the steps that are necessary to secure
their own situation in a timely fashion. In some cases, they lose the
opportunity entirely and struggle with heavy financial burdens as they
pay for their own recovery.
The California statute of limitations only allows individuals to
personal injury or wrongful death claim within two years of the incident. Although it is unwise to rush into a claim, it is essential for accident
victims to consult a legal professional who may review their situation
and determine an effective course of legal action. Let us help you take
the first step toward a positive resolution.
