Stop-and-Go Accidents in Orange County
Legal Counsel to Hold Inattentive Drivers Accountable
Southern California traffic is notoriously heavy; which means that drivers
are highly susceptible to stop-and-go accidents. These occur when drivers
are inattentive or distracted in high traffic and do not notice when traffic
has stopped moving. If you have been injured in such an accident, you
have the right to take action. Drivers should be well-aware of potential
halts in traffic, and we want to help ensure that drivers who cause injuries
due to inattentiveness are held accountable.

Fight for the Compensation You Deserve
car accidents are unnecessary and only further exacerbate the traffic that initiated
it. Orange County traffic requires drivers to be attentive, alert, and
focused at all times, as the slightest reduction of speed can be detrimental.
Construction zones, accidents, and even the simple horde of cars on the
freeway during rush hour can all lead to traffic jams. Drivers in the area should
be aware of the possibility of these hazards and should exercise caution
If you were injured in a stop-and-go accident, you must prove that the
other driver was negligent, and that his or her negligent was the direct
or proximate cause of your injury. The theory of negligence means that
an individual has a duty to take reasonable measures to avoid endangering
your safety and failed to do so. Typically, in a stop-and-go accident
case, a negligent driver would be one that was inattentive or not alert.
Negligence that can cause stop-and-go accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Driver distraction
- Driving too fast
- Watching the rear-view mirror
- Changing lanes unsafely
Our car accident lawyers can evaluate your case to determine whether or
not the other driver was acting in negligence. We can compile extensive
evidence including police reports, BAC tests, witness testimony, and medical
records to build aggressive arguments in order to help you seek the compensation
you deserve. Stop-and-go accidents can cause severe, lingering injuries
that bring with them a financial burden. We believe that you should not
have to shoulder the responsibility for the negligent actions of another
and want to help you take action.
