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

Stop-and-go 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 while driving.

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
  • Daydreaming
  • 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.
