Types of Car Accidents in California

At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we have helped countless clients recover the compensation they are due for their injuries. If you have been injured in a vehicle crash caused by the negligence of another, we may be able to assist you in obtaining compensation.

Our car accident lawyer in Santa Ana, CA can handle all different types of accident cases, including:

  • Defective Roadway Design: Not all accidents are caused by other drivers; often a car crash is the result of a road or freeway that is not properly designed or maintained. In these scenarios, it is essential to have a car accident attorney in Orange County in your corner who is not afraid to stand up to government agencies.
  • Drunk Driving Accident: Accidents caused by drunk drivers can be some of the most devastating. When a person consumes too much alcohol, the alcohol greatly impacts their decision making process and severely reduces their response time. Combining these factors with a fast moving vehicle is a recipe for disaster.
  • Rollover Accidents: While not seen as often as many other types of accidents, this accident causes some of the most serious injuries, often fatal ones. Those who are in the vehicle during a rollover accident are vulnerable to ejections as well as crush injuries if the roof collapses. Seeking compensation for these kinds of injuries can be more complicated than other accidents, as they are typically not caused by other drivers.
  • Side-Impact Accidents: Side-impact accidents have dangers that are unique in comparison to rear-end or head-on collisions, as the amount of space and protection between you and the other car is minimized. This often leads to far more severe injuries and in the worst cases, deaths.
  • Stop and Go Accidents: 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.
  • Stop Sign Accidents: If a negligent driver failed to stop at a stop sign, and you were injured, the negligent driver must be held accountable. Moreover, if the stop sign was obstructed by trees, vegetation or other objects, was improperly placed due to changed conditions, or was improperly maintained, you may also have a claim against the responsible public entity.

Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. has handled a number of successful auto accident cases, including:

  • $550,000.00 – Clients were hit by a drunk driver
  • $525,000.00 – Client was rear-ended by a truck driver
  • $400,000.00 – Client was hit by an inattentive truck driver
  • $295,000.00 – Client was injured in a T-bone accident

Common Types of Injuries in Auto Accidents

Depending on the speed and impact of the collision, a driver, passenger, bicyclist or pedestrian involved in a car accident of any kind could suffer minor, serious or even life-threatening injuries. These injuries can lead to expensive medical bills. Regardless of the details of your case, you deserve to work with an experienced personal injury attorney in Orange County. This can help ensure that you get the money you need for medical bills, lost wages, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering.

We are ready to help you pursue compensation for accident-related injuries that include:

  • Head trauma/whiplash
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Injury to internal organs

When Should I Hire a Car Accident Attorney?

According to the DMV, you should hire a personal injury attorney when:

  • You sustained serious injuries with possible long-term repercussions.
  • The other involved driver was uninsured or underinsured.
  • You and the other driver are in dispute over who was at fault.
  • You are feeling pressured by the claims adjuster to agree to a quick settlement. Fast usually takes precedent over fair, often leading to rash decisions compounded by complicated insurance-speak in the settlement agreement.
  • You don't feel you're being fully compensated for your current and future medical costs resulting from your car accident injury}.
  • You feel your state's statutes of limitation laws may come into effect before you can challenge the settlement claim on your own.

Many times insurance companies try to take advantage of victims before they have even had a chance to speak to an attorney. For years a major insurance company encouraged claimants to not hire an attorney in injury cases.

Another tactic that insurance companies will use is to call a victim asking for a recorded statement. This is by no means required for settlement and should only be done after careful consultation with a personal injury attorney.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?

A car accident lawyer should not cost you anything unless they are successful in getting your case settled, or achieve a positive verdict in court. The majority of car insurance claims are settled rather than requiring litigation.

At Cohn & Swartzon we provide legal services to our clients on a contingency fee basis, which means that instead of you having to pay upfront for the firm's representation an attorney will begin working on your case, you agree to pay the firm a prearranged percentage of the compensation achieved for you. Whether the firm helps negotiate a settlement for you, or they take your case to trial, the end result is the same. You will only pay a percentage of the total amount recovered on your behalf. The benefit is that you will have an attorney you can rely on to protect your interests and who will be heavily focused upon pursuing the maximum compensation for your case.

If you have suffered injuries due to an inattentive, drunk or negligent driver, do not waste any time before speaking with an attorney.

Your mental and physical recovery is important to us, and we will do everything in our power to assist you.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • Thank you again for all your help and dedication

    “Saar, I wanted to say thank you again for all your help and dedication. The settlement was a bonus. My main concern was my well-being. And I'm glad to say I am well. I do not have any back pain and I can enjoy watching and interacting with my daughter. One more time and on behalf of my family, thanks.”

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

    Kathy B.

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
