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.

At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., our Orange County car accident attorneys have 40 years of experience practicing personal injury law. We have seen numerous cases in which an accident occurred in heavy traffic, resulting in a variety of injuries. Our lawyers have been rated AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®, which is a testament to our dedication to advocating for clients. Customers and peers alike recognize our excellent service, proven through more than $75 million dollars' worth of settlements that we have recovered for our clients. You can trust that your case is in the right hands.

Fight for the Compensation You Deserve

Stop-and-go car accidents 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.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • 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.”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

    “Saar Swartzon was very hardworking and courteous. The physical therapist he recommended was beyond excellent, and he coordinated all my visits and appointments. If I ever need a personal injury attorney, he will definitely be my man”

    Arash 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.”

  • 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!”
