Years ago, Attorney Jason D. Cohn and Attorney Saar Swartzon came together to create an auto accident law firm that was to be known for providing exceptional legal services to clients who had been injured by the negligence of others. Since that time, this dynamic team has recovered over $45 million in winning verdicts and settlements for clients in Palm Springs and surrounding areas. The legal team at the firm has helped numerous accident clients through some very emotional and financially distressing times. The firm's primary aim is to recover significant compensation so that their clients can pay for their medical expenses and achieve financial security. Once clients have achieved financial stability, they can resume their lives without incurring additional stress.
Causes of Car Accidents and Who Can Be Held Responsible
There are virtually countless different potential causes of car accidents. These include:
- Drunk driving
- Driver error
- Driver distraction
- Talking on the phone
- Text messaging while driving
- Talking to a passenger
- Adjusting the radio
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Applying make-up
- Poor road design or maintenance
- Heavy weather conditions (wind, rain, snow)
- Defective auto parts
According to NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) auto accident statistics, approximately one-third of
fatalities in auto accidents involve drivers who are speeding. One-third of traffic accident fatalities also involve a driver with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater, which is above the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle in California.
Establishing what caused your car accident will assist your attorney in recovering financial compensation for your injuries. To do so, a lawyer working with you on your claim may utilize the services of professionals in accident reconstruction, may review police reports, may work with private investigators and may evaluate physical evidence related to the collision in order to determine exactly what led up to the accident and therefore which driver should be held responsible. If it was not a driver's fault and actually stemmed from a defective auto part, this should also be revealed by a careful investigation.
Once the cause of your car accident has been established, it will be up to your lawyer to prove this fact in negotiations with the other party or in civil court. Because liability for a car accident may be partial or complete (and if you are considered to be partially responsible your right to financial compensation may be limited), it will be important for your attorney to work diligently to achieve a successful resolution.
