Why You Need an Interstate Accident Attorney
California is a tort-based car accident state. After a crash you did not cause, you will contact the other driver’s insurance company to pursue financial compensation. The agent assigned to your case may try to handle it unfairly, however, with tactics such as drawing out the investigation process, delaying your payment or offering a low settlement. In these situations, an aggressive Los Angeles car accident attorney from our firm can help you force the insurer to treat your claim more reasonably. Most insurance companies will change the way they handle claims immediately upon learning the claimant has hired an attorney. If not, we are not afraid to take your I-405 accident case to court.
What Causes Interstate 405 Accidents?
I-405 is a busy freeway that is often heavy with commuters and freight haulers. By many counts, it is the most congested freeway in the U.S. It serves as an important route for people who live in cities and suburbs in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. In our years serving accident victims throughout Southern California, we have represented clients involved in auto accidents with all types of causes on the 405.
- Stop-and-go traffic
- Texting and driving/distracted driving
- Unsafe lane changes or merges
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Drowsy driving
- Roadway defects
- Vehicle defects
- Unsafe construction sites
Collisions on I-405 often occur at slow speeds due to heavy traffic congestion. Even these collisions, however, could cause whiplash and other injuries to vehicle occupants. A low-speed collision could also cause serious damage to vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists. No matter what you believe caused your auto accident, contact us to find out if we can help.
California Car Accident Laws
An I-405 accident claim will involve a few specific state traffic laws. Insurance laws, for instance, will play a role in your claim by determining who will take financial responsibility for your losses. Your case may also involve the state’s statute of limitations if you plan on bringing an injury claim to court. You have two years from the date of your Interstate 405 accident to go to court and file a lawsuit against the party or parties that could be responsible. If you miss this time limit, you may lose any right to obtain compensation. The lawyers at Rose, Klein & Marias LLP can help you navigate the laws that apply to your specific claim.
