Carlsbad Car Accident Attorneys
What You Need to Know If You've Been Hurt in an Auto Accident
When negligent drivers put you or a loved one in danger, or worse, the hospital, you have the right to compensation from the liable party. But, in a car accident claim, that means you’ll be dealing with the negligent driver’s insurance company. The insurance company’s claims adjuster may act concerned and willing to work with you, but don’t be fooled. Insurance companies are ruthless corporations with one purpose: to make money.
If you don’t agree with the payout the claims adjuster offers you—and they may offer you nothing at all—you’ll be forced to deal with the insurance company’s lawyers. This can be a long, expensive, and complicated ordeal that may end up in court. Without extensive legal knowledge and experience, your chances of winning against the insurance company are slim. That’s why you need a seasoned Carlsbad personal injury attorney on your side.

Over the past few years, the population of scenic Carlsbad, has increased by roughly 5%--a decent jump in comparison to the rest of San Diego's North County. The United States Census estimates that from 2011 to 2013, the population of Carlsbad grew from 105,000 individuals to over 110,000. With seven miles of pristine Pacific Coast to enjoy, only a short commute south to San Diego, and burgeoning employment opportunities, it's not hard to see why.
But with a bump in population--a quarter of which are under 18 and just beginning to drive--comes an increase in traffic and the potential for collisions. In 2011 the California State Highway Patrol reported that a total of 572 people were injured and three people were killed in vehicle collisions in Carlsbad. A great deal of this can be attributed to the many highways running in and out of the city. Interstate 5 is a consistently dangerous roadway, with accidents being reported up and down the corridor--particularly at the junctions with State Route 78 and Palomar Airport Road.
Qualified Representation from our Carlsbad Car Accident Attorneys
Getting around the San Diego area requires spending a good deal of time in an automobile. Unfortunately, traveling by car can be one of the more dangerous modes of transportation, particularly in urban areas. If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a traffic accident, don’t expect an irresponsible driver’s insurance company to do you any favors. Insurance companies simply aren’t interested in getting you the compensation you deserve. Their goal is to avoid making payouts as often as possible, and when forced to make payouts, make them as low as possible. Unfortunately, they are often very successful in this endeavor. Insurance companies exploit the fact that many injury victims are unaware of their rights following an automobile accident, and use this lack of knowledge to avoid paying just compensation. Don’t let this happen to you.
