Common Causes of Car Accidents

If you've been injured in an El Cajon car crash, you're not alone. According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 12,871 car accident injuries reported in San Diego County last year. Accidents killed 193 people. In El Cajon, 494 people were injured and seven died in car accidents last year.

The leading cause of El Cajon car accidents is driver error or negligence. Some of the most common causes of car accidents involving driver negligence or error include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Driving while distracted
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way to other vehicles
  • Not stopping at a red light or stop sign
  • Making unsafe lane changes
  • Making unsafe turns
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in crosswalks

Steps to Take after a Car Accident

If you've been injured in an El Cajon car accident, be sure to remain at the scene and wait for authorities to arrive. If possible, try to gather as much evidence as possible at the scene. Get driver's license, insurance, and contact information of everyone involved in the collision. Get contact information for eyewitnesses as well. Take photographs of the crash scene, including positions of the vehicles, any skid marks or physical evidence, and injuries. Be sure to file a police report and get a copy for your records. Get prompt medical attention and treatment for your injuries. Then, contact an experienced El Cajon car accident attorney who will help protect your rights and best interests.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

After a car accident, it's important you report it to your insurance company right away. It's best to not talk to the other party's insurance adjuster or insurance company. Remember that the insurance company is not your friend. The goal of insurance companies is to limit or avoid payouts. This is how they keep their profits high. So, you should keep from making any statements to insurance adjusters that can be used against you.

DO NOT post anything online, on a blog or social media site, which can be used against you. Only discuss your case with an El Cajon personal injury lawyer who will guide and counsel you through the complex claims process.
