Auto Accidents Can Alter Lives
The accident was so fast that you didn’t even know what had happened until it was over. You may have been stuck in rush hour traffic‚ inching your way towards an exit. You may have been heading to the beach for a weekend with the family. Or perhaps you were simply driving home from a long day at work. No one knows if‚ when‚ or where a traffic accident is going to happen.
Unfortunately‚ driving defensively isn’t always enough to keep you or your passengers safe. All it takes is one negligent driver to cross your path‚ and your life can be seriously altered.
Most California motorists only carry the minimum for bodily injury on their automobile insurance policies: $30‚000. When you add up the costs of a severe injury that requires multiple surgeries‚ and the lost wages you’ll suffer from missed work‚ $30‚000 doesn’t go very far. That’s why you need a skilled car accident attorney to represent you in a personal injury lawsuit.
The legal team at San Diego’s Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers won’t let you get stuck with the bill for injuries that weren’t your fault. Our experienced Oceanside personal injury attorneys will sue the liable driver’s insurance company to get you compensation for ALL your losses.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?
While it’s impossible to say what your claim is worth without first reviewing the facts‚ there are two general categories of compensation we can pursue on your behalf:
- Economic damages – Includes present and future medical costs‚ lost wages‚ loss of career and earning capacity‚ property damage‚ etc.
- Non-economic damage – Includes pain and suffering‚ emotional trauma and mental anguish‚ hedonic damages for loss of joy of life‚ and more.
Most Dangerous Streets and Intersections in Oceanside

The stretch of road on Mission Avenue between Butler Street and Amick Street is notorious for accidents. Route 76‚ a major roadway used by commuters in outlying communities‚ has also been identified as a problem area. Caltrans has attempted to address the problem by implementing larger traffic signs at various key points along CA-76.
