How likely are you to be involved in a car accident in Fairfield?
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), the likelihood of an accident in Fairfield is higher than average for California cities of similar size.
In 2017, the most recent year for which OTS has provided data, almost 700 people sustained injuries or lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes in Fairfield. Although most of these victims were driving or riding in passenger vehicles, many were struck while walking, riding a bicycle, or operating a motorcycle.
Some of the most common causes of injury accidents in Fairfield include drivers who were speeding or who were impaired by drugs or alcohol.
To reduce your chances of sustaining serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident, you can start by implementing safe driving techniques. Nationwide suggests the most important tips are to focus on driving and drive defensively. Don’t try to multi-task—that text can wait. And give yourself time and space—you won’t save any time if that move ends in a crash. Also, remember that it is better to be safe than prove that you had the right of way. Don’t try to fight for the right of way only to end up in an accident. And, of course, wear your seatbelt to minimize injuries if there is an accident. Insist on passengers in your car wearing their seatbelts, too.
It is also extremely important to make sure that you have adequate uninsured / underinsured coverage from your automotive insurance provider. In California, the state’s minimum bodily insurance coverage is only $15,000 per person / $30,000 per occurrence. This means that if someone hits you, and you’re injured, the at fault party’s insurance provider only has to pay up to $15,000 for your injuries. In many cases, $15,000 is not enough to cover medical expenses. The best way that you can protect yourself, is to make sure that you have at least $100,000 per person / $200,000 per occurrence of uninsured / under-insured coverage from your automotive insurance provider. This ensures that if you’re hit by someone with no automotive insurance, or the state minimum, then you’ll be able to seek adequate recovery from your insurance provider as well.
Ultimately, you cannot control the actions of other motorists. If another party’s wrongful actions or negligence caused you to sustain injuries, they deserve to be held accountable for your damages. This is where our personal injury lawyers in Fairfield can help you.

Never provide a statement to the insurance company or consider accepting a settlement offer without first consulting an attorney. The insurer can use anything you say in your statement against you, with the hope of reducing your settlement or denying your claim.
Another compelling reason to contact an attorney immediately after an injury accident is the California statute of limitations. Under the statute of limitations, you have only two years from the date of your accident to take legal action. If you don’t act within that time, you could lose your right to pursue a claim.
