Vallejo Personal Injury & Vehicle Crash Statistics

According to AAA, Americans spend an average of 17,600 minutes behind the wheel each year. That’s over 290 hours of driving! And that doesn’t include the time spent as a passenger. Most of us don’t need a statistic to confirm what we know: we spend a lot of time in the car. How safe are we during that time?

The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) compiles data each year to help answer that question. In addition to releasing raw numbers about injuries and fatalities from various types of accidents, OTS also publishes Collision Ranking Results. These rankings compare a city’s safety statistics to those of other cities of similar sizes. They help identify areas where your city might be excelling in safety as well as areas where your city might improve.

In 2017 (the most recent year for which OTS has published data), more than 5,000 people were injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash in Vallejo. In addition to motorists and their passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicycle riders were frequent victims of injury accidents.

Some of the most common causes of vehicle crashes in and around Vallejo include:

  • Speeding,
  • Impaired driving,
  • Distracted driving,
  • Illegal lane changes,
  • Failure to heed traffic signage, and
  • Failure to yield.

In some cases, motorists suffer severe injuries in single-car crashes. Causes of single-vehicle accidents include road construction, debris in the roadway, and poorly maintained roads. In some cases, vehicle component failure—such as defective tires—can cause serious accidents and injuries.

Even in the safest cities and with the best precautions, accidents happen. It’s important to be informed in the event you are involved in an accident.

What Is My Vallejo Car Accident Claim Worth?

One of the most common questions that injury accident victims pose is, What is the average settlement value for a Vallejo car accident?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to identify any type of average settlement value for a car crash or other type of personal injury. Every client is different, and the details of your case will determine what your claim value might be. Beware of car accident settlement value calculators that claim to provide accurate estimates of what your case is worth. Without knowing all the details and the extent of your injuries, it’s difficult to derive an accurate value.

That said, most injury accident claims request compensation for some or all of the following:

  • Emergency medical care,
  • Hospital stays,
  • Medical testing and imaging,
  • Surgeries and other treatments,
  • Medications and medical devices,
  • In-home or residential care,
  • Physical therapy and rehab,
  • Lost wages,
  • Lost benefits and opportunities, and
  • Personal property damage.

You might also be entitled to compensation for your non-economic damages, such as:

  • Diminished quality of life,
  • Diminished earning capacity,
  • Emotional trauma,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Permanent injuries and scarring, and
  • Full or partial disability.

Talking to an attorney is the best way to get an accurate estimate of your claim’s potential value. An attorney can explain the legal process and recommend the best course of action to recover compensation in your case.

How to Choose the Best Vallejo Car Accident Lawyer for You

After an accident, you have countless challenges to deal with. You need prompt medical evaluation and treatment—and a way to pay your doctor bills. If you can’t return to work because of your injuries, you need a way to pay your bills and expenses. You may need to have your car repaired or replaced, depending on the damage.

As the bills pile up and you struggle to recover from your injuries, your worry and stress can feel overwhelming.

Having an experienced, compassionate attorney to handle your case provides the support you need to get through this challenging time. Your attorney will handle everything from investigating and documenting your claim to negotiating a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If necessary, your lawyer can file a civil suit to pursue your case in court.

Throughout the legal process, your attorney will be fighting to get you the resources you need and to recover the compensation you deserve. Your lawyer will help protect your legal rights and compel the insurance company to negotiate a fair financial settlement. This leaves you free to focus on your own health and recovery.

Choosing the right attorney makes everything easier—but how do you know which lawyer is the best one for you?

Look for a law firm that has experience handling personal injury cases like yours. Review their testimonials to see how past clients describe their experience. Don’t hesitate to ask about the firm’s past case results and track record for helping clients recover compensation.
