Common Personal Injury Accidents that Occur

While our E&L, LLP personal injury lawyers are prepared to represent our clients confidently and aggressively, no matter where the negligence that caused their injuries occurred, traffic collisions are some of the most common causes of life-changing injuries throughout California.

What are the Most Common Causes of Auto Accidents ?

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were 3,863 fatalities on our roadway last year.

Some of the most common causes of passenger vehicle accidents include:

  • Distracted Driving

  • Failing to Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
  • Inexperienced Driving
  • Head-on Collisions
  • Read-End Crashes

What are the Most Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents?

Much like car accidents, bicycle accidents may be caused by the same types of negligence which ends in cars, trucks, or SUVs colliding with a bicyclist who has very little protection and can be severely injured as a result

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents may include:

  • Defective helmets
  • Distracted driving
  • Dog bites or attacks
  • Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Poor maintenance of roads and pathways
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Unsafe bicycle design or manufacturing
  • Unsafe sidewalks, parking lots, or driveway conditions

If you have been injured by another driver’s negligent actions or inactions while riding your bike, contact our skilled bicycle accident lawyers today to schedule a free consultation to learn how we can help you hold them accountable for your complete damages.

What are the Most Common Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents?

At E&L, LLP, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in semi-truck collisions because we know how difficult it is for individuals and families to put their lives back together after one of these huge trucks causes life-changing injuries.

There are many reasons 18-wheelers collide with much smaller passenger vehicles, and most of them have to do with negligence actions or inaction that cause destruction across our interstates and local roadways.

The most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Truck Driver Negligence: The truck driver is the first line of defense for preventing these deadly crashes because they are the one’s operating a semi-truck that can carry up to 80,000 pounds of cargo.  When truck drivers negligently operate big rigs by speeding, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or driving aggressively, distracted, or without much sleep, other motorists are going to get hurt.
  • Trucking Company Negligence: Trucking companies large and small are required to hire experienced drivers with valid CDL licenses who can pass a background check and medical exam before they can begin transporting cargo locally or nationwide. When trucking companies fail to properly train inexperienced truck drivers, or negligently skip background checks, they could be putting a dangerous individual behind the wheel of a very large vehicle that can cause significant harm. Another way trucking companies are negligent is that they are looking out for their bottom line, which means they may force drivers to violate the federally mandated Hours of Service Regulations to increase deliveries and their revenue. When truck drivers do not get enough rest or time away from behind the wheel, accidents are likely to occur as a result.
  • Maintenance or Manufacturing Company Negligence: When companies forego scheduled maintenance on semi-trucks, there is a great risk for things to go terribly wrong during their operation. Tire blowouts and transmission, brake, or steering component failures can spell disaster for other drivers sharing the roadway. When semi-trucks are operating on mechanically defective manufacturer parts, we may also pursue the truck’s maker for financial recovery, in specific instances where negligence was a factor.
  • Third-Party Negligence:  Cargo loaders or other employees must pay strict attention to weight limits, load security, and other important hauling details to ensure the cargo remains in place during transport. Even when the cargo is enclosed in a trailer, any significant shift in weight can send the truck toppling over, causing severe or even deadly accidents. Each of these potentially negligent scenarios will require an experienced truck accident attorney to pursue the best financial outcome for your case, as we know how each party’s role in the collision may make them liable for our settlement demands.

What are the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycle riders account for 15% of all traffic accident-related fatalities, including the 520 deaths that occurred on our California roadways last year alone.

The most common types of motorcycle accidents caused by negligence include:

  • Aggressive and reckless driving
  • Dangerous road conditions
  • Distracted driving
  • Drivers making left turns in front of a motorcyclist
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Drivers who disobey traffic signs and signals
  • Motorcycle defects
  • Opening car doors without checking their surroundings
  • Reversing a vehicle without looking
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes

If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident – or lost a loved one when a negligent driver collided with their bike – contact our dedicated motorcycle accident attorneys today to learn how we can pursue the best financial outcome for your unique circumstances today.

What are the Most Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?

Pedestrian deaths have reached a thirty-year high throughout the United States, accounting for nearly 6,300 fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Pedestrian accidents account for 17% of all traffic deaths in the U.S., reaching an astonishing figure of one pedestrian killed across the country every 88 minutes.

Last year in California, 893 pedestrians were killed in traffic-related accidents, and thousands more were injured.

Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Improper and illegal turns
  • Failing to stop for school buses or pedestrian crossings
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failing to obey traffic signals and signs
  • Failing to yield to pedestrian right of way

If you have been injured while walking, jogging, or traveling anywhere on foot, contact our experienced pedestrian accident lawyers to learn more about your rights and legal option in holding the negligent driver liable for your financial recovery.

What are the Most Common Causes of Premises Liability Accidents in California?

Premises liability accidents, often called slips, trips, or falls, can happen anywhere negligence is a factor, including private property and public spaces like shopping malls and retail businesses, museums and aquariums, entertainment and sports venues, professional offices, government buildings, hotels and resorts, airports, amusement parks, grocery stores, and restaurants, to name a few.

In fact, premises liability can happen in private homes, where hazards can cause serious injuries to invited guests. One of the most common premises liability accidents is dog bites and attacks that occur in the homes of friends and family members throughout California.

Our experienced dog bite attorneys have the solutions you need to hold the dog’s owner accountable for your financial recovery – even if they are a family member or friend – by pursuing their homeowner’s insurance directly for your needs, so you can maintain your personal relationship while the case is moving forward and after it is completed.

Other common causes of premises liability injuries include:

  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Wet floors
  • Loose floor mats
  • Broken stairs, elevators, or escalators
  • Missing or damaged hand railings
  • Poorly lit areas
  • Falls from heights
  • Being struck by or against an object
  • Damaged playground equipment
  • Unsafe structures
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals
  • Fires
  • Electrocutions
  • Inadequate security

If you have been injured on private, public, or government property, contact our experienced personal injury attorneys today to learn about your rights and options in holding the liable party responsible for your financial recovery.

The statute of limitations is much shorter for government liability claims, so it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer directly after you seek medical care, so we can get started on your claim without delay.
