Common Causes of Car Crashes in Moreno Valley, California

Car accidents are unfortunately all too common in Southern California’s busy roads, and Moreno Valley’s are no exception to that. Getting into an accident can not only cause injury and damage to your vehicle, but also financial strain to you and your family when you have to miss work as a result. It often causes emotional distress and substantial inconvenience.

That is why knowing how to avoid accidents can be so useful. One way to help yourself avoid accidents is to be aware of how the majority of them happen in the first place. Here are some of the most common causes of car accidents:

  • Distracted driving: congested roads, short attention spans, and smart phones are a dangerous combination. We are inundated with attention grabbing applications seemingly every minute of our lives, which can make attentively operating a vehicle challenging. Even cueing up your wanted songs on the radio can cause an accident.
  • Intoxicated driving: it is unfortunately all too common for people to get behind the wheel even while under the influence. Taxis and rideshare applications like Uber and Lyft can prevent this kind of danger to other drivers.
  • Reckless driving: oftentimes drivers forget they are operating a several thousand pound piece of metal in close proximity to other people. The constant use of cars makes people forget how dangerous they can be. Unsafe lane changes, reckless speeding, and running red lights and stop signs cause many auto collisions.
  • Tailgating: another common cause of auto accidents is following too closely. Driving in traffic on a regular basis can be infuriating, but tailgating doesn’t speed up the vehicles in front of you.

Younglove Law Group sees many injury claims caused by auto collisions, many of which could have been prevented had the drivers been more cautious, and perhaps even defensive. The vast majority of car accidents result in injury to at least one of the vehicles’ occupants. If you have been involved in a Moreno Valley car accident, you should seek medical treatment right away. Even if you do not feel as though your injuries are severe, a latent injury can be made worse without prompt medical attention.

Our personal injury lawyers are aggressive advocates for our clients’ interests and are experts in handling car accident claims. 

How Do I Value My Moreno Valley Car Accident Claim?

In California, there are 2 broad types of compensation you can pursue. Unless you were driving without auto insurance, you are entitled to both. Our aggressive attorneys seek the full measure of our clients’ claims by pursuing all available sources of recovery. We do this by being thorough and obtaining all necessary supports for their claims.

One type of compensation you can pursue in an auto accident claim if you have auto insurance is called non-economic damages. This is compensation for the subjective issues that arise after an accident, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Grief
  • Inconvenience
  • Emotional distress
  • Anxiety

The second type of compensation you can pursue in your car accident claim, regardless of whether you have auto insurance, is called economic damages. These include:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Property loss
  • Babysitting expenses

While the types of compensation that can be pursued is consistent, every claim is different. While one claim may be strong due to the pain and suffering endured by the injured claimant, another may be entirely reliant on the economic damages due to the claimant having no auto insurance. That is because California’s Proposition 213 requires all drivers to have valid auto insurance when they are involved in an accident, regardless of whether they were at fault. For example, if you are rear-ended but do not have an active auto insurance policy at the time, you will only be able to pursue compensation for your economic damages. That means you will be prevented from recovering compensation for your pain and suffering.

It is important to have quality legal representation in California, as even Proposition 213 has exceptions. Our skilled attorneys actively push claims to these exceptions in order to maximize our clients’ recoveries.

Phil is amazing. Last year I had a pretty traumatic incident at a grocery store, and really had no idea what I was going to do. I had some doctor’s bills, had to take off of work, and got behind on a few things. I got in contact with Phil and the folks that he works with, and they literally walk me step by step through the whole process. It took a little while, but the patience definitely paid off. Phil is knowledgeable and definitely an excellent attorney. I would recommend him anytime.

I was in an accident in June 2019, and from the moment I called them I was immediately taken care of. They sent someone to my home (pre-pandemic), to take my statement and any photos I had. They constantly kept in contact, returned my calls in a timely manner, and it was absolutely amazing how well organized they are – so efficient! My attorney, Phil Younglove is fantastic! I was so pleased with my settlement, very happy. They’re an incredible team, and thanks to Chloe Hunt, who is also amazing.
