Traffic in the Los Angeles area is already thick enough during the first 11 months of the year, but when December arrives and holiday travelers hit the roads, it becomes even more of an issue. As you drive to and from houses of friends and family, it’s important to be alert and aware of all that is going on around you. Unfortunately, you can’t control what other drivers do, or what decisions they make before they get behind the wheel. It could be an out-of-state driver that isn’t sure where they’re going, or someone coming back from a holiday party, but if someone else hits you with their car and causes injury, you need an auto accident attorney that can properly represent you.
At Halpern & Associates, we’ve helped several clients that were injured during the holiday season due to the negligence or irresponsibility of another driver. Depending on where you are in California, road conditions can be a factor, and if someone is driving recklessly on wet pavement or following too closely and rear-ends your car, they are more than likely at fault for the accident that caused your injuries. You can also encounter aggressive drivers that feel that where they have to go is more important than your destination, and this can also cause an accident.
We want you to be safe on the roads this December, but if you’re injured in an auto accident, please call and speak to an attorney right away. We’re always ready to assist you in any way we can, and make sure that you and your family are taken care of.
