If You've Been Injured in a Oakland Car Accident...You're Not Alone
According to official data released by the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were 2,118 car accidents in Oakland in 2013, which is the last year for which complete data was published.
A huge number of those accidents were completely avoidable.
In 123 of those cases, alcohol was involved.
And in 287 Oakland car crashes, speed was a major contributing factor.
The OTS wasn't collecting data on distracted driving at the time but safety officials say it is one of the most dangerous habits drivers engage in today. We've all seen someone texting while driving, right?
The sad fact is, after several years of decline, the number of total car accidents in Oakland is on the rise—likely because of distracted driving.
That’s bad news for every good driver who obeys the rules of the road.
It means they have to be even more wary about everyone else around them!
According to CHP statistics there are roughly 240,000 car accidents in California that end with some type of injury every year.
While just a fraction of them result in serious injuries, those injuries requiring ambulance transportation, ER visits, and/or hospital stays can be devastating.
They throw victim’s lives into complete chaos.
It can be overwhelming trying to balance your physical recovery with your family’s financial stability. But don’t give up.
A qualified Oakland auto accident attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve without all the hard work.
Because all you should have to do is concentrate on getting back on the road again.
Somtimes Saying Less is More
It’s an insurance adjuster’s job to pay you as little as possible. That's just an ugly truth.
They may contact you on the phone or in person and appear as if they’re acting on your best behalf.
But they’re not.
One of the worst things a car accident victim like you can do is speak with an adjuster before securing the services of an experienced car accident attorney in Oakland.
Because everything you say to that insurance company can (and probably will) be used to minimize your claim.
Having an experienced lawyer to act as your proxy and deal directly with insurance adjusters is the best way to maximize the amount of money you may be entitled to.
And it will also minimize the amount of hassle you put yourself through.
And that's just a few of the many benefits of working with a qualified Oakland car accident attorney.

$100K POLICY LIMITS SETTLEMENT – Car Accident Case (Rear-End Collision) in Alameda County
A young healthy San Francisco woman was rear ended on Highway 92 in Hayward by an inattentive driver who failed to see that all traffic on the freeway ahead of her was stopped. The driver caused a car crash and the young woman's car at approximately 60 MPH. The impact caused the client to hit her head on the steering wheel. She suffered a laceration that required stitches. She also lost recollection of events immediately following the accident, but fortunately did not suffer any serious head injury or brain injury.
She was really stressed out about the accident, as she had recently gotten a new job, and could not afford to miss work, let alone try to handle her own car accident claim with the insurance companies. She didn't know what to do, so she started researching online and found the Oakland personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law. She was so grateful to be able to hand over the claim, all documents, bills and her stress to the Sally Morin Law team.
Sally and her team were able to quickly get the other driver's insurance company to cough up the $100,000 insurance policy limits*. The client gladly accepting this amount and was able to move on with her life. *Prior to acceptance of the policy limits offer, Sally's team confirmed that the negligent driver had no significant assets from which to recover further settlement monies.
