San Diego Car Accident Information

According to the most recent (2008) California Highway Patrol statistics for San Diego County there were 13,527 injury accidents, with 246 fatalities. According to the statistics, 6,123 of those injury accidents and 81 of the fatalities, occurred within the San Diego city limits.

With the crowded roads, frequent unsafe conditions, and thousands of tourists unfamiliar with the area, it’s only a matter of time before you may be involved (or know someone who is involved) in a serious accident.

If You Are in an Auto Accident

Following serious San Diego car accidents, you should seek medical attention immediately. The documentation of injuries will be important to the case. Sometimes symptoms of serious injuries will not present themselves for several days. As soon as you are out of the hospital you should move to protect your interests by contacting our San Diego car accident lawyers.

The sooner we start an investigation, the better your chances are for a full financial recovery. Important evidence can be lost or forgotten with time. In serious injury cases, we can come to your home or hospital.

Recovering Compensation in Auto Accidents Cases

If your injuries are serious, you may be able to seek compensation via a personal injury lawsuit. There are some steps that must be taken to ensure you recover the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to. At Aitken * Aitken * Cohn, we know the laws governing highway safety in California and know what to look for. We will evaluate all the evidence in your case, examine witness testimonies, and do everything in our power to ensure a fair outcome.
