Get Compensation After A Car Accident
Being involved in an auto accident is a frightening experience that can drastically change your life. A car accident can cause debilitating physical injuries, emotional trauma and costly property damage. Furthermore, a serious car accident injury that prevents you from returning to your job (or that limits the number of hours you can work) can be financially devastating. Even a car accident at low speed or one that doesn’t result in much damage to your car can cause injuries.
Protect Your Rights
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s important to take steps to protect your legal rights before it’s too late. If you’ve recently been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, the car accident attorneys at The Belli Law Firm can help you by:
- Investigating your accident to compile evidence
- Negotiating on your behalf with the other driver’s insurance company or helping you file for uninsured motorist benefits under your own insurance policy
- Filing and pursuing a lawsuit on your behalf if negotiations don’t lead to a successful settlement
Auto accidents generally represent the greatest number of personal injury actions that are filed and can include numerous types of actions, including accidents caused when a driver ran a red light, rear-ended a driver or failed to yield the right of way.
When a person is injured as a result of the fault of another, he or she is entitled to fair compensation for that injury. Our car accident lawyers at The Belli Law Firm can help you find peace of mind after your accident so that you can move forward with your life. We can match the huge legal resources that insurance companies use to delay, deny or even defeat the rights of those who are injured.
Fog-Related Vehicle Accidents: Know Your Legal Options
Fog-related car accidents are returning to California’s Central and Sacramento valleys following an increase in the occurrence of “Tule fog.” on The Belli Law Firm is available to assist car and truck accident victims who have been involved in fog-related accidents on Highway 46, Interstate 5, Highway 99, Highway 198, Highway 41 or one of the other numerous state highways and local roads.
Between November and March, California’s Central and Sacramento valleys often fill with a type of thick ground fog known as “Tule fog.” Winter rains create moisture in the air, and then the long winter nights cool the ground. The moisture in the air condenses and forms fog. Though Tule fog helps nourish many of central California’s fruit and nut orchards, it creates dangerous driving conditions. Visibility inside a bank of Tule fog is usually less than 600 feet, but may drop as low as zero.
According to the Federal Highway Administration, fog causes an average of 31,385 crashes in the United States every year. Those crashes result in 511 deaths and 11,812 injuries on average. By contrast, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fatality statistics (recorded between 2004 and 2013), heat kills 123 Americans per year, tornadoes 109, floods 75 and lightning 33. The risks associated with driving in foggy conditions should not be underestimated.
