Vehicle Accidents in Santa Ana
Car crashes can happen anywhere and to anyone, but with 330,000 people living in Santa Ana, the chance for an accident is even higher. Anyone looking for information about accidents in Santa Ana can read the most recent California Highway Patrol statistics for themselves: in 2011, there were 1,460 collisions which resulted in death or injury, with 146 collisions resulting in pedestrian injury or death. Several news stories have appeared in the last few months about accidents that left drivers and passengers critically injured, from a myriad of causes.
Some of the most common causes of vehicle accidents are:
- Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- Driving too fast or too slow, depending on the road;
- Turning into the wrong lane or at the wrong time;
- Ignoring right-of-way laws; and
- Ignoring traffic lights/signs.
Slip and Fall Accidents in Santa Ana
Slip and fall accidents are a very common personal injury claim. Most of these are caused not by clumsiness or lack of observational powers, but by dangerous walking surfaces—floors newly waxed, carpets that are ragged and torn, or parking lot potholes and the like. Other causes include poorly fitting footwear or footwear with no traction. Very few slip and fall accidents are fraudulent—only around 3%, according to the National Floor Safety Institute.
Despite these facts, slip and fall claims do not often result in large awards, due to the misconceptions mentioned previously, and because of the way that California law is structured. In court, to have a case, you must be able to show that the owner of the premises knew about the dangerous condition, and negligently failed to remedy it. If you cannot prove both parts, juries tend to side with the property owner. The law can be complex in that regard and having a Santa Ana accident lawyer on your side will help.
