Santa Ynez Auto Accidents Lawyer

According to the California Highway Patrol, 2,739 persons were killed in auto accidents in 2010, and 229,354 more were injured. This means that on average, one person was injured in a motor vehicle accident every two minutes and 17 seconds. From Lompoc, Santa Ynez and even Paso Robles, the Santa Ynez automobile accident attorneys at James McKiernan Lawyers help people all along the Central Coast who have been injured in automobile accidents to recover compensation for their injuries from careless and negligent drivers or other responsible parties.

Important Information About Santa Ynez Auto Accidents

California law requires all drivers to carry proof of financial responsibility in the event they are to blame in causing a car accident. Most people meet this requirement by carrying liability insurance to cover them in case of a crash. The minimum liability limits in the law are 15/30/5 – $15,000 for personal injury to one person, $30,000 for personal injury to more than one person, and $5,000 for property damage. Obviously, if any kind of serious injury has occurred, then these minimum amounts may not be sufficient to cover the injured person’s medical expenses and other damages.

With truck accidents in particular, we frequently see auto versus truck collisions that cause significant damage exceeding these minimum policy limits. There are, however, situations where insurers can be made to pay more than the policy limits or where your own insurance can make up for an uninsured or under insured driver. Our experienced car accident attorneys in Santa Ynez are familiar with all of the options available to maximize recoveries for victims of auto accidents.
