If the vehicle hits your car from the rear, it causes a jerk to your neck and head, tearing muscles. This type of injury commonly occurs during rear-end collisions.

Head Injuries or Concussions

Head injuries during car accidents are often severe and need close monitoring. Initially, they may appear mild, but they can transform into traumatic brain injuries such as hematoma that require medical attention and treatment.

Scrapes and Cuts

These are typical injuries that most people experience after car accidents. They can result from flying debris or even airbag deployment. Many cuts aren't too severe, while others may need stitches.

Broken Bones

Car accidents can happen due to different reasons.

They can be a result of the following:

  • Negligence of traffic rules by the driver
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement Weather
  • Failure of any car part
  • Traffic lights failure
  • Essential traffic signs non-existence

Generally, according to California's statute of limitations, you can file your injury claims after a car accident within two years from the accident date. However, if your injury results from traffic signs or lights malfunctioning, you have only six months to file your compensation claim to the relevant government agency. Due to this short time frame, you must immediately contact a licensed, registered, and experienced Newport Beach car accident lawyer. Once the deadline is missed, you will not have another opportunity to file a car accident claim.

Distracted driving


The liability theory applied in most car accident cases is negligence. For recovery under the claim of negligence, your Newport Beach car accident attorney should show that the injured party owes a responsibility to the defendant to refrain from any negligent act and to prove liability the defendant has breached this duty.

Due to this breach of duty, the injured party experienced damage resulting in incalculable harm. Our Newport Beach car accident attorney will have in-depth knowledge of the laws and hands-on experience dealing with such cases. Accordingly, we prove the negligence of the defendant party based on a duty of care, breach of duty, damages, causation, and comparative negligence.

Our experts adopt a personalized, aggressive, and efficient approach to your case to ensure optimal results.


Sometimes multiple parties are involved in a car accident, and whether you're underinsured or have uninsured motorist coverage, an expert car accident attorney can handle the complexities of an insurance claim. While proving the other party's negligence is sometimes quite simple, it needs a thorough analysis of the involved legal aspects and applicable laws in most cases.

Whatever the case, contacting qualified, knowledgeable, and experienced Newport Beach car accident lawyers can save you from the stress of dealing with all the complicated details and insurance company adjusters. This allows you to have complete peace of mind and deserve maximum compensation for sustained injury.
