How long does it take you to commute to work? Do you dread getting in your vehicle every morning and every evening? Do you leave home earlier than necessary just to avoid some of the traffic of rush hour?

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Americans spend an average of 25 minutes commuting to work each day. For some, a 25-minute commute sounds like a dream, especially for those who are locked in the gridlock of rush hour. A 25-minute commute can quickly turn into an hour or longer if there is an accident or just heavy traffic.

When some drivers are stuck in traffic caused by rush hour, they become agitated and aggressive. These drivers begin weaving in and out of traffic, follow too closely, or engage in other acts of road rage. Therefore, rush hour increases your risk of being involved in a traffic accident because many drivers lose their patience and become negligent, reckless drivers. Some drivers may not drive aggressively on purpose, but they become frustrated with the rush hour traffic and forget to be cautious.

If you have been injured in a rush hour accident, call (916) 999-9000 to schedule a free appointment with a Sacramento rush hour accident attorney.

Holding a Driver Responsible for A Rush Hour Car Accident

Regardless of the traffic, all drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. When a careless or negligent driver causes a rush hour accident, that driver should be held responsible for the damages he or she causes. Accident victims can suffer serious injuries that result in thousands of dollars in medical costs. In addition to the medical costs, accident victims suffer other damages including lost wages, property damage, emotional suffering, and physical pain.

To recover compensation for a rush hour car accident, you must file a claim against the other driver’s insurance. You must prove that the other driver did something to cause the collision and you sustained injuries because of the crash. If you cannot prove liability for the crash, you cannot recover compensation for your damages.

Therefore, it is important that you retain an experienced Sacramento car accident attorney as quickly as possible to help you gather the evidence you need to prove responsibility in a rush hour car accident. You deserve to be made financially whole again after a car accident and be compensated for your pain and suffering.

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
