Ways of Getting Injured in San Diego

San Diego is filled with many careless and inattentive people who are sight seeing, stuck in traffic, or drunk from a night in the Gas-lamp District. It is the second largest city in California, and has even been nicknamed the “Birthplace of California.”

This is a town where a person can get injured by inter alia:

  • Drunk college kids drinking and driving
  • A startled animal at Sea World, or on the many attractions and rides
  • An illegal alien driver with no liability insurance or driver’s license
  • Para gliding crashes over or near UCSD
  • Nudist perverts at Black’s Beach
  • STD’s from a female exotic dancer

Car Accidents Are Our Greatest Daily Threat in San Diego

Of course the most common injuries among civilians are traditional passenger car accidents, and the most noteworthy are:

  • Taxi cab or Uber Ride-sharing hit and run collision,
  • Military motorcycle rider v. auto collisions,
  • Passenger train v. auto collisions,
  • Tour or military bus v. auto collisions,
  • Distracted driving and intersection accidents,
  • Big rig truck versus smaller vehicle accidents.

With trucks for example, shipping and receiving is a huge business in the port of San Diego area, which means there are a lot of 18 wheelers ingressing and egressing Mexico and the U.S. 24 hours a day up and down the 5 and 805 freeways. Of course, these large trucks have blind spots and are often manned by rushed, sleepy drivers who are working on a “sink or swim budget.”

This doesn’t mean you are going to get in a wreck, but it does mean your chances increase the more you are surrounded by large vehicles such as 18 wheelers. And there are still many other ways to get hurt or have your life taken in this touristy town.

Personal Injuries and San Diego Go Hand in Hand

This is a popular town for senior retired people as well, many of them retired military vets with disabilities, both mental and physical. This can also be seen by the explosion in the need for nursing care specialists and other caretakers.

  • Great Weather Means More Attractions and Distractions

The city ranks as the eighth largest city in the United States, it has been ranked by the Weather Channel and Farmers’ Almanac as having one of the best climates. This means there are constantly bike riders out there, as well as joggers, Roller-bladers, and skateboards out on the public streets.

Downtown has a pretty quiet train system that can sneak right up on a person if they’re not especially cautious. The locals know to stay clear of the tracks that run along pedestrian routes of passage. But unfamiliar visitors are vulnerable.

The Risk of San Diego Traffic Accidents is Compounded By Tourism

This risk of traffic accidents in general is increased when you consider that the city boasts a natural deep-water harbor, has world famous beaches and a low violent crime rate. The place is a magnet for patriotic families with kids.

Tourist related mishaps are a strong possibility. After all, when you think about it, San Diego is home to the largest United States naval fleet worldwide and home of the U.S.S. Midway.

How Can Ehline Law San Diego Help You?

Our firm’s primary job is helping victims who are badly hurt, or admitted into hospitals due to the negligence of another.  This town is in fact a Mecca for fun, relaxation, as well as tragic events like fatalities from drowning, for example.

This means you could be in pain, mourning, in a foreign place far from home and clueless as to what steps to take. We not only know those steps, we take them swiftly and with esprit de corps. So what do we do right now, as soon as you hire us?

We will immediately:

  • Console you and let you feel at ease and protected
  • Treat you like friend and not just some file
  • Tell the insurance company to leave you alone
  • Send out demand for preservation of evidence letters
  • Contact your medical provider(s), or even help you find one
  • Order copies of traffic collision reports, and other reports

Our primary goal is to get badly hurt casualties large amounts of money for:

  • Past, current and far off pain, suffering
  • Medical costs
  • Restoration for the losses of contracts, wages and other expectancy and more. This is because things like the objects of contracts are what would have ripened and flourished if not but for the negligence of the person, or persons that hurt you.

In order to maximize the potential sources of money to pay you, we make the best efforts to track down evidence and witnesses like:

  • Store employees
  • Bystanders
  • Physical evidence
  • Surveillance tapes

As stated, we send out Preservation of Evidence Letters and do everything else possible to maintain and increase the value of your potential lawsuit in the eyes of those who will be viewing and hearing the facts, like judges, adjustors and jurors. After all, they ultimately could be deciding in the future what you recover as a financial award for the damages you are suffering from your mishap.

Once our vulnerable, crestfallen clients see us in action, they immediately feel a sense of assurance and hope that our attorneys are in this fight for them and them alone. Ehline Law Firm PC also utilizes the latest technology available, including:

  • Sophisticated software
  • Specialized legal databases
  • Personal injury attorney list-serve networks and any other resources at their disposal.

This allows Ehline Law to prepare a case that is convincing at negotiations, mediation, arbitration and at trial. This allows the firm to provide the best possible representation for personal injury clients who want something more than an average attorney.

The Importance of Resources in Winning an Injury Case

Ehline Law Firm PC is equipped with the backing to investigate the accident the client was involved, with the use of experts, in even the most complex and expensive litigation cases. Hiring a lawyer without the financial resources to investigate every element of a case is a bad idea. They may feel the need to settle your case early, which means you could recover lower compensation than you deserve.

As always, we do this on our dime and wait to be paid back until the case is over. What this means to you, is that you are no out-of-pocket costs up front, and that your attorney doesn’t eat, if he doesn’t get you a win. Those are great odds!
