He may play ball across the Bay, but he is a fan favorite here, too. The other day, Stephen Curry was involved in a vehicle accident. It was not his fault and this accident serves to highlight the unpredictability of driving on roadways in and around the city.

The accident happened after a Lexus spun out as it was leaving the Caldecott tunnel and made contact with Curry’s Porsche. After that, Curry’s car was also struck from behind by another vehicle.

The Numbers

California is the most populated state in the country and we have our fair share of accidents. While the most only result in property damage, we need to let you know that even minor injuries can result in unaffordable medical bills. Whiplash and other bumps and bruises need to be taken care of by a doctor. If your insurance will not cover that, those visits could easily become bills for thousands of dollars.

A family living paycheck to paycheck cannot take on that extra burden.

Vehicle accidents in California resulted in more than 12,000 serious injuries during the latest reporting year. Many of those were:

  • Spinal cord injuries (often with paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Major bone breaks or dislocations
  • Internal organ damage and bleeding

With these kinds of injuries, rehabilitation times can be tremendous and people are often left with permanent disabilities. The medical costs can rise into the hundreds of thousands of dollars that insurance companies will fight covering.

If the accident victim is the main income earner for the family and they can no longer work, how will the bills get paid?

Why They Happen

Most vehicle accidents occur due to driver error. Often, those who suffer serious injuries are hurt as a result of:

Regardless of how another person causes your injuries, they should be held accountable for their actions.

What Are Your Options

After an accident, your focus needs to be on healing and making sure your expenses are covered. Unfortunately, insurance companies may not have your best interests at heart. They may try to get you to settle for an amount that will not cover all of your accident-related costs.

At Allegiance Law, our knowledgeable and experienced team is ready to step in and fight back. If someone else caused your injuries, there is no reason for you or your family to be in financial jeopardy. We will work to secure the compensation you deserve.
