Fresno has a reputation for bad drivers. In fact, QuoteWizard ranked it as the nation’s 15th worst driving city, and the 5th worst for DUIs. The Fresno Police Department’s 2017 Annual Report noted 52 traffic fatalities in 2017, up from 33 in 2016 and 28 in 2012. An Allstate report ranked drivers in 200 cities to gauge collision frequency. According to the report, a Fresno driver is in a collision every 8.7 years, while in Kansas City (which has the safest drivers according to Allstate), a driver may be in a collision every 14.9 years.

In 2016, 2,087 accidents occurred in Fresno County involving bicycles, motorcycles, and pedestrians. (63 were bicyclists and 100 were pedestrians) There were 112 total fatalities, while 4,283 people were injured. Rear end and broadside collisions were most common types of accidents involving motor vehicles.

Common Accidents in Fresno

Whether you need a general injury attorney or bicycle accident lawyer, The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani can help following these common types of accidents:

Bicycle Accidents: There were 63 bicyclists injured in accidents during 2016 in Fresno County. Bicyclists are often struck by vehicles making left turns or drivers who don’t see them, while many are at risk due to habits such as speeding, riding too close to traffic, or riding on the sidewalk. Collisions can throw a person from their bicycle and cause cuts, scrapes, broken bones, and head injuries even if one is wearing a helmet.

Car Accidents: About 2,767 drivers were victims of accidents in the county during 2016, while 1,454 were passengers. The most common collision factors include improper turning, automobile right-of-way issues, driving under the influence, and ignoring traffic signals and signs. Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injuries such as bruises, broken bones, and whiplash as well as traumatic brain injuries. Our Fresno car accident lawyers can determine who is liable and can fight insurance companies to help you receive a fair settlement to compensate for lost wages, medical costs, and pain and suffering.

Pedestrian Accidents: Of the 100 pedestrian accidents in 2016, 35 involved a pedestrian violation and 20 a pedestrian right-of-way. About 3% of crashes involved pedestrians. While motorists are often at fault, pedestrians who are drunk, cross against traffic, and disobey traffic signals are at a high risk of getting into an accident. Jaywalking (at any time of the day) or wearing dark clothes at night can put them at risk as well.

DUI Accidents: Alcohol as well as prescription, over-the-counter, and illicit drugs can impair an individual’s ability to drive. The Fresno Police Department reported a 13% decrease in DUI-related collisions in 2017, but driving under the influence is still a concern, as it is anywhere in the nation. It puts motorists, passengers, and others at risk as a driver is unable to respond as quickly to changes in their environment. It’s also possible they may not be paying attention to the road at all.

Other types of accidents are common in the local area. If you or a loved one experiences any of the following, our personal injury attorney in Fresno can represent you:

Bus Accidents: Injure passengers, who may or may not have seat belts; motorists (the size of a bus puts them at greater risk for severe injuries); and pedestrians.

Defective Products: A manufacturing defect, malfunction, or missing safety label can lead to an injury of an unsuspecting consumer.

Dog Bites & Animal Attacks: Ranging from minor cuts to deep wounds and infections, a bite or attack is often severely traumatizing, and sometimes the pet owner’s responsibility.

Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists don’t have the protection other motorists do; head, bone, and limb injuries are common and those who don’t wear helmets are most at risk.

Electric Scooter Accidents: Scooter use is increasing in California, but recklessness, failure to see riders, and defective vehicles, parts, and batteries raise the accident risk.

Medical Malpractice: Failure to diagnose a disease, nursing home abuse, and surgical mistakes are just a few examples our Fresno accident injury attorney can take on.

Premises Liability: Ranges from slip and fall accidents on a neighbor’s property to failure to warn of dangers in a store, to major construction accidents.

Rideshare Accidents: We can take on rideshare companies and their insurers who try to avoid liability and will hold negligent drivers liable for injuries and damages.

Truck Accidents: Large tractor-trailers can cause extreme damage to cars; accidents may be a driver’s, company’s, distributor’s, inspector’s, mechanic’s, or part manufacturer’s fault.

Workers Compensation: Proving an employer was at fault for an on-the-job injury can be a challenge, but we’ll represent you in the most challenging of cases.

In the past year, I

In the past year, I was involved in two personal injury accidents. Auto and Pedestrian. At first I went to different law firm and signed up. After couple weeks in, that law firm rushed me through the process , did nothing and took $7600 of my settlement money and want me to settled under six months. I didn’t follow through and found out Jacob Emrani law firm with more experiences. This firm helped me to settled with larger settlements. Jacob Emrani and his team support me every steps of the way. For those involved in personal injuries, please understand that you must have patience for best results and Jacob and his team is your go to firm. Small law firm can’t do what this team does. Average people without any knowledges of auto accident, insurance carriers, and/or medical experiences are too hastily assumed that everything happens with a snap of a finger or I want it now. Well, it doesn’t. Rome wasn’t built in a day and so as this process. Court case takes even longer. People with negative reviews is because they don’t understand the system and all they do is blames and complaint or fired the firm that working hard for them behind close doors. When you quit and go to another firm, all you do is waste more time, waste more of your settlement reward to another firm in fees and costs. ALl you have to do is be patience and Jacob team will takes care of you. These case managers handles couple of dozen of case everyday and all the time. These attorney work their butts off on the phone and in court fight for you to get each client the best settlement. One case are not with the same result to next case. So when people calls into the office all day long for status, demands for answer, or angry because not moving with the speed the person want does not mean case managers or attorneys ignoring you. Email them, fastest response time. They only moves as fast as insurance carriers, medicals providers, and hospitals. These insurance companies are not just going to cough up money to you just because you got hit. They need time to investigate, this process takes time, case managers only goes as fast as these people move, they fights against these adjusters for you to get the best settlement for your case. So, please be PATIENCE!!! and give them time to work on your case. DON”T QUIT. Don’t go to another firm just because you have no patience and all you do is throw your settlement money away to another attorney and your case literally start from scratch, more time waste. Jacob Emrani, his attorneys, case managers, and the all the staffs are a great team and with tremendous experiences. Put your trust in them and be patience. Final Results. $$$$$$$.
