Held in October, The Big Fresno Fair attracts over 600,000 visitors annually.

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.
