Serious car accidents can derail your life. Here in Buttonwillow, our team at Chain | Cohn | Clark understands how complicated things can become mentally, physically, and financially after an auto accident.
We also know that insurance companies aren’t usually looking out for your best interests. More often than not, insurance companies refuse to offer full and fair compensation. But our Buttonwillow attorneys have the skillset and experience to help you obtain the compensation you and your loved ones deserve.
Our team can smoothly steer your case through the settlement process and, should it become necessary, all the way to trial.
Large settlements are often the byproduct of catastrophic car accident injuries. Results can come easy if both parties are honest and act in good faith. The problem, however, is that most insurance companies do not fairly serve the injured party, meaning they act in bad faith.
The knowledgeable attorneys at Chain | Cohn | Clark have represented all types of car accidents cases in and around Buttonwillow. Our years of experience with these kinds of cases put us far ahead of the curve when it comes to crash accidents. We can guide you through each step of the process to ensure a final settlement that best serves you and your loved ones.

Major types of car accidents include DUIs, reckless driving, and driving while tired.
There are few things more horrifying than drunk driving statistics in the United States. Between 2010 and 2019, on average, over 10,000 people died in alcohol related car accidents each year. In 2019, almost a quarter of young drivers ages 15 to 20 who died in car crashes had a blood alcohol level of .01 g/dL or higher.
As an at-fault state, California allows you to pursue damages against a drunk driver to the fullest extent.
Texting or talking on the phone while operating a vehicle are the most common forms of distracted driving. Driving while using a cellphone is illegal in the state of California. Below is a list of other common forms of distracted driving:
In 2019, 9% of fatal crashes, 15% of injury crashes, and 15% of all police-reported motor vehicle traffic crashes were reported as incidents of distracted driving.
Driving recklessly in California is deemed a misdemeanor. California state law defines reckless driving as when “a person who drives a vehicle upon a highway in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.”
You can receive up to 90 days in jail or a fine of up to $1,000 for reckless driving. Here are three main examples of reckless driving:
Tired drivers resulted in almost 700 deaths in 2019. This kind of driving typically occurs during long road trips when people aren’t getting enough sleep.
Drivers most at risk for tired driving include commercial drivers, graveyard shift workers, drivers under 25, and drivers with sleeping disorders. In Buttonwillow, we can take charge of your case and uncover all of the necessary details to help you gain full and fair compensation.

After an accident, your adrenaline will be pumping and you may not realize something is wrong. Serious complications can take months to make their way into the forefront of your life, which is why we recommend you always have a full medical exam after any serious car accident. It may save your life.
