- Reckless driving
- Drunk/drugged driving
- Fatigued driving
- Highway defects
- Vehicle defects
- Unsafe construction sites

Injuries Arising From I-5 Accidents
Although all motorists in California have a duty of care to operate their vehicles in a safe manner and avoid causing injuries to others, Interstate 5 accidents result in all types of injuries, such as:
- Back and neck injuries
- Organ damage
- Loss of limb
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
At J&Y, we understand that the pain and suffering, lost wages, and mounting medical expenses can become an overwhelming burden. We are here to help lift that burden by providing you with powerful representation when you need it most. Money may not undo the harm you have endured, but it will provide vital resources to aid in your recovery and lend stability to your financial future.
Damages You Can Recover in an Interstate 5 Accident
Although no two interstate accidents are the same, you may be entitled to significant compensation that includes:
- Medical, surgical, and rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages, present and future
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Permanent disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Property damage
If a loved one has been killed in an Interstate 5 accident, you can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages such as funeral expenses, final medical costs, and loss of support. Though money cannot replace a loved one, compensation will provide you with justice and peace of mind, knowing that the responsible party has been held accountable.
