Cerritos, California, has about 150 yearly accidents in a city with a population of about 50,000. That is good enough to rank it 87 out of 106 cities and towns of similar residential numbers. However, there is no reason those figures can’t be lowered. And while 150 fatal or injury-causing accidents may seem like a small number overall, it feels a lot bigger if you are one of them.
Of those 150 accidents, only one of them was reported to have involved drunk driving. Pedestrians were involved in seven accidents while bicyclists were in four of them.

Cerritos, CA Dangerous Intersections
Do I have to take my car to the shop the insurance company wants me to use?
No, you can have your vehicle fixed by any repair shop you’d like. Although going with the auto insurance companies recommended repair shop, they may have contracted lower rates for repairing your vehicle. It’s best to speak with an experienced car accident lawyer to help you through this process.
How do I get my car fixed after my car accident?
When you are in an auto accident, the at-fault party will end up paying for your vehicle to get fixed, subject to their policy limits. They will assign an insurance adjuster to your case and provide you with an estimate to cover the amount to get your car fixed or totaled. It would be best if you spoke with your lawyer to ensure they walk you through this process and that your rights are protected.
Does your law firm accept wrong death lawsuits?
Yes, at The Accident Guys, we have experience with wrongful death car accidents. Let our team of legal professionals guide you through the process. We handle wrongful death accidents involving motorcycles, bicycles, semi-trucks, work vehicles, or any other motor vehicle.
Can I receive compensation from the driver’s employer?
Yes in certain situations, if the driver was working at the time of the accident, there is a good chance we may be able to seek compensation from the employer business insurance. It is best to consult one of our personal injury attorneys so they can find the best course of action for your specific case.
What happens if the driver that hit me was an Uber or Lyft driver?
It will depend on whether the driver was on his way to pick up a passenger, or had a passenger in his or her car at the time of the accident. The good news is that rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft must carry additional insurance on their drivers. This insurance covers personal injury and property damage claims when their drivers are at-fault for a car accident. Even if you were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, we could handle your case for your injuries and medical bills. Again, these situations are very fact specific and unique, so it’s best to speak with an accident attorney before you speak with the insurance companies.
What happens if the person that hit me has no insurance?
If the at-fault driver has no car insurance, you can file an uninsured motorist claim using your own insurance coverage. If you use your own uninsured motorist coverage, your rates should not go up because you were not at fault. In this situation, it is best to consult with an accident attorney to find the best course of action for your claim.
They helped me settle a case 7 months ago. It was my first accident and the process was easy. They settled for more than was expected. I’ve recommended them to friends and family. I would definitely contact them if I were involved in a second accident.

I was in a vehicle accident while pregnant, the last thing on my mind was dealing with the details of the accident. The only thought on my mind was the well being of my unborn child and also myself. The Accident Guys held my hand throughout the entire process. They promptly settled on my behalf. My baby and I are doing well. I was able to spoil my daughter with the settlement that was awarded. Can’t thank The Accident Guys enough.

The Accident Guys were awesome with my accident claim. This was my serious first accident, I was in shock, experiencing pain and wasn’t sure what to do. I called The Accident Guys on a Friday and by Saturday, I had a doctors appointment scheduled, to confirm why I was in pain and how they could assist in getting me back to normal. My claim was a roller coaster with my own insurance company and The Accident Guys went above and beyond, my settlement was above what I expected, if I’m ever in another accident, they will be my first call.
