Despite the many technological and medical breakthroughs in the last 100 years, car accidents remain one on the largest sources of injuries and fatalities in California. If you do get into a car accident, the best thing you can do for yourself is to seek legal advice quickly. An experienced auto accident attorney will help you avoid mistakes when dealing with insurance companies and other parties.
Victims of car accidents are entitled to compensation for property damage, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and for permanent injury or disfigurement.
In California, you can still recover money following an auto accident if you are partially at fault thanks to the theory of comparative negligence. Instead of barring you from recovering money, comparative negligence reduces your recovery in proportion to your percentage of fault. Some damages, such as medical bills, are still recoverable in their full amount, even if you are partially responsible for the accident.
