In California alone, almost 200,000 people are injured every year. Tens of thousands of dollars can be spent on medical bills, lost wages, and car repair bills for victims of car accidents in California.

Injuries and damages caused by the driver at fault for causing the collision are the responsibility of the driver at fault. The driver who caused the car accident determines the fault in California car accidents. In some cases, the injury victim may still be able to recover some damages from the other driver, even when both drivers are at fault.

Accidents involving vehicles in California are not always caused by negligent drivers. Automobile defects, hazardous road conditions, and malfunctions of driverless vehicles can also cause collisions. Manufacturers of vehicles or parts or governments may be responsible for these crashes.

An auto accident attorney may be necessary if you suffer damages as a result of a vehicle accident. In order to get the liable party to pay money damages, attorneys may need to file a personal injury lawsuit.

A car accident injury lawsuit may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, lost income, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

Party At Fault

It can be difficult to determine who is at fault in a California vehicle accident. Generally, a party’s fault is based on “negligence.” When a driver is negligent and causes an injury, the negligent driver may be liable for any damages. A car accident attorney can be instrumental in building a case that the other party was negligent.

Careless driving is an example of negligence. This involves not paying attention to other road users. A violation of a traffic law may constitute "negligence per se.". There are several factors that commonly cause motor vehicle accidents:

If both drivers were negligent, an accident may be partially their fault. According to California's "comparative fault" law, an injured driver may still receive compensation even if both drivers share some of the blame. Depending on how much the driver is at fault, the damages may be reduced.

Compensatory Damages

Compensatory Damages

Injury victims suffer losses and damages when they are involved in a car wreck. A plaintiff (victim of a car accident) asks for maximum compensation from the negligent party when filing a personal injury claim.

As part of a personal injury case, economic and non-economic compensation damages are awarded. Damages that have a monetary value, such as medical bills and car repairs, are considered economic damages. In addition to economic damages, non-economic damages can include pain and suffering caused by the crash.
