Parties who Can File A Car Accident Claim in California
The rule of pure comparative negligence is applied in California by jury or judges to find those at fault. Even drives partially at fault for a crash can bring a claim against other involved individuals. The total rewards one may recover when two or more drivers are found at fault are re reduced by your percentage of fault.
Family members of the victims can also bring a claim against the negligent parties.
