Car Accidents

Thousands of people are injured after car crashes caused by negligent drivers across California every year. Driving while using a cell phone, driving while tired, driving at a high rate of speed, violating traffic laws; and driving under the influence are some of the avoidable factors that cause traffic collisions.

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 reduced by your percentage of fault.

Family members of the victims can also bring a claim against the negligent parties.
