Car Accidents in California
Car crashes occur every day in California that have devastating consequences for those involved. Regrettably, we see tens of thousands of accidents occur each year that result in life-altering injuries for victims.
Some of the most debilitating injuries reported in crashes across our state include:
- Spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis
- Internal organ injuries that require immediate care
- Bone fractures that can be debilitating
- Traumatic brain injuries
These and other severe injuries often force victims into local hospitals for emergency care and can rewire months of therapy and rehabilitation. In the event that you suffered injuries as a result of another driver’s negligence, you may be able to pursue legal action.
In order to prevail, you will need to demonstrate that some form of negligence contributed to the accident taking place. This can include that a driver was operating their vehicle while impaired. Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause serious accidents that leave victims of debilitating injuries. Another form of negligence often seen in motor vehicle accidents is speeding. When drivers are traveling too fast, they are likely to lose control of their vehicles and strike others. Other forms of negligence can include failing to yield, switching recklessly between lanes, tailgating, and even running red lights.
After proving negligence existed, you must be able to demonstrate the damages that you have suffered as a result of the crash that was caused by the act of negligence. This can include anything like medical expenses, lost wages, and even your vehicle repair costs. Proving your damages can help to ensure that you are able to maximize your recovery. However, in California, damages are awarded to victims based on comparative negligence laws. If you shared any fault for the accident, the amount of damages you are rewarded could be reduced in proportion to the fault that you shared.
