Car Accidents in California
Every day, devastating automobile accidents are reported in California. In fact, hundreds of people are hospitalized every single day due to vehicle collisions across our state. Here in the San Jose area, we see countless victims suffer severe spinal cord injuries, skull fractures, soft tissue injuries, and even severe seatbelt injuries following motor vehicle accidents on our roads.
In most cases, these accidents take place due to drivers who are negligent. Drivers who fail to operate their vehicles in a manner that is safe for everyone around them continue to cause harm day after day to innocent people. Victims who are wronged by negligent drivers often have legal options that can help them move forward.
After a car crash, injured victims can seek compensation from the responsible parties by filing personal injury cases. These claims are designed to provide victims with the financial relief that they need for all of the damages resulting from their accidents. To file a claim successfully, a victim will need to demonstrate that the negligent actions of another driver were the cause of the crash. This is done by demonstrating the four elements of negligence existed. These include:
- Duty: The driver owed you a duty of care while operating their vehicle on the road nearby.
- Breach: The driver performed an act that breached the duty.
- Cause: The breach was the cause of your crash.
- Damages: The crash cost you economic and non-economic damages.
Approving these elements with success will help you get the money that you need for your medical expenses and a variety of other damages.
