Understanding More About California Car Accident Claims:

Car accidents are one of the primary causes of personal injury cases throughout the state and the nation. When one driver causes injury to another driver, and their auto insurance doesn't fully cover the victim's losses (for injuries and damages), the victim can file a personal injury claim to recover the outstanding damages. The most common causes of car accidents in California include distracted driving, speeding, moving violations, and aggressive driving.

What Creates the Basis for a Successful Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is based on an individual's negligence or failure to act with reasonable care in a situation. When filing a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant had a duty of care, failed to uphold that duty of care and that their failure to uphold their duty of care resulted in the plaintiff's injuries/damages. The plaintiff must have suffered actual harm or a measurable loss to file a successful personal injury claim.
