Types of Car Accident Cases Our Brea Attorneys Handle

Because each car accident case is unique, our attorneys will analyze the particular facts of your case to determine the best course of action. We understand that the same approach will not work for two cases and will craft a strategy that is uniquely tailored to helping you recover. We routinely handle car accident cases caused by the following hazards, among others:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Collisions with commercial trucks
  • Scooter accidents
  • Turo accidents
  • Accidents involving pedestrians
  • Bus accidents
  • Rideshare vehicle accidents
  • Accidents resulting in brain or spinal cord injuries
  • Accidents resulting in wrongful death
  • Other types of car accident cases resulting in major or minor injuries

Identifying Liable Parties

To avoid paying for your damages, insurance companies may claim that you contributed to your accident. Your attorney can help you determine whether this is true and, if so, how it will impact your recovery. A California court may find that you were partially liable for your accident if you:

  • Violated a traffic law
  • Admitted that you were at fault
  • Provided a recorded statement that led to an admission of fault
  • Posted about the accident online
  • Drove while distracted or impaired
  • Otherwise acted in a negligent or reckless manner

If you contributed to your accident, California’s “comparative negligence” law will assign a percentage to your fault and deduct that percentage from the damages you can recover. As such, if a drunk driver collided with you while you illegally ran a red light, you may be considered 50 percent at fault and will recover only 50% of what you otherwise could have. For example, if you stand to recover $100,000, you will recover only $50,000. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are familiar with our State’s comparative negligence law and will work to overcome liability disputes by collecting and producing concrete evidence.  If it turns out that you were partially liable for your car accident, we will take all the necessary steps to minimize your fault percentage so that you can walk away with the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
