Proving Your Claim
Before you can recover damages, you need to know who was at fault. In California, you can bring a claim against the at-fault party for your medical expenses and injuries. To show that the other driver was at fault, your attorney will need to argue:
- That the other driver owed you a duty of care as a fellow motorist on the California roads;
- The driver failed to fulfill this duty in some way by driving negligently
- or recklessly, violating the traffic laws, or otherwise failing to stay vigilant on the roads;
- The other driver’s negligence caused the crash; and
- You sustained injuries, property damage, or other losses in the crash.
If you work with us, we will investigate your accident and gather as much evidence as possible to support your claim. Examples of the type of evidence we will gather include:
- Photos of the accident scene
- Surveillance camera footage
- Dashcam footage
- Eye witness testimony
- Expert testimony
- Physical objects
Our team will use this evidence to prove the other party’s negligence, to show the seriousness of your injuries and property damage, and to craft a strong argument as to why you are entitled to the maximum amount of compensation available by law.
What If It Was My Fault?
Sometimes, accident victims are partially responsible for their injuries. However, in many cases, you can still recover damages even if you contributed to the accident. As such, you should always reach out to a personal injury lawyer before dismissing your own case.
When accident victims are partially responsible for their injuries, California law applies a percentage to their fault and deducts it from their total damages. For instance, if you are deemed 50 percent at fault, then if you normally would stand to recover $10,000 in damages, you will only recover $5,000. This is known as the law of pure comparative negligence.
While insurance companies will go to great lengths to protect themselves, you can confidently turn to us. We will fight to ensure you receive a fair settlement and if you don’t, we can take your case to trial. To meet with one of our personal injury attorneys, give us a call at 1-800-GO-HARRIS today.
