Identifying Liable Parties
To avoid paying for your damages, insurance companies may claim that you contributed to your accident either in part or in full. Your attorney can help you determine whether this is true and, if so, how it will impact your recovery.
A court may find that you were partially liable for your accident if you:
- Violated a traffic law
- Admitted fault
- Provided a recorded statement that led to an admission of fault
- Posted about the accident online
- Drove while distracted or impaired
If a court determines that you contributed to your accident, California law will apply 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 made an illegal left turn, you may be considered 50 percent at fault and will recover only 50% of what you otherwise could have.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are familiar with the law on partial liability. As such, we will work to overcome liability disputes by speaking with eyewitnesses, working with experts, and producing any available physical 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 still walk away with sufficient compensation to be made whole and to move on with your life after a devastating event.
Can I Recover against an Uninsured Driver?
Even if the at-fault party was uninsured, you can still pursue damages – but it may be more difficult. Your personal injury lawyer may advise you to directly sue the other driver. Unfortunately, though, many motorists who can’t afford insurance may not have the means to pay for your damages. In cases like these, our experienced car accident attorneys will sit down with you to discuss your options and will help you determine whether pursuing a lawsuit is worthwhile.
