Types of Cases our Auto Accident Attorneys Handle
In our experience, we’ve found the most common causes of car accidents to be:
- Drunk driving accidents
- Distracted driving accidents
- Collisions with commercial trucks
- Scooter accidents
- Accidents involving pedestrians
- Bus accidents
- Rideshare vehicle accidents
- Accidents resulting in brain or spinal cord injury
- Accidents resulting in wrongful death
Let us know if you’ve been involved in any of these situations – or in other situations involving fellow drivers on the California highways.
What If It Was My Fault?
The reality is that sometimes, accident victims are partially responsible for their own injuries. Perhaps a drunk driver hit you, but you weren’t paying attention when the light turned green. Or, maybe you collided with a speeding vehicle while making an illegal left turn.
Before you write off your case, however, reach out to an attorney. In California, you can still pursue damages even if you were partially responsible for your accident. California law will simply apply a percentage to your fault and deduct that percentage from the damages you can recover. For example, if you stood to recover $10,000 but were 50% at fault, you would recover $5,000.
Our attorneys understand the law of partial liability and will take all necessary steps to minimize your fault percentage. Our goal is to help you walk away with the compensation you need to recover physically, emotionally, and financially.
What If the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured, you can still pursue damages, but unfortunately, it is less likely that you will recover. Many drivers who lack – or don’t bother to apply for – car insurance may not have the money to pay for your damages, so suing them directly may be futile. Our car accident attorneys will help you determine whether pursuing a lawsuit is worthwhile.
Fortunately, though, your uninsured motorist bodily injury (UMBI) coverage should pay benefits for injuries you sustain in a wreck with an uninsured driver. This also applies if you carry uninsured motorist property damage (UMPD) coverage, which will help cover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle.
