Types of Car Accident Cases Our 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 actionWe 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 

What If I Caused The Accident?

 Your attorney can help you determine whether you contributed to your accident in any way and, if so, how it will impact the damages you can collect. You may be partially liable for your accident if you:

  • Broke a traffic law 
  • Admitted fault 
  • Provided a recorded statement that led to an admission of fault 
  • Posted about the accident online  
  • Drove while distracted 
  • Drove while drunk or under the influence of controlled substances 

In these cases, California law applies a percentage to your fault and deducts that percentage from the damages you can recover. For instance, if another driver hit you while you made an illegal left turn, you may be considered 50 percent at fault. As a result, your damages award would be reduced by 50 percent. In other words, if you were entitled to $10,000, you would only recover $5,000. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are familiar with the law on partial liability and will use the best strategy possible to overcome liability disputes. We will gather evidence, speak with eyewitnesses, work closely with experts, and strive to help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries. If it turns out that you were partially liable for the crash, we will take all necessary steps to minimize your fault percentage so that you can still walk away with some funds to help you recover physically, emotionally, and financially.

What If the Other Driver Was Uninsured?

Fortunately, you may still be able to recover damages if the other driver was uninsured. First of all, your uninsured motorist bodily injury (UMBI) coverage will cover benefits for your injuries. This also applies if you carry uninsured motorist property damage (UMPD) coverage, which can help defray the cost of repairing (or replacing) your vehicle. Beyond your own policy, your lawyer will advise you on the pros and cons of directly suing the other motorist. Unfortunately, many drivers who can’t afford car insurance (or who don’t bother to apply for it) may not be able to foot your bills, so your attorney will help you decide whether it’s still worthwhile to pursue a claim.
