Who Is Liable After a Car Accident?

The at-fault driver’s insurance pays out any necessary damages when the only driver is responsible for an accident. However, most accidents have more than one driver at fault in some way or another. In these cases, California follows a "pure comparative negligence" rule which means that when more than one person is at fault for an accident the court will determine both the amount of compensation the claimant will be awarded as well as the percentage of fault all parties are responsible for.

Once both determined, the amount of fault the plaintiff is found to be responsible for will be reduced from their total compensation amount. For example, if an injury victim is found to be 15% at fault for the accident that led to their injuries their total compensation amount be reduced by 15%.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Since most insurance settlements state specifically that the amount agreed upon will be the only compensation the injury victim will receive, once you agree to an amount it’s usually difficult to recover any more compensation. If you have already signed an agreement, call our law firm to learn about your options and how our firm can help you today.

What are the Steps to Take After a Car Accident?

Quick action after the car accident is important. Witnesses disappear, memories fade, your injuries change or are not properly documented or treated and physical evidence is lost. Although you may delay the decision to hire a lawyer, the insurance company will not delay contacting you and try to rob you of your case.

Their initial approach will be friendly and appear helpful. They will likely suggest what they call “a quick fair and reasonable settlement.” However, the insurance company certainly does not have your interests in mind. There is a reason that insurance companies have the tallest building in nearly every city of the world. It’s all about the money for them, and they want to keep theirs.

After you have been involved in a car or truck accident, follow these steps to protect your interests:

  • Contact the appropriate law enforcement agency, request they respond to the scene of the accident and have them prepare a traffic collision report.
  • Do not leave the scene of the accident until you have obtained information about the other driver including their names, addresses, phone numbers and auto insurance policy information of the individual involved
  • Obtain witness information
  • It is often difficult if not impossible to determine the full nature and extent of your injuries at the scene of an accident. If you think you may have been injured in any way, seek medical treatment immediately. Do not hesitate to call an ambulance if needed.
  • You should not discuss the collision or your injuries with anyone other than the Police Department, emergency personnel, your doctor and your lawyer. Never submit to a recorded statement requested by an insurance company.

If you have been involved in an auto accident and loss your mobility or the use of a limb or other serious injury, you are facing a life-changing event. However, you’re probably focused on the pain, frustration and uncertainty that this event has caused and how you are going to make it through tomorrow, much less the rest of your life. You need to focus on healing from your injuries, not dealing with the stress any personal injury claim or lawsuit! As President Theodore Roosevelt once said: “Believe you can and you’re half way there.”

What is the Statute of Limitations in California?

Car accidentEvery state has a different time limit in which an individual can file an injury claim, which is known as a "statute of limitations". In California, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. However, this time period may be as short as 6 month if a government entity is responsible for the accident.

If you are injured in an auto accident you should contact a motor vehicle accident lawyer as soon as possible. You have heard the expression “time heals all wounds”, while that may be the case with injuries, it does not apply to a motor vehicle accident lawsuit.

We Know the Law and We Can Help!

The California Vehicle Code has a number of sections that govern the conduct of drivers. If a motor vehicle case proceeds to trial, the jury can be instructed that if the responsible party violated these vehicle code sections, such as Vehicle Code section 22350 (“basic speed law” ) or Section 21804 (“failure to yield right-of-way) it is presumed the responsible person is liable to you. This is called “negligence per se.”

Now, when you are most vulnerable, is when you need the services of a solid, experienced, reputable Sacramento car accident lawyer. You need Miller Injury Attorneys.

    “I contacted John Miller for help after trying to negotiate with two parties that had created a nightmare for me in my home purchase. From the very initial contact, John was knowledgeable of the different legal aspects involved. John let me know from the start that this could be a long process to resolve.
