Every year, car accidents affect thousands of families across the state. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 36,096 people lost their lives as a result of traffic accidents on U.S. roadways in 2019. The agency also reports that 2.74 million were injured across U.S roadways, an increase from 2018.
It is unfortunate that car accidents commonly result in serious, life-changing injuries. Depending on the seriousness of each specific injury and the facts of each case, however, victims may be able to seek financial compensation for their harms.
According to California law, when a car accident is caused as a result of another’s negligence, the victim can seek economic damages through a personal injury claim. Identifying the party responsible for causing the car accident, however, can be a challenging undertaking. While most car accidents are caused by another driver’s reckless actions, such as speeding, other accidents can be caused by third-party negligence.
When a car accident happens, the accident can be caused by multiple factors, such as weather conditions, road visibility, road conditions, or even an automobile defect. When a third party has caused a car accident that led to a person’s injuries, that party will be held accountable for the victim’s damages.
Additionally, based on California’s laws, auto accident victims are not barred from seeking compensation if they partially caused the vehicle accident. Instead, based on the state’s pure comparative negligence laws, the victim’s compensation will be reduced by his or her percentage of fault. This means that even if an injured person was 99 percent at fault for causing the accident, this person can still recover a compensation award of 1 percent.
When seeking compensation after a car accident, the amount of damages received will be unique to each individual case. For instance, in most auto accident claims, the victim may seek compensation for existing medical bills, costs of future surgery, permanent disability accommodations, loss of income, and loss of earning potential.
Other damages that may be available are known as non-economic damages. These are intangible losses that have no exact value. Non-economic damages can include physical pain and anguish, loss of quality of life, disfigurement, and disability. Since these losses have no numeric value, victims can find it difficult to identify the exact value of their losses.
Every car accident is different and should therefore be treated as such. Depending on the facts of each case, an auto accident victim may face a variety of challenges, including catastrophic injuries, mounting medical expenses, loss of employment, the loss of quality of life, and even wrongful death. When a car accident happens, it is critically important to seek the legal guidance and support of a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney. A dedicated attorney will conduct necessary investigations to identify all potentially liable parties. An attorney will also be able to calculate the exact amount of damages and will be able to advocate for the highest compensation available.
