Offices in Monterey & Santa Cruz, CA
Automobile accidents are among the leading causes of injuries and accidental deaths in California. According to data provided by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), there were 230,904 reported car accident injuries and 3,126 reported highway fatalities in the state in 2014 alone.
Injured car accidents victims need fair compensation to pay for their medical care, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the large insurance companies often make it very difficult for victims to get the full money that they deserve. Car accident injury claims are routinely underpaid and unfairly denied by insurers.

Prove Liability for a Car Accident in California
Following your accident, be sure to:
- Seek professional medical help because this can provide as evidence and strengthen your case in the future.
- Record details of the wreck you can recall.
Make sure you get your injury documented right away so that it can be shown that it was caused by the accident.
The amount of treatment is also taken into consideration in every case. If you end up suing for medical injuries, you’ll need to prove the severity of those injuries, and by delaying medical treatment, you’ll risk being properly compensated. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney will make sure that you follow every advice given by your medical professional.
We take into consideration that every car accident is unique and under its own circumstances. That’s why the attorneys at our law office make sure to set a time to listen to your story and give you the time to explain in detail.
California is a Fault-Based State
In order to hold another party legally liable for your car accident injuries, you must be able to prove that the other driver’s negligence caused your wreck. While multiple different parties, including auto manufacturers, can potentially be held liable for car crashes, most accidents are caused by the unsafe actions of drivers. Some common examples of driver negligence include:
- Running red lights;
- Unsafe lane changes;
- Reckless driving;
- Distracted driving; and
- Drunk driving (see figure on the right).
