The financial consequences of a serious injury are wide-ranging and long-lasting. There are medical bills, vehicle repairs, and lost wages to think of, not to mention the reduced quality of life that can result. We’ll account for all of these factors as we structure your claim to ensure that every impact of your injury on your life is addressed.
Understanding Negligence in California
What happens when both parties bear some responsibility for an accident? Let’s say you were going 5 MPH over the speed limit, but the other person ran a stop sign. Can you still get compensated?
In California, the answer would likely be yes. California recognizes “shared” negligence, which means that you can receive compensation in proportion to the other parties level of fault in the accident. So if the court determines that the other driver was 80% responsible for the action, you can still receive 80% of the payment that you would have otherwise received.
