Liability for Your Accident

Identifying liability for your accident can be intricate, involving multiple parties. For example, in a car crash, the other driver may be responsible, but badly maintained roads or defects in your vehicle may contribute, even partially. In such scenarios, those responsible for maintenance (or the lack thereof) could be held liable.

We meticulously analyze your case to find all liable parties and then take appropriate action against all of them. By doing so, it’s one more way that we can ensure maximum compensation.

Procedures to Follow Post-Accident

In the wake of an accident, prioritize your and others’ safety. Identify any injuries and move to safety. Gather contact details and insurance information from other involved parties, but refrain from accepting fault. Capture the accident scene via photographs and videos so long as you can do so safely. 

Alert the authorities. Receive medical attention even if you don’t feel that you need it.  Notify your insurance provider and tell them what happened without embellishment. Once these steps are undertaken, contact us for expert legal advice.

Compensation is Possible Even if You Were Partially at Fault

In California, the comparative negligence principle permits you to secure compensation proportional to your degree of fault. If you were partially at fault (e.g., 30%), your compensation would decrease by the same percentage. Consultation with an attorney to accurately evaluate your case is crucial. You may have a robust case deserving significant compensation.

What Causes Car Accidents in California?

Vehicular mishaps in California and its vicinity stem from various factors. Among the primary culprits are:

  • Excessive Speeding: When drivers exceed the limit, it not only hampers their ability to react swiftly but also complicates maneuvering for others on the road, including pedestrians.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Shockingly, approximately one-third of fatal traffic incidents across the nation result from driving while intoxicated or under the influence of substances.
  • Driving Distractions: From texting and social media engagement to adjusting directions and music, distractions abound, diverting drivers’ attention from the road.
  • Vehicle Defects: Malfunctions in critical components like seat belts, engines, and brakes contribute significantly to accidents, often underestimated in their impact.
  • Driving Errors: Tailgating, failure to yield, disregarding traffic signals, momentary lapses in attention, abrupt lane changes—such driving blunders add to the risk on the road.

What Injuries are Common in Accidents? 

Accidents can lead to any number of injuries. Some of the most common that Belal has dealt with in previous cases include: 

  • Substantial bruising
  • Whiplash
  • Road rash and cuts
  • Broken bones
  • Paralysis
  • Back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Emotional distress, such as PTSD and anxiety
  • Head and neck injuries
