What is Your Car Accident Claim Worth?
After suffering a car accident, you will experience a variety of damages. In personal injury law speak, a damage is something that incurred a cost, especially when it is caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. The total of your damages is the worth of your car accident claim. Our team is always careful to tally damages accurately, including those related to non-economic damages and future damages.
Damages available in your car accident case could include:
- Medical treatments

Do You Have to Prove Liability After a Car Accident?
California uses a pure comparative negligence rule when determining liability in car accident cases. This rule basically allows you to seek damages from any other party involved in your accident, as long as they are at least 1% liable for it. The higher a party’s liability, the more damages they might pay you through a settlement offer or a court award.
Due to the fact that practically anyone can pursue compensation after a car accident in California, it becomes vitally important to prove liability convincingly. Let our attorneys help you find and utilize different types of evidence to build your claim. We can anticipate that the other side might blame you for what happened, but they’ll have a much more difficult time if they encounter a solid case constructed by our attorneys.
Evidence often used to prove liability in a car accident includes:
- Eyewitness statements
- Police, firefighter, and EMT reports
- Dashcam footage
- Medical records
When Should You Get a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
