Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Regardless of whether you drive a small passenger car or a pickup truck, car accidents can be dangerous and even fatal, especially when they involve many vehicles colliding at once. From minor scratches to catastrophic brain damage, the resulting injuries may affect the course of your life, and require thousands of dollars in medical treatment.

Here are some of the most common injuries after a car accident:

Understanding Car Accident Laws in California

Like many other states, California observes an “at fault” or tort-based legal system in automobile accidents. While most accident victims will file a claim with their insurance company after a crash, some may need additional compensation to cover the costs of medical expenses, lost wages, vehicle repairs, and other damages. In those instances, the victim can also choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Because there is only a 2-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases, it’s important to act quickly on your car crash claim. The tort-based system also means that you will need to prove that the other driver was actually at fault in your accident, which can be difficult without the assistance of an experienced lawyer.

When Can I Recover Damages?

Although it may sound daunting to bring a personal injury suit and prove that the other driver was negligent, it can often be the best way to secure fair financial recovery for your mounting bills. In addition to your medical expenses and personal losses, you may also be able to pursue “non-economic” damages, to account for your pain, suffering, and emotional distress.

Additionally, the comparative fault laws in California allow plaintiffs to recover damages even if they are partially responsible for the accident. No matter if you are found to be negligent or not, you can still receive a portion of your requested compensation, which will be reduced by the percentage of your involvement. For example, if you were 30% at fault, you may still receive up to 70% of the amount claimed in your lawsuit.
