Car Accident Claims

While there are multiple types of car accident claims, the most common type of claim is negligence. Negligence occurs when a driver fails to use a reasonable standard of care while on the road, causing a car accident. The driver at fault will be responsible for any injuries caused by their negligence. By failing to obey the rules of the road and driving carelessly, the driver is responsible for any foreseeable harm caused by their carelessness.

After a car accident, the driver’s insurance company will contact you to obtain information about your injuries, including medical costs, damage to your car, and more. The insurance company may tell you that it will only cover certain costs or may offer you a low amount in hopes that you will settle quickly. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you negotiate a higher settlement figure or fight your claim in court.

If you decide to pursue a trial for your negligence claim, you will have to prove:

(1) The at-fault driver did not exercise the reasonable standard of care,

(2) His or her negligence was the cause of the car accident, and

(3) His or her negligence caused your injuries.

A personal injury attorney will investigate your claim, gather evidence, depose witnesses, and argue your case in court.

The second most common car accident claim falls under manufacturer liability. Vehicle manufacturers are upheld to strict safety specifications by the Department of Transportation. Sometimes, however, faulty design or manufacturing defects cause car accidents. It does not matter if the car belongs to you or the at-fault driver. In addition, in some cases, it does not matter if the at-fault driver was negligent. The vehicle manufacturer will be liable for any injuries caused by a manufacturer defect. These cases are extremely complex as they require expert testimony on the manufacturing process and safety regulations, as well as insider knowledge into the cause of the defect.

If you decide to pursue a manufacturer liability claim, you will have to prove: (1) the faulty design or defect rendered the car unreasonably dangerous, (2) the car was being driven as intended, and (3) the car’s performance had not changed after the sale of the car. Because these claims are extremely difficult to prove, you will need the expertise, skills, and training of a seasoned personal injury attorney like Kourosh Pourmorady with a proven history of filing claims against vehicle manufacturers.

A third type of car accident claim is due to faulty road design. The defendant in a faulty road design accident is usually the government agency responsible for maintaining the roads in that particular California county. The government owes a duty of care to drivers on the road – to maintain safe driving conditions. This includes:

(1) Installing guard rails, medians, barriers, and curbs to separate lanes and keep the roads safe,

(2) Fixing any issues with the roads such as repairing pot holes,

(3) Maintaining proper signage, and

(4) Controlling traffic flow to minimize traffic and accidents.

Types of Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can cause physical, emotional, and financial injuries. Some compensable injuries include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Property damage

  • Future wages
