Negligence: The Key To Your Car Accident Recovery
CACI No. 401 states that it is negligent to fail to use reasonable care in order to prevent causing harm to anyone, including yourself. Acting can be negligent, as can be failing to act. It is negligent if you do what a reasonably careful person wouldn’t. It is negligent if you don’t do what a reasonably careful person would.
Drivers in California are liable for damages caused by their negligence. We can obtain you a car accident recovery by proving that someone else’s negligence caused your injuries and other damages.
CACI No. 400 states the following needs to be proven to establish negligence in California:
- Negligence occurred
- Someone was harmed
- The negligence substantially caused the harm
There are numerous, common examples of negligent driving behavior which can cause accidents, including but not limited to:
- Keeping attentive and alert
- Driving too fast
- Driving a car with broken equipment like brakes or lights
- Loss of control of the car
- Not obeying right-of-way rules
- Driving while drunk or on drugs
- Not using equipment like lights correctly
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Distracted driving involving cell phones
- Fatigued driving
- Failure to follow traffic laws
A plaintiff’s damages are reduced by their percentage of fault in any accident in California. This is established by CACI No. 405, which states that if a plaintiff is negligent and this negligence was a substantial factor in causing harm to them, the jury is to determine the plaintiff’s percentage of fault and reduce the defendant’s liability by that amount.
This means that if you are in an accident which a jury determines was 20% your fault and 80% the fault of the other driver, the liability of the other driver and their insurance company is reduced by 20%.
Is A Car Accident Lawyer Really Necessary For Me?
It is necessary that you retain the services of a car accident lawyer if you have been injured in a car accident in Tracy and you would like to be compensated fairly for your injuries.
Car insurance companies have nothing to fear from a random citizen with no law experience who gets in a car accident and pursues a claim on their own, and they have no reason to respect such a person. Their thought process, when they see a claimant like this, involves trying as hard as possible to exploit the claimant so as to pay out as little as possible for the sake of preserving profits. Their adjusters are trained to trick you into incriminating yourself, reducing or limiting their insureds’ liability in the process. You should never talk to another driver’s insurance company because of this.
It is vital that you retain the services of an experienced car accident law firm if you want to be compensated fairly for your injuries. Insurance companies fear and respect Nadrich & Cohen. Virtually all of our cases end in fair settlements because insurance adjusters know they’ll be on the hook for even more if the case goes to trial.
