Hundreds of thousands of people are annually injured or killed in California car accidents – a daily occurrence in large cities such as San Diego. With more and more people driving while distracted, vehicle collisions continue to increase each year, often saddling the victims with serious injuries, emotional trauma and exorbitant medical bills. A serious car accident can cause significant property damage, severe injury, and, in some cases, death – and in many instances can forever change the course of life for victims.
In most cases, San Diego car accidents involving serious personal injury or wrongful death entail dealing with an insurance agency – which can be challenging. For this reason, it is important to hire an experienced car accident attorney in the aftermath of a car accident. Claims can be complicated, and insurers, with their teams of accident personnel and legal staff, generally do everything possible to limit adequate payout. For an experienced car accident lawyer, contact our firm today.

Car Accidents in San Diego
Commonly caused by distracted driving, impaired driving and speeding, car accidents occur daily across the U.S. – often in high-density urban areas like San Diego.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), traffic fatalities during the first half of 2021 increased 18.4% since the first half of 2020 and the estimated 20,160 fatalities during the first half of 2021 is the highest since 2006. These statistics demonstrate how often negligence – such as driving without a seatbelt, driving under the influence or speeding – is involved in car crashes that result in the wrongful injuries and deaths of others. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, in 2019, 50% of all drivers killed in motor vehicle crashes who were tested, tested positive for legal and/ or illegal drugs, an increase of 8% from 2018. And NHTSA estimated 47% of passengers killed in 2018 were not wearing a seat belt.
Unfortunately, few people plan for such an event, and even fewer understand the process or how to protect themselves thoroughly in the aftermath of an accident. This is why it is essential to hire a car accident attorney who is well-versed in personal injury law and experienced in how to obtain the compensation you are entitled to under those laws.

Comparative Negligence in Car Accident Claims
When both drivers are at fault in a car crash, it generally falls under California’s comparative fault policy. Under this policy, you can still recover damages reduced by the amount of fault you had for causing the incident. So, for example, if it is determined that you had a 45 percent fault, your damages would be reduced by that amount.
Can I File a Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?
Since most insurance settlements state that the amount agreed upon will be the only compensation paid, once you sign a settlement agreement, it’s usually difficult to recover any more compensation. Call our firm today to learn more about what next steps you can take if you have already signed an agreement.
