Being involved in a car accident can be scary, especially if the collision is more than just a common “fender-bender.” In serious car accidents, California residents can suffer injuries and even fatalities. The unfortunate reality is that these types of serious motor vehicle accidents happen every day in California and throughout the country.
Anyone who has been injured in a car accident will likely have quite a few questions in the aftermath of the incident, but it is crucially important for those individuals to know their options, particularly their legal options. The immediate concern for these victims is obviously for them to get the medical attention they need, but sooner or later those medical bills will start to stack up. Why should a person who did not cause the accident be responsible for paying those expenses?
Injured car accident victims may be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit in order to attempt to recover financial compensation from the party who caused the accident. In order to do so, injured victims must be able to show that the other driver was operating a vehicle recklessly or negligently, and that the conduct in question caused the victim’s injuries.
