Compensation for Victims of Automobile Accidents / Car Accidents
Richard Katz, a personal injury lawyer, wants you to know that California law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance. The minimal coverages required for traffic accidents are $15,000 for personal injury to one person, $30,000 for personal injury to multiple people, and $5,000 for property damage. These small limits provide only little coverage, and in a serious car accident the losses suffered by the injured party are likely to be greater. Despite the law in California reports show that up to 20 percent of drivers do not carry liability insurance. In such cases, we will file a claim for you using your uninsured motorist (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. With UM/UIM coverage, you are entitled to the same compensation you could recover from the negligent driver. In many cases after your UM claim is settled the insurance company will sue the negligent driver to recover the money paid to resolve or settle your claim.
Many people mistakenly believe the insurance company of the negligent driver responsible for your accident will take care of any claim or mistakenly believe your insurance company will treat you fairly, they are wrong. The sad truth is that most insurance companies only look to pay out the lowest amount possible and not what is a fair settlement for your injuries and damages. Hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your rights is important.
Whether you or a loved one has experienced a simple fender bender or a serious accident, you will likely have suffered some financial hardships. One is entitled to be compensated for those losses. Such compensation may include the following:
- Medical bills, past and future
- Lost wages, past and future
- Pain and suffering from physical injury, past and future
- Car, motorcycle, or truck repair bills
- Wrongful death damages if you have lost a loved one
