About California Auto Accidents

Car accidents are a primary cause of death and severe injury in California. Crashes include head-on collisions, side impacts, rollovers and other common accidents. Serious injuries such as traumatic head injury and spinal cord injuries cause pain, immobility and often, the loss of ability to function normally or earn a living.

Careless negligence or reckless driving is to blame for many serious accidents. Excessive speed, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and distracted driving are common causes. Sometimes, faulty equipment and product liability are factors. Compensation damages in an auto accident claim usually include medical bills, lost wages, property loss, and in some cases, future expenses and pain and suffering.

In wrongful death cases, there is loss of companionship, support, household care and more. Punitive damages may be awarded in cases involving grievous negligence, such as aggravated drunk driving.

Insurance Issues

Speak with an attorney before making formal statements to insurance adjusters, whose job is to save the insurance company money if at all possible.

Scott Sumner is a respected attorney with a strong record of success. He handles every case with compassion, fostering personal, one-on-one relationships with clients.

California follows a “pure comparative fault rule,” which allows victims to recover for damages even if they are at fault, but to a lesser degree. The more “at fault” the adjusters can show you to be, the less they may have to pay you. If you are the victim of an uninsured motorist or the opposing party is underinsured, your own insurance policy may be obligated to pay toward your claim.
