Possible Corporate Liability for Car Accidents

Possible Corporate Liability for Car Accidents

Auto Accident
When you think of a car accident case, you might first think of an injured accident victim filing an insurance claim against another driver who caused the crash. While most car accidents are the fault of negligent drivers, not all cases involve a claim against a single individual and their insurer. Instead, in some cases, a corporation or another type of business might be liable for your injuries and losses stemming from a crash. Employers Many people drive for a living, and there is the risk they might make a mistake and cause an accident while on the job. If someone is negligent while working, the law holds their employer strictly liable for any harm that resulted. For example, if a truck driver hit you while making a delivery, you…

Drones Can Help with Car Accident Evidence

Drones Can Help with Car Accident Evidence

Auto Accident
In recent years, you might notice more and more small, buzzing flying objects around Beverly Hills. These drones can help with real estate, deliveries, agriculture, and more. Did you know that drones might also help collect important car accident evidence? Following a car accident, it is important to gather as much evidence as possible. This information can determine how the collision happened, whether one or more drivers violated the law, and who was liable for the crash, among other things. However, it takes time for law enforcement to examine and record every inch of an accident scene, and this often causes disruptions in traffic. Such disruptions commonly lead to further accidents, which might be avoided had the evidence collecting happened quicker. When a drone is used at an accident scene,…

Prop 213: Only One of Many Reasons to Have Proper Car Insurance

Prop 213: Only One of Many Reasons to Have Proper Car Insurance

Auto Accident
If you are in a car crash and another driver is at fault, the other driver’s insurance should cover your losses, and your own insurance generally would not come into play at all. In fact, if you did not have the minimum car insurance required in California, you might not be concerned, since you were not at fault. However, Californians can feel adverse effects from not having insurance even if they did not cause an accident. Proposition 213 changed the law in California to prevent uninsured drivers from collecting non-economic damages in car accident claims, even though someone else was at fault. This is an incentive to ensure that all drivers are properly insured, and the law also effectively deprives uninsured car accident victims of significant compensation in many cases.…

The Importance of Substantial Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

The Importance of Substantial Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Auto Accident
When another driver crashes into your vehicle, that driver’s auto insurance coverage should kick in and reimburse you for your medical bills, property damages, and other losses. California law requires drivers to carry liability insurance at all times to make sure that accident victims can receive the compensation they deserve. However, many drivers decide to let their insurance lapse, and they do not have the coverage needed to compensate accident victims. In addition, some people flee the scene of an accident, and you might never identify the driver to know which insurance coverage is applicable. To protect yourself in the event you are in a hit and run, or in a crash with a driver with inadequate insurance, it is essential to have uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage as part of…
