What Compensation Can I Receive for Auto Accidents?
- Medical bills and future medical expenses related to the injury
- Lost wages and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
To collect compensation, you must prove the other driver was at fault. This can be complex, and often requires physical evidence and witness testimony. Retaining an Oakland car accident attorney immediately is the best way to ensure evidence is preserved.
According to the Insurance Research Council of the California Department of Insurance, California ranks second among the states in the percentage of uninsured drivers. Twenty-five percent of all drivers in California are uninsured. That means that your chances are 1-in-4 that the driver who hits you will not have insurance. Further complicating the picture are the drivers who carry only the legal minimum of liability insurance.
According to California law, drivers must carry coverage in the following amounts:
- $15,000 for injury/death to one person
- $30,000 for injury/death to more than one person
- $5,000 for damage to property
Given the costs of medical care and replacement vehicles, the statutory minimum is terribly inadequate to compensate a seriously injured driver or a driver with a late-model car.
If you get into a car accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, there are ways to obtain compensation, such as your own uninsured motorist coverage or a civil lawsuit attaching the driver’s assets. But you must have a tenacious car accident attorney who is willing to pursue every path to a successful resolution.
