  • The extent of your damages
  • How the harm was caused
  • Liability of a negligent party

The difficult and detail-intensive process of gathering proof and presenting it to the insurance company is your responsibility as the victim. To avoid un-needed stress and time spent dealing with the insurance companies, it is wise to contact our qualified, competent Redding car accident attorney at Haslerud Law Office. We can handle even the most complicated cases from paperwork to representing you in the courtroom.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim?

According to California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, you have two years to file a car accident injury claim before the statute of limitations ends. If the statute of limitations ends before you file a claim you will no longer be able to do so. There are, however, some exceptions that can change this two-year time period so it’s important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible.

Liability Laws After a Car Accident

In the event of a car accident, California follows a “at-fault” rule to determine liability. An at-fault rule means that the driver who is responsible for causing an accident is also responsible for paying the resulting damages through their insurance carrier. This law is straightforward enough for accidents where only one driver it at fault, however, it’s true that most accidents can find both parties at fault in some way, no matter how small. Examples of “fault” that that are easily overlooked would be driving slightly about the speed limit or failing to put on a turn signal. In these circumstances, an injured driver can still recover compensation through California’s "pure comparative negligence" law.

This law states that any injured party can file a claim against a negligent party but the percentage of responsibility they are found to bear will also be reduced from the overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 10% at fault for the accident, the total compensation awarded to you will be reduced by the same amount, 10%. Our experienced attorneys will be happy to answer questions you may have about this complicated area of the law during a free consultation.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Most insurance companies ensure they include in their settlement offers that no additional compensation beyond the settlement amount, can be collected after an agreement is signed. If you sign a settlement offer, you will most likely be unable to recover anything else, even if your injuries become more serious in the following weeks and months following your accident, a common occurrence with injuries sustained in a car accident. If you have been offered a settlement, or if you have already signed one, call Haslerud Law Office, A Professional Corporation today to talk about your case.
