Personal injury claims can arise from a wide variety of accidents and situations. Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling many types of personal injury claims including:
Car insurance premiums can be expensive. However, to operate a vehicle in California, you are required to carry minimum car insurance coverage. You may purchase additional coverage if you desire, but you are not required to do so. Uninsured motorist coverage is optional, but that does not mean you should not have it.
All drivers in California are required to maintain minimum liability coverage. However, many drivers do not obey the law. If an uninsured driver causes your car accident, you could end up with thousands of dollars in financial losses and damages that you must pay. You can file a personal injury lawsuit against the uninsured driver, but you might only get a worthless paper judgment that you will never be able to collect.
A tragic DUI head-on car accident left one person dead and another person arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. According to the California Highway Patrol, a driver attempted to pass another vehicle and caused the accident. The accident occurred near East Levee Road just before noon on Elkhorn Boulevard. The driver attempting to pass using the other lane of traffic and crashed head-on into a van.
Distracted driving accidents continue to injure and kill thousands of people each year. In 2018, distracted driving accidents injured over 400,000 people. Distracted drivers also caused the death of 2,841 people during 2018.
If a distracted driver caused your injuries, you might receive compensation for damages. However, you must file an insurance claim to recover money for your injuries and losses. If the insurance company for the distracted driver refuses to pay the claim, you may need a Sacramento distracted driving accident attorney to file a personal injury lawsuit.
