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.
In the early hours of July 30, 2020, a Sacramento family was sleeping in their home near Norwood Avenue and Las Palmas Avenue. A car crashed into their home, nearly striking their 11-year-old son who was sleeping in his bed. The crash occurred just after 2:30 a.m.
Head-on crashes are dangerous traffic accidents because the risk of catastrophic injury and life-threatening injuries is high. If another driver is responsible for causing a head-on crash, that driver can be liable for damages and losses caused by the collision. However, proving that the other driver was responsible for causing the crash may not be easy. The insurance company for the driver may dispute liability for the accident.
An intoxicated driver is a dangerous driver. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs increases the chance of a traffic accident. Even though California has strict DUI laws, thousands of drivers across the state choose to ignore those laws each day. Sadly, some of those drivers cause Sacramento DUI accidents that result in severe injuries and death for innocent victims.
