What to do Following a Car Accident

After a car accident, it is important to take the following steps to preserve evidence and protect your legal rights:

  • If possible, move yourself and your vehicle out of the way of oncoming traffic.
  • Call authorities to report the accident and request an ambulance if needed.
  • Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and the vehicles involved.
  • Gather personal and insurance information from all parties involved in the accident.
  • Collect witness statements and information.
  • Visit a medical professional to identify and treat injuries.
  • Call an experienced San Jose car accident lawyer at The Barnes Firm.

The period after a car accident can be stressful – you will likely be talking with insurance companies during a time when you should be solely focused on recovering from your injuries.

Understanding California Car Accident Laws

In California, you must prove that the other party is at fault to file a claim after a car accident. You may be found partially liable for your accident. In this case, you can still receive compensation, even if you are partially at fault. For example, if you are found 25% liable for your accident, you can still recover 75% of the damages.

All drivers in California are required to carry vehicle insurance that covers:

  • $5,000 for property damage
  • $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person
  • $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident

California car accident laws can be very confusing. Our experienced team of San Jose car accident lawyers will support you every step of the way and guide you through your accident claim. Call us at (800) 800-0000 for a FREE case evaluation.
