Cars and driving are integral parts of life in Downey and the surrounding areas. Therefore, it is inevitable that car accidents will happen. If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident, Downey car accident lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve to help cover medical bills, lost wages, and other costs associated with car accidents.

Proving Liability

California state law says that the driver who initiates the lawsuit, otherwise known as the plaintiff, is responsible for proving that the other driver, or defendant, was negligent in the accident and is therefore liable. That’s where a Downey car accident lawyer comes in. Your lawyer will gather and examine the evidence from the accident to prove the other driver’s liability. This liability can be from a multitude of mistakes, from talking on the phone while driving to being on the road with an improperly maintained car.


California law also states that plaintiffs can seek compensation for three different kinds of damages: actual, economic, and emotional and physical. Actual damages include all direct costs from the accident, such as car repairs, medical bills and property damage.

Economic damages cover wages lost due to missed work or reduced earning capacity because of the accident.  These damages can also include transportation issues to and from work because of damage to a vehicle, and losses due to decreased job performance because of the accident.

Emotional and physical pain and suffering damages cover almost anything under the category of decreased quality of life because of the accident. Car accidents sadly often cause lifelong injuries, disabilities, and pain. Emotional and physical pain damages cover injuries such as these when the pain and treatment continue long after the initial doctor or hospital visit.

California comparative negligence

California state law also recognizes the idea of comparative negligence, which means that negligence and liability for an accident can be split between the involved drivers. All the drivers that are found negligence will be held responsible for paying damages based on a percentage of their responsibility.

This law also means that you may still be entitled to compensation even if an accident was partially your fault.
