Each state has different laws for resolving accident and insurance disputes. For auto accidents, states have either “no-fault” or “at-fault” insurance laws. California is an at-fault state, which means the driver deemed responsible for the accident is liable for paying the costs of potential injuries and property damage sustained by other parties.

To receive compensation, you must be able to prove liability in your case. If you’re involved in an auto accident in California, contact the California personal injury lawyers, Berg Injury Lawyers, as soon as possible. Acting quickly can help preserve any evidence that can be used to establish fault in your case, and protect your rights to compensation.
