Common Causes of High Desert Car Accidents
Many car accidents in the High Desert are not truly “accidents”, they’re usually the result of one or more individuals acting in a careless or negligent manner. Motorists who drive negligently or carelessly and who cause or contribute to an injury or fatal car accident can be held legally responsible for some or all of the losses and expenses incurred by the victim(s) of the crash. Negligent or careless behavior often includes one or more of the following:
- Distracted driving;
- Driving too fast for the prevailing road and traffic conditions;
- Texting while driving or driving while making a phone call;
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Violating traffic rules or signs.
Even if a victim’s own negligence played a role in the accident, in many cases California law permits the victim to pursue a lawsuit against any other negligent party for compensation. In this case, any compensation the victim receives from other negligent parties will be proportionately reduced according to the percentage of fault attributable to the victim. It is essential that a thorough and complete investigation into the causes of your car accident be undertaken and completed so that you have the best opportunity to recover the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries.
Assistance for Passengers Injured in Car Accidents
If you were the passenger in a motor vehicle and you were injured in a car crash, in most cases you will have the same rights to recover compensation from the at-fault driver(s) in your crash as would a driver involved in a car crash. You may be able to recover compensation from the person driving the vehicle in which you were riding (in many cases). Just as a driver’s own fault or negligence can reduce the amount of compensation he or she would be entitled to receive, so too your own careless or negligent behavior can be used to limit your compensation. Negligent passenger behavior might include:
- Not wearing your seatbelt (this can cause your injuries to be more serious than they would otherwise be); and
- Distracting the driver with conversation or other behavior that takes the driver’s eyes and attention off of the road.
