What is the Legal Standard in a California Car Accident Lawsuit?

Fault under California law can be complicated. In general, drivers have a duty to use reasonable care to prevent harm to others. If a driver breach’s this duty of care, and it causes someone’s injury or death, the victims have a right to pursue a cause of action for “Negligence”. Negligence is usually some form of careless or reckless behavior. To receive compensation for negligence under California law, you must show:

  1. The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care;
  2. The defendant breached that duty of care through negligence;
  3. The defendant’s negligence was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s injuries; and
  4. The plaintiff suffered damages.

Common Examples of Driver Negligence Include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Running a red light/stop sign
  • Texting while driving
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Drunk driving
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Tailgating or
  • Reckless driving

What if Both Parties are Partially at Fault for the Car Accident?

Both parties can be partially at fault for some car accidents. If both parties are attributed fault, comparative negligence laws apply under California law. This means that if you contributed to the accident, the amount of damages you can recover will be reduced by the percentage you were at fault. In other words, if you suffer $100,000 in damages, but the insurer finds that you were 20 percent at fault for the accident, the damages will be reduced to $80,000.
