Do you need an attorney?
Unfortunately, vehicle accidents are incredibly common in the United States. Odds are almost everyone has been involved in at least a minor car accident. If you were involved in a collision, you may have suffered immediate injuries as well as effects that may linger for a significant period of time after the accident. For some vehicle accidents, the injuries and damages are so minor that the drivers, working in conjunction with their insurance agencies, are able to handle everything on their own. Sometimes when the circumstances are more complex, it is best to hire an attorney. Some of the elements of the laws governing vehicle accidents as illustrated below demonstrate why it can be best to have legal representation in dealing with your claim.
Kevin Hizon, attorney at law, specializes in auto accident and motorcycle accident injury claims.

California is a “Fault” car insurance state
When a car accident involves two vehicles, one of the drivers will most likely be cited by the police as being the cause due to some kind of negligence. Being that California is a “fault” car insurance state, the person at fault can be sued for medical expenses and other applicable costs. When it comes to pursuing compensation, the suing party doesn’t have many restrictions when filing their claim against the party at fault.
If you have been injured in a car accident that’s due to someone else’s negligence, you have the option of pursuing the negligent party for compensation that pays for lost income, medical bills, property damage, and lost wages resulting from the accident. We can help you take one or more of the following actions:
- File a claim with your own auto insurance company.
- Pursue a claim through the insurance company of the driver at fault.
- File a personal injury lawsuit against the driver at fault.
The difference between a fault state and a no-fault state is that in a no-fault state, the driver that was injured can file a claim with their own car insurance company for the payment of lost income and medical bills. While this may seem simple, there are strict restrictions in no-fault states. Californians don’t have to worry about these no-fault rules, but what they do have to be concerned about is pursuing meaningful compensation. Insurance companies try to award as little as possible in order to protect their bottom lines, which is why they may try to reach the injured party to get them to agree to an immediate settlement that isn’t enough to cover all costs.
Accidents Involving Alcohol
Accidents where a driver who was under the influence of alcohol or drugs are all too frequent. Collisions caused by impaired drivers can have very serious consequences for passengers and other drivers. If you have been hit by a drunk driver, your chances of recovering compensation for your injuries may be good, but there are still complexities that can arise with an insurance or personal injury claim. Kevin Hizon, an experienced personal injury attorney, will be able to explain in greater detail what the process might look like for your particular case.
