Seeking compensation 

California is an at-fault state, meaning the injured victims may file claims against the responsible party’s insurance provider to seek compensation for their losses. If this individual does not have insurance, they may file claims directly against her. They may also pursue relief through their insurance providers if doing so becomes necessary. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist each one of the victims take the steps to seek maximum compensation for any damages sustained such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, and many other losses both economic and non-economic in nature. Their cases may be settled through out-of-court negotiations or, if necessary, litigation.
