California insurance laws require all drivers to carry car insurance to pay for bodily injury and property damage in case they cause a car accident. Still, the number of uninsured drivers on California roads is staggering — and even drivers with car insurance may not carry enough car accident coverage to pay for all the costs associated with an accident.
California follows a fault-based system of handling insurance claims after a car accident. This means that the driver who caused the accident must pay for the associated costs, which might include medical bills, lost wages and unnecessary pain and suffering.
You should notify your own insurance company as soon as possible after a car accident. However, it is a good idea to consult an independent attorney before signing any settlement claim — even with your own insurance company. As far as the other driver's insurance company goes, you have a good chance of increasing the likelihood of a fair settlement if you hire an experienced car accident attorney to negotiate on your behalf.
