Fresno Car Accident Lawyer
Auto Accident Attorney in Clovis, California
Car accidents are the unfortunate possibility of owning a vehicle in California. This is common knowledge for all drivers, which is why we faithfully pay our monthly insurance premiums and strive to operate our vehicles safely and responsibly. Yet all of this can seem like a slap in the face when a negligent driver slams their vehicle into yours, causing extensive property damage and injuries requiring medical treatment. To add insult to injury, the insurance company that you trusted to take care of you in situations like these is doing everything in their power to delay and deny your claim.

A Clovis car accident lawyer at Setareh Law is here to provide you with the representation needed to recover compensation for all accident-related damages.
Insurance companies are tricky and often misleading in their communications designed to lead you to believe they have your best interests at heart. We see through the smokey mirrors to help ensure you aren’t victimized due to a third party’s negligence.

California Laws on Personal Injury Accidents
While you retain the right to pursue compensation for damages resulting from a third party’s negligence in any state, California has specific laws regarding personal injury accidents. For starters, California is a fault state that follows the Pure Comparative Fault doctrine when determining compensation. This means that parties involved in any personal injury accident will have their compensation amount limited to their percentage of fault.
For example, if you are found 30% at fault for an accident with damages totaling $10,000, you will only be able to recover 70% of that total ($7,000) and have to pay out of pocket for the rest.
California also has a strict two-year statute of limitations for all personal injury accidents. The two-year period begins on the date of the accident and after that period passes, you lose the legal ability to recover compensation for any damages resulting from that personal injury accident.
