Newport is an area of nearly 100,000 residents where, sadly, thousands of personal injury accidents occur each year. Many of those injuries occur in car accidents, as revealed by California’s Office of Traffic Safety. In 2015, for example, there were 630 collisions that led to victims being either injured or killed in a Newport Beach auto accident.

Why California’s Comparative Negligence Law Means You Should Talk to a Lawyer
Never assume the facts of your case are too simple to justify speaking with a Ledger Law attorney. This is especially true if you believe that you are at fault for the accident. In many instances, a full accident investigation can reveal that defective auto parts such as the brake system can be the true cause of an accident.
However, even in an event where you are partly liable, this does not necessarily prevent you from getting compensation for your injuries. California is a comparative negligence state, meaning you can still receive compensation if another party is also partly to blame for the accident. Personal injury accidents are complex, and it is often the case that there is more than one legally responsible party. Further, Stanford Law research has shown that it is reasonable to conclude that some 90 percent of auto accidents are at least partially caused by manmade errors.
