Motor vehicle collisions in San Marcos and throughout San Diego County can be devastating, and even a relatively minor crash with limited injuries can prevent you from returning to work for weeks, months, or even longer. After a car accident caused by another motorist or another party, you may be wondering if you are eligible to file a car accident lawsuit against the party who is responsible for your personal injuries and property damage. In many instances, it is possible to file a lawsuit, but you may have additional options for seeking compensation, as well. One of our San Marcos car accident attorneys can explain in more detail.
You Do Not Need to Meet Any Threshold to File a Lawsuit
Some states are “no-fault” states for auto insurance purposes, which means that you would need to meet a financial or injury “threshold” in order to be eligible to file a lawsuit. We want to be clear that California is not a “no-fault” state, and you do not need to meet any threshold in order to file a lawsuit. If you can prove that another party was liable, you may be able to move forward immediately with a lawsuit.
