Important Information About Arroyo Grande Auto Accidents
California law requires all drivers to carry proof of financial responsibility in the event of a car accident. Most people meet this requirement by carrying liability insurance. The minimum liability limits in the law are:
- $15,000 for personal injury to one person.
- $30,000 for personal injury to more than one person.
- $5,000 for property damage.
Obviously, if any kind of serious injury has occurred, then these minimum amounts may not be sufficient to cover the injured person’s medical expenses and other damages.
With truck accidents in particular, we frequently see significant damage exceeding these minimum policy limits. We have seen some situations where insurers have to pay more than the policy limits. Your own insurance might make up for an uninsured or under insured driver. Our experienced car accident attorneys in Arroyo Grande know all the options available to maximize recoveries for victims of auto accidents.
