California auto insurance laws are complicated, especially if you are unfamiliar with your policy and have never been in a car accident before. It is important to have a lawyer representing your interests. At Bausch Law Group, we handle all the complex issues concerning your insurance, the insurance of the negligent party and work to maximize your claim.
Lead attorney Natalie Bausch is very proactive and takes a hands-on approach to working with her clients. She is solutions-oriented and works closely with her clients to protect their rights.
California has adopted a fault-based, or tort liability, system of auto insurance. Here insurance companies pay according to each party's degree of fault. The "at-fault" driver is responsible for paying the costs of damages and injuries to the other driver, including economic damages such as lost wages and medical expenses and non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
According to California Insurance Code, the minimum liability insurance requirements are $15,000 for injury/death to one person, $30,000 for injury/death to more than one person, and $5,000 for damage to property.
First party insurance may also offer additional provisions through MedPay, Uninsured or Underinsured coverage. We can help with issues concerning auto insurance in California. We closely review the specifics of your insurance and look to exhaust all options for coverage before negotiating a settlement.
One of the many benefits of working with our lawyers is that we handle all issues with the insurance company. We will negotiate on your behalf and make sure that you do not make statements to the insurance company about your injuries that could potentially hurt your claim.
