Under California law, a person who negligently injures someone is legally responsible for paying that person’s medical bills. However, establishing that they are to blame often takes time, and some insurers will fight any attempt to pay out benefits.

Under California law, it is often illegal to make a U-turn—and for good reason. Turning your car 180 degrees so that it faces oncoming traffic is dangerous in even the best of circumstances.

After a car accident, our client’s vehicle typically needs repairs.

T-bone accidents, also called side-impact collisions, are some of the worst that we see here at RMD Law. Motorists can suffer devastating injuries, with many dying as a result of the crash.
