Auto Accident Attorney Los Angeles: Broadside Accident Settles for Policy Limits
At Fassonaki Law Firm, P.C., a Los Angeles auto accident law firm, we recently represented two wonderful clients, who were severely injured in an auto accident.
Our legal team at Fassonaki Law Firm P.C. investigated the details of the accident, collected all the relevant evidence, and worked diligently to prove that our client was not at fault. In this case, the adverse party's insurer refused to accept the full liability.
Under California law, drivers have a duty of care to operate their vehicles reasonably and safely while considering the safety of others on the road. The adverse driver who struck our client's vehicle was engaged in dangerous and reckless behavior that put others at risk. Their reckless maneuver violated California Vehicle Code § 21801(a).
According to California Vehicle Code § 21801(a), a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to the approaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made with reasonable safety. The adverse driver's conduct breached their duty of care under California law.
Thanks to the efforts of our team, we achieved a resounding victory. As a result of our dedicated work, the adverse party's insurer eventually accepted that their client was entirely responsible for the accident and paid out their full policy limits which means the maximum amount their insurer can pay for the accident to our clients.
