Understanding Comparative Liability in Intersection Accidents

Fault is an important issue in any auto accident case. California is a comparative fault state, which means that your recovery can be reduced by any percentage of fault that is assigned to you.

Even if the other side admits fault, his or her story can change when it comes time to pay for your damages. For this reason, it’s important to collect and preserve evidence of liability as soon as possible, before skid marks disappear and witnesses’ memories fade.

You should not discuss the accident with the insurance company of the other driver. A seemly innocent answer to an adjuster’s question can be used against you to reduce your personal injury claim. For example, the adjuster may ask you if you looked both ways before crossing the intersection. If you say you didn’t look because you had the right of way, the insurance company can pin a percentage of the fault on you for not looking.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    Lisa D.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
