How Long Do You Have to Report a Car Accident in California?

In the aftermath of a car accident, you must report the collision to the local police department. This is required in cases of injury or significant property damage

The state of California also requires that people involved in car accidents must report a collision to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of the incident. The failure to report an accident can impact your case and your driving privileges.

Is California a No-Fault State for Car Accidents?

California is not a no-fault state. Car accident injury victims must prove the liability of another driver and file a claim with their insurance company in order to recover compensation for their damages.

California follows comparative negligence laws. In states with comparative negligence laws, it is possible for each driver to be found partially liable for a car accident. Compensation for car accident injury victims is reduced according to their degree of fault. For example, a person who is identified as 20% liable for an accident would have their compensation decreased by that amount. If their damages total $10,000, their compensation would be reduced by $2,000 and they would only be able to recover $8,000.

Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents can happen for a number of different reasons. Negligent drivers are often to blame, but there are outside factors that can cause car accidents as well. The actions of drivers, road conditions, and the mechanical state of the vehicle can all contribute to a collision.

A car accident may be caused by:

Who is Liable for My Car Accident Damages?

In most car accident cases, the negligence of a driver is liable for the damages but it is possible for multiple drivers or other parties to be at fault for a car accident. In comparative negligence states like California, it is more likely that all responsible parties will be held liable for their negligence.

A car accident can be caused by the negligence of:

  • One driver or multiple drivers involved in the accident
  • One or more drivers who were not involved in the accident (for example, if someone’s reckless driving causes the accident but they drive away without colliding)
  • A vehicle manufacturer or mechanic
  • The people responsible for road maintenance
