With San Diego’s busy streets and heavy traffic, it is critical for all drivers to follow traffic laws and drive safely.

Proving Liability in San Diego Car Accident Claims

While it may seem clear whose negligence caused your car accident and injuries, proving fault is not always easy. As a victim filing a claim, you must fulfill the burden of proof. This involves presenting clear evidence of the following points:

  • Duty of care: The liable party owed you a duty to care for your safety and drive responsibly.
  • Negligence: They breach this duty of care by acting negligently.
  • Causation: This negligence directly caused the accident and your personal injuries.
  • Damages: Your injuries resulted in damages.

To prove these points, we conduct a thorough investigation, gathering evidence like medical records, police reports, witness testimony, and video footage from traffic and security cameras. Our team understands the intricacies of car accident claims, so we leave no stone unturned and work hard to build a claim that gives you the best chance of securing fair compensation.

Types of Damages You May Recover After a Car Accident in California

Our Callahan & Blaine car accident lawyers in San Diego understand you may worry about the physical, emotional, and financial impact of your car accident injuries, so we fight for your right to compensation. When calculating your claim’s worth, we closely assess the specific details of your case to determine the value of the following types of damages:


Economic damages are those with tangible monetary value. This includes medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and property damage. Our San Diego car accident attorneys use your medical records, invoices, and receipts to calculate these damages.


These types of damages include those with a non-monetary value, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, and reduced quality of life. Non-economic damages are often more challenging to calculate due to their subjective nature, so having a knowledgeable San Diego car accident lawyer’s help is essential to receive sufficient reimbursement.


Punitive damages are awarded in cases of gross negligence or willful wrongdoing. Instead of a reward for the victim, punitive damages act as a punishment for the liable party to deter them from the same behavior in the future.
