In 2011 it was estimated that there were 5,338,000 police-reported crashes with 32,367 crash related fatalities.

While California law requires every driver to maintain proof of insurance, it’s a sad fact that over 20% of California drivers carry no insurance at all. This can often make it extremely difficult for a Sacramento accident victim to obtain compensation when trying to settle with an insurance company. Many victims will need to take the opposing party to court to reach a judgement for their settlement, while other victims are forced to file a claim on with their own insurance company under the uninsured motorist coverage.
In most accident cases, insurance companies won’t pay the full value of incoming claims.
