Percentage of Negligence in CALI

The total amount of compensation depends on the Percentage of Negligence in a traffic accident. That means, if the car accident victim is 30% negligent in the accident, the amount of compensation he/she legally deserves will be 30% off to all the amount. However, when it comes to CALI's payout, a car accident victim can receive a total of the payout even if he/she is 30% negligent in the accident. In this article, we take a closer look at how the percentage of negligence works in CALI.

Merits of claiming special compensation by yourself

CALI's compensation drastically increases if you are left with residual disability in a traffic accident. In most of the cases, at-fault driver's insurance companies apply for CALI's compensation for residual disability on behalf of you. However, it's better to apply for it by victims themselves so that they can increase the possibility to get higher compensation.
