CAR ACCIDENT: I got into an El Cajon California car accident that involved several cars, and I was injured as a result. What happens if one of the other injured victims from the same El Cajon car accident was injured too?
Then depending on the level of fault between all injured parties, an apportionment of compensation will be implemented under California law. California is a comparative fault or comparative negligence system. If all injured parties are not at fault, then all injured parties will be compensated by the party who is at fault. In a comparative negligence system like California, if both parties to an accident are negligent, fault is allocated between the parties. This means that the victim will not be able to recover fully for injuries or damages, but may get partial compensation.
