PROPOSITION 213: What is California Proposition 213, and why is it important in my California motor vehicle accident case ?

Under California Proposition 213, passed in 1996, uninsured motorists cannot recover for pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life damages even if an accident is not their fault. You could be rendered completely disabled by the fault of another insured motorist and you would be denied any damages other than medical bills, property damage, lost wages and other out-of-pocket economic losses.  Thus, it is very important to have a valid liability auto insurance policy in place on your motor vehicle at all times in California!
