Responsibilities of Out-of-State Drivers

According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), upwards of 35 million tourists visit Los Angeles each year. Many of those tourists arrive from other states and in their own cars, which makes them out-of-state drivers. Encountering an out-of-state driver in L.A. – and getting into a crash with one – might be more likely than you first realized.

In California, out-of-state drivers must:

  • Insure their vehicles: Out-of-state drivers must own auto insurance that complies with California’s insurance rules. The current insurance minimums in California are $15,000 per person for bodily injuries, $30,000 per accident for bodily injuries, and $5,000 per accident for property damage.
  • Report serious accidents: Just like with in-state and local drivers, out-of-state drivers in California must report to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) after an accident causes an injury or at least $750 in property damage.
  • Follow all rules of the road: Drivers are expected to educate themselves on California’s rules of the road before entering the state. Causing a car accident because they did not know the rules does not excuse them from liability.

How to Handle Out-of-State Accident Claims

You can bring a claim against an out-of-state driver in a California court, as long as that court doesn’t conflict with any federal laws or laws in the driver’s home state. Typically, this is not an issue because liability laws regarding car accidents are somewhat uniform. But you should still leave your case up to our attorneys, so you can know with confidence that you won’t run into any issues because of wrinkles in the state, out-of-state, and federal law.

Our attorneys know how to file and manage a claim that is filed against a driver in another state and using a local court. We can also assist if it would make more sense to file your claim in the other driver’s state because nuances in the law would actually make that decision favor your chances of collecting a better recovery. Thanks to our extensive experience and reputation, many law firms across the country know our name, and they are willing to work with us as needed for out-of-state claims.
