VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: I’m Michael Louis Kelly managing partner of Kirtland and Packard. As you know California is one of the states which requires operators and passengers of a motor vehicle to wear a seatbelt. What if you were involved in an accident and not wearing your seatbelt? In California you can still recover for injuries caused by someone else even though you were not wearing the seatbelt. Your damages may be discounted or reduced because of this but it will not act as a bar to your recovery. The determination of whether your damages should be discounted and, if so, by how much will require the skill of a lawyer experienced in this type of case and claim. Our firm has handled many cases involving this exact discounting issue and has obtained hard-fought multi-million dollar results for our clients.
