In this article, the author presents two court cases related to car accident in the U.S. which showed the importance of liability insurance. He mentions the judgments of the California Court of Appeal and the state's Supreme Court regarding the case of Cabral v. Ralphs Grocery Co. which remind the need for both drivers to exercise due care to avoid unreasonable risks. He also notes the Lawson v. Safeway Inc. litigation which warns that drivers can be held liable even if they parked in legal places.
