The city of Folsom in Sacramento County, California is named after Joseph Libbey Folsom who bought the land and originally developed the area which was originally known as Granite City. The city was renamed Folsom in 1855 after Joseph Folsom’s death.
Today the city is home to over 73,000 residents. The area is known for its expansive bike trails, but most people associate the city of Folsom with the world renowned Folsom Prison (FSP). Not only did Johnny Cash write a song about FSP and record a live album there, but the prison has also been the location for several popular films and has been referenced in video games.
A City with a Low Crime Rate
Folsom is also recognized for its very low crime rate in comparison to most other cities in the United States. The majority of crimes which occur in the city are property-related crimes such as burglary, larceny, theft and vandalism.
Car Accidents Occur Every Day
However while being a low crime area is obviously beneficial to its residents and visitors, Folsom still has its share of automobile accidents. Minor fender benders occur every day in Folsom and occasionally more serious accidents occur. What those involved in a vehicle accident must understand is that California is a “fault” car insurance state.
Are There Any Benefits to Living in a “Fault” State?
Drivers who live in a no-fault car insurance state are forced to turn to their own car insurance company to receive payment for items such as property damage, lost income and medical bills. It does not matter who is considered to be “at-fault” for the accident.
The benefit of living in a “fault” state is that there are far fewer restrictions in terms of what an injured driver or passenger can do after an accident. In California you can obtain compensation for your losses by:
- Filing a claim under your insurance policy
- Seeking a claim through the insurance company of the at-fault driver
- Filing a personal injury lawsuit directly against the at-fault driver
