Many people drive between the U.S. and Mexico very frequently. Some might make the trip to visit friends and family, while others might make the trip to commute to work on the other side of the border. In California, specifically, it is common to see vehicles with foreign plates in border cities.
Like all other drivers on the road, drivers entering the U.S. from Mexico can potentially be involved in car accidents – which can result in injuries, fatalities, and significant property damage. It is important for these drivers to have the necessary insurance (coverage that applies even in the U.S.). If they do not have the appropriate insurance, they could be on the hook for any costs associated with the incident.
Were you or a member of your family harmed in an accident involving a Mexican registered vehicle? Was it an accident with a Mexican licensed driver? If so, you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible as filing claims against foreign insurance companies can be difficult.

Some Causes of Accidents
When Mexican nationals enter the U.S., they could be surprised at some of the differences that are only obvious behind the wheel of a vehicle. For instance, differences in traffic rules and regulations can lead to incidents. Likewise, the differences in signs and signals can also prove problematic. Drivers that are inexperienced with driving on the U.S. side of the border can quickly become confused and cause an incident.
Without a doubt, these incidents can result in a number of injuries, like head injuries, brain injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, lacerations, crushing injuries, etc. Some of the injuries resulting from accidents involving Mexican nationals and their vehicles can be fatal. Regardless of the cause of the incident or the resulting injuries, victims and their families should explore their legal options as soon as possible.
Can You Sue?
Yes, even if the accident involved a Mexican national – with a Mexican license and a vehicle only registered in Mexico – you could file a car accident claim. Regardless of nationality or vehicle registration, all drivers owe a duty of care to all other parties on the road. If their recklessness leads to an incident, they are breaching the duty of care owed to other parties on the road and can be held accountable for the incident and resulting injuries. If you are interested in learning more about your right to file a lawsuit for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm immediately.
