Car Accidents in California
Every day, car accidents throughout the state of California have a detrimental impact on the lives of those involved. Motor vehicle accidents throughout the state of California leave more than 10,000 people injured every month. Many victims are left with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones that require extensive medical treatment. The unfortunate truth is that over 80% of traffic-related accidents are a result of driver negligence. When drivers are distracted, engaging in reckless behaviors, speeding, or acting carelessly, they place the lives of others sharing the road at great risk.
