Fatal Truck Accidents in California

Experiencing the sudden death of a loved one is something that no family member should ever have to bear. However, the unfortunate reality is that innocent people lose their lives due to reckless and careless drivers each and every day. This has the potential to leave surviving family members grasping for answers and overwhelmed with debt. This is where an experienced wrongful death attorney in California comes in. 

Motor vehicle accidents plague roadways across California every single day. In fact, these accidents often cause major disruptions and delays in traffic and make traveling safely a struggle for hundreds of thousands of Californians. Each year, more than 150,000 people are injured in automobile accidents throughout the state of California. More than 2,000 victims are harmed in accidents involving semi-trucks. Although the majority of auto accidents result in minor injuries to those involved, tens of thousands of people require hospitalization and emergency medical treatment for their injuries. Depending on the type of collision, the chances of serious and life-threatening injuries can be higher.

When vehicles overturn after collisions, it usually indicates that one or both vehicles were traveling at a high rate of speed. High-speed accidents are more likely to leave victims with broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries, all of which require extensive medical treatment. There are many instances where car accidents are caused by the actions of other motorists. These accidents can include people texting or using cell phones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in unsafe driving behaviors. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of negligent drivers, they should consult with a truck accident attorney in California as soon as possible. In some cases, victims may be entitled to compensation to help cover the costs of medical treatment and various other expenses they face.
