Traffic Wrecks in Stockton
California sees hundreds of thousands of car accidents take place every year. Over 400,000 traffic collisions occur each year in the Golden State, injuring over 200,000 and taking the lives of nearly 4,000 people. Unfortunately, a large percentage of these collisions are the result of some form of driver negligence. In 2018, the top leading causes of traffic accidents in California were as follows:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Broken traffic signals
- Failure to yield
- Drowsy driving
- Bad weather
- Dangerous roadways
Driver error is the most common cause of traffic accidents in California. Choosing to drive at night may increase your risk of becoming involved in a collision due to a higher number of intoxicated drivers on the road. Lack of visibility is also a risk factor for auto accidents that happen at night in California. Some other common causes of vehicle accidents are vehicle defects, such as defective tires or bad brakes, roadway defects, potholes, debris, dangerous construction zones, poorly designed roadways, and missing guardrails.
Many of the auto accidents that take place in the Golden State allow victims the right to file a personal injury claim for damage reimbursement. A successful car crash claim could pay the victim for several losses such as medical costs, lost wages, and vehicle repairs. An auto accident settlement in California may total $10,000 or less, or it could total much more. The amount of a settlement depends on a wide range of factors ranging from the severity of the injuries suffered to the long-term impact of the injuries.
