Car Crashes in California

Roadways across California are plagued by motor vehicle collisions every day. Major delays and disruptions are often caused by these accidents, making traveling a safety risk for many drivers in California. Over 150,000 people sustain injuries every year in automobile accidents in the Golden State. Although many crashes only result in minor injuries,  tens of thousands of people require emergency medical treatment and even hospitalization for their injuries. The chances of serious and life-threatening injuries can be higher depending on the type of accident.  

There are many instances, unfortunately, where vehicle collisions are the result of the negligent actions of other motorists. These accidents can include people texting or using cellphones 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 car accident attorney in California as soon as possible.
