Vehicle Accidents in Antioch

Although we can try to be as mindful as possible in ensuring that we do not put other motorists sharing the roads with us in harm’s way, there is no guarantee that other drivers that we encounter will give us the same careful consideration. Regrettably, drivers cause life-altering collisions in the Golden State every single day. Actually, over 410 people are hurt in vehicle accidents throughout California daily. These wrecks add up to more than 150,000 people harmed in some way by auto accidents each year. 

Although minor injuries are often the outcome for those involved in these crashes, tens of thousands of people sustain serious injuries and are forced into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. Sometimes, victims must stay out of work for several months as they go through therapy and endure the long and arduous process of recovery. Although it would be nice if everyone was able to overcome their injuries, thousands of people are left with permanent impairments each year as a result of their injuries.

There are numerous reasons why car accidents occur in our state. In many cases, victims are harmed as a result of distracted drivers sharing the road. Thousands of people are injured in accidents at intersections after drivers fail to yield the right of way while thousands more are harmed by impaired drivers. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of negligent drivers, they should consult with a car crash lawyer in Antioch as soon as possible. Working with a skilled and aggressive legal team in the aftermath of your crash can make an enormous difference in your ability to recover.
