Car Accidents in California
Vehicle collisions happen in California numerous times per day. Major disruptions are often caused by these accidents including delays in traffic. They make traveling safely a struggle for hundreds of thousands of Californians. Each year, over 150,000 people are injured in car crashes throughout the state of California. Many car wrecks only result in minor injuries for involved parties, however, 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 cellphones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in unsafe driving behaviors.
