Fresno Vehicle Accidents
Victims and their families can be severely impacted by a vehicle accident. The negative effect, depending on the severity of the crash, can last for weeks, months, years, or even lifetimes. Over 270,000 wrecks occur in the Golden State each year. Ideally, everyone would walk away from crash sites unscathed. However, this is rarely the case, especially in accidents caused by driver negligence. Over 3,200 people lose their lives in California car accidents each year. Most of these accidents are caused by human error. In fact, statistics show that reckless driving, negligence, speeding, driving while impaired, and other careless actions while operating vehicles contribute to more than 90% of car accidents in the United States.
