Vehicle Accidents in California

Car crashes occur in California each and every day. These wrecks usually cause major delays and traffic disruptions, resulting in reduced safety for those driving in the area. They make safe travel difficult for thousands of drivers in California. Every year, over 150,000 sustain injuries in traffic wrecks throughout California. Most vehicle accidents result in minor injuries for those involved, however, thousands of people are seriously hurt and require hospitalization for their injuries. Depending on the nature and severity of the collision, the chances of life-threatening injuries may be increased.

When car crashes cause vehicles to overturn, this is usually an indicator of one or both vehicles traveling at high speeds at the time of impact. High-speed accidents usually leave victims with more severe injuries, including 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 cell phones 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.
