Bakersfield Car Wrecks
More than 150,000 people sustain injuries in car accidents throughout the state of California every year. Traffic accidents take place in California each and every day. In fact, these wrecks usually create a safety risk for drivers in the area by causing major delays and disruptions. Most car accidents, fortunately, result in only minor injuries for those involved. However, thousands of people sustain serious or even debilitating injuries due to vehicle accidents in the Golden State each year. Those who end up with serious injuries are often forced to undergo emergency medical treatment that can be expensive. Some may even require surgery and long-term care that could affect their life for weeks, months, or even years to come. Depending on the type of collision, the chances of serious and life-threatening injuries can be higher.
Accidents that are caused by negligence are more likely to leave injured victims with severe injuries including brain injuries, broken bones, and spinal cord injuries. Some forms of driver negligence that often result in injuries for those involved include speeding, driver distraction, and intoxication. 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. These accidents can include people texting or using cellphones while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic control devices, and engaging in unsafe driving behaviors.
