Fatal Car Accidents in Madera
Even though drivers can take precautionary measures to ensure their safety and the safety of those around them, there is no guarantee that others will show you the same courtesy.
Sadly, drivers cause life-changing accidents every day in California. More than 410 people are injured throughout the state daily. These accidents add up to more than 150,000 people harmed in some way by auto accidents each year.
There are many reasons why car accidents happen in our state. In many instances, victims are harmed as a result of distracted drivers sharing the road. Thousands of people are injured in accidents at intersections when drivers fail to yield the right of way while thousands more are hurt by drunk drivers.
While most of these accidents cause minor injuries for those involved, thousands of people are hospitalized and made to endure expensive medical treatments for their injuries. In some cases, victims are unable to work for several months as they go through physical therapy and a long, painful recovery process.
