Stockton Car Crashes

Auto accidents are a common cause of serious injury or even death in severe scenarios. In the state of California, car wrecks occur hundreds of thousands of times per year, injuring thousands of people. Those who are hurt in serious car crashes are often left to deal with painful injuries that can cost them a fortune in medical bills. Sometimes, depending on the circumstances of the wreck, victims may also face emotional turmoil, high-stress levels, and require therapy for things like PTSD. All of this can affect a person’s day-to-day life and keep them from living how they want to. 

Unfortunately, a large percentage of the car accidents that take place in California and throughout the United States are caused by driver negligence. A recent study found that more than 90% of the car crashes that happen in the US are the result of some form of driver negligence. Many different forms of driver negligence exist, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Intoxication
  • Distraction
  • And more.
