Car Accidents in California
Every year, more than 150,000 people have their lives interrupted by accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers throughout the state of California. Although there are a number of causes for collisions, roughly 80% are caused by the actions of drivers. Distractions, impairments, and engaging in other activities while operating a vehicle can lead to life-altering accidents. Car accidents leave thousands of people throughout California with life-altering injuries.
Although car accidents can happen for a plethora of reasons, approximately 30% of collisions in our state are a result of speeding drivers. Drivers who travel at an increased rate of speed are less likely to control their vehicles in order to avoid collisions. Some speeding drivers are unable to stop at red lights or stop signs and avoid accidents under various circumstances. When victims are injured in collisions as a result of other motorists’ actions, it is crucial that they contact a car accident attorney in California as soon as possible.
