Car Accidents in California
Car accidents can have a devastating impact on the lives of those involved. This is especially true in cases where victims are injured. More than 400 people are injured in auto collisions throughout California each day. These incidents add up to more than 150,000 victims harmed each year on roads across our state. Although many injuries are minor, severe injuries can lead to permanent disabilities that continue to impact the lives of victims indefinitely.
Tens of thousands of people involved in crashes are forced into area hospitals where they have to undergo surgery and receive emergency medical attention. Numerous victims are forced to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and receive ongoing treatment for their injuries. Although many treatment options exist for injuries, thousands of accident victims are never able to fully recover. Instead, they are left with pain and suffering from permanently disabling injuries.
