Fatal Truck Accidents in California
Car accidents throughout the state of California have an overwhelming impact on the lives of families. In fact, more than 150,000 people have their lives interrupted by accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers throughout the state of California each year. In many cases, victims are forced to go through extensive medical treatment for broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. These accidents often leave people with overwhelming mental, physical, and financial pain and suffering. Regrettably, thousands of people end up passing away as a result of their injuries.
Losing a loved one in a collision can have a devastating impact on a family. Not only are they forced to endure overwhelming mental and emotional consequences, but many families are forced to deal with the loss of an income source and tens of thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements and burial services.
