Car 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.
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.
