Car Accidents in California
Every year, car accidents leave more than 150,000 people with injuries in the state of California. In some cases, victims are able to go on with their lives with minimal interruption. This is not always the case. In fact, thousands of accident victims suffer life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment, surgery, and therapy.
Car accidents can take place for a variety of reasons. Statistics show that roughly one-third of all accidents across California are caused by speeding driving. Accidents that involve speeding or reckless drivers are more likely to result in catastrophic injuries for victims. In many cases, victims suffer from brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones that require extensive medical treatment. Treatment for devastating injuries is not only painful, but it is extremely expensive as well.
