Car Accidents in California
An automobile accident can be incredibly devastating. Unfortunately, thousands of people are hurt as a result of accidents in California every month. Quite often, these accidents are caused by negligent drivers.
One of the most common causes of car accidents in our state is drivers who are negligent. There are several forms of negligence that lead to devastating accidents taking place.
One of the most common contributing factors to crashes in California is speeding. Drivers who are traveling too fast are more likely to lose control of their vehicle and crash into other objects or vehicles around. Speeding not only increases the chances of accidents happening, but it also increases any injury severity suffered in the accident. Speeding is just dangerous and should not be done.
Additionally, we see many accidents take place as a result of impairment. This can include operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, whether the drugs or over the counter or illegal. Any type of substance can drastically alter your ability to make responsible decisions while operating your vehicle. As a result, innocent people are harmed every day as a result of impaired drivers.
Finally, failing to yield is another common factor that contributes to many accidents in our state. Whether a driver is switching lanes or turning at an intersection, it is important that they yield the right of way to others. When drivers fail to do so, they can crash into other vehicles nearby and cause devastating accidents.
