Car Accidents in California

Huntington Beach, CA – Rollover Crash with Injuries on Gothard St near McFadden AveCar accidents can leave victims with serious injuries that dramatically alter their lives. This is especially true in vehicle rollovers. When victims become trapped inside or ejected from vehicles during rollover collisions, the chances of them suffering severe injuries are dramatically increased.

When people are ejected from their vehicles, they are likely to strike other objects outside. The victim may hit a tree, the road, or another object with such great force that it results in severe trauma to the head and other significant injuries. When a person becomes trapped inside their vehicle, it can dramatically delay the time it takes for a person to get medical care for their injuries.

Unfortunately, we see accidents such as this take place daily in our state, which have devastating consequences on the lives of victims. Common injuries reported in car accidents across our state include:

  • Trauma to the head.
  • Internal organ injuries.
