Car Accidents in California
We all drive almost every day, and while we are all fairly at ease behind the wheel, driving can actually be highly risky. Here in California, a sizable percentage of the fatal collisions reported nationwide each year take place each year. Nearly 10% of the 36,096 fatal car accidents that occurred in the United States in 2019 occurred in our state. The average annual cost of traffic accidents to the US economy is $242 billion, which means that many innocent victims end up footing the bill as a result of other drivers’ carelessness. You should talk with an attorney if you want to pursue a personal injury claim after a car crash.
Any auto collision has the potential to be dangerous and cause serious injury. In some circumstances, the weeks that follow an accident can end up being just as terrible as the accident itself. Our California car accident attorneys have handled cases very similar to yours in the past, and that means we are able to perform for our clients. Even though the accident might have ended in a matter of seconds, it might take some time before you are fully recovered from your injuries and other damages resulting from the accident.
