Fatal Car Accidents in California
Fatal accidents occur far too often in California. In fact, more than ten people die daily as a result of these accidents. In many cases, driver negligence leads to fatal accidents occurring. One of the most common causes is speeding.
When traveling at high speeds, drivers face more difficulty maintaining vehicle control and require a longer distance to stop in the event of an emergency. In addition, speeding increases the likelihood that a motorist will lose control of their car and cause a serious accident. Accidents that take place at high speeds are also more likely to result in serious or even fatal injuries for the involved victims.
