Car Accidents in California
Each year, car accidents claim the lives of thousands of Californians and cause billions of dollars in property damage and leave tens of thousands of other victims with serious injuries. There are many instances where people suffer serious injuries as a result of car accidents caused by negligent drivers.
Distracted driving is a major contributor to auto accidents in the Golden State. Everything from talking on the phone to texting to eating to even changing the radio station is considered distracted driving. In order to avoid causing an accident, drivers must keep their attention on the road at all times. However, we continue to see innocent people harmed every day as a result of drivers who fail to do so.
Drunk drivers are another major contributor to traffic accidents here in California. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is extremely risky and endangers not only the motorist but also pedestrians and cyclists who may be traveling nearby. Other leading causes of car crashes that are reported in California include failing to yield, aggressive driving behaviors, and running red lights.
