Fatal Car Accidents in California
Automobile accidents across the state of California take the lives of thousands of drivers and passengers every year. There are many instances where these crashes take place in situations that are entirely preventable. Unfortunately, innocent people continue to suffer fatal accidents due to drivers who engage in reckless actions. Some of the most common causes of fatal collisions that we see in the Golden State include:
- Drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs
- Motorists who run red lights, pass stop signs and disregard traffic control devices at intersections.
- Drivers who wheeze between lanes of travel
- Motorists who speed or travel too fast for road conditions
- motorists who become distracted as a result of using their cell phones, eating, or talking to other passengers
