Car Accidents in California
Being involved in a car accident can have a devastating impact on your life immediately. Many victims are rushed right from the scene of their accidents and admitted into area hospitals for emergency care. Unfortunately, more than 500 accidents are reported daily in California that result in injuries. These accidents add up to more than 200,000 people being hospitalized every year in our state.
We see victims left with serious injuries on a daily basis as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Injuries that are reported most often after automobile accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries: These serious injuries can leave victims permanently paralyzed. As a result, many victims who suffer spinal cord injuries have to depend on medical devices and other people indefinitely.
- Traumatic brain injuries: TBIs often results in balance issues, mood problems, and memory issues. These injuries can be incredibly debilitating and have a lasting impact on the lives of those harmed.
- Cuts and lacerations: These painful injuries can result in permanent scarring and disfigurement. In severe cases, victims may even experience muscle and nerve issues.
