Truck Accidents in California
Every day, hundreds of people are injured as a result of automobile accidents in California. In many instances, people suffer serious injuries as a result of preventable accidents. Some of the leading factors in automobile accidents across our state include:
- Intoxicated motorists.
- Drivers who are distracted by their phones, food, radio, or other passengers.
- Drivers who fail to yield to other motorists.
- Drivers who run red lights at intersections.
- Drivers who pass stop signs.
- Drivers who are reckless by switching lanes without checking, tailgating, etc.
Despite how many laws and rules of the road we have in place here in California, we continue to see innocent drivers and passengers harmed as a result of drivers who refuse to follow them. When people engage in reckless and negligent actions, they place the lives of innocent people at direct risk of being harmed. As a result of these and other acts of negligence, we see people hospitalized daily with traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, severe spinal cord injuries, and other significant injuries that require extensive medical care.
When innocent victims are hurt as a result of motor vehicle accidents, it is only right that they are able to get justice. Filing a personal injury claim is one of the best ways that a victim can secure the compensation they need throughout the recovery process and hold the negligent driver accountable.
