Car Accidents in California
Car collisions in California leave tens of thousands of victims injured on a monthly basis. The unfortunate truth is that the majority of pedestrian crashes that take place in our state are a result of drivers who are negligent. When drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to other vehicles, they can crash into them and cause devastating injuries.
We also see a significant number of accidents take place as a result of impaired motorists. Drivers who are under the influence of either drugs or alcohol may not be able to control their vehicles responsibly. They are more likely to make irresponsible decisions and crash into others. We also see a significant number of accidents take place as a result of drivers who are distracted. Given the drastic increase in the use of cell phones and other electronic devices, it is no surprise that more and more accidents are taking place because users utilize them while behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, any negligent action can result in a serious car crash that leaves victims with significant injuries. We see many people left with spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, broken bones, and other serious injuries that have an overwhelming impact on their lives.
Innocent victims who are injured as a result of negligent motorists often have legal options available to help them. Seeking compensation by filing a personal injury claim against the negligent driver who caused you harm can help to provide some relief during the recovery process and beyond. This type of legal action can provide you with the financial resources you need for your medical expenses, repairing your vehicle, and more.
