Fatal Car Accident in Buena Park
Serious and fatal car accidents can take place at a moment’s notice. One minute you might be riding down the road minding your own business, and the next, you can find yourself as the victim of an injury crash. There is sometimes little that can be done to avoid a crash due to the reckless and negligent actions of other drivers on the roadway. All drivers owe a responsibility to other drivers to act in a safe manner, however, in some cases, this duty is violated, and the result is a devastating collision. Last year, hundreds of people suffered injuries in Orange County car accidents that were not their fault.
Under California law, a car accident victim or a family member may be entitled to compensation following a crash. The cause of the accident must be carefully investigated by authorities. The determination of fault is an important event; many drivers who cause serious accidents may try to claim that they are not responsible. Ultimately, who is at fault can decide whether compensation may be awarded.
