Injury Accidents in California
California can be a dangerous place for motorists. Unfortunately, our state annually reports the highest number of injuries and fatalities in traffic crashes than any other state in the country. Last year, approximately 500,000 people were hurt, and another 4,000 tragically lost their lives in accidents on California’s roadways. These crashes took place for a variety of reasons, but mainly they can be blamed on negligent driving. Motorists who ignore traffic laws place themselves and everyone else at risk. However, it is often too late before they realize the dangers of their actions. Once a crash occurs, an innocent driver or passenger has been affected and suffered losses.
