Fatal Car Accident in Corona
California is the most-populated state in the country. As a result, it is naturally expected that our state will see a high number of serious and fatal car accidents. According to statistics, approximately 4,000 people will lose their lives in California car accidents every year. Many of these major car accidents occur on highways and in other busy and congested areas. Most accidents happen because of negligent driving. At least one driver is typically responsible for a negative outcome following a crash.
If you or a loved one have been affected by a major car accident in California, you should have a full understanding of your legal rights. The difficulty with many car accident cases is determining who was at fault for the accident. Many negligent drivers will contest the issue of their fault. They may try to blame the other driver in order to distract from their own negligence. A close and careful investigation must always be conducted in order to determine exactly how the accident occurred. This is normally done by police at the scene but can also be done by an experienced accident reconstruction expert if necessary.
