Car Accidents in California
Car accidents are, unfortunately, a routine part of driving in California. We all get into vehicles to go to and from our destinations every day. We do not expect that a crash could happen, however, many unsuspecting victims are involved in accidents on a regular basis. As the most populated state in the country, it is expected that California will have many reported car accidents every year. In fact, more than 200,000 people are injured annually on California’s roadways. Sadly, many of these victims will be injured in accidents that are not their fault.
The large majority of car accidents are caused by negligent or reckless motorists. These drivers operate their vehicles in an unsafe manner and place both themselves and all other drivers at risk.
