Fatal Car Accidents in California
The California Highway Patrol maintains data on car accidents that occur in California. According to the most recent statistics, approximately 4,000 people are killed each year in crashes that take place on California’s roadways. The sad reality of car accidents is that most of them are preventable. Many serious and fatal collisions happen because of negligent driving. Speeding, distraction, impairment, and careless driving are among the most common causes of major crashes in California. If the responsible driver had simply operated their vehicle in a safe manner, it is likely that the crash would have never occurred.
Fatal car accidents are a very devastating experience for those affected. There is nothing more heartbreaking than the loss of a family member due to a California car accident. This is especially true if your loved one was not at fault for the collision.
