Fatal Car Accidents in California

A fatal crash in California typically occurs very suddenly and unexpectedly. No one ever expects that they will be involved in a major crash. However, innocent victims are affected due to car accidents on California’s roadways every day. Many of these accidents happen due to careless or negligent driving. This leaves loved ones suffering a tremendous amount of grief due to the sudden and unexpected loss of a family member, especially when their family member was not at fault for the accident.
