Fatal Collisions in California
Serious and fatal accidents take place each day on the streets and highways of California. According to statistics provided by the California Highway Patrol, approximately 4,000 motorists were killed in car accidents that took place in our state last year. The cause of every crash must be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine which driver should be held responsible. In many instances, the accident will affect an innocent motorist who was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when the crash occurred.
There is nothing more devastating than the loss of a family member due to a car accident. This is especially true if your loved one was killed in a car accident that was not their fault. In this situation, family members may have certain valuable legal rights. This includes the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver whose negligence caused the collision.
