Fatal Car Accidents in California
A car accident in California can happen very suddenly and unexpectedly. In some cases, the crash can lead to and involve serious injuries to one or more victims. Unfortunately, some collisions will also be fatal. According to the California Department of Transportation, approximately 4,000 people were killed in crashes that took place in our state last year. This number may seem surprising, but it represents just some of the dangers that exist on our state’s roadways. Sadly, accidents are most often caused by negligent drivers and could have been prevented through the use of ordinary care and caution.
If you or a family member have been affected by a California car accident, you are likely feeling confused and overwhelmed.
