Car Accidents in California

Each year, car accidents in California claim the lives of about 4,000 people. Many of these crash victims will be innocent motorists who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. A substantial number of California car accidents involve negligent driving. Speeding is the most common cause of crashes, followed by impairment and distraction. Each accident will be carefully investigated in order to determine exactly how it occurred. This will involve police looking closely at the scene, taking measurements, and interviewing any witnesses to the collision. Following this investigation, officials will file a written report with their opinion on how the crash happened.

If you have lost a loved one in a California car accident, our condolences are with you. There is nothing more devastating than the sudden loss of a loved one in a crash. This is especially true if your family member was killed in a crash that was not their fault. Following a fatal accident, you could have valuable legal rights, including the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of your deceased family member. While this certainly does not change the fact that the crash occurred, the wrongful death claim can help to offset some of the unexpected expenses that you are now facing.
