Injury Accidents in California

As the most-populated state in the country, it is no secret that California’s roadways can be a dangerous place for motorists, and this is backed up by statistics. According to the California Highway Patrol’s Transportation Injury Mapping System, also known as TIMS, there were nearly 500,000 traffic accidents in California last year. About half of these collisions resulted in reported injuries or noticeable pain for those involved. In about 10% of crashes, the victims suffered serious injuries or tragically lost their lives.

An injury crash in California can lead to many negative consequences. On an obvious level, the crash causes physical pain.
