Fatal Car Accidents in California
Being the victim of a car accident is not something that anyone ever expects to happen. Each day, motorists get into vehicles in order to travel to and from their destinations. Driving seems like a very routine activity most of the time, and it is easy to take our safety for granted inside a motor vehicle. Due to the prevalence of negligent drivers on California’s roadways, injury crashes are unfortunately quite common. Last year, more than 200,000 motorists were hurt, and approximately 4,000 were killed when they were involved in crashes that took place across our state. Los Angeles County is especially dangerous, reporting the highest number of crashes of any county in California.
Most accidents are caused by the negligence of one or more drivers. These crashes ordinarily could have been prevented by using reasonable care and caution. When a crash occurs, it will be carefully investigated by police with the goal of determining who is ultimately liable for the collision.
