Deadly Car Accidents in California

Serious and fatal crashes take place every day on California’s roadways. Most major crashes happen very suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving victims little time to react in order to avoid the accident. Negligence, including reckless driving, speeding, distraction, and impairment, are among the most common causes of fatal car accidents in California. The cause of each accident must be closely investigated by authorities in order to determine who should be held responsible.
