Car Accidents in California

Thousands of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of California every month. In many cases, these accidents are entirely preventable. We continue to see innocent people left with severe injuries due to drivers who engage in careless, negligent, and malicious actions. Some of the common causes of crashes that we see in our state include:

  • Motorists who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Motorists who are using their cell phones to talk or text while behind the wheel
  • Motorists who are traveling too fast for the road conditions or weather
  • Motorists who fail to yield to others

When innocent people are harmed as a result of drivers who engage in these and other acts of negligence, they are often able to take legal action against the responsible party, which can make the process of moving forward less stressful.
