The Southern California highway system is notoriously difficult to navigate. Traffic bottlenecks and accidents occur every day because of the millions of cars that use the roadways. The abundance of freeways in Southern California greatly enhances the region’s accessibility. Since freeway speeds are generally higher, this is a popular mode of commute transportation.
However, drivers have less time to react to sudden changes or emergencies at higher speeds on major highways and interstates, increasing the risk of accidents with severe injuries. Other common causes of car accidents in the Golden State are inattentive driving, texting while driving, drunk driving, drowsy driving, following too closely, and breaking traffic regulations.
A car accident can throw your life into a major loop, requiring you to spend money you don’t have on things like medical bills, automobile repairs, and more. Many people get hurt severely, and their recovery could take months or even years, or they could be permanently disabled. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, you might be concerned about how you’ll cover the cost of your medical bills, living expenses, and lost income while you recover. Depending on the specifics of the accident, the party or parties at fault may owe you money.
