The injured victims and their loved ones remain in our thoughts.
The southern part of California is notoriously congested with drivers. Every day, cars pile up and cause traffic congestion. Accidents involving significant injuries are more likely to occur when people are trying to move through congested areas. Commuters in their cars are zipping around at high speeds as they make their daily commutes.
The fast speed and large volume of traffic on the roadways reduce the time available to respond to an unexpected danger or emergency. Distracted driving, texting while driving, intoxicated driving, drowsy driving, fatigued driving, following too closely, and not following traffic laws are other major contributors to car accidents in the Golden State.
A car crash may cause significant disruption to your daily life. After an accident, you may have to deal with unexpected medical fees, automobile repairs or replacement, and other costs. You may be worried about how to pay for medical care, expenses, and lost income if you cannot work for a lengthy period after an accident, especially if you are injured.
Some of the most common injuries sustained in car crashes are whiplash, broken bones, spinal cord injury, and brain trauma. These wounds might be quite severe and life-altering. Your eligibility for compensation from those at fault depends on the specifics of your accident.
