Fatal Car Accidents in California

Each year, thousands of Californians lose their lives in traffic accidents. In 2020, more than 3,800 people died in car accidents in California, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). T-bone accidents are quite common and account for just about 1 out of every 5 fatal car collisions.

Accidents happen for many reasons. Research indicates that most often they are caused by some form of reckless or negligent driving behavior, such as texting while driving, speeding, impaired driving, or fatigued driving. More than one-third of all traffic fatalities in the US are caused by reckless driving. In addition to the aforementioned reasons, some situations tend to cause T-bone accidents more frequently including:

  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Making a dangerous left turn at an intersection
  • Falsely assuming another driver will stop at a yellow traffic light
  • Illegally driving through a red light
  • Illegally driving through a stop sign

Drivers should be on guard in these situations to try to decrease the likelihood of being in a collision.
