Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their loved ones.
Car accidents are much too prevalent in the Golden State. After all, most people in California require a vehicle for their daily errands, and that’s true no matter where they reside. Due to the enormous number of cars on the road (almost 27 million), California is consistently ranked as one of the most hazardous states in which to operate a motor vehicle. Every day, commuting times are lengthened due to the overwhelming amount of automobiles and trucks using the roads.
On the roadways of California, accidents are always a risk. Naturally, nobody ever anticipates being involved in a collision. Fewer accidents would occur if drivers were more familiar with the most common triggers.
Careful driving may eliminate the need to consider most of these possibilities. Every driver has an obligation to use caution and good judgment on the road. Someone’s “duty of care” was probably broken, rendering them legally responsible for any damages that resulted from an accident.
Thousands of people are permanently disabled every year as a result of injuries sustained in vehicle accidents. Even at lower speeds, automobile accidents may cause significant injuries that need immediate and ongoing medical attention.
