The injured victims and their families are in our thoughts.
Vehicle collisions are unfortunately common in California. After all, most people in California require a vehicle for their everyday travels. California is routinely recognized as one of the most dangerous states to operate a motor vehicle due to the staggering number of vehicles on the road (almost 27 million). The sheer number of cars and trucks on the road causes daily delays in commute times.
Accidents are a constant possibility on California’s roads. But nobody ever plans on being a victim of an accident. Accidents can be avoided if drivers are aware of their most common causes.
If you drive cautiously, you can avoid almost all of these causes. Every motorist is responsible for driving safely and responsibly to avoid putting other people in danger. If an accident occurs, someone likely breached their “duty of care” under the law, making them liable for any damages that arise.
Every year, automobile accidents cause the permanent disability of thousands of people. In addition, many people are seriously hurt in automobile crashes and need continuing medical care.
Fortunately, a qualified lawyer specializing in auto accidents can help you determine what to do next. Accident victims have multiple legal avenues they can pursue with the help of an attorney to recover financial damages.
