California Traffic Accidents
Unfortunately, driver negligence is a leading cause of injury accidents in California. Many different forms of driver negligence exist, including intoxication, distraction, and fatigue. Over 1,000 vehicle accidents caused by drunk driving are reported in California per year. Approximately 30% of these collisions took the life of at least one person.
In the United States, drunk driving ends the lives of more than 10,000 people per year. Injuries sustained in car wrecks caused by intoxicated drivers are often worse than injuries sustained in regular auto accidents. This is because drunk drivers act extremely reckless and can sometimes cause more serious accidents.
Along with the mental and physical suffering and pain that injured victims must endure, they are often faced with mounting medical bills while being forced to take time off of work for their injuries. When people are hurt in accidents resulting from negligent and reckless drivers, they should reach out to a car accident attorney in California as soon as possible. Victims are most likely entitled to financial compensation to help mitigate the financial burdens they will inevitably face moving forward in their lives.
