California Auto Collisions
Over 400,000 auto accidents are reported in California every year. More than 150,000 people are hurt in these collisions. Driver negligence is a common cause of auto accidents in California. Numerous forms of driver negligence exist, including distraction, fatigue, and intoxication. More than 1,000 car wrecks are caused by intoxicated driving in California every year. Around 30% of these accidents resulted in death for at least one person.
Drunk driving takes the lives of over 10,000 people annually in the United States. This is about a third of the total number of fatalities reported per year in the US. Injuries suffered in auto accidents caused by drunk drivers are often more severe than injuries that happen in other types of accidents. This is due to the extreme recklessness displayed by drunk drivers.
Injured crash victims are not only faced with physical and mental turmoil, but they also have to deal with stacking medical bills and forced time off of work. This can result in serious financial problems. When people sustain injuries in collisions caused by negligent/reckless drivers, contacting a car crash lawyer is always in their best interest. Victims, when injured by negligence, are entitled to financial compensation that can help pay for the costs associated with their accidents.
