Car Accidents in California
There are many reasons why accidents continue to take place day after day in our state. Unfortunately, some actions by drivers are more likely to cause serious accidents that result in injuries. Some of the most common causes of crashes in our state include failing to yield the right-of-way, running red lights, and driving while impaired.
Failing to yield is another common cause of vehicle collisions in the state of California. This happens when a driver does not give the right of way to another vehicle that has the right of way. This can often happen at intersections when one driver tries to turn while another is going straight.
Running red lights is another major factor that leads to crashes in our state every day. This happens when a driver goes through an intersection after the light has already turned red. This is extremely dangerous as it can lead to head-on collisions or other serious accidents.
Driver impairment can refer to anything that prevents a driver from being able to operate their vehicle in a safe manner. This could include actions like being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, being tired, or even just being distracted.
