Auto Accidents in California
A single traffic accident has the power to alter your life permanently. Within seconds, you may suffer excruciating physical and emotional injuries that hinder your ability to work and enjoy activities you once loved. Unfortunately, each year, more than 200,000 people in California endure severe injuries due to motor vehicle crashes. Despite the existence of numerous laws and regulations designed to protect our residents, these accidents persist for various reasons.
One of the most common issues in California is drivers who disregard traffic signals and pass through stop signs at intersections. This reckless behavior of running red lights poses an extreme hazard and frequently leads to accidents. Another significant problem is drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way, particularly at intersections, which often results in serious collisions.
Operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol is both illegal and highly dangerous. Impaired drivers frequently struggle to maintain their lanes and exhibit slower reaction times, significantly increasing the risk of severe accidents, even if they are not speeding or running red lights. Sadly, a substantial number of crashes in California occur due to intoxicated drivers.
Furthermore, drivers who fail to yield to others are a leading cause of collisions in our state. They often cause accidents when making turns or merging into traffic because they fail to spot approaching vehicles. Impaired drivers further contribute to the dangers on the roadways, as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol significantly heightens the chances of being involved in an accident.
