Fatal Car Accidents in California
Fatal car accidents are a leading cause of death in California. In 2021, there were 4,161 fatal car accidents in the state, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That's an average of nearly 12 per day.
There are many causes of fatal car accidents, but some of the most common include drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. Recovering damages after a loved one is killed in a car accident can be difficult, but it's important to know what your options are and how to get justice.
Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of fatal car accidents in California. If you've lost a loved one in a crash as a result of a drunk driver, you may be able to recover damages from the driver or the driver's insurance company. You may also be able to sue the bar or restaurant that served the driver alcohol if they served him or her knew that he or she was already intoxicated.
Speeding is another leading cause of fatal car crashes in California. If you've lost a loved one in a crash as a result of a speeding driver, you may be able to recover damages from the driver or the driver's insurance company. You may also be able to file a lawsuit against the municipality if the accident happened on a road that was poorly designed or maintained.
Distracted driving is another leading cause of fatal California collisions. If you lost a loved one in a crash as a result of a distracted driver, you may be able to recover damages from the driver or the driver's insurance company.
If you have lost a loved one in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be wondering what kind of compensation you can seek. In California, families of victims killed in car accidents can pursue damages for:
