Car Accidents in California
Car accidents in California lead to tens of thousands of people being injured every year. Unfortunately, more than half a million accidents are reported statewide, many of which are caused by negligent and reckless drivers. Some of the leading factors in automobile collisions include:
- Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver's reaction time and increases the severity of accidents.
- Distracted Driving: The use of mobile phones, eating, or even talking to passengers can take the driver’s attention off the road and lead to an accident.
- Impaired Driving: Alcohol or drugs impair judgment and coordination, leading to accidents.
Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be incredibly difficult. Many victims face significant financial burdens that make the recovery process even more challenging. After being hurt in an accident due to the negligence of another driver, car crash victims are able to pursue legal action against the responsible drivers. A personal injury claim can help those harmed collect compensation for some of the losses and damages they face. This can include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
In California, the state follows the doc train of comparative negligence. If you contributed to the accident in any way, the amount of money you recover for these and other damages can be reduced. This makes it essential that you work with a Los Angeles car accident lawyer who can prove that the defendant is at fault for your accident so you can recover the maximum compensation possible.
