Fatal Car Accidents in California
In 2021, over 3800 people died as a result of fatal accidents reported in the state of California. Many of these accidents involve some form of negligence. Even though drivers have a duty to provide care to other drivers sharing the road and act responsibly while behind the wheel, we continue to see innocent people pay the price when drivers fail to do so.
