Car Accidents in California
Statistics from 2022 provided by the California Highway Patrol show that more than 3800 people died as a result of automobile accidents that took place in the state. In many cases, these accidents are completely preventable. We continue to see innocent people lose their lives as a result of negligence. Some of the leading factors in automobile collisions across California include:
- Failure to Yield
- Passing Stop Signs
- Distracted Driving
Although these acts of negligence continue to cause fatal accidents across our state frequently, impairment is often one of the deadliest contributing factors. In fact, statistics show that approximately 30 percent of all traffic-related fatalities were a result of alcohol-related collisions. When drivers are under the influence, they are less likely to be able to control their vehicles safely and responsibly. After losing a loved one due to a fatal accident, your family has the ability to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible driver.
