Fatal Car Accidents in California
Thousands of lives are lost every year in California as a result of car accidents. Unfortunately, motor vehicle collisions across our state take place for a variety of reasons. One of the leading factors in car accidents is speeding. When motorists travel above the speed limit, they have less time to react to unexpected situations or to stop their vehicles in time to avoid hitting other vehicles. Speeding not only reduces a driver's ability to maintain control over their vehicle, but it also increases the severity of injuries.
Poor visibility conditions can also play a role in fatal car accidents. Factors such as bad weather, inadequate street lighting, or even poorly maintained roadways can make it difficult for drivers to see each other clearly.
Additionally, failure to yield right-of-way is another leading cause of these accidents. Whether switching lanes or traveling through intersections, when drivers fail to give other drivers their lawful right-of-way, they put lives at risk and increase the likelihood of devastating collisions.
