Fatal Car Accidents in California
Fatal car crashes take place far too often here in California. In fact, thousands of people lose their lives as a result of auto accidents in our state annually. There are many instances where victims end up dying as a result of car crashes caused by negligent motorists. We see far too many innocent people lose their lives as a result of drivers who are drowsy, impaired, or distracted. When trucks are involved in these vehicle accidents, the chances of fatal injuries are drastically increased.
Semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds while fully loaded. This has the potential to cause severe damage to anything they come in contact with. Unfortunately, hundreds of fatal truck crashes take place in our state annually. Losing a loved one as a result of a fatal truck crash can be incredibly challenging to deal with.
