Fatal Car Accidents in California
Motor vehicle accidents in the state of California take the lives of nearly 4,000 people every year. These accidents are often entirely preventable. However, we continue to see a substantial number of people lose their lives in accidents as a result of driver errors.
Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol attribute to nearly 10% of fatal crashes in our state each year. Distracted driving is the second leading cause of fatal accidents in our state, accounting for more than 9% of traffic-related fatalities annually.
Other leading causes include speeding, failing to yield the right of way to others, and drivers who run red lights or pass stop signs at intersections.
Although we have a duty of care to other motorists sharing the roads with us, we continue to see countless people lose their lives due to drivers who engage in these and other senseless acts while operating their vehicles.
