Traffic Collisions in California
California is among the states that record the highest number of traffic collisions every year. Most of the accidents are caused by avoidable human factors, including distracted driving, speeding, traffic violation, drunk driving, following too closely, and more. Other factors such as bad weather and slick roads also cause car accidents but to a lesser degree.
While most of the auto accidents cause property damage and minor injuries only, high impact collisions almost always result in major injury or fatality.
Collisions resulting in major injuries are life-altering, and proper legal action should be taken to alleviate the effects of such accidents.
