California Auto Wrecks

Over 400,000 car wrecks happen in California yearly. Approximately 55,000 of these occur in Los Angeles, the largest city in California. This number rises every year, leaving victims and their family members to deal with stressful consequences that can negatively alter their lives.  

Car wrecks can impose lasting impacts on victims and their loved ones. We would like to hope that no one ever gets hurt in an accident, however, people are injured every single day by car wrecks. Auto collisions throughout the Golden State take the lives of more than 3,200 people per year in California while over 270,000 sustain injuries.  

Driver negligence, unfortunately, causes a lot of these accidents. Driver negligence includes distracted, drunk, or drowsy driving, or simply disobeying traffic laws. Over 94% of accidents in the United States are the result of some form of driver negligence.
