California Auto Collisions
Every year, thousands of people lose their lives in car accidents. California has several road rules established in order to keep drivers safe while traveling. Unfortunately, several people choose to disregard these rules. Recent statistics concerning California car accidents have called attention to the hazards of reckless driving.
Driver distraction takes the lives of more than 13,000 people per year in the United States and is thought to be the reason behind approximately 31% of all traffic fatalities on American roadways.
An average of 67 people lose their lives every day in car crashes across the state of California. Those who are traveling outside of their vehicles are at an increased risk of suffering fatal injuries. Pedestrians do not have adequate protection during crashes, which leaves them completely vulnerable. More than 893 pedestrians end up passing away from injuries sustained in auto wrecks each year in our state.
Pedestrians are often harmed in crashes due to drivers who are negligent in the operation of their vehicles. We see many people struck by speeding drivers, motorists who are distracted by cellphones and other objects, and those who are impaired by drugs or alcohol. Although there are several laws in place to protect pedestrians, we continue to see them harmed at an alarming rate. A California personal injury lawyer may be able to help you move forward from the aftermath of your accident by helping you collect financial compensation.
