Fatal Car Accidents in California
Troopers with the California Highway Patrol and Department of Transportation estimate that more than 30,000 traffic accidents resulted in fatalities and major injuries on Bay Area roadways over the past five years. As a result, thousands of victims and their families suffer devastating consequences as a result of wrecks on Golden State roads annually. Oftentimes, these serious accidents occur on busy highways, major thoroughfares connecting large city centers, and local streets that are home to busy intersections and a high amount of foot traffic.
It’s clear that serious car accidents resulting in injuries and fatalities are an unfortunately common part of life statewide. Furthermore, when multiple victims are involved in an accident, they may have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, long-term physical pain, emotional trauma, and expensive hospital bills. Occasionally, victims may succumb to their injuries, leaving grieving families to pick up the pieces as a result of another driver’s negligence.
However, those affected by these fatal wrecks can seek help from a California accident attorney. A skilled California injury lawyer can help victims seek justice and the fair, full compensation they deserve after a crash that’s occurred through no fault of their own.
