Car Accidents in California

In California, 9.1 people per 100,000 were reported to have lost their lives in a California motor vehicle accident in 2017. While the numbers will always fluctuate to some degree or another, people will likely continue to suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries as the result of a sudden accident. It is important, however, to understand your rights in the event that you have found yourself the victim of another driver’s negligence.

Because of the extremely high costs of medical bills and physical recovery on top of lost wages, many victims will opt to file a claim for financial recompense. It is our belief that anyone who has operated a vehicle in a negligent manner, resulting in the injuries or death of another person, should be held accountable for their actions.
