Multi-Vehicle Accidents in California

Car accidents take place in California nearly every minute of the day. A serious car accident often occurs suddenly and without any warning. When a crash takes place, police and investigators must determine how the crash happened. This includes identifying which driver’s negligence contributed to the crash.

In California, a negligent driver who causes injuries will be held responsible for the damages suffered by other motorists. This includes pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and possibly more. When you or a loved one have been injured due to negligence on our roadways, an experienced California car accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you need.
