Woman Killed in San Juan Capistrano Crash

In 2018, 3,563 people lost their lives in California car accidents. While this number was a slight decrease from the prior year, our state remains one of the deadliest in the nation when it comes to traffic crashes. Each day across our state, innocent lives are lost due to the reckless and irresponsible actions of negligent drivers.

When a fatal crash takes place, a careful investigation will follow in order to determine the cause of the crash. An experienced California wrongful death lawyer will also want to conduct their own crash reconstruction using a team of experts. This is important because police crash investigations are not always complete or may leave out important details.
