The typical motorist will be in three or four car accidents during their lifetime. Additionally, Santa Barbara has an average of more than 630 traffic incidents per year that lead to an injury or fatality. Therefore, your odds of suffering from a personal injury due to the actions of another motorist are fairly high.

It is important to note that if this does happen to you, California law allows you to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Contact a Santa Barbara car accident lawyer at The May Firm to schedule your free consultation.

Santa Barbara’s population of more than 91,000 people causes the area to have a large amount of traffic, and this is compounded by the fact that U.S. 101 goes through the middle of town. When you combine this with the view of the ocean and tourist attractions such as the Santa Barbara Zoo, it is no wonder that car accidents have become a common occurrence.

Unfortunately, pedestrians, cyclists and drivers are all at risk, and the area also experiences an average of 85 serious accidents that are caused by reckless driving. If a motorist has injured you or a loved one, it is vital to take action immediately because of California’s personal injury statute of limitations.
