California Auto Accidents

Anaheim, CA - One Killed in Car Wreck on Orange Fwy near Katella AveUnfortunately, car crashes in Anaheim and throughout California happen all the time. Each year, about 450,000 wrecks are reported. This is equal to an accident happening once every three minutes in the Golden State. California accounts for approximately 11% of the nation’s auto accident fatalities with about 3,500 fatalities per year. Over 150,000 people sustain annual injuries in these wrecks.

In order for severely injured crash victims to make full recoveries, a lot of them have to be hospitalized for weeks or even months. While in the hospital, they undergo extensive medical treatment and sometimes repeat surgeries. Without this medical care, they may never be able to live their lives to the fullest. Unfortunately, these treatments and even the ambulance ride to the hospital can be extremely expensive. Additionally, while victims are stuck in the hospital recovering, they’re unable to work, resulting in lost wages and, in worst-case scenarios, lost jobs. 

This situation is extremely difficult and stressful for anyone who must endure it. In the event that you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a recent California traffic accident, you could be facing any number of the previously explained issues related to your injuries, and more. However, depending on the circumstances of your crash, you could be entitled to financial compensation that can help cover the costs associated with your injuries.
