Fatal Car Accidents in California

Tustin, CA – Reinne Lim Killed in Auto Wreck on Santa Ana FreewayVehicle wrecks across California take the lives of thousands of people each year. Unfortunately, there are many acts of negligence that continue to cause these fatal accidents to take place day after day. Unfortunately, there are several actions that continue to contribute to accidents taking place across the state. Common causes of collisions that we see include:

  • Distracted driving: This can encompass anything from texting and driving to simply rubbernecking at something happening on the side of the road. Distracted driving is one of the most common and dangerous forms of negligent driving.
  • Speeding: Whether it’s trying to get to your destination quickly or just not paying attention to the speed limit, speeding is a major factor in car accidents.
  • Driving under the influence: This is extremely dangerous and illegal. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol impairs your judgment and reaction time, making it much more likely that you’ll be involved in an accident.
  • Fatigue: Drowsy driving is becoming increasingly common as our lives become more and more hectic. Drivers who are drowsy may lose control of their vehicles, drift into other lanes, and cause severe crashes.
  • Weather: Inclement weather can make driving conditions more difficult and increase the likelihood of accidents.
