California Car Accidents

California is among the top three states in the United States with the most reported auto accidents per year. The Golden State sees more than 400,000 car wrecks per year. Over half of these accidents end in injuries for those involved. In one recent year, over 150,000 people were injured in California car accidents. 

Throughout the entire country, car accidents have become a serious problem. This is most likely due to the rising popularity of smartphones. People who choose to text and drive put themselves and everyone else at risk for severe injuries and even death. Text messages can wait until you’re parked and aren’t worth risking your life or the lives of those around you. 

Distracted driving isn’t the only form of driver negligence that causes accidents. Other forms, such as driver intoxication, fatigue, and speeding cause thousands of accidents and injuries per year. Those who are injured in these types of accidents often suffer a great deal.
