Auto Crashes in California

California car accidents happen all the time. The state sees thousands of car wrecks per day. A large percentage of these accidents result in severe injuries for those involved. Some of the common injuries that often result from car crashes in California include: 

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Whiplash

Unfortunately, the majority of these accidents are caused by driver negligence. Drivers who are distracted, fatigued, or overtired cause hundreds of thousands of accidents in the state of California every year. The collisions that often result from these types of actions are usually more severe than other types of accidents.
