California Auto Accidents

Unfortunately, car crashes throughout California take place frequently. There are over 400,000 car accidents that occur in California each year. On average, a vehicle collision occurs about once every three minutes in the Golden State. California accounts for approximately 11% of the nation’s auto accident fatalities. Of these collisions, more than 150,000 people sustain injuries, and over 3,000 lose their lives in fatal accidents across the state each year.

Injured crash victims often require emergency medical care and immediate hospitalization to combat injuries they sustained during an accident. These treatments and even the ambulance ride can cost a fortune. Additionally, debilitating injuries have the potential to keep a person out of work for days, weeks, or even months following such an incident. This can result in lost wages and financial problems for the victim.

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 then some. You could be faced with debilitating pain due to your injuries while worrying about how you are going to pay for treatment in order to get back to work. This can all be a very stressful experience, especially in the event that your injuries were the result of the negligence of another.
