California is known for having a high population, and, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Because the state is full of millions of people, auto accidents are extremely common.

Texas, California, and Florida are the top three states in the US with the most auto accidents reported per year.  Unfortunately, a large percentage of these accidents end in injuries and death for those involved. In California, every year, over 400,000 vehicle collisions are reported per year. About 150,000 people suffer injuries per year in these wrecks. In some cases, injured crash victims are sent to the hospital where they undergo invasive, expensive, and extensive medical care.

Thousands of American citizens must go through serious pain and suffering due to severe injuries they sustained in auto accidents. Most of the time, injury accidents are caused by the actions of negligent drivers.  Negligent driving is the cause of over 90% of car wrecks that happen in the United States. Specifically, distracted driving has become a serious issue in the past decade. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone feels the need to be on their phone constantly.
