Car Crash Injuries in California

There are a lot of various factors that can lead to motor vehicle accidents in California. The most common, however, is driver negligence. The leading forms of driver negligence throughout the state are:

  • Driving While Distracted: Distracted driving includes making phone calls or sending texts, drinking, eating, reaching for items, or any other activity that takes your eyes off of the road or your hands off the wheel.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Drivers who are under the influence are a primary source of traffic accidents across the state. 
  • Speeding: Drivers who choose to ignore the legal speed limit, especially during inclement weather, pose a risk to themselves as well as everyone around them.
  • Failing to Yield: When a driver fails to yield the right of way to a pedestrian or another vehicle at an intersection, serious accidents are often the result 
  • Failing to Use Turn Signals: When a driver fails to use their turn indicators, a pedestrian trying to cross the road has no warning and can walk right into a car’s path 
  • Poor Visibility: Many motor vehicle accidents take place at night. Restricted visibility and a greater number of intoxicated drivers make roadway conditions particularly dangerous.
