Car Accidents in Orange County
Among the top three states in the nation with the most recorded vehicle accidents each year, California is notorious for its vast, multi-lane highways and congested interstates, not to mention its major traffic jams. Every year, there are over 400,000 automobile accidents in the Golden State. Tragically, the victims involved in more than half of these incidents sustain injuries. What’s more, over 150,000 individuals were injured in vehicle accidents in California in just one recent year alone.
Of course, serious auto accidents have grown to be a major issue for the whole nation. The increased popularity of cell phones and handheld electronic devices is a serious contributor to upticks in these car accidents year over year. It goes without saying that those who decide to text and drive put everyone else and themselves at risk for serious harm or even death.
But distracted driving isn’t the only kind of careless or reckless behavior that causes accidents. Apart from these, other factors, including driving under the influence, fatigue, and speeding, lead to thousands of accidents and injuries each year.
