Orange County Traffic Accident Statistics
When it comes to causes of mortality and severe injury in the United States, automotive accidents rank high. The great majority of those killed in vehicle accidents in the United States are killed due to human error.
Reckless driving comes in various forms, including but not limited to impairment, distraction, weariness, and racing. Careless drivers are a greater cause of accidents than either severe weather or mechanical failures.
Millions of Americans suffer serious injuries or die every year as a result of automobile accidents. More than 90% of these fatalities may be attributed to the carelessness of other drivers.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash caused by another driver’s negligence, you should, of course, seek legal representation without delay. If you are seriously hurt in an accident, you may have to spend a considerable amount of time in the hospital. Having a family to support while going through this is also a significant source of stress.
However, if the collision was the result of another driver’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to financial compensation. You may use the money to pay for things like medical care, car repairs, missed income, and more.
