California Traffic Accident Injuries and Deaths

By Law Offices of Steven A. Fabbro  Sep. 25, 2013 10:35a

Every day news media in the state of California carry stories of traffic accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and buses which lead to injuries and deaths. Most of these accidents are caused by human error or negligence and are not random events. In the Modesto area in June of this year, the driver of a Honda Accord lost his life while his passenger was injured when his car ran off the road and crashed into a tree. The car caught on fire and although the two occupants were able to escape the vehicle, the driver died of his injuries. Investigators at the scene of the accident suspected that alcohol played a part in the tragedy.

On September 17, 2013 an elderly woman was killed in the Santa Ana area when the Nissan she was traveling in was involved in a two-car collision. The driver of the Nissan ran a red light which led to a collision with another vehicle driven by a 22 year-old woman who was driving through a green light. Four people involved in the accident were injured besides the woman who died.

According to the California Highway Patrol, an average of 4,000 traffic accidents is reported every year in Stanislaus County in the Central Valley. The most common car accidents are rear-end collisions at 32 percent.

Even minor traffic accidents can result in injuries to drivers and their passengers, including whiplash, bruises, and broken bones. Cars traveling at higher speeds run the risk of violent impacts in crashes which can result in catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, loss of limbs, eyesight, and other life-threatening and life-changing disabilities. Where someone's negligence or misconduct has caused such injuries, they can be held accountable for damages and losses. Generally, this will involve the victim going through the responsible party's insurance carrier, which can be a difficult process.

Experienced legal representation for those injured in negligence-based car accidents is vital in order to achieve the best results in terms of a settlement.
