Fatal Car Accidents in California

Auto accidents throughout the state of California claim more than 3,000 lives annually. Although many accidents are preventable, they continue to claim the lives of innocent victims. Roughly 80% of collisions are caused by drivers who engage in the following activities:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving while distracted (by cell phones, food, or talking)
  • Driving recklessly
  • Speeding
  • Defective auto parts
  • Unfamiliar roadways

Although we can take various measures to ensure others are safe while traveling with us, a lot of other drivers do not take the time to consider others sharing the road with them. As a result, the lives of victims and their families are forever changed.

When people lose their lives in traffic-related incidents, their families are often left with stacking financial obligations related to funeral arrangements and property damages.

    The team at Agnew Brusavich cannot come more highly recommended. If you should have some sort of personal injury case, particularly if you are a cyclist, I cannot think of a better team to handle a personal injury case.
