Common Causes of Auto Accidents in Southern California
Many car crashes that occur in Los Angeles and elsewhere in California are caused by one driver’s or the other’s negligent – or careless, in other words – acts. This means (unfortunately) that many California car wrecks are avoidable and could be prevented through greater care and safer driving behaviors. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s 2014 statistics:
In 2014, 882 drivers and motorcyclists killed in traffic fatalities were under the influence of alcohol to an extent greater than 0.08;
During 2013, 32 percent of drivers who were killed in traffic crashes tested positive for one or more illegal drugs;
Some of the most common causes of traffic collisions include: distracted driving/texting while driving, speeding, and failing to yield the right of way/failing to obey traffic control signs and signals.

In so doing, we’ll help maximize your chances of obtaining monetary compensation from these at-fault parties so that you do not have to bear the expenses and costs of your injury and recovery.
