Two-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Car accidents are one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017.
Most intersection accidents are caused by a driver who was carelessly driving or on their cell phone and not paying attention to the road. Intersection accidents could also occur when a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs and/or simply speeding and passing a red light.
Since California is a ‘comparative fault’ state, you can collect compensation even if you played a role in the cause of the accident that you’re involved in. You can rely on our relentless trial attorneys to work vigorously to assure that liability is allocated accurately in your legal case so that you get the total compensation you deserve under the law.
While it’s technically possible to represent yourself in a car accident case, it is not the wisest course of action. Self-representation can put you at risk of making mistakes and missing your opportunity to recover for your damages.

When facing cases like this, it’s essential to have an experienced California personal injury attorney conduct a private investigation to prove the negligence of the guilty party.
