California is home to the most car accidents per year. In the United States
as a whole, car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and
death. A majority of these accidents could have been avoided had it not
been for the negligence of certain drivers. Car companies have been working
on solutions that not only protect passengers when they get into an accident,
but prevent accidents from happening all together. Even with all the advancements
in motor vehicle technology over the past few years, California is still
home to many car accidents and injuries every year. Car crashes are caused
by a number of different factors:
Defective Vehicle Parts: Vehicles are tested and manufactured for safety, but that doesn't
mean that they are immune to error. It is always possible for breaks to
give out, tires to burst, and steering to lock up, among other things.
If a vehicle mechanical failure left you unable to control your car and
caused an accident, then you may be entitled to a claim against your car's
Drunk Driving: If you were involved in an accident involving a
drunk driver, there is no question that you are entitled to a claim. Drunk driving
is an extreme form of negligence on behalf of a driver and those drivers
should be held accountable for their actions.
Distracted Driving: When drivers get
distracted, accidents happen. There are many different potential distraction hazards
for drivers, including fatigue, cell phone use, eating or changing the
radio among many other things.
Unsafe Roads: Sometimes accidents are unavoidable because of the condition of the road.
Many times, brush or trees could be covering vital road signs, roads may
be damaged or a city may fail to scrape or salt their roads during winter storms.
If your car accident was caused by any of the following then you may have a
car accident insurance claim. Your accident does not even necessarily have to involve another driver
for you to be entitled to a claim, so to find out more about what you
may be entitled to after your car accident, contact us today.
