The COTS has also reported that over a quarter of all traffic-related deaths involve alcohol and illegal drug use, and that this trend has stayed steady over the last several years.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury, disability, and death in America. While car crashes are complicated and may involve many different factors, there is usually some form of negligence at play. In a car accident, negligence means that the driver (or another party) has failed to observe the “duty of care” owed to other drivers on the road, either by breaking the law or by acting in a careless manner.

Some of the most common causes of car crashes that are linked to negligence:

While most car accident victims will need to seek financial compensation through their insurer first, California law also allows victims to seek compensation for their injuries by filing a civil lawsuit against the negligent party. These cases are evaluated on the principle of pure comparative negligence, which means that you may be eligible to file even if you were partially at-fault for your accident. However, your potential compensation will be reduced by the percentage of your involvement.

Damages in a Car Accident Case

When vehicles collide, the resulting injuries can require years of medical care and attention to heal. In some cases, victims may be left with catastrophic injuries – like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and paralysis – that prevent them from ever working in the same field or enjoying the same quality of life.

In a car accident lawsuit, you may be able to seek financial recovery for the following:

  • Medical bills and expenses (hospitalization, surgeries, medications, medical devices, lab tests)
  • Therapy and counseling
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Occupational retraining and education costs
  • In-home care and long-term medical assistance
  • Physical and psychological pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death
