California pedestrian accident statistics

Even if you do not walk to work, to the neighborhood store or to a friend's house on a regular basis, individuals in California may be considered a pedestrian even for a short amount of time, by simply crossing the street or a parking lot. No matter what the situation is, however, the fact of the matter is that pedestrians involved in traffic accidents could potentially suffer severe injuries or even lose their lives.

Driverless cars may not be ready for California's roads

Autonomous vehicles may have seemed like something Californians would only expect to see in science fiction shows, but in fact they are being produced and tested on roads across the country. However, two recent car accidents involving autonomous vehicles -- one of which was fatal -- lead to questions as to how safe these vehicles are.

Assistance in navigating instances of serious personal injury

Heading out onto the open road is an activity that is enjoyed by many people every day. Whether it is a car ride to get to and from work or a recreational drive, most trips are completed without complication. Unfortunately, not all rides are incident free. Car accidents can result in serious injury or, tragically, death.

The statistics regarding alcohol-related accidents are alarming

Every California resident knows that getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking is not only against the law, but dangerous. Driving under the influence of alcohol puts the lives of everyone on the road in jeopardy. It might be alarming to many people to know just how many alcohol-related accidents still occur here and elsewhere in the country, considering the availability and breadth of information regarding the devastation that is left in the wake of these crashes.

Too many car accidents are caused by distracted driving

Since cars have been around, people behind the wheel have been taking their attention off the roads. Now that nearly everyone has a cell phone, the instances of distracted driving have increased dramatically. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) reports that nearly 80 percent of all car accidents can be attributed — at least to some degree — to distractions.
