California Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can happen anywhere, to even the most careful drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there were 5,687,000 traffic crashes nationwide in a recent year, with 32,719 people killed and 2,313,000 injured. In California alone, 3,000 people died in auto accidents in one year, according to the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS).

Drivers have a duty to exercise reasonable care, whether operating a 3,000 lb passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a fully-loaded, 80,000 lb 18-wheeler. When they fail to do so, they put other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians at risk of serious injury or even death.

“At The Law Offices of Edward C. Casey Jr., our seasoned auto accident lawyers help injured people in the San Francisco Bay area hold negligent drivers accountable for the harm they cause.”
Distracted Driving
Any activity that takes the driver’s attention away from operating the motor vehicle is dangerous. According to NHTSA, texting is the most alarming because it takes cognitive, visual, and manual attention from the driver.
Drunk Driving
NHTSA reports that traffic fatalities from alcohol-impaired driving occurred at a rate of 28 per day nationwide in a recent year.
Driving under the influence of drugs
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH), driving under the influence of illegal or misused prescription drugs can be as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol.
Drowsy Driving
The National Sleep Foundation reports that drowsy driving causes 1 in every 6 fatal traffic accidents.
Agressive Driving
Excessive speeding, reckless lane changes, failure to yield the right-of-way, failure to obey traffic signals and signs, and other forms of aggressive driving create hazardous conditions for other motorists sharing the roadways.

If a negligent driver has caused injury to you or your loved one, you may be entitled to file a claim for compensation for your damages.
