Car Accidents in California
Car accidents result in the death of over 700 Los Angelinos each year, and upwards of 80,000 reported injuries. Two-car accidents are the most commonly reported type of car accident that occurs in California. In fact the number one type of vehicle accident is the rear-end collision. Broadside crashes, such as T-bone accidents, are the number two most common type of accident, followed by collisions that result from a driver making an improper left hand turn. Repeatedly, it has been reported that the most frequently cited primary factor that causes an accident is improper turning by a driver, which includes failure to look before turning across oncoming traffic, failure to properly signal a turn, and turning where turning is illegal.
Driving While Distracted
Many times, a car accident happens because another driver is acting in a negligent way while on the road. This is usually because the driver is distracted while driving. There are many activities that a driver could engage in that may distract him or her from driving safely, including, but not limited to:
- Using a cellphone while driving;
- Changing the radio station or CD track while driving;
- Manipulating hand-held electronic devices, such as GPS devices;
- Reading maps, books or text messages while driving;
