California Traffic Collisions

Fresno CA - Fatal Pedestrian Crash on W Jennifer AveCar accidents are unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence in California. Nearly 500,000 car accidents occur in the Golden State each and every year, injuring more than 275,000 people and taking the lives of over 3,000. This means that thousands of California traffic accidents take place every single day, including injury and death. Sadly, California’s accident rate is one of the highest in the nation. This could be partially due to the fact that California is one of the most populated states in the United States, which ultimately means that the accident rates will be significantly higher.
