Fatal Collisions in California

Serious and fatal car accidents occur across California on a daily basis. These accidents can occur anywhere at any time. Often, negligent drivers bear responsibility when a fatal crash happens. Commonly, speeding, impairment, distraction, and failure to yield the right of way are contributing factors in a serious car accident.

Losing a loved one unexpectedly is never easy, and the aftermath of a fatal accident can seem overwhelming. If your family member lost their life in an accident that was not their fault, you may have certain legal rights. Under California’s wrongful death laws, the deceased victim’s next-of-kin may be able to bring a claim for compensation against a negligent driver who caused a collision. These claims are very complex, however, so it is important to speak with an attorney right away if you wish to take legal action.
