California Car Accidents

With a population of nearly 40 million people, California’s roadways often get busy and congested. Along with high traffic volume and busy roadways comes the potential of car accidents. According to statistics, more than 250,000 accidents are reported on our state’s roadways each year. Not all of these crashes result injuries but many of them will. Being the victim of an injury crash can mean a long recovery, physical pain, and emotional trauma.
