Deadly Car Accidents in California

Each year, more than 3,000 people will lose their lives in car accidents that take place in California. This total accounts for more than 10% of all annual traffic fatalities across the country. Unfortunately, many people who are killed in these collisions are innocent motorists who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fatal crashes are some of the most devastating events that can occur and they cause a tremendous amount of stress for family members and loved ones.

Under California law, family members may be entitled to compensation when their loved one has been affected by the actions of a negligent driver. Our state’s wrongful death statutes are complicated, however, and these cases should only be handled by an experienced attorney. The following types of compensation may be available:

  • Funeral and medical costs
  • Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of love and affection
  • Punitive damages
