California Motor Vehicle Accidents
Many traffic accidents are reported in California every year, resulting in many fatalities and even more injuries. The causes of many of these motor vehicle accidents include distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving and failure to observe traffic laws. It is evident that negligence on the part of motorists is the leading cause of these accidents.
Although the exact cause of the accident above was not immediately established, the authorities will gather more information, including witness statements, to determine the cause of the accident. Pacific Attorney Group’s managing attorney P. Mark Shayani believes that separate and independent investigation into the crash is equally important. “A car accident attorney will investigate, research, and review every case thoroughly and explain to clients their rights and answer all questions to their satisfaction,” he said.
Injured victims have an enforceable right under law to full and fair compensation for the costs and losses they suffer. Whether they receive what the law provides for them or whether they receive any compensation at all depends on how well their attorneys can pursue their claims through the intricacies of the state civil legal processes.
