California highways are some of the busiest roads in the United States. When significant numbers of vehicles between locals, tourists, and commercial drivers share the same route, traffic congestion and car accidents are frequently unavoidable. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, 2.7 million people were injured in car accidents in 2018. With so many Americans using motor vehicles as their primary transportation mode, there’s always a risk of being injured behind the wheel.

What Are Common Causes of Car Accidents in California?
Frequently, the driving mistakes of one or more people cause a collision. Errors can be easily made when the driver is not paying attention to the road, where they’re going, or the traffic conditions around them.
Other times, the driver responsible for causing the collision may have been fully aware of their actions and the threat of an accident that their conduct created. Despite that knowledge, they engaged in the behavior anyway. This is frequently referred to as acting reckless driving rather than careless driving.
Finally, drunk or drugged driving is a principal reason for catastrophic car accidents in California. In 2018 alone, the NHTSA reported 10,511 people killed as a result of impaired driving collisions. If you or a loved one survived a car accident with a drunk or drugged driver, please contact our car accident lawyers to see how we can help you recover the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
Common Injuries from Car Accidents in California
Car accidents are a primary cause of personal injuries in California. While vehicle manufacturers add sophisticated safety features in new makes and models, damages caused by car crashes continue to be a serious risk to drivers across the country. Here are some of the most common car accident injuries that occur.
Neck & Back Injuries
Whiplash is one of the most prevalent injuries car accident victims suffer and can be minor or severe. It occurs when a person’s head is violently thrown forward and back in a way that damages the sensitive tissues and ligaments in the neck and upper back. If a person experiences trauma to their spine in a car accident, they may suffer paralysis or even death. Not all spinal cord injuries are fully correctable and may lead to permanent disability.
According to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 17.3% of all traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are caused by motor vehicle accidents. When the head is rapidly tossed during a car accident, the brain may impact the skull, which may cause bleeding and bruising resulting in a mild to traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries require emergency care and, in many cases, may require extensive follow-up treatment.
The arms and legs are especially vulnerable to injury during a car accident and often need emergency and follow-up medical treatment. These injuries are also at high risk for infection and may require physical therapy or surgeries to completely restore function.
Car accident victims may sustain various facial injuries, like cuts and bruises to the face, or more severe injuries, like burns or dental damage. The soft tissues of the face are highly susceptible to injuries during the impact of a crash. A car accident victim may encounter facial injuries when struck by various objects inside the car, including broken glass or personal items.
