The Overwhelming Majority of Bakersfield Accidents Are Caused by Driver Error
It is a commonly known fact that human wrongdoing like speeding or driving under the influence contributes to a significant number of accidents. Indeed, about 90% of motor vehicle crashes are either fully or at least partly caused by human error.
Moreover, of the 1.926 victims killed and injured in Bakersfield accidents in 2015, 187 involved alcohol. Another 282 collisions resulting in death or injury involved speeding.
And, while every state has its fair share of bad drivers, a recent study found that California has the worst drivers n the United States, based on a number of key factors.
In short, this means it is quite likely that your accident was at least partly caused by the fault of another party. In California, you can receive compensation for the proportional legal wrongdoing of another party, even if you were the largely at-fault party. Never assume you are not entitled to any compensation without talking to an attorney at The Ledger Law Firm first.
