Most California Crashes Are Caused by Driver Error
According to findings from Stanford Law School, it is reasonable to estimate that at least 90 percent of motor vehicle crashes involve human error, at least partially. In California, the legal wrongdoing of another driver can entitle you to receive legal compensation. §1717 of the Cal. Civ. Code says drivers have a basic duty of care to protect one another on California roads.
When this duty is breached, you may be entitled to legal compensation. This is true even if you are partly responsible, so long as another party is also partially or even primarily at fault.
Know that California negligence law exists in such a way that intent is not needed to be held legally liable for negligence and the injuries said driver causes. A Ledger Law attorney will discuss the facts of your case and will thoroughly investigate to make sure all legal options and potentially liable parties are considered.
Concord Crash Data Shows Legal Wrongdoing Is a Common Factor in Crashes
California’s 2015 Office of Traffic Safety data found that 731 collisions led to victims being injured or killed. 61 of those crashes involved alcohol, and another 176 were speeding-related in nature. Further, 277 DUI arrests were made.
It is clear, then, that many Concord crashes are caused by obvious legal wrongdoing. If you or a loved one has been injured or worse in a Concord accident, know that we will apply existing California negligence law to the facts of your case and pursue maximum compensation.
