Fontana car accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, but it is an undisputed fact that the vast majority of accidents will involve human error. Research compiled by Stanford shows that about 90% of all accidents nationwide are at least partially caused by driver mistakes.
These general nationwide trends are only reinforced by a 2017 QuoteWizard study showing that California drivers ranked worst in the nation, jeopardizing the safety of California roads.
Based purely on data, odds are high that if you were injured in an accident it was based on human error. Even if you believe you were partially or even largely at fault, this does not prevent you from receiving compensation for your injuries.
California law still allows you to be compensated for your injuries based on the proportional fault of another driver’s wrongful behavior that caused the accident and the harms that resulted.
Ways in Which a Driver Could Be Found At-Fault for the Accident
In Fontana, the most common at-fault behavior in accidents that led to injuries and deaths was speeding in 2015. 262 collisions were caused by speeding, and another 152 victims were killed or injured in accidents involving alcohol.
Additional wrongful behaviors that can justify a victim’s ability to pursue compensation against a responsible driver include:
- Distracted driving
- Road rage or similarly reckless acts
- Not obeying traffic signs or using improper turn signals
Manufacturers and municipalities may also be liable for your injuries, depending on the facts involved. Our team at The Ledger Law Firm will review your case and tell you whether you are entitled to compensation, so never simply assume there is no path to receiving the money you deserve.
