As technology has increased, it would be understandable for most to assume that car accidents are decreasing in recent years. However, it is a tragic fact that the precise opposite has happened nationwide. In 2016, for example, deadly crashes hit a nine-year high, with car accidents claiming the lives of 37,461 accident victims in 2016. Unsurprising, California reported alarmingly high traffic fatality numbers in 2016 as well, with an estimated 3,680 motor vehicle deaths in 2016 based on National Safety Council estimates. If you or a loved one was one of the many California victims who has been injured or worse in a Palm Springs car accident, call a Palm Springs personal injury attorney at The Ledger Law Firm today to start the healing process.
