California Speeding-Related Crashes
Reckless drivers plague the roads of cities all through California, and speeding is one of the most common forms of reckless driving and is involved in 30 percent of reported car crashes. Each year, thousands of people lose their lives due to drivers who choose to speed on American roadways.
High-speed crashes often happen with little to no warning, leaving innocent victims hurting most. The force of a high-speed crash is almost guaranteed to cause injuries much more severe than a low-speed accident. In some cases, injured parties can recover lost compensation with the help of a California car crash attorney.
