Fatal collisions are a serious problem in California

Whether you're in Southern California or in the San Francisco Bay Area, getting from one place to another can be a struggle. Numerous factors from the speed of the traffic to the sheer volume of drivers on the road can combine to result in devastating - often deadly - vehicle collisions.

Losing a loved one can result in devastating emotional and financial turmoil. Unfortunately, fatal accidents are much more common than you realize.

The California Highway Patrol maintains a database of all traffic accidents across the state. The Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System collects data from California and presents it in a monthly record. They recently published a set of data that compared fatal accidents over the last 10 years. While the data shows a general trend downward, there are still several thousand Californians who die each year in fatal collisions.

By way of illustration, in 2004, there were 4,094 fatalities. In 2013, there were 3,104 fatalities, fewer than the beginning of the 10-year summary, but still a striking stat. Even more striking is the summation of those fatalities. Over the decade that this report examines, nearly 35,000 motorists were killed on California roads.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver, it is important to discuss your situation with a skilled personal injury attorney. You might be entitled to recover monetary compensation for your loss.
