Auto Accidents

Reasons for Auto Accidents in California

Auto accidents are common in the United States, but they are even more so in California. According to the California Highway Patrol, there were “2,882 Fatal Collisions,” “​162,742 Injury Collisions,” and “230,904 Persons Injured” from car crashes in 2014 (chp.ca.gov, 2018). However, the California Office of Traffic Safety reports that “[t]raffic fatalities decreased 1.1 percent from 3,107 in 2013 to 3,074 in 2014” (ots.ca.gov, 2014). It should be clear that, on average, there are more people injured from auto accidents than there are people who lose their lives, but, in both situations, effective representation in court is necessary to obtain adequate compensation for your injuries or wrongful death. In the same light, the causes of car crashes can be significant factors in identifying the party that is responsible for the accident.

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it’s important to talk about roadway safety. Whether you are driving to visit friends house, going out for dinner, or staying close to home and driving to the store, roadway safety is something that everybody should take into consideration. Over the years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has remained diligent about providing information on the dangers that are present of the roadways during the holidays. Inevitably, the roadways are busier during the holiday season than any other time of year. Busy roadways play a significant role in increasing the risk of injury from an auto accident. The NHTSA has indicated that it has increased its efforts on drunk driving prevention and seat belt safety awareness. According to the NHTSA, “The nationwide seat belt use rate was 90.1 percent in 2016” (nhtsa.gov, 2017). Unfortunately, data from the NHTSA also shows that there were approximately 781 people killed in December 2016 as a result of drunk driving auto accidents, and nearly 4,000 people died from auto accidents that involved drunk drivers.

Personal Injuries from Bus Accidents

Thousands of people ride public transportation every day. From trains to buses, the need for public transportation is more than necessary for the everyday commuter. Although public transportation is one of the safest ways to commute to and from work, there is still the possibility of an injury occurring. The two most common public transportation methods in most metropolitan cities are busses and trains. However, busses are more of a common place to produce personal injuries than trains based on one key element: people. According the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), “Human error is a causative factor in 85% or more of all crashes and numerous motorcoach accidents that have resulted in fatalities where driver fatigue has been determined to be a principal cause” (ntsb.gov, 1999). Fatigue and human error can be avoided, but sometimes people ignore these signs and that’s when people get injured. Negligence and recklessness are top reasons for accidents involving buses. When a driver is tired or not paying attention to the road with enough care, the consequences can lead to severe injury and even death. Age also plays a significant role in bus accidents. The Journal of Safety Research reported risk factors associated with bus accidents, indicating...
