Vehicle Accidents in California
Studies show that 40 percent of all fatal vehicle accidents occur at night. The leading causes include intoxication and fatigue. When drivers try to operate their vehicles while under the influence or tired, both circumstances have a similar effect on the body, making them both equally dangerous. They both produce lack of focus, blurred vision, slowed reaction times and hand-eye coordination.
The police are investigating this accident to determine if drugs, alcohol, or fatigue contributed to the cause of this collision. Once they conclude their findings, there’s a possibility that a wrongful death and/or personal injury lawsuit will be filed with the help of a California attorney.
