Liability In Placer County Car Accidents

Speeding is one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2020, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” There are many other factors that could potentially contribute to a car accident.

  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver distraction

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. There is a rebuttable presumption of negligence on the part of any driver that rear-ends a vehicle in their own lane. The family of any victim that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
