California Accident Lawsuit Overview
California, with about 3,000 auto accident fatalities every year, is the most unsecure state for motorists and pedestrians in the United States. The state accounts for almost one in every 12 traffic fatalities in the country largely due to traffic violation, DUI, speeding, and distracted driving. On 31 May 2012, eight students were seriously injured after a speeding pickup truck drove into a crowded crosswalk in Hemet after overstepping the red light. A day before, a mid-night head-on collision at Interstate Highway 20 resulted in the death of three children and a 27-year-old man. Actor Levar Burton’s car was hit from behind by a police official at Van Nuys while wife of NFL star Joe Senser was found guilty in a hit-and-run case that led to death of a man. A few months back, Burton had luckily escaped an accident at Beverly Boulevard. On May 22, 2012, a woman and her three children landed in the hospital with serious injuries after a car hit them at Thousand Oaks crosswalk. Two days later, police arrested well-known adult movie star Jenna Jameson on DUI charges after her car ran into a roadside pole.
In April 2012, singer and actress Amanda Bynes was accused of causing a hit-and-run accident on a California freeway. In 2010, Disney star Demi Lovato was found to be involved in an accident in Los Angles while MTV host Rikki Mongeon went into coma due to head injuries received at an accident in Bakersfield. In 2009, Los Angeles lost promising pitcher Nick Adenhart in an accident that also resulted in two more deaths.
