California Accident Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2008, over 3,000 Californians died in vehicle accidents – to be precise, 3,434 people.  Established in 1986, Daral B. Mazzarella has focused his practice for decades on achieving maximum compensation for clients accidentally injured through negligent, wrongful, or illegal acts of others.

“Wrong place, wrong time,” we say, trying to make limited sense of why accidental things, sometime very bad things, happen to good people.

But sometimes accidental things happen that should not. Events, injuries and deaths we call accidents, are not accidents, but mistakes – things done, actions committed in error, from the root mistaka, to wrongly take.

The statistics are there – statistics on serious injury and death caused by:

  • Fire: The fifth leading cause of death in the United States according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2008, someone died in a fire about every three minutes.
  • Drowning: Approximately ten people per day died of drowning in the United States in 2007. Alcohol is associated with roughly half of all water recreation deaths.
  • Motor vehicles: Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of accidental death among people ages 1 to 34.
