Liability In Sacramento Car Accidents
A large number of car accidents are due to drivers that make dangerous left turns. According to California Vehicle Code, “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement.” There are a number of other factors that could contribute to car accidents including:
- Drunk driving
- Driver fatigue
- Inclement weather
The family of any victim that died due to the negligence of another driver may be able to seek justice through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and funeral expenses. In order to win a civil claim plaintiffs will have to demonstrate negligence.
