car accident

Are you planning more time in the car this summer, either to enjoy the great weather or to take on a road trip or vacation? You’re not alone. But sharing the road with more vehicles on the summer requires paying attention and planning ahead for safety.

Summer is a popular time to go on vacation, take road trips, enjoy the open air on a motorcycle, or ride a bike or walk around more frequently. Because of this increased traffic and other factors such as teens being out of school and people more likely to drive in all kinds of weather, accidents do happen. Some of these accidents are especially deadly.

The United States Department of Transportation recently found that deadly accidents in June, July and August have grown significantly and by as much as 40% in some states, such as New Hampshire, Alaska, and Wyoming. California, however, led the nation with the most summertime fatal accidents in 2022. Texas and California also had the highest number of teenage fatalities during that same year. Traffic deaths are more likely to happen for teenage drivers in the summertime when they are not driving to school and maybe out on the roads later.

When an accident happens, you may be dealing with the fallout from that wreck for years to come depending on your injuries. In that case, working with your insurance company and a personal injury lawyer may be essential for helping you get the compensation you need to move on with your life.

If you or someone you know has recently been involved in a serious accident, especially if that accident was caused by someone else’s negligent behavior, you need to consult with an experienced California personal injury lawyer to discuss your next steps.
