Single vs. Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Modesto

Modesto Car Accident Attorney

California is one of the most dangerous states for drivers and vehicle occupants. It is reported that in a recent year, over 3,000 fatalities took place on the streets and highways within our state borders. Car accidents are the leading cause of accidental death for those under the age of 34; any time you venture out in a vehicle, you are at risk of injury or death if a negligent driver is sharing the road. Single- and multi-vehicle accidents are equally dangerous. Tragically, many fatal accidents involve a driver under the influence of alcohol. 30% of all accidents that took place in our state that year were alcohol-related. In 2010, a drunk driver caused 3 out of 12 fatal accidents in Modesto.
