Motorists using California roadways face the risk of being involved in a car accident. However, those who engage in certain behaviors -- such as drinking and driving -- may be more prone to being involved in an accident. Unfortunately, alcohol is believed to be a factor in a car accident that could potentially result in a wrongful death lawsuit.
When most people in California leave their residences, they likely have little expectation that it will be the last time that they will do so. Unfortunately, the actions of others -- including the decision to drive after consuming drugs or alcohol -- often puts others at risk. In fact, a fatal accident that happened last year could potentially result in a wrongful death lawsuit.
All drivers are aware of the potential hazards they face while traveling on California roadways. As a result, many take certain precautions, including obeying the speed limit and attempting to remove distractions while driving. Unfortunately, even the safest of drivers are sometimes unable to avoid the actions of others who may not be as cautious. In fact, the family of a deceased driver may be considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit following a recent crash.
Most people realize that there are certain risks associated with driving. As such, they take precautions to protect themselves, such as ensuring they are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol while driving. Unfortunately, there is sometimes little that they can do to protect themselves from others on the roadways who fail to take the same precautions. In fact, a woman and her unborn child were recently killed in a California crash allegedly caused by a drunk driver; her surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit as a result.
There are drivers in California who take risks that put their lives -- as well as those they may encounter -- in danger. Unfortunately, even the safest of drivers are not always able to avoid the actions of the former. In fact, police are investigating a fatal accident that recently took the life of a driver.
Safe drivers in California and across the country are constantly on the lookout for others who may be driving in a way that could ultimately result in a crash. Unfortunately, not all unsafe behaviors can be anticipated or responded to in time to avoid an accident.

The family may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit as a result.
A car accident can happen at any moment. Because of this potential, drivers in California and across the country must remain vigilant at all times. Failing to do so could have serious consequences, potentially even resulting in a wrongful death.
Conditions on California roadways could change in a split second. Even though a driver may have experienced clear roads with relatively little traffic, a car accident, for example, could quickly cause an extensive back-up. As such, drivers -- including those who drive as part of their jobs -- must remain constantly vigilant. Unfortunately, a recent accident that resulted in the loss of three lives could result in wrongful death claims.
Even in a short drive, a driver will likely encounter multiple traffic signs and signals. While it may be easy to become desensitized to such features, their overall importance makes it necessary for drivers to carefully attend to the information provided in these signs. Unfortunately, a recent crash in California -- that could ultimately lead to a wrongful death lawsuit -- has resulted in the loss of two lives.
Car accidents happen every single day in California. While a driver is expected to take measures to prevent an accident -- such as obeying posted speed limits -- it is certainly expected -- and legally required -- that he or she will stop to render aid in the event an accident does occur. Unfortunately, a young man is now facing criminal charges following an accident that could also result in a wrongful death lawsuit.
