Californians who are obeying all the traffic laws and operating their vehicles appropriately might believe they can avoid an accident. Unfortunately, auto accidents can happen in the blink of an eye and can be caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another. These crashes can cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities. People who have been injured and families who have suffered the loss of a loved one should think about their rights and consider a legal filing to be compensated.

A possible drag race between two cars led to an accident that killed a woman and a man in another car. The car was making a turn when it was hit by one of the racing cars. The victims were declared dead at the scene of the crash.

Three people in the racing car were taken to the hospital with injuries. Two of the three suffered severe injuries, while the other suffered only minor injuries. After the crash, the other car that was racing fled. Law enforcement is still searching for the driver of the other vehicle and the investigation is continuing.

Being injured or losing a loved one in an auto accident is difficult enough without negligence being the cause. With the personal, emotional and financial ramifications that follow a fatal car accident, having legal advice to investigate the case and take the necessary steps to file a lawsuit is key. A law firm that specializes in helping people after car accidents is the first call that the family should make.
