Liability In Car Accidents
There are a number of factors that contribute to car accidents every year. Far too often accidents happen because drivers follow each other too closely. According to California Vehicle Code 21703, “The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicle and the traffic upon, and the condition of, the roadway.” Victims of car accidents may be entitled to financial damages through a bodily injury claim.
