Many accidents which occur in Bakersfield happen on State Route 58, or State Route 99, aka Highway 99, or 99. 99 runs from LA to Sacramento and lots of people take this route for road trips as opposed to I5. While I5 is typically faster, at night at least, 99 is more scenic and offers more options for dining in small towns. Highway accidents can include trucks, big rigs, wrong way accidents, or simple fender benders.
Drunk driving accidents
Occasionally, drivers are aware that their actions will likely lead to dangerous consequences, and makes a conscious disregard of the safety of others. In cases like this, the injured may be able to collect for punitive damages on top of their normal compensatory damages.
Distracted driving accidents
Distracted driving is a form of negligence. A driver who is distracted could be fiddling with their radio, turned around and looking at someone in the back seat, or more likely looking at their phone, sending texts or checking out their Facebook feed. In fact, as we move in to 2017, distracted driving accidents are becoming more common.
