The picturesque city of Santa Cruz, California is the largest city in Santa Cruz County, and also serves as the county seat. Housing a population of more than 56,000 residents, the city enjoys a moderate climate, beautiful scenery, and is a tourist destination for a large number of people each year. However, with so many people traveling into and out of the city, car accidents are an unfortunate concern for all motorists.

Nationwide, there were 10.6 million motor vehicle accidents in the United States in 2007. In California, 3,974 of those accidents resulted in fatalities. In the event that an individual is killed in a car accident, the victim's family may be able to seek compensatory damages from negligent parties deemed responsible for the accident. In all non-fatal accidents, victims themselves may be able to seek compensatory damages from parties determined to be responsible for the accident. Regardless of its severity, all circumstances surrounding a collision need to be carefully examined in order to determine as accurately as possible what actually transpired so that negligent parties are held accountable for their actions in a court of law. Reckless driving, driver inattention, and even dangerous road conditions are all factors that can play a determining role in any car accident.
