Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Los Angeles

Throughout the year 2018, pedestrian collisions with motor vehicles tragically claimed the lives of at least 893 people along California roadways, according to official reports. This figure represents a 26% increase in deadly auto-pedestrian crashes from the numbers that were recorded back in 2014. Altogether, between the years of 2009 and 2018, a total of around 7,500 pedestrians were killed in similar incidents all around the state, many of which were officially reported as fatal pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles. The total death rate of pedestrian collisions in California is about 25% over the national average.

There is no excuse for such actions as distracted or intoxicated driving, and in the case of an irresponsible motorist who has caused a fatal pedestrian accident, loved ones are encouraged to hold that party accountable for wrongful death in Los Angeles. The anguish of losing a family member in an unexpected collision is a life-alternating occurrence and finding compassionate representation that understands the sensitive nature of such a time can be vital.

Serious accidents don’t only cause immense physical and emotional suffering but also leave surviving parties with the high costs of hospitalization and continued medical treatment or funeral costs, among other financial burdens. When a reckless party causes the suffering of another person, that party must be held responsible for compensating the victims. An aggressive pedestrian accident attorney in Los Angeles County will assist you along the often turbulent road to financial recompense. The bottom line is that there is absolutely never any viable reason why innocent people should suffer any more than they already have at the hands of a negligent party.
