Fatal Car Accidents in San Pedro

Officials have shown that in the year 2014, a total of at least 46,500 traffic collisions took place just within the city limits of Los Angeles, alone. Throughout the following year, in 2015, that number increased to about 52,000 before rising again in 2016 with a total of no fewer than 55,350 car crashes reported to authorities. Car accidents in San Pedro and all areas across the city of Los Angeles are repeatedly devastating as negligent drivers frequently cause serious crashes for a wide variety of reasons. Among the most common causes of sudden collisions in the Los Angeles area include reckless drivers who engage in hazardous and utterly irresponsible actions such as DUI, speeding, distracted, and drowsy driving.

According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, car crashes were found to be the third leading cause of premature death for several years. Fully realizing your rights as a victim or a bereaved loved one can be of paramount importance as you begin moving forward. First and foremost, however, those who have suffered unjustly at the hands of a negligent driver or other entity must understand the need for aggressive representation to fight on their behalf as soon as possible. In the event of a crash that has claimed the life of a loved one, family members are encouraged to hold the liable party accountable for wrongful death.

After suffering an injury or the loss of a family member, victims are left with enormous costs due to hospitalizations and often continued care, including years of therapy in many cases. There is nothing more important than obtaining astute representation that understands the sensitive nature of such a time. The victim of someone else’s actions should never be held responsible for the cost of their treatment, and an experienced car accident attorney will help you recover the compensation you deserve.
