Fatal Car Accidents in Los Angeles

According to officially reported statistics, 2014 saw an estimated total of at least 46,500 traffic collisions just within the city of Los Angeles. The following year, in 2015, that number jumped to 52,000 and then ascended again the next year with a total of 55,350 car crashes reported in 2016. Car crashes, especially car accidents in Los Angeles and other areas throughout southern California are frequently devastating as many cause serious injuries or death. It is important to know the leading causes of such collisions which include actions such as intoxicated driving, speeding, and texting while driving among other distractions.

Car accidents often result in not only physical damage and serious injuries but emotional and financial turmoil as well. Fully realizing your rights as a victim or a bereaved family member can be of paramount importance as you begin moving forward. First and foremost, however, those who have suffered at the hands of a reckless motorist or other entity must understand the need for aggressive representation to fight on their behalf. In the event of a collision that has claimed the life of a loved one, families are encouraged to hold the liable party responsible 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.
