Los Angeles Traffic Accidents
California car wrecks leave tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people with serious, life-altering injuries and force them to face devastating losses of personal property, money, and worst of all, loved ones each and every year. Auto accidents in Los Angeles County are, unfortunately, a rather common occurrence.
Los Angeles car accidents take place hundreds of times per day, injuring and taking the lives of thousands of people per year. In 2017, over 90,000 people were either injured or killed due to serious traffic accidents in Los Angeles. Auto collisions are the leading cause of death in the entire state of California pertaining to unintentional injuries. Perhaps worst of all is that a very large percentage of these accidents are entirely preventable, and the result of gross driver negligence.
