Fatal Car Accidents in Los Angeles County

According to official statistics, the year 2015 saw an estimated 52,000 traffic collisions just within the city of Los Angeles, alone. Of these numerous incidents, at least 584 people lost their lives, according to reports. Collisions not only in the city but car accidents in Los Angeles County and other areas around southern California are often severe as many leads to devastating injuries or death. The total number of crashes rose in 2016 to 55,350, and some of the leading causes of these accidents included careless motorists who engage in actions such as intoxicated driving, speeding, and distracted driving.

Car accidents often result in not only physical damage and injuries but emotional and financial turmoil as well. Fully understanding your rights as a victim or bereaved loved one can be of the utmost significance as you begin working on moving forward. First and foremost, however, those who have suffered at the hands of a negligent driver or other entity must recognize the need for aggressive representation to fight on their behalf. In the event of a crash that has claimed the life of a family member, loved ones are encouraged to hold the responsible party liable for wrongful death.

After suffering an injury or the loss of a family member, victims are left with tremendous costs due to hospitalizations and continued care, including years of therapy in many cases. There can often be 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.
