Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Los Angeles
According to reported data, the year 2014 saw an estimated total of 46,500 traffic collisions within the city of Los Angeles, alone. In 2015, that number jumped to 52,000 and soared again the following year with 55,350 car crashes reported in 2016, according to reports. Collisions, particularly multi-vehicle accidents in Los Angeles and other areas across southern California are often devastating as many cause severe injuries or death. Some of the leading causes of these sudden collisions include careless drivers who engage in actions like intoxicated driving, speeding, and texting while driving among other distractions.
Car accidents frequently 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 loved one can be of paramount importance as you begin moving forward. First and foremost, however, those who have suffered at the hands of a negligent motorist or other entity must understand the need for aggressive representation to fight on their behalf. 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.
