Fatal Car Accident in Fontana

Traffic accidents in Los Angeles County have been on the rise in recent years. Since 2015, the County has reported more than 50,000 collisions on our local roadways each year. Government officials have attempted to reduce the impact of serious and fatal crashes by introducing initiatives and plans to reduce the number of these major accidents. However, these efforts have so far not been successful, as the County’s roadways appear as though they are becoming more dangerous. The cause of this increase is not fully known, but most accidents will occur because of negligent driving, including reckless driving, speeding, distraction, impairment, and more.

If you have lost a family member in a Los Angeles County car accident, it is important to be fully aware of your legal rights.
