Fatal Car Accident in Los Angeles
In 2022, a total of 312 people were killed in Los Angeles car accidents. This was a 5% increase over 2021 and a 20% increase in 2020. Despite programs such as Vision Zero, which are aimed at reducing traffic fatalities, it seems clear that the number of fatal crashes in Los Angeles is actually on the rise. There are many reasons for deadly car accidents to occur, but most of them happen because of careless and negligent driving. These accidents can also affect innocent victims who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately, hundreds of innocent victims are killed or hurt every year when they are involved in Los Angeles car accidents.
If you or a family member have been affected by a serious crash in Los Angeles, you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. You could have valuable rights, but you must exercise them. Too often, crash victims choose to handle their own cases in an effort to get the matter resolved as soon as possible. While this is understandable, it is often not in your best interest. The insurance adjuster will make you an offer that does not equal the full value of your case. Once the offer has been accepted, you may have no further legal recourse.
