Pedestrian Accidents in Los Angeles

In 2022, according to preliminary data from the Los Angeles Police Department, 312 people were killed in Los Angeles car accidents, and more than 1,500 victims were injured. A total of 159 of these fatalities were attributed to pedestrian accidents. Undoubtedly, a substantial number of these serious injuries were also suffered by pedestrians. It is estimated that more than 80% of pedestrian accidents in Los Angeles will end with some type of injury. Due to their vulnerability, pedestrians are often very seriously hurt when they are hit by a vehicle.

The cause of every pedestrian accident must be closely examined by police. Determining who was responsible for causing the accident can be complicated. Often, different versions of the story will exist, and there may not have been an eyewitness to the collision. In this instance, police must carefully look at all of the surrounding circumstances to make a determination as the fault. The scene will be surveyed, and measurements and photographs will be taken.
