Los Angeles Pedestrian Accidents
Los Angeles can be a dangerous place for pedestrians. On average, 2.2 pedestrians per 100,000 people are killed annually in the United States. In Los Angeles, that number is 2.9 pedestrians per 100,000 people. The higher per capita rate of pedestrian fatalities is likely attributable to a number of factors, including population density, a greater number of pedestrians in the area, and a high concentration of negligent drivers. In many instances, pedestrians are killed or injured in collisions that were not their fault. These accidents occur due to driver negligence, such as speeding, distraction, impairment, and more.
