Fatal Car Accidents in Los Angeles County
In 2022, there were 3,272 fatal accidents reported in California. Los Angeles County led the state in the number of fatal accidents with 704. This number is more than double that of the next highest county, with 316 fatal crashes reported in San Bernardino County during the same time period. Fatal accidents often involve innocent motorists who were in the wrong place at the wrong time when the crash occurred.
Unfortunately, many drivers choose to ignore the basic rules of the roadway and, in the process, they place themselves and all others around them at risk of being involved in a catastrophic accident. California law provides crash victims with the opportunity and the legal right to receive compensation for their damages.
