Fatal Scooter Accident in North Hollywood

Serious traffic accidents and fatalities have recently been on the rise in Los Angeles and in surrounding areas. Despite government initiatives aimed at reducing the total number of serious accidents, the local roadways appear to be getting more dangerous. According to statistics, nearly 300 people were killed in traffic crashes that took place in Los Angeles last year. Thousands more victims suffered injuries, with many of the injuries being serious in nature.

Each crash will be carefully investigated by authorities. When an accident occurs, it is normally because of another motorist’s negligence. Crashes involving scooters, motorcycles, and mopeds are among the most serious crashes that we see. These smaller vehicles offer no protection from the force and impact of an accident. To make matters worse, riders are often ejected when they are involved in a crash. The ejection can lead to serious injuries, in addition to the initial crash.
