Injury Accident in Whittier

Los Angeles County is one of the busiest areas in the country for motorists. With hundreds of thousands of drivers on our local roadways each year, car accidents are an expected event. Still, no one gets into a car expecting to be involved in a major car accident. But the reality is that serious accidents take place daily on our roadways. These accidents will also affect innocent motorists. A car accident in Whittier can cause more than a minor inconvenience. According to statistics, about 12% of local car accidents will result in serious injuries requiring hospitalization and a higher level of medical care.

Motorists may wonder what they can do to lower their chances of being involved in an accident. The main thing that most people can do is drive safely and defensively. Drivers should avoid speeding, reckless driving, texting while driving, or any other dangerous behavior that typically leads to accidents. By engaging in only safe behaviors, many driving hazards can be avoided. However, please keep in mind that not all accidents are avoidable.

In some cases, negligent drivers will cause a crash that cannot be avoided. Head-on collisions, rear-end crashes, and sideswipe accidents are among those collisions that can happen even when all other drivers are operating their vehicles safely. Unfortunately, these types of accidents also result in serious and sometimes permanent injuries.
