No surprise: Los Angeles metro is a major venue for car crashes

On Behalf of | Oct 23, 2019 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motorists from cities across the country think their locales are unsurpassed for traffic complexity and related accident outcomes.

Southern California residents (especially Los Angelinos) know differently.

They harbor little doubt at all, in fact, that no other metro area in the United States surpasses the sprawling LA area on statistics relevant to virtually any downside-linked driving category.

We underscore that on our website at the Torrance Law Offices of Kenechi R. Agu, a law practice that provides effective representation to victims of third-party negligence spanning many activities.

One of those activities is driving, which is a remarkably frenetic behavior in and around Los Angeles. We note this about metro roadway realities:

  • There are more than 25,000 miles of roads and streets in Los Angeles
  • Area motorists collectively drive a stunning 270 million miles or so each day

Such driving dimensions virtually guarantee a reality that does sadly play out with regularity. That is a serious and sometimes catastrophic motor vehicle accident.

Many victims are often careful drivers who are injured by flatly negligent motorists. Drivers who cause accidents are frequently more fixated on distractions than they are on the traffic around them. Accidents result every few minutes and around the clock across the LA area because a driver was texting, grooming, eating, playing with a pet or engaging in some other dangerous activity.

Accident victims do not have to accept such behavior impassively. Indeed, they can secure help from a proven personal injury lawyer who will aggressively pursue maximum compensation that addresses accountability and can help restore post-crash finances. A meaningful money recovery can defray medical expenses, replace lost wages and compensate for losses that might extend into the future.

We welcome contacts to our firm from individuals having questions or concerns relevant to any personal injury issue.
