We all work because we want to live. In order to get to work we most commonly use a car, whether it be our own or using an app like Lyft or Uber. Los Angeles is the largest city within Los Angele County. This densely populated area means that there are lots of cars on the road getting to where they need to and typically with very little patience or consideration for anyone else on the road. In 2017, there is a record of around 6.7 million people with drivers licenses. In 2016, 40,200 people died in car crashes which is a 6% increase since the year before. Unfortunately this trend is not decreasing. People keep driving and statistically the likelihood of you getting into a car accident is pretty high.
Car accidents happen to the most expert of drivers. We can only control so much as we drive to and from our local destinations. We don’t have control over what other drivers are doing in their cars. Accidents happen the most when drives aren’t paying attention to their surroundings because they are on their phones and texting, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or falling asleep at the wheel. Not too long ago, two drivers were killed on the 210 freeway because one driver was driving in the wrong direction. Each car had one driver and both passed away, a 24-year-old and 32-year-old. Unfortunately, there was no way to see who was at fault. This scenario is not unique. This happens frequently, but sometimes instead of death, by the grace of a higher power, some get to live; however, that life is filled with chronic pain. Here at Compass Law Group, PC in Los Angeles, we know how to handle these kinds of claims. Let the experts of our firm help you through this trying time.
