In 2012 alone, over 35,000 individuals in the United States died as a result of traffic accidents and an additional 3.8 million suffered injuries on the roadways, according to National Safety Council estimates. In the same year, California saw 2,758 fatal accidents on its roads, evidencing an extremely hazardous situation for drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike.

Similarly alarming is the fact that Los Angeles County was the site of an alarming number of serious auto accidents in 2012, tallying 585 fatalities and 50,622 injuries. Data from the U.S Department of Transportation and its National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has revealed that the city of Los Angeles ranked second in the number of pedestrian deaths resulting from automobile crashes. NHTSA statistics indicate that roughly 1 in 5 traffic deaths in California involved pedestrians, with a shocking number of them characterized as hit-and-run collisions. Clearly, car accidents in Los Angeles are impacting far more than just those riding in the vehicles.

Deadly and serious auto accidents in Los Angeles stem from numerous factors, but the leading causes of crashes continue to include things such as excessive speed, improper turns, driving on the wrong side of the road and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and distracted driving. The sad truth is that anyone traveling on the local streets, main roads or highways in California runs the risk of falling victim to the negligence or preventable error of another.

Regardless of whether a crash is caused by a car, truck, motorcycle, taxicab or other vehicle, accidents on the roads are known for producing debilitating injuries, loss of income, emotional and psychological distress and massive disruption to the lives of those involved and their families. NHTSA research suggests that motor vehicle crashes cost Americans approximately $871 billion per year in actual economic losses, reduced quality of life and other harm. Mounting medical bills, the costs of rehabilitation and an ongoing inability to work can bring almost anyone to the brink of financial ruin.

At Ellis Law, we understand the the life-altering damage a serious car accident can do to individuals, families and households. Traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and spinal cord trauma often require extensive treatment and continuing therapy that the majority of people simply cannot afford without significant assistance. Fortunately, the law provides victims the opportunity to pursue justice and full compensation from those responsible for the harm sustained.
