Fatal Car Accidents in California
Vehicle crashes took the lives of more than 3800 people in 2021. Unfortunately, we continue to see a significant number of people die as a result of fatal crashes here in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the leading cause of fatal crashes is driver error. A significant number of people lose their lives as a result of drivers who engage in reckless actions, such as driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while distracted, or speeding. These and other acts of negligence continue to take lives day after day here in Southern California.
Unfortunately, families are often forced to deal with overwhelming consequences after losing loved ones. A fatal crash can be tens of thousands of dollars in funeral costs, vehicle repair expenses, and various other damages for your family.
If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim for compensation to cover these and other losses that you face. To succeed in a wrongful death claim, you will need to prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident and that their negligence resulted in your loved one's death. An experienced legal team can help you gather evidence and build a strong case.
Making the decision to hire a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer is never an easy one, but it can be beneficial in recovering full compensation for your loss.
