Hollywood Car Accident Lawyer
On any given day, Tinseltown’s streets are full of a wide variety of motor vehicles. Individuals who reside or work in the area and who are going to and from work or running errands must share roadways and highways with commercial vehicles transporting goods throughout the area as well as motor coaches and other vehicles carrying tourists around to see Hollywood’s many tourist attractions. With so many vehicles sharing roads and highways, is it any wonder that car crashes happen in and around Hollywood with regularity?
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s website, in 2014 (the most recent year for which figures are available), in the Los Angeles metropolitan area:
- Over 37,000 collisions occurred that resulted in at least one injury and/or fatality. (This number means that in the greater Los Angeles area, approximately 3,000 injury and/or fatality accidents happened every month – or about 100 per day);
- Approximately 6,700 collisions in 2014 occurred because (in part) of speed);
- Another 3,894 collisions were classified as “hit and run,” meaning that the at-fault vehicle left the scene of the accident without waiting for law enforcement and/or speaking with other drivers involved in the crash.
What these statistics do not (indeed, cannot) describe is the financial and emotional impact that a car wreck can cause for you and your family members. Even individuals who are not directly harmed in a car wreck may experience the effects of the crash as their loved ones’ lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering can affect the injured victims’ families.
