Need an Attorney After a Car Accident in Reseda?

Posted By Law Offices of Joel Parker || 1-May-2013

The Stakes Are High

The California roads and highways have been recognized as some of the most dangerous for drivers. In 2009 alone, there were 3,071 car accident fatalities out of the 2,816 fatal car accidents. When looking at nationwide statistics, an average of 37,000 people die in auto collisions each year and another 2.3 million people are severely injured or paralyzed. With high numbers such as these, car accidents have come to be the number one leading cause of accidental death for people age 34 and under. The majority of car accidents have happened in urban areas or larger cities where pedestrian accidents are more prone to occur. Reseda, CA is one of those cities.

Many of These Deaths Could Have Been Prevented

The sad truth is that many of these injuries and fatalities could have been prevented. At least 856 accidents in 2009 happened in California as a result of a drunk driver. Another major concern today with our recent advancements in technology, is the high number of distracted drivers out on the road. Texting and driving as well as drinking and driving are very dangerous and careless acts as they put the life of the driver and the safety of other nearby drivers at risk. Speeding is another considerable cause for many car accidents. In fact, 31% of all fatal car accidents were caused by speeding and ended up taking the lives of 10,591 people nationwide. Not only do car accidents take innocent lives and injure innocent drivers, but they cause severe financial hardship for all the parties involved. In 2005, the costs of car accidents across the U.S. amounted to more than $230 billion.
