Car Accident Statistics in Los Angeles County
Los Angeles County saw 745 car accident-related fatalities and more than 85,000 injuries in 2005, the most recent year for which statistics were available.

Losing a loved one in a car accident can have lifelong consequences for survivors. The loss of companionship and partnership can be emotionally devastating, and children in particular may suffer a loss of financial stability if one or both parents are lost. While the loss cannot be eased through financial means, compensation can help build a stronger foundation for your or your family’s future.
Thousands of others have suffered severe injuries that interfere with their daily functioning. This can lead to financial suffering as well. Compensation can provide funds to pay for expenses that are directly related to the car accident, such as hospitalization costs and doctor bills. However, it can also help you move forward after the accident. If you are facing lost wages, decreased ability to work or other potential long-term effects from the injuries you suffered in the accident, you may be able to recoup damages for that as well.
