Making Sense of California Traffic Accident Statistics for 2009

Making Sense of California Traffic Accident Statistics for 2009
No one can predict when a car accident will occur. When it does and you suffer bodily injuries, you should speak with a California car accident lawyer, who can help you file and pursue a personal injury claim in Los Angeles. In addition, a lawyer understands some of the biggest risks on California’s roadways and how they play in to your claim.

Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for 2009 shed a bit more light on the risks California motorists face each day. The state’s rural roadways that weave through valleys and foothills accounted for the most fatalities, at 419. Traffic accidents in Los Angeles urban areas claimed 334 lives, and it is unknown in which areas 4 fatalities occurred.

In 2009, California fatalities were caused by a number of traffic accidents, including: 

  • alcohol-related accidents – 243 fatalities;
  • rollover accidents – 232 fatalities;
  • intersection-related accidents – 150 fatalities;
  • speeding-related accidents – 147 fatalities;
  • motorcycle accidents – 77 fatalities; and
  • pedestrian accidents – 73 fatalities.

Interestingly enough, Los Angeles County was actually not the top county for traffic accident fatalities in 2009.

The top 10 counties in California for traffic accident fatalities included: 

  • Los Angeles;;
  • San Diego;
  • Orange;;
  • Chesterfield;
  • Norfolk;
  • Chesapeake;
  • Fauquier;
  • Prince William;
  • Richmond; and
  • Pittsylvania.

When someone else’s negligence in a car accident causes you to suffer injuries, you may be able to file a personal injury claim in Los Angeles. Consulting with a California car accident lawyer should be your next step.
