Although it only takes a split second for a car accident to occur, the incidents can cause injuries that have the potential to affect a person for a lifetime. There are many different types of injuries that can be sustained from a car accident, but there are some that are more common than others.
Our readers in Los Angeles are no strangers to reports about car accidents in the metropolitan area. However, as common as car accidents might be, fatal car accidents are a whole other matter altogether. When a person dies in a car accident, the trauma that can be felt can be wide-ranging. In a recent fatal accident, there are a variety of factors involved that may result in re-traumatization for several people.
A previous post on this blog talked about how California experienced a rash of fatal motor vehicle accidents over the recent Memorial Day holiday.
Most people across America, including in California, probably spent the recent Memorial Day holiday weekend with family and friends, maybe at parties and cookouts, celebrating a long weekend off of work and being grateful for the sacrifices of others.
The difference in the size of vehicles involved in a car accident is oftentimes a determining factor as to which individuals in which vehicles suffer injuries. A larger vehicle will usually provide more protection than a smaller vehicle.
Relatively speaking, police chases aren't that uncommon in the Southern California area, which is one of the most populous places in the country. But, when such a police chase ends in a collision that leads to significant property damage and injuries, that is another matter altogether.
As one of the largest cities in America, Los Angeles has just as much of a problem when it comes to drunk drivers on the roads as the rest of the country.
Most people in the Los Angeles area have probably seen vehicles on the side of the road in the immediate aftermath of a car accident. Typically, these accidents can delay our commutes and make us wonder how the accident occurred and who was at fault. Unfortunately, for those who are involved in such serious car accidents, traffic delays are usually the least of their concerns.
Many of our Los Angeles readers have probably heard the reports about a horrific incident that occurred recently in nearby Fullerton, in which a man driving a pickup truck jumped a curb in the vehicle and slammed into several pedestrians who were in a crowd along the street. The incident occurred on the evening of February 9.
Every day millions of people in Southern California leave their homes to commute to work or school, and none of them expects to be involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, car accidents occur every day and the sad reality is that some of them involve injuries, which can sometimes be quite serious. Such an incident can be a serious shock to the individual who is injured and their family members, as they attempt to understand the path forward after the car accident.
