It is an unfortunate fact of life that accidents on the road are one of the most likely causes of death in a California resident’s first half of life. In San Diego, particularly, cars are more lethal to the average resident than guns.
As San Diego’s violent crime rates have seen significant decreases over the past four decades, it is now true that more San Diego residents have passed away from car crashes than gun violence. 260 traffic deaths occurred from 2012 to 2016, compared to 206 murders over the same period of time.
Thousands of accidents have also resulted in serious injuries that may require of lifetime of treatment and medical care. Since it is a known fact that the vast majority of motor vehicle crashes are at least partially caused by human error — about 90%, in fact — San Diego accident victims need a personal injury lawyer who will pursue the compensation accident victims deserve.
This assertion holds true whether a loved one passed away due to another’s legal wrongdoing or you are the injured victim who is in need of extensive medical treatment and care.
San Diego Accident Facts
In 2015, San Diego suffered from well over 9,000 accidents that resulted in victim deaths or injuries. More than 1,000 of those accidents involved alcohol, and more than 2,000 were speeding-related.
While the primary victims of San Diego accidents were in cars, other accidents are still quite common. More than 600 injured or deceased victims were on motorcycles, and more than 1,200 other victims were either pedestrians or bicyclists. These and similar findings come from the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most recent year of available traffic accident data.
Many victims were harmed in trucking accidents as well, which often lead to the most devastating injuries. The Ledger Law Firm represents San Diego accident victims regardless of the type of collision.
