A man was killed in a Los Angeles car accident on the 405 Freeway early morning on January 5, 2011. According to a City News Service report, the fatal car accident occurred on the connector to the southbound 110 Freeway in Carson. The report does not specify if the fatally injured victim was a pedestrian or in a vehicle during the accident. The fatal car accident remains under investigation.
My deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the man killed in this tragic car accident. My thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
Car Accident Statistics
According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 10 people were killed and 447 were injured in Carson car accidents. In Los Angeles County as a whole, there were 667 fatalities and 52,229 injuries reported as a result of car accidents during the same year.
What Caused This Fatal Accident?
This early report did not specify how the accident took place or if anyone will be cited or arrested in connection with the car accident. There are more questions than answers in this case. Did alcohol play a factor in the car accident? Was there another driver involved? Was the at-fault driver exceeding the speed limit or driving distracted? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine how or why this fatal car accident occurred.
In cases where negligence or wrongdoing is involved, the family of a deceased car accident victim can file what is known as a wrongful death claim, seeking compensation for medical and funeral expenses, lost future income, loss of love and companionship, and other related damages. Families of victims would be well-advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, who will stay abreast of the official investigation and make sure that their legal rights and best interests are protected.
