Car accidents are one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017. Speeding on the road is probably one of the most dangerous and reckless things drivers can do, especially if they’re not a professional racecar driver. They could potentially injure others, and it can also lead to fatal consequences.

When facing cases like this, it’s essential to have an experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorney specializing in car accidents to conduct an independent investigation. Attorneys can utilize their resources to review the factors that may have affected the crash carefully. They can hire expert witnesses, conduct background checks on the drivers involved, and review applicable insurance coverage for their client.
