The Most Dangerous Roadways in Los Angeles
Los Angeles is one of the most congested cities in the world. L.A.'s roadways are notoriously dangerous and are the site of more than 3,000 traffic fatalities each year. While drivers should be vigilant and drive defensively at all times, specific stretches of roadways require extra care due to their higher density of accident fatalities than others.
According to data from 2015 and 2016, the most dangerous roadways in the Los Angeles area based on fatal crashes per mile are:
- Sierra Highway: Located in Canyon Country in the Santa Clarita Valley, this 3.51-mile stretch of road accounted for 10 fatal crashes at a rate of 2.85 fatalities per mile.
- I-405: Also known as the San Diego Freeway, this 5.76-mile section of this major freeway connecting Sherman Oaks to Van Nuys was the site of 6 fatal crashes at a rate of 1.04 fatalities per mile.
- I-5: Arguably Southern California's most congested freeway, The Golden State Freeway was the site of 28 fatal crashes on the 28-mile stretch from Bell Gardens to Sylmar. This is roughly 1 fatality per mile.
- Route 57: The 9.85-mile stretch of Route 57 running through Los Angeles County was the site of 9 fatal crashes at a rate of 0.913 per mile.
- State Route 118: Also known as the Ronald Reagan Freeway, this stretch of highway was the location of 9 fatal crashes at a rate of 0.88 fatalities per mile.
What is Comparative Negligence under California Law?
Car accident claims in California are based on "pure comparative negligence." Under this law, you may recover compensation from any other at-fault party regardless of how much your actions contributed to the collision. That said, your percentage of fault will reduce your maximum eligible compensation.
For example, say you were injured in a sideswipe crash and suffered $100,000 worth of damages, including medical expenses, vehicle repairs, and lost income. At trial, a jury determines that you are 15% at fault for the crash because you were speeding at the time of the collision. Because of this, you will only be able to recover a maximum of $85,000 (or $100,000 less 15%). Insurance adjusters are well aware of these comparative fault rules and will likely use this knowledge while assessing the value of your claim. For this reason, it is essential to retain powerful legal counsel from a competent Los Angeles car accident attorney to ensure you are treated fairly and maximize your chances of securing the compensation you deserve.
