Most Dangerous Roadways in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is one of the most congested cities in the world. As such, 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, there are certain stretches of roadways that 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 to Do After a Car Accident

While you may be feeling dazed and shaken up after a car accident, it is important to keep calm and be aware of your actions. What you say and do can have a considerable impact on your ability to recover compensation.

After a car accident, be sure to do the following:

  • Always stop and render aid - never flee the scene!
  • If anyone needs immediate medical attention, call 911.
  • Call the police and report the crash immediately. The responding officer will create a police report of the crash detailing any damage, injuries, and other details that may be important to your case. Tell the officer that arrives your version of the crash.
  • Do not admit fault or apologize to the other drivers. While it may seem innocent, doing so can potentially cause you to be held liable for the crash before an investigation is even completed.
  • Obtain the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and driver's license numbers of all involved drivers.
  • Exchange insurance policy numbers, license plate numbers, VIN numbers, and vehicle registration information with all involved drivers
  • Obtain the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any involved passengers and witnesses.
  • Take detailed photographs of all vehicle damage, injuries, road conditions, traffic lights, and any other details of the scene.
  • Immediately notify your insurance company of the crash and avoid making any statements.
  • Seek medical attention immediately after the crash, even if you initially feel fine. You may be hurt and not know it due to the adrenaline rush from the crash.

Pure comparative Negligence in California

Car accident claims in California are based on the concept of "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. With that being said, your maximum eligible compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

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 important to retain powerful legal counsel to ensure you are treated fairly and maximize your chances of securing the compensation you deserve.

After you have been involved in an accident, you may be concerned about filing a report with your insurance policy. The other driver's insurance provider may even contact you and try to get you to take a settlement.
