The city of Anaheim is known throughout the world as home to the original Disneyland, but those who live or visit here soon find out there’s a lot of other amazing attractions piled into this 51-square-mile city.
In fact, besides the Disneyland Resort and California Adventure, this world-class destination is also home to popular sports venues and music arenas such as the Angel Stadium and Honda Center as well as the West Coast’s largest convention center, the Anaheim Convention Center.
It’s also become the county’s largest city with a population close to 350,000 people crammed into that 51 square miles – that’s 7,013 people per square mile. So it’s no wonder that Anaheim is ranked as California’s 10th largest city and the 54th most-populated city in the United States.
But with these busy attractions and venues, and all this popularity, also comes some of the worst traffic and accidents in Southern California.
Indeed, city’s growing popularity and population continues to feed into a perfect storm for traffic congestion and accidents. Just the visitors to Disneyland and California Adventure alone bring in some 22 million people to the city annually.
According to the latest 2012 California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Report, there were 16 people including 7 pedestrians killed and 2,267 injured in traffic accidents in the city of Anaheim. The city ranks second in Orange County for the number of fatal accidents, but first in terms of injuries among all OC cities. The city of Santa Ana ranked first with 22 deaths and second with 1,657 injuries. Overall, there were 148 people killed and 14,029 injured throughout Orange County in 2012.
Most of these accidents took place on one of the four major freeways that feed into the city. The main grid of freeways that serve Anaheim are the Interstate 5 Santa Ana Freeway, the Riverside 91 Freeway, the State Route 57 Orange Freeway and the Garden Grove 22 Freeway.
So these motorists who travel to Anaheim, or through this city, have to navigate some of the most congested freeways in Southern California. So what happens if you are hurt in a traffic accident here or you are injured in an amusement park or hurt at any of these premises? Whether you are a local California resident or someone visiting from another state or country, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you obtain necessary medical care and compensation for your injuries and losses.
