LOS ANGELES, California (December 5, 2016) — The number of deaths on roads and freeways in Los Angeles County has risen 17 percent, but armed with a $1.9 million grant police are hoping to reduce traffic fatalities next year, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Indeed, there were 3,176 lives lost in California in 2015, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The grant awarded to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department  will provide funding for a one-year program aimed at prevention of traffic-related injuries and fatalities. The funds are provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

“The sheriff’s department will use the funding as part of the county’s
ongoing commitment to keep our roadways safe and improve the quality of life
through both enforcement and education,” a sheriff’s statement said.

The growth in fatalities comes just six years after the death rate hit a 10-year low in 2010. Six years later there has been a huge spike in the number of pedestrian and bicycle deaths due to traffic accidents.

Police blame the wide use of distracting technologies and more drugged driving cases. Other factors contributing to the rise in fatal crashes is drunk driving, speeding and crashes at intersections. In fact, roughly 32 percent of all drivers who died in California collisions were impaired by alcohol and or illegal drugs in 2013, the Office of Traffic Safety reports.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use.
