Encouraging Car Accident Statistics
La Mirada is a surprisingly safe place when it comes to car accidents and alcohol-related driving incidents. Throughout California, there is an average of 1 fatality in every 193 car accidents. In La Mirada, however, there is one death in every 584 car accidents, meaning that La Mirada residents are 3 times less likely to be killed in a car accident. This statistic continues for DUIs. 11% of all accidents in California are due to driving under the influence. This statistic is 7% in La Mirada, resulting in far fewer DUI deaths.
One interesting piece of information to note is that truck accidents make up 8% of all car accidents in La Mirada. This is most likely due to the fact that La Mirada lies directly off of Highway 5 – a road used frequently by truckers travelling up and down California. According to the National Bridge Inventory, an average of 34,000 trucks pass through La Mirada every day, increasing the danger of truck accidents. Fortunately, less than half a percent of truck accidents actually result in a fatality.
Car Accident Injuries Still Happen in La Mirada
Despite the safer environment in La Mirada compared to the rest of California, there were still over 1,300 injuries from accidents in the last 5 years. This leads to a lot of people trying to recover compensation for medical bills and property damage, which can be difficult when dealing with an insurance company for the first time. Often, insurance adjusters will have a friendly, helpful demeanor, while also trying to compensate you the least amount possible for your losses. Adjusters are naturally trained to increase their company profits, leading to some adjusters trying to extract information from you that may be harmful to your claim. For this reason, it’s important to hire an attorney to help you negotiate with these adjusters. La Mirada Personal Injury Attorneys like Bisnar Chase are experienced in dealing with adjusters for car accidents and know the tricks they use to get away with paying out a lower claim. Our job is to comb through all of the facts of the accident to make sure that we’re getting you the highest settlement possible. For example, take a look at a case of one of our clients, Rickey Prock. Prock was catastrophically injured in a motorcycle accident and was offered $15,000 by a lawyer who didn’t fully examine the situation. When Prock went to Bisnar Chase, we did some research and determined that the driver who hit Prock was on the clock working for a corporation at the time, so corporation was responsible to pay for the damages of the driver. We ended up getting Rickey Prock 3 million dollars to take care of the surgeries and physical therapy required to heal him. Learn more about other case results from Bisnar Chase!
