MORE L.A. CAR, TRUCK, MOTORCYCLE, BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS RESULTING IN WRONGFUL DEATH AND SERIOUS INJURY CLAIMS
Despite Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s goal of eliminating all traffic deaths by the year 2025, unfortunately traffic deaths and injuries have actually increased.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) just released data that up to December 25, 2021, 289 persons were killed in traffic collisions from January 1, 2021 to December 25, 2021. That is an increase of 21% more deaths than the year before (2020) and an increase of 19% more than the year before that (2019).

[As an aside, one does wonder why the LAPD was unable over a week into 2022 to provide date until the end of December 31, 2021? Perhaps the reason is the prior years’ statistics cover this same unusual ending date and its best to compare exact time periods?]
