Southern California has Deadliest Roads in America

Based on the number of fatalities in the last five years, some of the most dangerous highways in America are in San Diego County, Los Angeles County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County. In particular, the I-15 in San Bernardino County is at the top of the list. Although that road is straight, many drivers fall asleep when driving, resulting in deadly consequences. There are also a significant number of drunk drivers as people travel on that road leaving Las Vegas.

The I-10 in Riverside County is another spot where a disproportionate number of fatal car accidents occur. Again, the road itself does not appear to be flawed, but there is a lot of bad driving that occurs there, such as speeding which often results in fatal car accidents.  Similarly, near the top of this list is the I-5 in Los Angeles County, and the I-5 in San Diego County.

In fatal car accident cases where there are not many witnesses, often the facts of the incident are limited. Only after a thorough investigation conducted by accident reconstruction experts and other investigators can the decedent’s perspective be told. Oftentimes, such investigations take a long time to complete and are expensive. The attorneys at Berman & Riedel, LLP, however, understand the critical importance of conducting a prompt and thorough investigation to determine the facts surrounding the cause of a fatal auto accident, and routinely arrange for such investigations for their clients.

Conducting an early and thorough investigation can provide important evidence which can help shape an entire legal case. By retaining an experienced attorney to help direct this investigation the likely outcome of successful litigation is greatly increased. Attorney William Berman in particular has experience litigating complex fatal car accident cases. He can help build successful wrongful death cases for the families of those killed in an auto accident, and is always available for a confidential and free consultation to discuss potential cases.
