Ventura Injury Lawyer
The city of Ventura is located in Ventura County. In 2011, there were 387 vehicle accidents in Ventura and of those, alcohol was involved in 54 of them. Bicycle accidents accounted for 52 of these accidents and with bicyclists less than 15 years of age, there were 9 bike-related accidents in the city of Ventura in 2011. Motorcycle accidents comprised a total of 11 accidents that year.
A study was done by the Ventura County Star looking at vehicle accidents from 1994 to 2008. The study showed that 30% of fatal accidents involved drunk drivers and 32% involved vehicles travelling at unsafe speeds. Sadly, 43% of those killed in Ventura county accidents did not have their seatbelts fastened. While this figure is very high, it fortunately is less than the national average of 60% and lower than California’s average of 48%. If your accident occurred on the 101 Freeway in Ventura county, this is not surprising, as Highway 101 ranked the highest in vehicle accidents resulting in fatalities. The highway with the second most fatalities was Highway 126, as it had 105 deaths over the 15 year study. Highway 118 was third on the list with 97 fatalities related to car accidents during the same period.
