Palmdale Car Accident Statistics
Situated at the northern edge of Los Angeles County, the city of Palmdale welcomes travelers driving up Highway 14 to the Antelope Valley.
Palmdale is a fast-growing city. With a population just shy of 160,000 people, many families have moved to Palmdale for its clean desert air, inexpensive housing prices, and wide open spaces.
While Palmdale’s openness may be one of its most attractive features, reckless drivers may decide to use the city’s open roads as race tracks, with deadly consequences.
The LA County Sherriff’s Department reported 102 deaths from car accidents in the Antelope Valley alone in 2020. Most of these tragedies happened during the daytime in clear weather conditions, often due to speeding.
A disproportionate number of car accidents took place on east-west arterial roads, such as Rancho Vista Blvd. and Palmdale Blvd., and on State Route 14.

- Last year, PARRIS secured a $120 million jury verdict for the victim of a T-bone style rollover car accident. Our client was severely injured when a distracted driver, on the phone with her boyfriend, ran a stop sign and caused a collision with our client. Despite his life-altering injuries, the at-fault driver’s insurer refuses to cooperate with our efforts to restore his life. After valiantly fighting on his behalf, our team secured a $120 million verdict to cover the costs of his ongoing medical care, property damage, extreme pain and suffering, and more.
- In another case, two brothers were driving up to Mammoth on an annual vacation when a big rig crossed into their lane, hitting them head-on. The at-fault truck driver had a history of accidents and irresponsible driving (including a DUI). Yet, his employers allowed him to continue working as a truck driver, endangering everyone on the road. After relentlessly fighting for the brothers, the PARRIS team secured a $56.5 million jury verdict on their behalf.
- One PARRIS client was riding his motorcycle along Highway 138 when a driver cut him off while making a left turn, causing a horrific accident. Our client suffered a catastrophic brain injury, became ventilator-dependent, and lost most of his speaking ability. Despite the abnormal frequency of accidents at this particular skewed intersection on Highway 138, Caltrans neglected to make any modifications at this intersection to prevent these tragedies. After a contentious legal battle against Caltrans, PARRIS won $31.5 million for our client.
- Another PARRIS client suffered life-changing injuries when his vehicle was T-boned in Palmdale during the holiday shopping season. When his case made it all the way to trial at the LA County Superior Court, PARRIS secured a $41.6 million verdict on his behalf.
