According to the California Highway Patrol, 513 people were injured in Newport Beach car accidents in 2007. The majority of all car accidents in Newport Beach are caused by drunk drivers, officials have said.

"Victims of drunk drivers have suffered tragically in Newport Beach car accidents," noted John Bisnar, a top Newport Beach personal injury attorney. "In a city of high-end sports cars, many drivers like to 'roll the dice' and drive while drunk. In mid 2000, Newport Beach was ranked highest in its state population category of 50,000-100,000 people for DUI collisions. In 2006, almost a third of all those arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol were Newport Beach residents."

In April 2009, a surfer suffered traumatic injuries at Crystal Cove State Park while in July 2009, a body surfer was killed after being pummeled by 20-foot-waves at the Wedge. In March 2008 meantime, a 17-year old boy drowned in rough waters, after which his family claimed that the city had failed to provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions.

In fact, the OC Register reported that 14 people have died at the beach in Newport in the past ten years. Countless others have been injured, suffering everything from brain damage to spinal injuries. Lifeguards are called to assist in over 6,000 cases every year at the city's beaches, said Jim Turner, Newport's lifeguard battalion chief.

Dog Attacks in Newport Beach

Newport Beach's streets and beaches are not the only places where one must be on-guard against accidents. A less common, but certainly no less dangerous type of personal injury are dog attacks.

In May 2009, a two-year-old boy was attacked by a German Shepherd. The dog had been left unattended by its owner and the toddler attempted to pet the animal. The boy suffered serious facial injuries as a result of the dog attack, which required many stitches to close.

Newport City Measures Help Cut Down On Personal Injuries

Statistics show that sadly, many children have been mauled and even killed by dogs improperly leashed, abused and/or trained to attack. From 1979 to 1996, there were 154 fatal dog attacks reported in Newport Beach. More than half of all fatal attacks in the city involved Pit Bulls.

Newport Beach officials have taken note of the many accidents that can and have happened in the city and have taken the necessary measures to minimize personal injuries to its residents.
