How Our Los Angeles Accident Lawyers Prove Negligence In Your Accident Claims

To win compensation after an accident in Los Angeles, you need to prove someone was careless and that it led to your injuries. This legal concept is called “negligence” and is under California Civil Code Section 1714. Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Did they owe you a duty of care? Usually, this means drivers operating their vehicles safely, property owners keeping their premises safe, etc.
  • Did they mess up? Did this person fail to act responsibly? Examples include a driver running a red light or a store ignoring a spill.
  • Did this cause the accident? There needs to be a direct link between their careless action (or lack of action) and your injuries.
  • Were you harmed? You must have actual damages. These can be medical bills, lost income, physical pain, etc.
Proving negligence often requires an in-depth investigation. Our accident lawyers in Los Angeles will gather evidence, build your case, and fight to show the other party was responsible for your losses.

What Are The Personal Injury Cases Arash Law Handle?

Los Angeles is filled with busy streets and different modes of transportation. Many types of accidents that happen within the area are usually caused by drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. This resulted in about 11,202 total injuries and fatalities for the city of Los Angeles and 59,603 for the whole of Los Angeles County in 2021. Below are some of the most frequent cases we handle:

Car Accidents

These can range from minor fender-benders on surface streets to high-speed freeway collisions. In 2021, the city of Los Angeles accounted for 1,558 speed-related fatal and injury crashes. As for accidents involving drunk driving, 2,033 victims were either killed or injured.

Car accidents claim lives every day all over California, especially in Los Angeles, where so many residents and tourists use different kinds of transportation. When an accident strikes, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Los Angeles car accident lawyers. We’ll make sure to serve justice in the face of reckless and unruly drivers on California streets.

Truck Accidents

Accidents involving semi-trucks and other big rigs often result in catastrophic injuries. Because of their size and weight, even low-speed collisions can be devastating. This is why you’ll need a trusted truck accident lawyer in Los Angeles if you’ve been injured in one such accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 5,800 people were killed in traffic crashes involving large trucks in 2021. About 72% of them were passengers or drivers of other smaller vehicles.

Factoring in reckless driving practices like speeding and DUI, the results of truck accidents are nothing short of a disaster. Unfortunately, repeat offenders aren’t unusual, as 20.8% of these truck drivers have previously recorded crashes.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists lack the physical protection of a car. Lane-splitting, while legal in Los Angeles, increases the risks of accidents caused by drivers not checking blind spots and failing to yield. It’s always easier for defendants to blame the vehicle with a statistically higher chance of causing accidents. Hence, employing the help of a resilient Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyer who is ready to face these challenges with you will be able to ease your burden as a victim.

In 2021, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) recorded a total of 2,812 injuries and fatalities involved in motorcycle crashes in Los Angeles County. Although the “City of Angels” has seen a downward trend of fatalities and injuries since 2020, the Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS) still recorded 924 injuries and fatalities, with about 1,052 on average per year.

Pedestrian Accidents

Walkability in Los Angeles is great. But, it also means pedestrians share the roads with vehicles. Distracted drivers may fail to yield in crosswalks and can put pedestrians in grave danger. According to the TIMS, there were about 1,454 pedestrian fatalities and injuries recorded in 2022. This is more than a thousand less than 2020’s 2,519. However, its average still stands high at 1,854.7.

Although most pedestrian accidents involve cars, cases such as pedestrians versus bicyclists or pedestrians versus pedestrians are also widespread. Usually, no matter the size of the vehicle, your injuries may range from bruises and road rashes up to amputations or even death. Cars, trucks, and other vehicles driven by reckless drivers are a threat to safety. With a knowledgeable Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer by your side, rest assured that you are always a step ahead of defendants and insurance companies to get the best possible compensation available to you.

Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists, like pedestrians, are vulnerable to road users. Bicycle accidents happen when cars turn in front of cyclists, don’t leave enough space when passing, or “door” cyclists by opening doors into bike lanes. Similar to Los Angeles’s downward trend in pedestrian accident injuries and fatalities, bike accidents are also on a downward trend. Regardless, if an unfortunate accident happens, you can trust one of our Los Angeles bicycle accident lawyers to handle your case seamlessly and with compassion.

From 1,333 in 2020, all bicyclist fatalities and injuries were reduced to approximately 461 in 2022. Young cyclists and kids were involved in some of these accidents. As adults, it’s important that we teach our youth about bike safety to prevent the inflation of these cases.

Rideshare Accidents

Uber and Lyft are part of LA life. Ridesharing accidents usually involve multiple parties and can get complicated. Further, app activity is also a factor in determining your coverage value. Since 2009, Uber has become a worldwide phenomenon. The same goes for accident cases involving them. This is why our Uber accident lawyers in Los Angeles are always ready to stand against this huge company and their reckless drivers to make them pay for the compensation you deserve. This goes out to Lyft too. If you’ve been injured in an accident because of a reckless Lyft driver, we have powerful Lyft accident lawyers in Los Angeles ready to take your case to court if they have to.

As rideshare services become a staple for commuting in Los Angeles, accidents involving these services are becoming more and more prominent. In 2021, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) witnessed more than 10,000 combined rideshare incidents from Uber and Lyft.

Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), like Uber and Lyft, are required to submit an annual report. Aside from their accident and incident reports, some of the recorded data on the TNC Data Portal include assault and harassment, suspended drivers, and total violations. These incidents, although not directly related to car accidents, may also contribute to the number of personal injury cases present in Los Angeles.

Public Transportation Accidents

Injuries in bus and train accidents can lead to large-scale claims. These may involve the city or private companies that govern them. The increase in residents and tourists using public transportation in Los Angeles through the years has contributed to a steady increase in accidents, fatalities, and injuries using such services. Our bus accident lawyers in Los Angeles have more work now than ever, as we keep encountering such cases. We care about every Angelenos and even tourists going about their day wanting to come home safely to their family and friends.
So if you get injured, we will not hesitate to thoroughly investigate and handle your case with utmost regard for your needs.

In 2023, the CPUC reported almost double the number of rail transit incidents at 80 compared to 2014’s approximately 50 recorded incidents. For buses, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported approximately 30,000 accidents involving buses all over California, including Los Angeles. Among these accidents, 155 were considered fatal crashes, while about 7,000 crashes resulted in injuries.

Other Types of Accidents That Lead to Personal Injury Claims

An auto accident is not the only way a person can be injured. There are many other types of accidents, and when they are caused by another person’s negligence, these victims also have the right to be compensated for their injuries and losses.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Many hazards can occur on a person’s property. The law requires property owners to take reasonable steps to make their land safe. Commercial property owners (such as businesses that own stores and restaurants) are held to a higher standard of care than private homeowners. Commercial owners are inviting the public onto their land for the specific purpose of making money. Residential homeowners have fewer responsibilities, but they still cannot allow dangerous conditions to remain on their property without warning guests of the danger.

The law requires property owners to take reasonable steps to make their land and properties safe. They should always keep their properties up to the standards of local safety codes and state laws to avoid dangerous premises accidents like slips and falls.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Nursing homes have a contractual obligation to care for residents. However, some workers may sometimes abuse their power or approach their jobs with neglect, leading to elderly abuse and accidents. This can lead to situations like poor hygiene, emotional distress, and physical mistreatment that our elderly don’t deserve to experience.

Businesses that allow their employees to abuse or neglect residents are liable for all the victims’ injuries and losses. It is especially important to hold nursing homes accountable for abuse and neglect because other innocent residents could also become abuse and neglect victims. By keeping nursing homes responsible for this behavior, future victims are protected from abuse and neglect.

Construction Accidents

Construction accidents often involve heavy machinery, dangerous equipment, or falls from tall buildings. For these reasons, construction accident injuries tend to be so severe. Many construction accidents result in permanent disabilities. Permanent disabilities can leave the victim unable ever to work again, or in need of full-time care. These costs add up quickly. Over a lifetime, they can run into the millions of dollars. Because of this, it is crucial for construction accident victims to consult with a personal injury lawyer about their legal right to compensation.

Other Workplace Accidents

Injuries can also occur in any other workplace. While construction sites tend to have a more significant share of workplace accidents, any other worker in any different location can also be injured on the job. Even if your job is relatively safe, you could be involved in a car accident while running a work errand. Such an injury – like any other workplace injury – can entitle you to worker’s compensation coverage or a personal injury claim. It is vital to hire a Los Angeles accident lawyer who understands these claims, and when they can – and cannot – be filed together.

Defective Products

Any company that manufactures consumer goods for sale in the United States is subject to strict products liability. A consumer who is injured while using the product as intended does not have to prove that the manufacturer was negligent. So long as the injuries were the result of a foreseeable use of the product, the victim can be eligible for compensation.

Injuries can arise from the ingestion or use of defective products. Sellers and manufacturers can be held liable for these dangerous products. Our Los Angeles accident lawyers are ready to stand up to big retailers like Walmart, Target, Costco, Ross, and more.

Injuries Frequently Sustained In Los Angeles Accidents

Accidents usually cause a wide range of injuries, some of which are more serious than others. Here are the injuries that often lead to significant compensation claims:

1
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

A mild concussion can already be a TBI. This injury occurs when the head is forcefully shaken. A brain injury can lead to headaches, confusion, and even long-term psychological changes.

2
Spinal Cord Injuries

Damage to the spinal cord can have devastating consequences. These injuries often lead to paralysis and can change your life in an instant.

3
Soft Tissue Injuries

Injuries to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are referred to as soft tissue injuries. Insurance companies like to downplay these injuries because they do not involve vital organs and are usually not life-threatening. But these injuries can be incredibly painful. They might require months of physical therapy or chiropractic services. Do not let a claims adjuster tell you that soft tissue injuries aren’t worth very much. Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers fight hard to get fair compensation for the pain and suffering associated with soft tissue injuries.

4
Dislocated Joints

These injuries are extremely painful, limiting mobility. They can prevent you from going to work and performing vital tasks, resulting in lost wages.

5
Internal Injuries

These injuries cannot be seen or accurately diagnosed without the aid of qualified medical personnel and diagnostic equipment. The nature of these types of wounds is why it is so important to see a doctor as soon as possible after being involved in a high-impact accident.

6
Broken Bones

These injuries can range from simple fractures to ones needing surgery. The severity of the fracture depends on the location and nature of the fracture. Some additional costs may include rehabilitation.

7
Facial Injuries

These injuries can affect your appearance and your ability to eat, speak, and function normally. They can leave lasting scars and may need surgeries.

8
Whiplash

Insurance companies can downplay a whiplash. But this can cause lasting discomfort, limiting your ability to do work.

9
Cuts Or Lacerations

Serious wounds need immediate medical attention, especially when there’s excessive bleeding. Deep lacerations can sever tendons or nerves, causing permanent scars and impaired movement.

10
Muscle Strains Or Sprains

Strains and sprains can cause significant pain and ongoing discomfort. You’re likely to spend time and money on physical therapy to get better.

These injuries are significant life disruptions that entitle you to compensation for pain and suffering. Beyond physical injuries, victims also suffer emotional distress, including anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and difficulty sleeping.

During an accident claim, insurance companies may try to downplay your injuries to pay you as little as possible. However, our Los Angeles accident lawyers know better than to settle for less. You deserve to be compensated for all the damages an accident has inflicted upon you.

Los Angeles Auto Accidents

As Los Angeles accident lawyers, we know the troubling facts about traffic accidents in the Los Angeles area. The website Curbed reports that traffic accidents are the fourth leading cause of premature deaths in Los Angeles County. They cause more deaths than homicides, strokes, or lung cancer.

Although Los Angeles has a lower rate of traffic fatalities per capita than other western cities (such as Phoenix or Albuquerque), these cities have not invested millions of dollars toward reducing road deaths. Los Angeles has joined Vision Zero, a worldwide campaign to help cities reduce traffic deaths. There were lofty goals for eliminating all traffic fatalities by 2025.

Not only has the project failed to meet its goals, but traffic fatalities have increased since the project started. This increase stands in stark contrast to cities like New York and San Francisco. Both towns saw reductions in traffic fatalities after implementing Vision Zero.

Even the coronavirus pandemic has not provided relief from the dangers of Los Angeles roadways. The Washington Post reports that miles driven on United States roadways dropped dramatically during quarantine orders. This decrease in overall driving should have resulted in an 18 percent decrease in road fatalities, had the number of deaths per mile driven remained the same. Instead, there was only an 8 percent decrease in road deaths.

This data shows that the number of fatal accidents per mile driven increased by 14 percent during the coronavirus pandemic. Like other cities across the nation, Los Angeles reported an increased number of crashes related to speeding. So what does this mean for Los Angeles road users? Whether you are a driver, passenger, motorcycle rider, bicyclist, scooter user, or pedestrian, it is best to be aware of the common types of traffic accidents in Los Angeles and their common causes. Doing this can help you look out for known dangers and stay safe while on the road.

Common Types Of Car-Related Accidents In Los Angeles

Because Los Angeles is notorious for its traffic situation, our accident attorneys have compiled a list of common types of car accidents that happen in the area. We’ve handled all of these cases for victims trying to seek compensation fairly, and we can do the same for you.

Here are some of the most common car accident cases our accident lawyers handle in Los Angeles.

It is essential to hire our accident attorneys in Los Angeles who has experience handling your particular type of case. We understand any of these accidents can inflict minor to severe injuries. So, we want to help guide you into seeking the compensation you’re entitled to.

Common Causes Of Car Accidents In Los Angeles

Los Angeles traffic can be nothing short of overwhelming for both residents and tourists. Thus, always be aware of drivers who use unsafe driving practices that could possibly lead to accidents.

Here are some of the most common causes of collisions on the roads of Los Angeles:

To get compensation for auto accident injuries, you must first prove who was at fault for causing the accident. The person or persons legally responsible (“liable”) for causing your injuries also have a legal obligation to compensate you for any costs associated with treating those injuries. Proving liability can be a complicated process. What if two cars turn into each other at the same time? What if a driver and bicyclist failed to see each other? Many complex situations can arise. Given the complicated nature of determining fault, it is vital to hire a car accident lawyer in Los Angeles who has experience proving liability in auto accident cases.

So how can road users reduce the risk of being involved in a traffic accident? For drivers, the most common causes can be easily addressed with changes to their common driving behaviors. Never drive while under the influence of alcohol, medications, recreational drugs, or any combination of these substances. Never allow yourself to become distracted by anything or anyone while driving. Such distractions can include electronic devices (such as smartphones, navigation programs, and in-vehicle entertainment systems), but they can also include passengers, children, and pets in the vehicle. Slow down in work zones, at night, during inclement weather, and any other time your visibility is reduced. Always be aware of your surroundings. Have an exit strategy, and be prepared to stop quickly in an emergency.

Other road users (including motorcycle riders, bicyclists, scooter riders, and pedestrians) are more vulnerable than vehicle occupants. These types of road users do not have the protection of a vehicle or its life-saving safety features. Because of this, these road users must be even more careful about avoiding collisions. Look carefully in every direction before entering the roadway. Make eye contact with drivers to be sure they see you. Be prepared to yield the right of way, even if it belongs to you, to a driver who does not see you. Wear light-colored clothing to be easily seen. Be particularly careful at night, in rain or fog, and any other time that visibility is reduced.

How Auto Insurance Claims Work In Los Angeles

Did a car accident get you injured in Los Angeles? Auto insurance claims don’t have to be tedious. Our accident lawyers can help you get started with your insurance claim immediately. Let’s break down the process.
An auto insurance claim starts by opening the claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company. This work is something your lawyer can do for you if you have not already done so. One of the first things the company will ask for is a recorded statement about what happened in the accident. You do not have to provide this. You should decline or refer the representative to your lawyer’s office.

The recorded statement helps the insurance company determine who was at fault for the accident. In some cases, such as rear-end collisions, it is relatively clear who caused the accident. In other cases, the physical evidence is not so clear-cut.

Liability can also be apportioned between two (or more) drivers. It can also be assigned to a pedestrian, bicyclist, or even a third party that was nowhere near the scene of the accident. This is what happens in defective vehicle cases. The manufacturer is liable for the accident, even though the company was not at the scene.

If there are questions over who was at fault, your lawyer may need to prepare evidence of liability. This process could include gathering testimony from expert witnesses, records of the traffic signal, or testimony from witnesses at the scene.

Once the insurance company accepts liability, the next step is to determine the fair value of your claim. This value will include straightforward expenses (such as medical bills and lost wages) as well as intangible losses (such as pain and suffering). Most auto insurance carriers will reduce the value of pain and suffering to get away with a lowball settlement offer. You do not have to accept this. Your lawyer can help prove the value of your losses to demand a fair settlement.If the insurance company denies liability or refuses to make a fair settlement offer, your lawyer may need to file a lawsuit on your behalf. This action allows you to present your case to a jury. The jury will decide who was at fault or what your claim is worth. In some cases, the jury must make both these determinations. Filing a lawsuit takes longer and costs more than a settlement. But if you do not receive a fair settlement offer, it can be the best option to enforce your legal rights.

If someone else’s negligence caused your accident in Los Angeles, you may be entitled to compensation for damages and losses. These usually fall into items including the following:

  • Medical Expenses – These can include hospital stays, doctor visits, and surgeries. When injuries take longer to heal, you can also be compensated for rehabilitation, physical therapy, and assistive devices like a wheelchair.
  • Lost Wages – Income lost while out of work and any reduced earning potential are valued and compensated. When you get permanently disabled, you can also get paid for a lifetime earning potential.
  • Pain And Suffering – All physical pain, emotional distress, and reduced quality of life caused by the accident and your injuries should be compensated by liable parties.
  • Property Damage – This includes the cost to repair or replace your vehicle, phone, or any personal belongings damaged in the accident.
  • Punitive Damages – In rare cases of extreme recklessness or intentional harm, these are awarded to punish the at-fault party to avoid similar behavior and action in the future.

What Should You Do After An Accident In Los Angeles?

The actions you take right after an accident can seriously affect your health and right to get compensation. Here’s what you should remember to do if you’re able after an accident:

  1. Get To Safety – If possible, move to a safer location. If in a car accident, move your vehicle out of traffic and attend to any immediate injuries you or others might have. Call 911 as soon as possible.
  2. Seek Medical Attention – Even if you feel fine, our Los Angeles accident lawyers advise getting checked out by a doctor. Some injuries aren’t immediately obvious. Also, medical records are important for your claim and damage assessment.
  3. Cooperate With Law Enforcement – It is vital to have an official accident report on file, especially if the other party disputes your version of events. Make sure to discuss the accident only with the police and lawyers and not with other parties involved.
  4. Document The Scene – Take photos of the damage, the scene, and any visible injuries. Safely document everything related to the accident so you have your own evidence of what happened.
  5. Exchange Information – Get information from others involved as well as the witnesses. This could be their names, contact information, insurance policies, license plates, and more.

What You Should Not Do After An Accident In Los Angeles

After an accident, it’s easy to make mistakes in the heat of the moment. Even then, our Los Angeles accident lawyers suggest keeping the following in mind so as not to jeopardize your claim for compensation:

  1. Never Admit Fault – Don’t apologize or say anything accepting blame, even if you feel partially responsible. Let the investigation uncover who’s really at fault.
  2. Avoid Recorded Statements To Insurers – Insurers are trained to get information they can use to minimize or deny your coverage.
  3. Don’t Sign Anything Without Legal Review – Insurance companies might offer a quick settlement. It’s likely far less than what you deserve. This is why you should have your documents read through by your accident lawyer. Remember, whatever document you sign cannot be reversed.
  4. Follow Your Doctor’s Orders – Insurance companies can argue that your injuries are not serious if you skip appointments or ignore treatments. Always listen to your doctors and focus on full recovery. Otherwise, you may face long-lasting effects of even the slightest injury from an accident.
  5. Don’t Delay Seeking Legal Help – The sooner you get the help of our accident lawyers in Los Angeles, the better protected your rights will be. Victims who seek representation are more likely to receive 2-3 times the settlement amount because extensive investigations can bring about more factors and damages you may not be aware of.
