Car Accidents in Los Angeles
Los Angeles is, unfortunately, known for its crowded roads and traffic problems. With more people on the road due to lower gas prices and an improved economy, car accidents, truck accidents, and pedestrian accidents are becoming more and more frequent. As a matter of fact, according to the Los Angeles Times, statistics show that car accidents increased 14 percent during the first half of 2015 as compared to the year before.
If you are injured in a car accident in Los Angeles, there are many issues that require your immediate attention. Since you are hurt, and most likely receiving emergency medical care, it’s a blessing to be able to contact a highly competent personal injury attorney to take over the necessary paperwork and legwork involved in dealing with insurance companies, repair shops, police, rental car companies, etc.
It is also important to remember that when you consult with a personal injury attorney from J&Y, you will owe no money upfront. The lawyer will work with you on a contingency basis, meaning that you will only have to pay if you receive compensation through a settlement or a verdict after trial.
Pedestrian Accidents in Los Angeles
As in most cities or towns, a large percentage of road accidents occur at intersections, and some intersections are much more dangerous than others. According to a recent Los Angeles Times analysis, nearly a quarter of traffic accidents in the city involving pedestrians occur at fewer than 1 percent of the city’s intersections. Many of the most dangerous crossings are in the densely populated areas between downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood.
Clearly, when there is a collision involving a pedestrian, that individual is at much more risk of serious injury than either the driver or a passenger in the car. Evidence of the danger involved can be found in the fact that the 1 in 10 accidents in which pedestrians were involved between 2002 and 2013 represented more than 35 percent of road fatalities. Many of these fatalities occurred on long, straight streets or near freeways. When a fatality occurs due to the negligence of another, your attorney may pursue a case of wrongful death so that you and your family, though grieving and traumatized, will have someone fighting for you to receive just compensation for, among other things, future earnings of the deceased.
Construction Accidents in Los Angeles
In cities with as much physical territory as L.A., that are growing by leaps and bounds, there is a great deal of construction underway at any given moment. For this reason, construction accidents that victimize both construction workers and, at times, uninvolved passersby, are not uncommon. Though steps have been, and are being taken to make construction sites safer, in the U.S. there were 4,379 worker fatalities in 2015. More than one-fifth of these occurred in the field of construction.
While many types of injuries may occur at construction sites, construction fatalities are commonly divided into “The Fatal Four”:
- Being struck by an object
- Caught in-between accidents in which victims are compressed or crushed between pieces of equipment or under collapsing structures or debris
If you have been injured, or someone you love has been killed in a construction accident due to the negligence of another, you should contact J&Y for a free comprehensive evaluation of your case.
