What Causes Interstate 405 Accidents?
I-405 is a vital hub for commuters and commercial traffic in the nexus of Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Anyone who has driven on the San Diego Freeway knows that it is heavily congested with commuters and freight haulers, and traffic accidents along Interstate 405 are a common sight. Over our many years of practice, we have handled I-405 accidents arising from:
- Stop-and-go traffic (rear-end accidents)
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Reckless driving
- Drunk/drugged driving
- Fatigued driving
- Highway defects
- Vehicle defects
- Unsafe construction sites
Though many collisions on I-405 occur at slow speeds in heavy traffic, these collisions can still result in serious injuries (e.g. whiplash) to vehicle occupants, as well as fatal injuries to motorcyclists who are especially vulnerable. If/when traffic is moving, high-impact collisions can cause catastrophic injuries.
No matter the cause of the accident in which you have been injured, J&Y Law is prepared to fight for you. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can win you the compensation you need and deserve.
Why You Need a Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney
California is an at-fault state for insurance purposes. This means that if you have been injured in an I-405 accident that was not your fault, you can pursue compensation from the other driver’s insurance company. You should never go up against an insurer alone, however, or even talk to anyone at an insurance company, or sign any documents, before you contact an experienced attorney.
It takes an aggressive J&Y car accident attorney to protect your rights and make sure your case is handled fairly. If the insurance company refuses to pay the full value of your claim, we will take your I-405 accident case to court.

What You Need to Know About California Car Accident Claims
In an I-405 accident claim, you must be able to prove that the other driver’s negligent or reckless conduct caused the accident that resulted in your injuries. This is why you need to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer, one who knows how to demonstrate the necessary elements of negligence in an injury claim.
You should know that if you were at fault for the accident in any way, you can still recover damages, however, your final award will be reduced by the percentage of blame assigned to you by a court or claims adjuster. Once again, it takes a skilled attorney to show how the other driver was at fault for the I-405 accident and limit any liability assigned to you.
Finally, the state’s statute of limitations applies to car accident claims. In short, you have two years from the date of the Interstate 405 accident to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. In any case, It is crucial to contact an attorney as soon as possible so evidence can be collected before it is spoiled and witnesses can be interviewed while their memories are fresh.
