Los Angeles is the second most populated and trafficked city of the U.S after New York. The city is full of cars and crazy road traffic. But New York on the other hand has a majority of regular folks preferring trains. With over 4 million population in the city, two facts stand out the most – the crime rate, the amount of accidents and injuries.

Measurements

Before we move to the core, here are a few stuffs you should think through about Los Angeles:

  1. Figure of death rate in vehicle accidents is near to 1000 every year.
  2. Pedestrian casualty rate is double the amount in New York.
  3. Over 100,000 Injury lawsuits and approximately 20,000 reported hit and run crashes each year.

When You Are In Trouble

If you crash your vehicle or get hurt by the irresponsible behavior of somebody else, there is always a solution for this! Just get yourself proper medical care and this is where the insurance pays off.

Later, when you are physically all set, go and find yourself an accident lawyer. Clearly, you won’t understand this at first, not till you see the tons of medical bills that follow right after it. But like I said, there’s nothing to worry about. Seek help and interview some of the most skilled attorneys in your area. And then you can select the one who will bill you the least, but with a greater chance of winning.

The job of the lawyer is defending you. He will do all the legal work on your behalf so that you can get a break and ease into your usual routine. In the beginning, he will

  1. Bring together evidences in the form of crash reports, witnesses etc. After that,
  2. When he is ready to file the lawsuit, he will reach to the insurance company of the defendant and ask for a good settlement offer. If they decline to do so,
  3. He will start a lawsuit in the court and will win it for you after some time.

Most of the accident lawyers offer free calculation. And when they win the case, they will ask you rendering to the sum of the settlement. Their charges generally fall between 20% and are negotiable.

At the end of the day, when you are all done with it you can set off with life. And for those of you who were not pleased with the result of the case, be patient and think of what David Feherty said, “It’s how you treat your disappointment that controls how you treat your achievement.”

    The conditions of a roadway can be bad for a number of reasons, including weather, poor design or maintenance, or the presence of objects or debris on the roadway. Such factors can cause or contribute to accidents.

    At times an accident will result from a defect with a driver’s vehicle, such as a tire blowout, brake failure, or other mechanical failure. A claim might also arise against a mechanic or service center whose work left a vehicle in a hazardous condition. Where the driver who causes an accident fails to stop at the accident scene, it may be difficult for the victim of the accident to later identify the at-fault driver so as to bring a lawsuit.

      In a number of states, courts are increasingly receptive to the argument that where a driver who causes an accident is talking on a cellular phone, the call was work-related, and the driver’s employer expects employees to handle work-related phone calls while driving, the employer may share liability for an accident caused by the employee.

    Motorcycle drivers are susceptible to serious injury, even in collisions which would be relatively minor had they occurred between cars. Some suggest that motorcyclists suffer from a predisposition by juries to blame them for causing an accident, even where the driver of a car was clearly negligent.

    Bicyclists are vulnerable to serious injury when hit by cars, and are aslo susceptible to having drivers open car doors in front of them – a hazard which can cause them to be caterpaulted over the car door in a collision.

      Drivers often report that they did not see the bicyclist until after the collision, or that they misjudged the bicyclist’s speed. Some bicyclists engage in very hazardous actions, such as ignoring traffic signals or riding on the wrong side of the road, making an accident much more likely. The most severe and lasting injuries to bicyclists tend to be head injuries, so helmet use is encouraged.

    Bus accidents can be quite serious, given the size and mass of a typical bus, and the fact that passengers are usually unrestrained. Special issues can arise in accidents involving school buses, and in the context of loading and unloading passengers.

    States may limit an injury victim’s ability to sue when the driver of the vehicle that causes an accident is a governmental employee who is working at the time of the accident, or where the accident involves a government-owned vehicle.

    The drivers of “big rigs” are subject to state and federal regulation, governing how many hours a day they can drive, how much sleep they are to get each night, and the condition and maintenance of their trucks. Drivers typically get paid by the mile driven, and thus have a strong incentive to ignore rules which limit their driving time. Obviously, when a semi truck causes an accident, the consequences to any smaller vehicle and its passengers can be devastating.

    Where the driver of a vehicle has the owner’s permission to operate that vehicle, many jurisdictions will hold the owner jointly liable for injuries caused by the driver’s negligent operation of the vehicle.

    If you are involved in a car accident, you may benefit from reviewing these suggestions about what to do after a car accident, and from consulting a personal injury lawyer. Motorists whose ability to drive is impaired as a result of the consumption of alcohol or drugs are more likely to cause car accidents. At times, such defects will result in liability by the governmental agency responsible for the design and maintenance of the roadway, although governmental immunity may apply.

    Tell the doctor if you have any loss of memory, headache, blood or fluid in your ear, dizziness, tinnitis (ringing in the ears), disorientation, nausea, confusion, or any other unusual physical or mental feeling.
