If you need a Los Angeles car accident lawyer to represent you in and out of court, there are many qualified attorneys to choose from. Los Angeles is historically known for the poor traffic and rampant accidents throughout the city, so if you are the victim you will want someone experienced to handle your case.

If you are involved in a car crash you will want an attorney who specializes in motor vehicle accident law as they will also know the intricacies of dealing with insurance agencies, coordinating personal injury settlements, and can use their expertise to get you financial compensation.

Choose a traffic accidents lawyer near you that you can meet with in person and who makes you feel comfortable about your situation. The statute of limitations in California for traffic accidents is only two years. This means that if there is going to be a case brought forward, it must happen before two years from the date of the accident. While a case does not have to be filed right away, it is best if an attorney is at least consulted as to whether a case should be filed or if the evidence necessary for a future case has been collected. It may take as long as two years to build an effective case or discover medical issues as a result of a car accident, so maintaining important records from the very beginning is important.

The outcome of your legal situation heavily depends on what both parties are saying in the accident report taken by the Los Angeles police, so be sure to communicate what was said to your attorney.

Car Accident Areas and Intersections in L.A.

The most amount of car accidents involving pedestrians in L.A. actually happens in the downtown area where there is the highest concentration of dangerous intersections across the whole city according to the LA Times. This area contains 48 intersections which since 2002 have produced 11 deaths simply from car accidents, the most deadly in this area being along 5th st and intersecting at Los Angeles St and South Broadway.

The single most dangerous intersection is actually removed from the downtown area, where the Pacific Coast Highway intersects Hollywood Boulevard. This intersection has been responsible for the most number of car accident fatalities in the L.A. area since 2002 at seven fatalities.

The second most dangerous areas for pedestrians and car accidents alike are the heavily trafficked Koreatown and Westlake areas. They each contain over 20 intersections where accidents have occurred from the early 2000’s to today although these intersections have proven to be less deadly than the downtown area.

Common Types of Car Accidents in L.A.

There are many types of car accidents that can result in the need for a lawyer and each case will be unique. A local car accident attorney discovers who is responsible, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover in damages if the accident was someone else's fault.

Some attorneys may specialize in uninsured motorists, recovering property damages, defective car products or hit and run situations so asking about these types of specializations and being honest about the details of the accident during your consultation is important.

In Los Angeles the largest number of accidents are caused simply by negligence of one party to obey traffic laws. Cedars-Sinai Hospital, one of the largest in the Los Angeles area, takes in many new patients every day as a result of car accident related injuries across the city.

Low Speed Impact Accidents: These types of accidents occur when one or more parties are going under 10mph. These accidents usually have little medical repercussions but can result in property damage.

Front Impact: A front impact accident occurs when the front of a vehicle comes into contact with a stationary object such as a wall, light pole, animal or other object.

Rear End: This is the most common type of accident around the L.A. area, and it happens when a driver is impacted on the rear end of the vehicle. Typically these types of accidents are caused by drivers who are simply not paying attention and perhaps distracted by the radio or using their cell phone while driving.

Side Collision: Accidents involving side collisions can be some of the most dangerous auto accidents as they often result in medical issues. These accidents occur when the side of a vehicle is impacted by another vehicle.

Motorcycle or Truck Related: When a vehicle other than a car is involved in an accident, a special attorney may be brought in as a specialization. Attorneys who specialize in motorcycle or truck related accidentsoften have experience with specialists who can better determine fault outside of the usual car accident scenario.

This list is not meant to be comprehensive, but merely a way to help you find the right lawyer to handle your case. Asking a potential attorney you may hire if they have experience with handling your type of case can help you to pick out the most qualified lawyer.

Types of Recoverable Damages from Car Accidents

There are two types of economic damages that can be recurred if your car accident case is taken: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages refer to damages that have a concrete value associated with them and would take a monetary cost to replace. These damages can include:

  • Medical Rehabilitation
  • Lost wages or loss of future earnings
  • Loss of home services

Non-economic damages refer to the types of damage that are intangible and do not have a concrete cost associated with them. These types of damages can include:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Mental or emotional distress
  • Loss of a companion

If you are unsure about the type of damage you have incurred, ask your lawyer about the options. Choose a car accident lawyer who can fight for you and get you the help you deserve, no matter what type of accident it is.
