Being injured at a friend’s house or your favorite restaurant can make some people feel awkward about pursuing compensation. Most people assume they would have to sue the property owner, who could be a family member, friend, or small business owner, to recover damages. However, many premises liability claims are covered under a liability insurance policy, meaning you will likely file an insurance claim rather than a lawsuit.
Reckless driving is a very real threat on the streets of Los Angeles. People can become angry, aggressive, and rash, thus putting everyone else at extreme risk for injury. Aggressive drivers are known to cause catastrophic accidents, assault other drivers and passengers, and perform incredibly risky behaviors such as running stop signs and red lights. That is why knowing how to spot an aggressive driver and knowing how to respond to them is incredibly important.
It is no surprise that biking or riding a motorcycle around Los Angeles County is dangerous. Southern California drivers tend to pay little attention to those around them, and the chaos of our roadways almost ensures multiple collisions between cyclists and bikers every day. Oftentimes, these accidents don’t even occur when the car is on, as negligent drivers and passengers can easily swing a car door open and strike a nearby bike, motorized or not.
Such an incident is referred to as dooring, and these incidents can have serious consequences.
For some, traffic and car accidents are synonymous with Los Angeles, but in the first few months of the California Stay at Home Order, authorities noticed a sudden drop in major accidents. This was likely due to the lack of vehicles on the road, as accidents are largely limited to single-vehicle collisions outside of rush hour in major cities. Sadly, this reprieve appears to be at an end as more and more people are going back to work and crowding LA roads.
Driving through an intersection can be one of the most dangerous acts you do while operating a vehicle. Intersections are hotbeds for car accidents as drivers often ignore the right of way, get confused about who is supposed to go next, and even speed through without stopping. While intersections are often necessary, especially in a traffic-heavy city like Los Angeles, they are still incredibly dangerous. That is why we have compiled a list of the top five most dangerous intersections in Los Angeles.

Distracted driving is far too common among teen drivers as smartphones have become a natural part of life for them. Sadly, this reckless behavior poses a serious risk to others who share the streets, roads, and highways around Los Angeles County. Even with widely disseminated information on the dangers of distracted driving in news stories, at school, and in driver training programs, it is still common for many teenagers to talk, text, or post on social media while behind the wheel. When you combine this dangerous driving behavior with inexperience and limited driving skills, it can be a recipe for disaster.
Anyone who has driven on an LA freeway has witness some form or road rage, from tailgating to swerving at other drivers. This behavior is not only dangerous, but it is also criminal. Many times, it can lead to a catastrophic accident and costly injuries.
