Sidewalk Injuries and Liability

By Aghabegian & Associates on October 10, 2020

When getting around a city like Los Angeles, Glendale, or Santa Monica, sidewalks are a must.

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.
