Almost every amusement park, gym, stadium, concert venue, and event in Los Angeles has some form of liability waiver that guests must sign before entering the premises. While you may think nothing of them, these legal documents can become very important if you are injured. In that case, you might assume that a waiver automatically removes your right to file a premises liability claim, but not necessarily. You may have more options than you think.
Most parents anticipate their child’s first car with both pride and anxiety. Your teenager may have put in a lot of hours on the road and rigorously studied for the test, but it is hard to let go of the fear that they could be hurt in an accident. This anxiety is not unfounded, as teenagers are often involved in more serious accidents than other demographics.
Calling the police after you’ve been in a bike accident may seem like a waste of time. After all, what will the officer even do? The damage has already been done, and now, you just want to file your claim and recover from your injuries as quickly as possible. Well, the truth is that failing to report the accident can actually impact the amount of compensation you get from your claim.
The responsibilities that come with driving a semi-truck can never be understated. Drivers are expected to travel hundreds of miles and safely transport large, heavy cargo, some of which include hazardous materials. One mistake could put dozens of people on the road in danger of suffering catastrophic, lifelong injuries, which is why only the most experienced and focused drivers should be given the job.
No one can doubt the massive changes brought on by COVID-19. The pandemic has completely overturned many people’s lives and added new pressures to an already struggling economy. As personal injury attorneys, we were not immune to these changes, but along the way we learned new ways to help our clients — and the pandemic has only reaffirmed our duty to serve those injured in serious accidents.
No one can doubt that Los Angeles County’s streets are in desperate need of major infrastructure changes to improve public safety. Our county has implemented a Vision Zero plan, a multi-year strategy to reduce traffic fatalities across multiple cities and protect pedestrians from reckless drivers. While there are many facets to this plan and it will not be complete for years, new research suggests that centerline hardening could cut pedestrian accidents in half.
Truck weigh stations can be found all along the freeways of California, and even across the country. While it is fairly obvious that these stations are meant to weigh trucks, what you may not have realized is that weigh stations also play an important role in ensuring that truck drivers are awake, alert, and following federal regulations.

Ridesharing has been all the rage over the past few years, shaking up the rental-car industry, taxicabs, chauffeur services, and even California’s laws. The convenience of having an on-demand driver pick you up and take you to your destination is freeing, and its success has also sparked a new innovation in the tech industry. Not only can people take advantage of ridesharing services, but they can also use car-sharing services like Turo.
The expansion of ridesharing in recent years has made getting around Los Angeles County much easier for people who don’t want to deal with the hassle of public transportation. However, what legal rights you have when using such a service is rather unclear. If you were injured in a car accident while using a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft, you may be concerned about how you can receive money for your medical bills and who you can hold liable in a claim.
