By Aghabegian & Associates on August 8, 2020

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.

Distracted Driving and Teens: Educating Your Child

By Aghabegian & Associates on July 9, 2020

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.

Know Your Worth: How Insurance Companies Offer Low Settlements

By Aghabegian & Associates on May 13, 2020

No one likes dealing with insurance companies or reading through the complex legal language that make up insurance policies. They are often extremely complicated, use vague or ultra-specific wording, and are hardly accessible to the everyday reader. This is done on purpose to keep accidents victims from pursuing a claim and it can be very successful.

Ultimately, no one wants to have to contact an insurance company. We like to treat is as an invisible safety net for injuries that will never happen. But when we do collide with that net, we often find that insurance companies are readily prepared to simplify our wounds or dismiss our claims.

What are the Laws Regarding Work Zones in California?

By Aghabegian & Associates on March 6, 2020

With over 170,000 miles of public roads in California, it’s no question that road construction and renovation crews are busy all year round – especially on the I-10 and I-5. And while the constant renovations provide us with continually improved roads, there is the perpetual downside of dealing with “work zones” that give us limited pathways through wider roadways.

Rush Hour in Los Angeles Equals More Than Just Traffic

By Aghabegian & Associates on February 28, 2020

If you’re like most Angelenos, you understand the horror of rush hour traffic in one of the worst traffic areas in the US. Between the 101, 105, 110, 210, 57, 5 and other freeways – there’s no avoiding the stop-and-go traffic at certain times of the day unless you’re one of the lucky few who work from home or on a schedule that avoids rush hour. Unfortunately, rush hour doesn’t just mean wasting your valuable time in traffic – it also means a significantly increased risk of being involved in a vehicle accident. One out of every four accidents in Los Angeles occurs during rush hour, possibly due to the increased stress, fatigue, frustration, and distraction that occurs when people are stuck on one of our many heavily traveled freeways.
