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.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most devastating injuries an individual can deal with. Damage to the brain not only requires immediate, and often expensive, medical treatment, but also carries the potential of a lifelong disability. While your immediate concern may be to cover the costs of your emergency room bills and surgery, it is always important to plan for the future. Oftentimes this means developing a life-care plan, which accident victims are allowed to include in a personal injury claim if someone else caused their TBI.
Dogs may be among the most popular pets in the United States, and we see a ton in Glendale, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t dangerous. Any dog can be aggressive, and any dog can cause serious damage during an attack, even a smaller breed.
If you have suffered serious injuries due to a pet attack, then you deserve compensation. But who could be considered liable for a dog bite?
Roughly 90% of personal injury claims are settled out of court between a plaintiff’s lawyer and an insurance company. But what about the remaining 10%? What if the defendant’s insurance company refuses to pay a claim or will not offer proper compensation for the plaintiff’s injuries? Well, in California, so long as the plaintiff is still within the statute of limitations, then he or she can file a lawsuit in civil court for damages.
A police report is one of the most important tools for filing an auto accident claim. With this seemingly simple document, an accident victim can clearly show how the other driver caused their injuries and why they should receive compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.
