Encino Car Accident Attorneys

Protecting Accident Victims' Rights in Southern California

For most of us in Los Angeles, and California in general, a motor vehicle is simply a way of life and we don’t even think about the fact that we drive or ride in some form of a motor vehicle every day. Because we take driving and riding in cars, trucks, and motorcycles for granted, we often forget just how dangerous driving can be and how often serious accidents occur. Unfortunately, as the population of California grows, so does the number of car accidents. The U.S. Department of Labor reported that California ranked second nationwide in the total number of vehicle collision deaths in 2016, with 3,623 fatalities.

In addition to this, hundreds of thousands of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents in California every year. Our experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyers know that nearly half of those injured suffer permanent disabilities including brain damage, paralysis, amputation injuries, and other serious afflictions that negatively affect their lives. In cases resulting in death, the family members of those killed suffer emotionally and, all too often, financially, making it even harder for them to mourn the loss of their loved one and to try to put the pieces of their lives back together.

Why Do I Need an Encino Car Accident Attorney?

If you’ve lost a loved one or suffered a serious injury in an accident because of another driver’s carelessness, you have the right to hold that person responsible. A lawyer can’t erase the tragedy of the accident, but we can help make sure that you receive the full monetary compensation you are entitled to for the terrible losses caused by the accident. A motor vehicle accident lawsuit can also help pay the high medical bills and other costs associated with an automobile accident, and provide financial support for those who’ve lost their ability to earn an income due to an injury or unexpected death. The team at Vahdat & Aboudi, APLC has helped served victims across all Southern California territories, so whether you are in Encino, Los Angeles, Studio City, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, or any other town in California, we can help you with your accident recovery.

Don’t Fight the Insurance Company Alone

Regardless of how nice insurance adjusters may seem, they are not your friend. It is normal practice for insurance companies to train their adjusters to call car accident victims within 24 hours following the accident. They will take any steps possible to settle your claim before you have the opportunity to consult, let alone hire, a Los Angeles car accident attorney. The reason is, that once you hire an attorney your case value will automatically increase.

And despite popular belief, just because the insurance company wants to settle with you it does not mean they are releasing the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters have only one goal, and that is to settle your claim for as little as possible. So, before you even talk to an insurance adjuster, call Vahdat & Aboudi, APLC to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced attorneys. We can help you get the full compensation that you deserve for the injuries you have sustained.

What Can I Do to Reduce My Risk of an Auto Accident?

While it is impossible to eliminate the possibility of an accident completely, there are steps you can take to reduce your chances of suffering a serious injury or death if you are in an accident:

  • Buckle up! – Research finds that the proper use of a seatbelt reduces the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passenger car occupants by as much as 45 percent and the risk of moderate-to-severe injury by up to 50 percent.
  • Don’t drive under the influence of alcohol, recreational drugs, or any prescription drugs if your doctor advises you not to do so.
  • Don’t allow your cell phone to distract you while driving. That call or text can wait until you reach your destination or until you have a chance to pull over to the side of the road.
  • Put children in the appropriate child safety seat – According to the NHTSA, proper use of child safety seats reduces the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers in car accidents.
  • Obey the speed limit – The NHTSA reports that 30 percent of fatal motor vehicle accidents are speed-related. It simply isn’t worth the risk to save a few minutes of drive time.
  • Keep up with safety recalls for your vehicle. While many recalls are for issues that don’t affect vehicle safety, it is important for you to keep up with the recalls in case an issue is discovered that impairs your vehicle’s safety. Go to https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls to find any recalls for your vehicle using your VIN.
  • Watch out for pedestrians and cyclists – Share the road! For more information about this topic, visit our pedestrian accidents page.
