Southern California & Motor Vehicle Accidents
Southern California leads the country in automobile registrations and leads the nation in terms of annual automotive sales & damages. Consequently, it is no surprise that car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents & pedestrian accidents continue to be on the rise in Los Angeles which means more accident victims. Automobile wrecks can range from a minor fender bender to a violent crash that results in wrongful death or serious catastrophic injuries and can have a devastating effect on your quality of life.
20% Of All Motor Vehicle Fatalities in The U.S Occur In Los Angeles
Automotive crashes are one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States. The real question is what are the statistics? According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, automobile wrecks are the fourth leading cause of premature death throughout the County. In 2019, 236 people were killed in collisions out of 54,000 people who had accidents.
Of those, more than half were people who were struck by cars. The tragic loss of a loved one is undoubtedly an overwhelming event. A family member’s wrongful death in a car accident case can be especially challenging if the deceased person was the head of the household and leaves behind family members.
What to do if you are involved in an Accident?
You must stop and protect the scene. Then, you need to call the police and make an accurate record of the incident. You should also take pictures, exchange information with all parties involved, report the accident to your insurance company, and seek medical attention immediately. It is also vital that you keep everything documented, and equally important that you protect your rights.
Police Reports Can Help in Traffic collision Cases
No matter if you hit someone or someone hits you, call the police even if there are no apparent damages. This results in many things such as an investigation, an accurate representation of who said what, if the other driver admits fault for the accident, negligence or witness testimonials are taken this can help you later on. Sometimes damages are not apparent or part of the other party’s story can change once they realize you plan on filing a lawsuit.

Personal Injury Attorney That Knows Insurance Companies Tricks
The insurance companies goal is to resolve the claim by paying you the least amount of money possible especially if you live in an area like Los Angeles or Orange County. For example, it is common for an insurance company to haggle over the cost of repairs and may suggest utilizing aftermarket parts in lieu of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. Insurance providers often try to tempt you into a quick settlement for only a fraction of what your case is actually worth. Make sure to contact an attorney before allowing the insurance companies to deceive you via settlements.
The personal injury attorneys at GCE Law knows all the actions they take to pay you less. No other Los Angeles personal injury firm has the firsthand Insight into insurance providers like we do.
Right to a Similar Rental
Additionally, while your car is getting repaired, you may be entitled to a rental from their insurance company that is comparable to your vehicle that was wrecked during the automobile accident. By law, you are entitled to rent a “similar” vehicle for the duration of time reasonably necessary to repair or replace yours. Your personal injury attorney can help with this.
All injury victims in Los Angeles should know when it comes to personal injuries there are two broad categories that are the direct result of automobile accidents: Typically, number one is “impact” wounds that are the result of an individual’s body striking an interior part of the vehicle. For example, one’s head might strike a window causing brain injuries. Meanwhile, number two is “penetrating” wounds are cuts and scrapes from broken glass or flying debris. Both can be very painful and require immediate medical attention and costly medical bills.
Soft Tissue Trauma
Soft tissue wounds are wounds to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Soft tissue lacerations are the most common type of car accident injuries. The most common types of soft tissue wounds following an accident include “whiplash.” Whiplash occurs when the neck muscles and ligaments are suddenly jolted. Further, mid-back and low-back soft tissue damage often occur in crashes because spinal cord injuries usually cause the spine to flex, extend, rotate and slip in an unnatural way. Soft tissue trauma can be the most serious due to the potential injury & harm of the spinal cord.
According to medical experts, some of the most painful injuries from a car crash are not immediately apparent while others are apparent immediately. In some cases, soft tissue wounds may not be apparent for days, weeks, or even months depending on the area. Therefore, it is imperative that you seek medical treatment right away following an automobile accident injury. Also, when in a state of shock after an accident, some times you don’t feel pain until days later.
Lost Income Situation
If you were forced to take time from work due to an automobile accident caused by someone else, you are likely to be entitled to compensation, even if you’re a freelancer, an independent contractor, or a sole proprietor. Additionally, you might be entitled to lost earning capacity, and lost compensation. Calculating and proving your lost income can be difficult. Therefore, it is vital that you hire an experienced California personal injury attorney or law firm for legal representation.
