Personal Injury Attorneys in Pasadena

Founded in 1886, Pasadena was the second city, after the City of Los Angeles, to be incorporated in what is now Los Angeles County. It’s the most populated city in the San Gabriel Valley and the ninth-largest city in Los Angeles County. But like any other city in California, bad accidents caused by negligent behavior do occur.

For example, the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results shows how Pasadena ranks out of 59 cities:

  • Ranks #12 in the total number of crash victims killed or injured – more than 900 per year.
  • Ranks #3 in the number of pedestrians killed or injured.
  • Ranks #6 in the number of bicyclists killed or injured.

Due to its close proximity to LA, Pasadena benefits from the fact that millions of tourists stream into the City of Angels each year for both business and leisure.  Pasadena offers a whole host of interesting sites and experiences that both tourists and residents alike can visit to get a little taste of what the city is all about. Some of the more popular points of interest include:

Rose Bowl Stadium: This massive outdoor athletic stadium is best known for hosting the highest attended college football game in the United States, the Rose Bowl, from which it gets its name. On January 1, tens of thousands of spectators flock to Pasadena to pack out this 92,542 seat venue to witness the conference champions of the Big Ten and the Pac-12 face off against one another.

Old Pasadena: As its name would suggest, this neighborhood of Pasadena, sometimes referred to as “Old Town”, was the original commercial center of the city that has since evolved into a historic area for shopping and entertainment. Visitors can marvel at the charming architecture while window shopping or enjoying a lunch with their family at one of the neighborhood’s popular restaurants.

Kidspace Children’s Museum: For those who are visiting Pasadena with their families, this children’s museum is a great way to spend an afternoon and educate the young ones with an exciting, interactive learning experience. Be sure to visit their website before arriving to check out which exhibits are being currently featured!

Norton Simon Museum: Formerly known as the Pasadena Art Institute and the Pasadena Art Museum, this gorgeous domed structure houses a large collection of paintings and other works from both Europe and Asia. Art enthusiasts visiting Pasadena can enjoy an afternoon exploring this stunning building and its works as well as marveling at the impressive sculptures scattered across its grounds.

Due to the enormous population and constant stream of visitors to the city each year, Los Angeles has more personal injuries than almost any other city in the entire country, ranking 3rd in auto accidents alone.

Personal Injuries

Personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.

The three grounds on which you can file a personal injury claim are:

  • Negligence (the most common)
  • Strict Liability
  • Intentional Wrongs

Negligence is any act or omission by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others. It has four key elements, namely:

  1. Duty of care owed – The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care.
  2. Duty of care breached – The defendant failed to fulfill their duty due to a careless act or failure to act.
  3. Causation – The defendant’s breach of duty was the proximate (main) cause of the accident.
  4. Damages – The plaintiff suffered compensable losses as a result of the accident.

Accidents that often result in personal injuries include:

Car Accidents – Car accidents are often the number one cause of personal injury claims in Pasadena and other cities across the country. The leading causes of car accidents include speeding, driving under the influence, fatigue, improper turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.

Truck Accidents – Being involved in an accident with a large truck weighing between 20 and 30 times more than your car can have grave consequences. According to statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), about 97% of vehicle occupants killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck are occupants of the passenger vehicles.

Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is a fun and economical way of traveling in Pasadena. Unfortunately, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher chance of sustaining bad injuries if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are often not observant enough and fail to pay close enough attention to motorcycles.

Uber and Lyft Accidents – In most cities, including Pasadena, many people enjoy the convenience of using ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, to reach their destination. It’s often a better alternative to using public transportation services. But as the number of people using ride-hailing services increases, so do the number of Uber and Lyft accidents.

Slip and Fall Accidents – According to the World Health Organization (WHO), falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Every year many people are injured in slip and fall accidents in Pasadena. Typical causes include wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
