Personal Injury Attorneys in Burbank
Burbank is a city in the southeast part of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County, located 12 miles northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. It owes its name to David Burbank, a Los Angeles dentist who established a sheep ranch there in 1867. Today it’s home to Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros. Studios, and Nickelodeon Animation Studio.
Burbank has good traffic safety statistics. For example, the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results shows Burbank ranks well out of 59 cities with similar-sized populations.
However, like any other city in California, Burbank is not immune to accidents caused by negligent behavior.
If you or a loved one sustained serious injuries in an accident, you might have a claim for damages.
Our Burbank personal injury attorneys help clients who have been badly injured in an accident due to the negligence of another party to get the compensation they deserve.
Serious accident injuries include:
Legally, personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
There are three grounds on which you can file a personal injury claim, namely:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission (failure to act) by an individual or entity that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others. It has four key elements, namely:
- Duty of care owed – The other party owed you a duty of care.
- Duty of care breached – The other party failed to fulfill their duty due to a careless act or failure to act.
- Causation – The other party’s breach of duty was the proximate (main) cause of the accident.
- Damages – You suffered compensable losses as a result of the accident.
A personal injury attorney at Cohen & Marzban will gladly give you a more detailed explanation based on your unique case.
Accidents that often cause personal injuries include the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are often the number one reason for personal injury claims. Accidents caused by speeding, driving under the influence, tiredness, improper turning, aggressive driving, and distracted driving can lead to serious injuries.
Truck Accidents – Being involved in an accident with a large truck weighing significantly 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 Burbank. Unfortunately, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher chance of sustaining serious or lethal injuries if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists often don’t pay enough attention to motorcycles on the road.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – In most cities, including Burbank, many people enjoy the convenience of using ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft. It’s often a better alternative to using public transportation services as you’re dropped off at your final destination. However, 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 countless people suffer injuries from slip and fall accidents. Typical causes include wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
