Personal Injury Attorneys in Calabasas
Located about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, Calabasas is a city in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles County.
The name Calabasas may be derived from the Spanish word Calabaza, meaning squash, pumpkin, or gourd. However, some say it means “where the geese fly” in the local Native American language.
We might never know the true origin of the name. But what we do know is that Calabasas, like any other city, is not immune to accidents caused by the negligent behavior of others.
For example, according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results, Calabasas ranks #7 out of 103 cities for the number of motorcyclists killed or injured every year.
Note: The OTS Crash Ranking Results compare a city’s traffic safety statistics to those of other cities with similar-sized populations.

Personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
The three grounds for a personal injury lawsuit are:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission (failure to act) by the other party that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others.
Contact a personal injury lawyer at Cohen & Marzban for a more detailed explanation based on your unique circumstances.
Common accidents that might cause personal injuries include the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are one of the top reasons residents of Calabasas suffer personal injuries. Causes typically include speeding, driving under the influence, tiredness, wrong turning, aggressive driving, and distracted driving.
Truck Accidents – Trucks are typically less maneuverable than other vehicles on the road. A large truck weighing between 20 and 30 times more than your car is often unable to stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid an accident.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is a fun and economical way of traveling in Calabasas. However, as a rider or passenger, you have a higher risk of suffering serious or even lethal injuries if you are involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are often not observant enough to be on the lookout for motorcycles.
As mentioned earlier, Calabasas ranks #7 out of 103 cities for the number of motorcyclists killed or injured every year.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are a popular and convenient way of traveling in Calabasas. However, that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a safe way to travel. 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. And Calabasas is no exception. Every year many residents sustain significant injuries from slip and fall accidents. Reasons often include walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
